What is Restorative Yoga?

Some Restorative Yoga Postures

The art of deep relaxation, also known as Restorative Yoga, is a very ancient form of yoga that was called Vishranta yoga.


Restorative yoga was also taught by B.K.S Iyengar. It emphasizes performing postures and stretches, using the force of gravity to relax and promote body alignment. The postures are often performed with the help of yoga supports.


By focusing on the deep relaxation of the body, it restores its vital functions and regains energy.


The practice of Restorative Yoga is characterized by:

  •  a series of soft and comfortable postures while sitting or lying down, in a slow rhythm,
  • immobility of the body when performing the postures,
  • the use of accessories (blankets, duffel bags (bolster), bricks, etc.) which allow postures to be held for a relatively long time,
  • deep, conscious breathing.

This form of yoga is accessible to anyone who wants to improve their health. It is particularly effective for people suffering from chronic fatigue, depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, lack of libido, and all the psychosomatic pain that this causes.


It is well suited for people over 60 years old or people who have practiced little physical exercise until now.
