Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga is a deeply nurturing practice in which your body is supported by blankets, bolsters, pillows, and other supports. Taking a few minutes - up to 20 - in a pose like this can help you deeply relax and recharge. Practiced regularly, you can reduce overall stress in your life and live more fully, being present, calm and focused. Try to set yourself up like this picture. Make sure you're comfy, and let go.  Make sure the roll under your upper back is beneath the shoulder blades, not the ribcage. You should feel an opening to the upper chest area.
