"After recovering from a kidney donation surgery, I decided to add restorative yoga to my healing process. A side effect of the surgery is fatigue and a lack of energy. The restorative yoga sessions have helped me enormously to regain flexibility and energy. My favorite benefit has been the bliss I feel after I complete a session. Petra is a wonderful leader and teacher and I would highly recommend restorative and yin yoga with her. "

Restorative Yoga Classes

What is Restorative Yoga?

Restorative Yoga is a gentle therapeutic style of yoga that uses props such as bolsters, pillows, blocks or blankets to support your body so you can hold poses for a longer period of time, allowing your body to open through passive stretching.

During this practice, the body is placed in gentle, fully supported poses. The use of props provides a completely supportive environment for total relaxation. This practice promotes deep release in connective tissue, nourishes the natural range of motion of the joints, and calms the nervous system.
