The Many Benefits of Restorative Yoga
Restorative yoga is a series of simple postures using props (like bolsters, chairs and blankets). The poses are easy, but still give you many benefits.
It does not matter how far you can or can’t go in terms of being flexible, or how weak or unused your muscles may be.
If you are the sort of person who knows you should do more exercise, but don’t know where to get started, then a beginner restorative class is a good option.
On the other hand, if you know or suspect that you are more stressed than you would like, and you already have done some yoga, then regular restorative classes will work well for you.
Aim to do at least a weekly restorative class, even while doing various other types of yoga during the week.

Improves sleep, energy, productivity, calmness & more
If you follow the instructions and demonstrations of the teacher, anyone can get into the poses, and get a lot of benefits from them.
Even better, you can do restorative yoga even when you are feeling exhausted from hot weather, or tired from running around being busy during the day.
As you steadily work your way through a series of restorative poses, you’ll slowly gather more energy, and you’ll feel yourself calming down.
Don’t want to commit to a weekly pass?
If you are unsure that a weekly pass will work for you, then why not try a ten class pass or a single casual class? This pass allow you to attend 10 classes at a time that suits you. Concession prices are also available.
Restorative yoga works because it targets glands and other features of your anatomy so as to create de-stressing.
One of the most immediate benefits of calming down is that you will sleep better that very night. In turn, that means the next day you’ll feel refreshed and productive.
A clear mind will give you the resolve and focus to get on with the many things you probably have on your list. You’ll also be much nicer to people around you, and consume less weight gaining food and drink.
At Flametree yoga, restorative yoga can be done at either beginner or non-beginner level, online or in-studio.
Restorative yoga class times for non-beginners
For Non-Beginners, there is a Restorative class on Wednesday at 7.00pm and Friday at 5.30pm.
There’s more below about the beginner restorative yoga below, or here.
In the pictures, we demonstrate some restorative poses with some of the many props at the Flametree Studio.
Restorative yoga can also be done very effectively from home. Many household items can be used as yoga props.
At the end of a series of restorative poses, you feel calmer, rejuvenated and relaxed.
Restorative yoga also steadily builds your ability to do all types of yoga poses, as they still build flexibility and strength.
Restorative poses are also regularly used in many of the sequences designed to help with particular issues, including anxiety, depression, relationships, backs, menstrual pain, menopause, and more.
If you wish, you could start with the Beginner (Easy Restorative Focus) class and then steadily try out other classes.
