The use of props makes it easier for you to maintain balance while you are stimulating and relaxing your body. While some restorative yoga poses are beneficial to the entire body, others target specific parts of the body, such as the heart or the lungs.We use a variety of props like blankets, bolsters, straps, and blocks to completely support the body in a variety of poses. We hold many of the poses for 1-30 minutes. Some of the postures provide passive stretching and stimulate different areas of the body. Others are designed simply to allow pure, unqualified rest.
