About the Event
Restorative yoga is a style of yoga that encourages physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. Appropriate for all levels, restorative yoga is practiced at a slow pace, focusing on long holds, stillness, and deep breathing.
- Relaxes your mind and body. Yoga is linked to reducing stress and anxiety, and lower levels of cortisol, the stress hormone.
- Soothes the nervous system. Restorative yoga helps shift the balance from your fight-or-flight response (sympathetic nervous system) to your relaxation response, or the parasympathetic nervous system.
- Enhances your mood. Yoga promotes relaxation and deep breathing, which, according to research, may reduce depressive symptoms.
- Reduces chronic pain. Research has shown that yoga may help reduce pain associated with headache or back pain, as well as osteoporosis.
- Improves sleep. Sources have shown that adding yoga to your daily routine may help boost the quality of your sleep.
- Improves well-being. In addition to lower levels of stress, researchers have also found that doing yoga regularly may result in less fatigue, more vigor, and improved well-being.
- Gentle on your body. Restorative yoga is generally safe and often recommended for people with acute or chronic injuries.
- Works as part of an overall treatment plan for chronic health conditions. People with a chronic illness may benefit from a regular practice of yoga. A 2018 study found that people with cancer who practiced yoga reported an improvement in their psychological and physical symptoms, as well as improved quality of life.
- Safe to perform during pregnancy. Restorative yoga is easy to modify and safe to practice during pregnancy. The American College of OBGYN ranks prenatal yoga as one of the safest ways to exercise during pregnancy.
