Summary "Recovering from an injury, an illness, or just interested in a natural way to relax? Restorative yoga takes a step back from the "pretzel-twisting" stretches of traditional yoga, and focuses on simple poses in supported positions, encouraging deep relaxation so your mind can enter a peaceful, meditative state. Restorative Yoga for Beginners offers the guidance to begin your yoga practice and bring harmony to your quality of life -- one gentle stretch at a time. Begin a new pathway to healing, starting with an introduction to the spiritual origins and rejuvenating benefits of restorative yoga. Explore how mind-body relaxation can bring balance to the five layers of self (koshas): physical, energy, mind, intellect, and blissful consciousness where you become unburdened by body, emotions and thoughts. Find the right position to reduce lower back pain, relieve stress, breathe easier, and improve your energy -- all with illustrated instructions to get you into and out of each pose safely and comfortably."--From back cover.
