Slip into a quiet practice. Restorative yoga is a passive practice utilizing breathing exercises, long held posture, and props to deeply rest tissues of the body, and calm the mind.Don't be intimidated by the idea of taking up yoga. Yoga for beginners classes are designed specifically to ease you in gradually into a practice. Yoga poses in beginners classes are easy enough not to put off first timers but just hard enough to stretch your muscles and give you a real workout. What's more there is such a range and variety of yoga styles and instructors for beginners to try that you will certainly find the right yoga practice for you.
