A restorative yin yoga sequence most often involves only five or six poses, supported by props that allow you to completely relax. It offers a welcome respite among the turbulence of life and helps prepare the body and mind to sense deepened awareness. Gentle movement and stillness with the aid of props, centering your breath and body, aligning the physical and mental allows you to slow down and explore in gentle stillness your body and mind.

The comfortable pace of restorative yin yoga creates a deeper understanding of your own body. Your awareness is directed within, your practice becomes a sanctuary for the mind and spirit allowing you take a deeper look at who you are, what you want, and how you can serve and flourish in this world. You become increasingly aware of your actions and how they influence your level of comfort or discomfort. You see the direct cause and effect relationship between your poses, breathing, and overall level of well-being. You then begin to make more deliberate and attentive choices, both on and off the mat. You receive the greatest benefits from your practice not through forcing yourself into a pose, but by releasing and surrendering to it. This mentality helps to cultivate acceptance of your body and its inherent limitations.
