When the body is under stress, non-essential functions such as digestion, cell reproduction, intestine, and cell growth are blocked. Restorative Yoga, by rebalancing the nervous system, helps digestion to perform its basic functions and the intestine to absorb nutrients and generate waste material
Improves memory, concentration, and mental clarity
There are countless scientific studies that show how the balance of the nervous system and a witty and tamed mind leads to stages of deep concentration that cannot occur in stages of agitation and anxiety.
Regulates blood pressure
Stress states cause blood pressure to rise and interfere with its balance; states of relaxation slow down the heartbeat and regulate blood pressure to healthy levels.
Supports women during pregnancy, menopause, and menstruation
Restorative Yoga, with all its modifications and variations, is an excellent practice to rebalance the entire female hormonal system. This is especially true in so-called altered stages, such as moments of hormonal change like adolescence, pregnancy, and menopause.
Helps with managing endometriosis
Restorative Yoga helps in pain management and hormonal balance. It helps women to regain physical and mental peace, activates hormonal rebalancing, and reduces the perception of pain. For years now I have been part of a research group that works closely with women who suffer from endometriosis and with women from all over Lombardy who decided to combine medical treatment with a path of Restorative Yoga and therapeutic Yoga to alleviate the situation.
Supports the body during periods of grief
Restorative Yoga helps after major trauma, such as the loss of a loved one or after an accident or illness.
Supports in case of trauma
Practicing Restorative Yoga helps in case of physical trauma, but also of psychological trauma. When practiced regularly, it induces a process of self-healing and awareness of our reactions to the difficulties of life.
