Restorative Yoga focuses on relaxing the body in restful postures. Note that "rest" is different than sleep or watching TV. Rest provides the body an opportunity to renew and heal, de-stressing the mind and body. Restorative yoga helps to trigger the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for bringing the body's response system back into equilibrium. Stimulating the PNS also helps to lower heart rate and blood pressure, assists in the promotion of a healthy immune system, and returns the endocrine system to a balanced condition.
