Restorative yoga helps you become more aware and conscious. It also provides the foundation for a secure financial future and dream life.
What is restorative yoga?
It is a calming practice that helps slow down your mind and body through passive stretching and relaxation techniques. During the hour, you will hold positions for long periods, generally three to five minutes. To make the practice easier, you can use props, such as folded blankets, yoga blocks, and bolsters, while you hold different positions. Start with 10 or 20 minutes and then increase it as you continue your practice.
Often referred to as restorative yin yoga, it is very different from other styles of yoga.
It allows you to become conscious and increase your abundance, prosperity, wealth, and peace of mind.
While there are many types of yoga today, we are diving into a Restorative Yoga practice. This is one of the most powerful forms of yoga in helping you integrate your body and mind.
It can be difficult when you start because of the time you are holding poses. However, this practice provides insight into creating a richer inner and less stress in your life, along with more peace and desired results.
In addition to practicing yoga each morning, I also attend three to four restorative yoga classes weekly. Consider taking a class, at least in the beginning.

Benefits of Restorative Yoga
Yoga has many benefits and is helpful for various ailments and recoveries.
Some benefits include the following:
- Lower blood pressure and heart rate

A 2014 study found that yoga is more effective at inducing a relaxed state than passive stretching.

Yoga can provide the solution, whether you want a competitive edge like Wall Street employees or more peace with your money and life. By incorporating yoga into their daily routine, associates could

Child’s Pose (Balasana)
This common yoga pose helps to relax the body and mind. Child’s Pose stretches the hips, thighs, and ankles while calming the mind and relieving stress.
Begin by kneeling on your mat with your knees slightly wider than hip-width apart. Touch your big toes together and sit on your heels, then separate your knees as wide as is comfortable. Then exhale as you lower your torso down between your thighs.
It’s up to you to keep your arms stretched out in front of you, by your sides, shoulder-width apart, or tucked under your body. Stay here for a few breaths and relax in the Pose. You should feel a gentle stretch in the hips, thighs, and ankles.
To come out of Child’s Pose, press firmly into your hands as you inhale and lift your torso back up. Then, bring your knees together and sit back on your heels. Finally, take a moment to pause before moving into the next Pose in your sequence.
Pigeon Pose (Eka Pada Rajakapotasana)
This Pose can be both deeply relaxing and stimulating. It stretches the hips, groin, psoas muscles (These are a group of muscles located in the lower back and hip area.), and chest while strengthening the legs.
Start on your hands and knees with your palms flat on the ground or in a downward-facing dog pose. Then, slide one foot forward to bring your knee towards your chest while the other leg extends back. Allow your torso to fold forward gently and let gravity work as you sink into the Pose.
As you relax into Pigeon Pose, breathe steadily, allowing each breath to help you release and relax your body. Stay here for at least eight breaths or up to several minutes. To exit the Pose, inhale and lift your torso before switching sides.
Pigeon Pose is a great posture to help release tension in your hips and psoas muscles while calming your mind. It can help relieve stress, fatigue, and anxiety, leaving you feeling physically relaxed and emotionally balanced. Always listen to your body and work within your comfort level.
Corpse Pose (Savasana)
This is a common yoga posture designed to relax the body and mind. It is usually done at the end of a yoga practice, as it helps to settle the energy generated during your practice.
How to do a Corpse Pose:
- Lie on your back. Let your feet naturally fall away from each other, and rest your arms by your sides.
- Allow your entire body to sink into the floor and become heavy, allowing any tension or stress to melt away.
- Close your eyes and focus on your breath, letting it flow freely as you relax each part of your body one by one.
The Corpse Pose is often seen as the ultimate relaxation posture, as it helps you rest deeply and connect with yourself on a deeper level. Research has also indicated that this pose can help reduce stress, improve balance, and even improve your immune system. It is a wonderful way to take time out of your day and be in the present moment. So, if you are feeling overwhelmed or overworked, spend some time in Corpse Pose and see the results.
Moreover, if you have difficulty getting into corpse pose due to physical pain or tightness, you can do a gentle variation by propping your legs up on a bolster or block. This helps keep your spine long and will allow you to relax more deeply. Corpse pose is highly beneficial for the body and the mind, so practice it regularly as part of your yoga routine!
