What Is Restorative Yoga?

Restorative Yoga is a restful practice that holds yoga poses (asanas) for a longer duration using props like yoga blocks, blankets, and bolsters. It is a practice of deep relaxation that emphasizes the meditative aspect of yoga—the union of body and mind.


Traditional Yoga is an ancient practice that can be traced back to 5000 years ago in India before being spread to other parts of the world, including the West, in the late 1890s. It gained real popularity in the United States and other Western countries during the 1970s.


Yoga combines physical postures (some are very advanced poses), concentration, meditation, and deep breathing to achieve calmness, strength, flexibility, and stress relief. Experienced yoga practitioners can perform a wide variety of intricate poses that seem almost impossible to hold. They can connect their mind, body, and spirit to build mental and physical strength.


There are six branches of Yoga, and each type works to achieve a different goal and has a different focus. In general, Yoga attempts to keep the body’s chakras balanced and aligned. When they are not, or the energy in a chakra becomes blocked, the individual may experience physical, mental, or emotional stress and anxiety.

The physical poses in Yoga are Asanas. Those who practice Yoga use a different asana to free energy in their chakras and work to regain balance.
