5 Restorative Poses for Deep Relaxation

March 28, 2014    BY Narween Otto

Restorative poses bring a quiet inner stillness that connects you to yourself and disconnects you from stress. These deeply relaxing poses calm and rebalance the nervous system, ground you, and serve as a gateway to meditation. They also give a passive stretch to the body. Narween shows you how to arrange props for maximum comfort and guides you to rest in five restorative poses: a gentle backbend over blankets, a reclining twist, reclining cobbler’s pose, legs-up-the-wall, and shavasana, or corpse pose.

Props: yoga mat, 3 blankets, and 2 yoga blocks.
