There may not be an easy button for our lives, but restorative yoga is a way to help us make it all feel a little more calm. Daily life is full of stressors and often that stress lingers in our body for hours, months, even years after an event. Developed by B.K.S. Iyengar, restorative yoga often utilizes many props including blankets, yoga blocks, chairs, bolsters, towels, and walls to support recovery and enhance relaxation. When a person over-exerts in a yoga pose they can cause injury or pain, but this style is all about giving your body, mind, and spirit time to repair in order to grow stronger.
