Relaxing pose used in Restorative Yoga to extend the chest. In Sanskrit, it’s called supta badda konasana. It is another of the many restorative chair yoga that are part of Flametree’s restorative yoga classes. Among other things notice the yoga block under each knee.

For example, blood pressure is a common issue that many want to address. Another is low back, or lower back pain. In addition, immune system issues are also common.  In daily life, there are plenty of other examples.

Why restorative yoga?

The key advantage of yoga is that it helps both or your nervous systems. The first nervous system revs you up. Most exercise does this, including yoga.

Your second nervous system is your parasympathetic nervous system. It triggers a relaxation response that calms and de-stresses you. This is the major advantage of yoga. Many other types of exercise do this very little.

In particular, restorative yoga poses generate deep relaxation which are positive for your heart rate. In addition, you will find that it leads to a deep breathing that also calms you.

So restorative yoga is especially good at working on both of your nervous systems. It is the best style of yoga for this.
