With all we do in our lives, we rarely stop to rest.
Though some of us may get a good nights sleep,
fatigue seems to be our baseline.
Restorative yoga postures help us learn to relax and rest completely.
During this state of deep relaxation, all the organ systems of the body are benefited.
To truly relax means quantifiable improvement of immune function, digestion, fertility, elimination and the reduction of muscle tension and blood pressure.
