Restorative Alignment helps to develop the correct tension in the body, providing a relaxed, strong and healthy posture and nervous system

Creating a foundation for stability in all joints

What is Restorative Alignment?

Restorative Alignment is a technique that originates in restorative yoga and provides the practitioner with the knowledge to relax the body through gravity and natural breathing, based on the realization of body postures focused on the mobilization of the spine and joints, which restore from the inside, in a conscious and dynamic way, the energetic, emotional and physical body.

In this tradition, postures are held somewhat longer, creating space to observe the sensations of the body quietly and objectively. It also involves the use of supportive tools, such as the BackMitra®, helping to relax the superficial muscles of the back and strengthening the deeper layers, preparing them for dynamic sequences that will give them greater mobility and strength, and as a result improving body posture.

Using tools to restore your health

By using tools to support the body during practice, you can create internal space and release incorrect tension. When we are supported we feel safe, when we feel safe we can move freely, and when we can move freely health can be restored.

Aligns & strengthens your back

Learning to relax the body by aligning the spine and the different curves in the back will provide you with a strong and healthy posture and nervous system. Improving not only the practice itself, but also your daily life.

Increases mobility, flexibility & stability

Creating the correct flexibility and tension in the body forms the basis for a healthy stability of all our joints, which can not only be felt during yoga practice, but throughout all layers of our being.
