Restorative Yoga for Beginners Gentle Poses for Relaxation and Healing by Julia Clarke

With chapters that describe restorative yoga and tell what one needs to know to begin, readers are prepared to work on the poses that follow.  Next is a chapter on “the basics” which includes nine poses.  This is followed by chapters on poses for stress relief, pain relief and other poses for healing.The  book then has a chapter on sequences and one on breathing and meditations.  So, as you can see, this book is pretty comprehensive, especially as each chapter includes multiple poses. The book ends with sections on resources and references.

In explaining what restorative yoga, a form of hatha yoga, is the author states:

Instead of moving through challenging standing poses, the therapeutic practice of restorative youga uses supported position to invoke deep relaxation to settle your mind and harmonize your physiology.

Sounds good to me!

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this book which includes clear directions and illustrations.  All opinions are my own.
