Restorative Yoga brings the therapeutic benefits of yoga to individuals who may not have the stamina or physical ability for a regular yoga class. It is tailored to the needs of each participant whether they are dealing with illness, injury, medical treatments, or stress related conditions.

Each class concludes with a quieting and centering experience, which provides more effective recuperation than regular sleep or other typical means of relaxation.
