HHOSKINS77 I think it has to do with the fact that Restorative yoga helps relieve the effects of chronic stress and move the spine in all directions to promote greater well-being by focusing in breathing and getting deeper in the poses.
In my personal experience after a practice of Restorative yoga , I feel rest, more flexible and my breathing is deeper. I feel good!
TDSLOVEY while training for a triathlon, I imagine your body needs recovering time and that is what Restorative Yoga is helping. People think that because is slow motion does not help, but you know, to go deeper in a pose, breathing in the right way and moving slowly from one pose to another is beneficial to the body, flexibility is achieved, relaxation and rest for those muscles you use in your training is also achieved. There is a reason you ended up in that class.
Flow yoga or Vinyasa as well as for Power Yoga have beginner levels, maybe in the place you go they don't teach at this level because it takes time to teach the poses in the right way, see below some of the different types of Yoga, their description and calories used per practice www.ivillage.com/yoga-hatha-vinyasa/4-b-36
Thanks SHIVASHIVA and SHRLZI for your professional advice, being both certified Yoga instructors is an asset for our team.
