Keep Calm and Yoga On with Restorative Yoga

I recently attended a restorative yoga workshop and it was the BEST THING EVER!!  This class is highly recommend for anyone who likes to be relaxed, uplifted and calm.  I wish one was held every Friday night instead of one Friday a month.  There were some yoga must-haves at this class that I want to share with you.  (This post contains affiliate links.)

therapy balls

Let me just say two things about this must-have:  ouch and ahhhhh.  Okay…those have complete opposite meanings, but it totally works here.  We used them between a yoga block and our neck while laying on a mat.  I moved my head in a yes gesture and a no gesture and it massaged the knots out of my neck.  There is the ouch.  At the conclusion of the mini-massage is when the there was the ahhhhh .

yoga bolster

yoga bolster is a large, cylindrical pillow used in different poses.  In one pose we did a shoulder back bend over the bolster.  We also hung our knees over it during a relaxation pose.  I will be use it when I do the neck massage with the therapy balls so that I can relax my legs.  I have hip dysplasia and sometimes it is painful to lay my left leg flat on the floor.  Being able to hang my legs over the bolster is a much more comfortable, relaxing pose for me.

Need I say more about this wonderful relaxation necessity.  Put this over your eyes during any meditation, relaxation pose, or when you just want to feel calm and totally relaxed.  We used them for all the restorative poses when we were on our backs.  Sooooooooo good!!!
