Modern restorative Yoga is a variation that was born from the master BKS Iyengar, recognized worldwide as one of the most influential yoga teachers. Bks Iyengar taught his students to use props to perfect their poses. His teachings were called Yoga Iyengar. Although he never gave his own name to this way of teaching.

The importance of restorative Yoga lies in its contribution to reducing stress and anxiety management.

This type of practice mitigates the effects of stress and anxiety in those who practice it. By activating the nervous system for sympathetic, it is induced in a calm mental state in which the human being can leave this state of constant struggle in which many of us live in our daily lives.

Restorative Yoga is a therapeutic proposal based on the postures of hatha yoga, where supports such as cushions, blankets, belts, bricks, kuruntas ropes, therapeutic chairs and many other materials are used to help approach the practice in a soft, relaxed and respecting the conscious alignment of our body. It also allows access to observe the posture from stillness and calm. Restorative practice allows our body to explore each posture in a progressive way and its benefits gradually permeate us in a progressive way.
