Restorative Yoga & Yoga Nidra
This popular style of yoga is based on the belief that mental and physical health are interrelated, and should be conditioned together. All of the classes at Selah Yoga Studio attempt to coordinate breathing to physical movement, so you can improve focus thru concentration, and help you regain understanding of your mind through the body.

Benefits of Restorative yoga
The beauty of Restorative yoga is that there is no muscular contraction involved. We believe we have to “work” to increase flexibility, but often we achieve more opening in parts of the body that we perceive as tight by softening and relaxing than through an active asana practice. During a Restorative yoga sequence, you still stretch, but you relax fully in the stretch so that tension can slowly be released.
Because the body and mind relax, literally becoming softer, we also create space to get in touch again with our natural qualities of compassion and understanding of others and self.
