Do you want to address your stress? Are you sleep deprived? Anxious? Then my new eBook is for You.
In ‘Rest + Renew’ I’ve put together some simple moves using Restorative Yoga that you can do in the comfort of your own home. You don’t need any previous experience of yoga to practise and reap the benefits of Restorative Yoga.
What is Restorative Yoga?
This style of yoga quiets the nervous system in a way that a regular yoga practice doesn’t quite reach.
I sometimes joke that it looks like ‘adult naptime’ as it may appear to be a lot of lying around, but in fact there is a lot happening at a deeper level as this practice calms the body’s ‘fight flight’ response and activates the parasympathetic nervous system (the part of the autonomic nervous system that is in charge of our bodies’ ‘rest and digest’ activities.
While the body is supported by various props (items you can find easily at home such as pillows, cushions or blankets), there is no need to ‘hold’ a posture, so you are able to completely let go, giving the body the opportunity to rest properly.
Among many things, Restorative Yoga is known to:
- Tame tension
- Relieve stress
- Ease anxiety
- Help insomnia
- Ease digestive issues
