We work very hard in our lives, and while we may sleep, we rarely take time to rest. Restorative yoga poses help us learn to relax and rest deeply and completely. During this relaxation, all the organ systems of the body are benefited, and a few of the measurable results are the reduction of blood pressure, serum triglycerides and blood sugar levels in the blood, the increase of the “good cholesterol” levels, as well as improvement in digestion, fertility, elimination, the reduction of muscle tension, insomnia and generalized fatigue.

Did you know?
Yoga Yoga was founded in Austin by husband and wife Mehtab Benton and Guru Karam, who began teaching out of the extra room in their house. Yoga Yoga opened its first studio doors in 1998 but as we like to say, we've been "locally Om'd" since 1997.
