Intro to Restorative: It does exactly what it says on the tin: restores. A great compliment to your more vigorous and active yang practices, and more gentle than Yin Yoga, restorative class is a profoundly soothing experience that restores your body and mind to its equilibrium through a process of deeply relaxing postures. Like having a hot bath.
What to expect: Calm, meditative music, candles, the lights dimmed, and your teacher guiding you through five or six reclining positons with few words and maybe a story. You will lie on bolsters, sink into the mat and be carried in a semi-conscious and deeply relaxing state. Expect to appreciate silence and be ready for bed.
