Banyen's Description: 

Written by instructor Gail Boorstein Grossman and published in partnership with Yoga Journal, Restorative Yoga for Life teaches you how to practice restorative yoga—a form of yoga that focuses on physical and mental relaxation through poses aided by props. It’s a gentle yet empowering style that helps you de-stress and re-energize. While restorative yoga is beneficial for your entire body, Gail also shows you how to treat more than twenty ailments, such as headaches, digestive issues, and anxiety, through specific yoga poses and sequences. Guided by step-by-step instructions and beautiful photographs, you will gently ease your way into inner calm and better health with powerful yoga sequences.

It is a receptive practice, not an active practice. Unlike the more active styles of yoga where poses “flow” into one another, in restorative yoga poses are held from five to as long as twenty minutes. During this time, you are held in “shapes” while being supported with blankets, blocks, or bolsters (pillows). The shapes emulate the forms of some more active poses found in Ashtanga, Vinyasa, or Iyengar such as a back bend, forward bend, twist, or inversion. When you are in the poses you are completely supported in a particular shape, which helps achieve the desired benefit—it could open up your lungs, release tension in your lower back, or any of the other benefits we discuss in this book, as well as help you feel comfortable enough to “let go.”

Whether you’re having trouble sleeping, suffering from backaches, or just want to unwind after a busy day, you will find balance throughout your body, soul, and mind with Restorative Yoga for Life.

It gives the body a real sense of the healing power of just being still, which is actually the heart of the practice of yoga and meditation. Practice, however, is the real first step.
