What does Stretch and Restore Yoga Entail?
Stretch and restore yoga is necessary for all types of people, whether they are active in yoga or are athletes or have suffered an injury of some kind. That’s because the purpose of stretch and restore yoga is meant to stretch the primary muscle groups around the hips, hamstrings and upper back. Due to the fact that so many people spend their days seated at desks, these areas are usually quite tight on most people and can lead to injury.
Stretch and Restore yoga classes usually entail a warm up on the floor to get the muscles ready to be stretched. Then a series of poses most from the seated position will be done and held for 1 to 2 minutes, along with deep breathing so those aforementioned core muscle groups fully relax and open. This type of yoga is an ideal intro class for beginning yoga students, both because it’s not as difficult and because they will probably feel the benefits immediately.
