What is Restorative Yoga? Perfect for Beginners but Not Easy

Restorative YogaMy first yoga class was back in January 2012, and I was trying to impress my girlfriend by taking the class.  She was an experienced yogi, and all I knew was that it came from eastern Asia and it had recently become trendy in the United States.  I called the yoga studio where she went regularly, and I asked what would be the best class for a beginner.  Or, it sounded more like this "what's the easiest class you have?"

The lady working the desk at the studio laughed and told me I should sign up for a restorative class.  I signed myself and my girlfriend up for the class, and it was NOT easy. The only easy part was the use of props, which did make the experience easier.  There were large stiff pillows and blocks as well to assist with specific stretches.  A restorative class is more like a stretching class in comparison to a regular yoga class which can be as demanding as a workout in the gym.

So, when we went to the class for the first time, I still had no idea what I was doing; however, the tone in the class was so relaxed that no one seemed to care that I was rolling over and losing my balance.  The instructor pulled me aside and gave me a few easier stretches that really embarrassed me, but ended up feeling great afterwards.  My girlfriend laughed at my experience for months, and she still brings it up from time to time.  We are still doing restorative yoga and we recently got married.  Restorative yoga is great for beginners and those too out of shape or embarrassed to try the real deal.  But, that doesn't make it "Easy."
