Restorative Yoga – The Art of Rest

Share with your friends

RE-STOR-A-TIVE “having the ability to restore health, strength, or a feeling of well being”

You may have heard about restorative yoga and wondered what exactly it is.  During restorative yoga, props are used to support the entire body in a position of comfort.  Because we are comfortable, it becomes effortless to rest in a position designed to release tight muscles.  As we deeply relax, the body has an opportunity to replenish stores of energy and recover a sense of calmness.

Restorative yoga can be a complement to our more active physical practices of yoga and sports.  And, by preparing the body for stillness, restorative yoga is also a complement to our contemplative practices of mindfulness and meditation.

Restorative yoga is individualized making it appropriate for all ages and fitness levels.   We hope you will join us at First Street Yoga for Restorative Yoga on the first Sunday of the month.  Our next class is Sunday, October 6 from 4 – 5:30pm. To register, email firststreetyoga@gmail.com or call 319-895-8060.  The cost is one class card punch or $15 for drop-in.
