Restorative yoga is a practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. . During the long holds of restorative yoga, your muscles are allowed to relax deeply. It’s a unique feeling because props, rather than your muscles, are used to support your body. Restorative postures are done primarily on the ground using many props and/or chairs to assist students ito a pose and to facilitate maximum relaxation. Many classes at TYC include restorative postures. Occasionally Teachers will do a whole class of restorative postures.
Yin workshop classes are held monthly at TYC and Yin poses can be restorative poses in as much as they allow time for the body/mind and breather to really integrate as we move into poses and then time to be there to really feel the pose and then time to feel the effects after we exit the pose
