Restorative yoga, introduced to many by B.K.S. Iyengar, is an active relaxation practice. With the use of blankets, pillows and bolsters the body is put into simple, restful and supportive postures to help reduce muscle tension, relieve stress, help with lymph flow, and induce a relaxed state of being. Restorative yoga is a wonderful practice when you are recovering from illness or injury, to help relieve emotional or physical stress, or to just renew and restore your body at the end of a long day.
The poses are maintained for an effortless 10-15 minutes each while focusing on the soothing sounds of Corey's Didgeridoo and other instruments. Your nervous system will be coaxed into the “dreamstate” of deep presence and are likely to feel refreshed, renewed and rejuvenated.
The Restorative Yoga class is held at Asheville Community Yoga every friday at 4pm.
