IT MIGHT JUST BE THE PERFECT ANTIDOTE.
If you’re feeling that the New Year seems to be off to a rocky start, you just might need to add some new coping methods to your arsenal, beyond wine and more wine. It may not be what the doctor ordered, but many health and wellness practitioners are embracing Restorative Yoga to help clients relax and destress.
Differing from traditional yoga, restorative yoga’s five to six poses utilize props to help you go deeper into the move, allowing complete relaxation and rest. A typical class includes light twists, seated forward folds and gentle backbends, held for five minutes or so.
