Restorative Yoga stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which slows the heart rate, regulates the blood pressure and relaxes the body. The intention is to relax as far as possible into the postures using as little physical effort as possible. The mind focuses on the breath in order to cultivate mindfulness and release tension from the body.
