This healing, restorative practice is meant to provide a deep stretch, so we will be moving slower than in faster paced flow types of yoga such as vinyasa.
If you are dealing with stress or anxiety, a healing restorative yoga practice may be just the thing you need. Deep stretch yoga is great for helping to ground and balance you mentally and physically.
Yoga for a deep stretch also has many physical health benefits including, but not limited to:
- Boosting immune system health
- weight loss in abdominal region
- lowered stress due to decreased cortisol levels from yoga for a deep stretch
- deep stretch yoga increases flexibility
For this Deep Stretch Healing Yoga class, you will need a bolster or a substitute such as a firm pillow, and two yoga blocks or something similar in size and shape such as two similarly shaped books.
**If you do not have a prop, do not let it stop you from doing this Deep Stretch Healing Yoga practice.**
Get creative, and find something around the house that is similar in size and shape to the props we are using. I guarantee you have something that will work just fine!
