Restorative yoga is a practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. If you take a restorative class, you may hardly move at all, doing just a few postures in the course of an hour. It is a completely different experience than most contemporary yoga. During the long holds of restorative yoga, however, your muscles are allowed to relax deeply. It’s a unique feeling because props, rather than your muscles, are used to support your body. Restorative classes are very mellow, making them a good complement to more active practices and an excellent antidote to stress.
Gentle Yoga is a non-strenuous form of yoga for those who cannot or who do not wish for the demands of a physically straining class. Class includes standing postures and floorwork, gentle stretching and breathwork.
By stretching the connective tissue, Yin Yoga can condition you to sit longer, increase flexibility — and feel more comfortable. With poses or asanas that are held for longer periods of time. Yin poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues (the tendons, fascia, and ligaments) with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. Yin practice isn’t muscularly strenuous, it seldom leads to sore muscles. Yin aims at cultivating awareness of one’s inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality. Yin Yoga is not intended as a complete practice in itself, but rather as a complement to more active forms of yoga and exercise.
Yoga For Anxiety
By reducing perceived stress and anxiety, yoga appears to modulate stress response systems. This, in turn, decreases physiological arousal — for example, reducing the heart rate, lowering blood pressure, and easing respiration. Excessive anxiety can be alleviated through a slow, gentle yoga practice focusing on postures that calm the heart and the mind, balance the emotions, and release body tension. Pranayama (yogic breathing) and meditation will also be utilized to calm the mind and body, and to reduce stress and negative thinking.
