Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga props up the body with blocks, blankets, belts, straps or even chairs so that you can go deep into poses for extended periods of time – without risk of injury. This type of yoga is slow paced and ideal for helping to recover from injury, illness or stress. Restorative Yoga helps bring the body back to health, reduce stress and find a more blissful state – think of it as ‘active relaxation.’ When the body is supported by physical props, it’s easier to move toward balance.

Restorative Meditation

Life Force Project

Led by Sibyl Buck

Make yourself comfortable and be guided into deep relaxation and meditation. Specific language is used to help you move past the spinning movement of your mind, and into the deeper dimensions of your being, out past the temporal details of your life, which pull you out of the moment. Even if you find a lot of mental noise when you attempt meditation, combining your practice with restorative yoga will help you to arrive in the ever-present peace within yourself, deeper than the layer of mental movement that distracts you. Using props that can be found around the house, you'll create a comfortable position for your body, and release each body part individually before delving deeper. Breath techniques are used to help bring balance to the body and mind. Namaste.

Pose with Purpose: Utilize Props to Adapt Poses

Life Force Project

Samy Mattei designed this class for yogis with limited physical mobility - Utilize Props to Adapt Traditional Poses. An amazing way to experience the delights and benefits of yoga practice, is with the connection and assistance of a partner or assistant. The class is by no means a "passive" one; it consistently asks students to check in with their bodies and be aware of what works and what needs to change. This is the most unique of classes to create space to transcend perceived barriers, and realize we are all connected and couldn't do "this" without one another.

Partner Yoga Restorative

Kristen Boyle

This Indieflow Partner Yoga Restorative class was originally created for expecting mothers and their partners to foster a deep sense of trust and connection before baby arrives. This class, however, is a beautiful practice for anyone wishing to create that deeper connection with their partner.

It is recommended that you watch this video in segments. See how to get into and out of one posture, listen to the instructions, then PAUSE the video to do the pose. Spend as long in each posture as you wish. Poses are intended for each partner to enjoy the more restorative part* so be sure to switch before moving on to the next posture!

* For a Prenatal practice, please note that the expecting mother is generally the one who enjoys the restorative aspect while her partner acts as the base.

** For a Postnatal practice, partners can switch, please be aware that a mother who has recently given birth is still working to regain core strength and stability.

Kristen loves to engage with yogis and to help you grow. As you practice this class, and any of the IndieFlow yoga classes on YogaDownload, if anything comes up for you, you are invited to leave a comment or question, in the reviews section and she will respond!

Yin Yang Yoga for the Lower Back

Elise Fabricant

Is your lower back a sensitive or weak area for you? Does it stiffen up from too much sitting, or even excessive exercise? Do you spend a lot of time bending over or lifting? If so, this is the class for you. We will start and end this session with gentle, mellow Yin poses. Holding these therapeutic shapes on the floor will help loosen and release tight back muscles and connective tissue. Sandwiched in the middle of the Yin practice is a more active Yang flow which will wake up and strengthen the back as well as the front of the pelvis. After just 35 minutes, you will feel this tricky area of your body alive with new energy and fluidity!
