Our lives can be incredibly demanding, especially in this 'connected' age where technology and multi-tasking consume every moment of our lives.
How often do you just turn off your phone, TV, iPad, iPod, computer or radio and just sit in silence pampering yourself? Never, unless of course you practice restorative yoga.
The benefits are many:
Improved concentration and awareness.
Better night’s sleep
Helps lower blood pressure
Helps reduce cortisol - which affects the immune system and adrenal glands (too much cortisol causes the body to store fat.
Gateway to meditation
Just to name a few. Do you need more than that? I was hooked at improved sleep! Though I don't mind the improved concentration and awareness.
Maybe you are wondering where to start. There are tons of really fabulous restorative practices that you can do at home. All you need is a blanket and some pillows and you could be on your way to several delightful moments of pure bliss.
Imagine yourself in swaddled in comfort and quiet like Paul, pictured here in reclined bound angle pose.
