Restorative

Shanti Yoga School - India - Restorative

Like yin, restorative classes emphasize relaxation over exertion. A restorative class is meant to replenish energy by encouraging deep relaxation.

The main difference between a yin and restorative class is in the yin you are trying to stretch fascia and in restorative you use props and pillows to allow the body a more complete relaxation.

Shanti Yoga teaches at least one restorative yoga class per teacher training to ensure our students not only realize its benefits but also receive exposure so they can teach it.
