Restorative yoga is an approach that creates a nurturing and supportive environment for the body and mind. Using props and longer holds, we encourage deep relaxation. There is more to restorative yoga than just propping the body and staying still. This manual looks at the science behind the practice and how we can use the body’s natural response mechanisms to cultivate a more therapeutic experience for the recipient. This manual also covers some of the subtler details such as creating a practice space and qualities of a good restorative yoga teacher.
