Restorative yoga focuses on passive stretching and stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system. Poses in restorative yoga are held for longer periods of time compared to traditional yoga, usually between 3-7 minutes, and props are used to facilitate relaxation and reduce strain on the body.

The benefits of restorative yoga include relieving chronic pain, aiding in muscle recovery, boosting the immune system, balancing the nervous system, lowering blood pressure, and promoting calm and relaxation.
