Restorative yoga is a gentle practice that helps the body and mind slow down. The poses in restorative yoga, which often include supportive props like blankets, are designed to regulate the parasympathetic nervous system. This brings the body into a deep state of relaxation, which can ultimately soothe your mind and recharge you.
You can practice restorative yoga just before bedtime to ease into sleep, or use it as a refreshing reset in the morning or during the day. If you’re new to restorative yoga, this beginner’s guide is for you.
