Restorative Yoga, Yoga Nidra and Meditation - Athens Yoga Center

Maintaining restorative postures releases, hydrates and revitalizes fascia and other connective tissues in the body. It allows those areas of the body that tend to accumulate stress, to gradually soften the resistance and surrender to gravity. This process calms the nervous system relatively quickly, but when performed with regularity, it becomes "imprinted" as a new habit of releasing stress at will. Gradually, this practice can lead to the prevention of future accumulation of tension in the muscles, fascia and the organ system.
