Through practicing relaxing, restorative yoga, we have the ability to release tension and inflammation in the body. The practice of gentle yoga not only helps the physical body, it also moves the chi and provides an opportunity to calm the mind, reducing inflammatory thoughts. What the poses look like are not important, the most important aspect is how you feel when your breathing into the spaces of tension and tightness. Recognize that just by gentle movements and breathing we can begin to heal the body. Be mindful of where you are each and every day. Use props, pillows, and blocks to help support you during your time of healing. Do what you can and take your time.
