The restorative yoga Poornam teaches is a blend of the pawanmuktasana three group series (joint movements, abdominal and pelvic postures) and restorative postures which are held for a longer period of time, breathing practices, deep relaxation and meditation techniques.

It could easily be called “mindful yoga “due to the expanded awareness of self and body that comes through the practice. It’s about slowing down and opening the body through passive stretching and conscious breathing. Slower movements, integrated breathing and longer held poses give the body-mind the time it needs to assimilate. The overall calming effect on the parasympathetic nervous system comforts your mind and body down to the cellular level.

The comfortable pace of restorative yoga opens the doorway to a deeper understanding or your body mind constitution. Deeper levels of strength can be integrated and owned and a more profound sense of self-love and acceptance can emerge. This approach works directly with the energy body clearing the meridian pathways, points of stiffness and liberating vitality. Through small movement and the directing of breath and awareness we can connect directly with our life force, prepare the body for more complex postures and focus the mind on coordinating breath and movement. The Pawanmuktasana are known for developing body, breath and mind coordination.
