Restorative Yoga 101: What Is Restorative Yoga?

Looking for some deep relaxation at the end of a hectic workday? Having trouble quieting your mind? Or do you simply want to chill out? Restorative yoga may be the answer.

Restorative yoga is typically practiced with props, and involves only a handful of restorative poses you'll hold for extended periods of time — but you'll really connect your mind with your body. Expect more poses that open the chest area for breath work and more lying down than in your typical practice.

There's no better practice late at night than restorative yoga. (It's also great for people who have trouble falling asleep.)
