7 Restorative Poses to Stay Grounded During the Holidays


Try this restorative sequence to keep calm in the busy holiday season.

Practice this 60-minute restorative sequence as often as you can this busy holiday season. Or if time is limited, you can reap the rewards by indulging just once a week. Find a quiet, dark space, set up your props (if you don’t have traditional blocks and bolsters, use books and pillows), and settle into poses that will help you rest, digest, and ultimately recharge. Restorative yoga is a receptive practice, so you’ll feel open afterward, interacting with yourself and others in a more loving way.
