10 Slow Restorative Yoga Videos

Leslie Perryman • March 24, 2015
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.Slow yoga is the most common style of yoga, it involves gentle classes with no flow between postures. Yoga poses are held for a longer period of time helping you to build and strengthen your muscles and increase flexibility. Slow yoga also involves simple breathing exercises to increase the flow of oxygen to your body and allow you to remain calm during your yoga practice. Slow yoga classes are sometimes referred to as Hatha yoga and these yoga flows are great for beginners and more experienced practitioners alike. If you find this style of yoga too slow and meditative for you and are looking for something a little more athletic, you might want to try Vinyasa Flow yoga.

This practice will focus on two basic methods of restorative inversions. Inversions are poses in which your legs are higher than the heart and promote circulation, muscle recovery, and relaxation. Judith will first set you up in Legs up the Wall pose in which you will need two-three blankets, a yoga strap or belt, and eye pillow. The second basic restorative inversion is Legs on Chair in which you will need a chair with no arms and two blankets. Judith will be on hand to guide you through setting these poses up, easing you into the pose, and bringing you out after a period of relaxation.
