Did you know yin yoga and restorative yoga are not the same things? From the outside, the practices look similar because they both include long holds, utilize props, are slow and introverted practice, and focus on opening the body over time instead of through dynamic movement.
If you are wanting a restful yoga practice to help you decompress and relax, do you know which one to choose?
As a yoga teacher of both styles, I get asked this question often. From the outside, restorative and yin look very similar, but when you learn about where they came from and the essence of the practice, you will quickly learn they are quite different.

I teach a monthly yin yoga class on the first Monday of every month from 5:30-6:30 pm CST.
I teach a quarterly restorative yoga class on the Monday closest to a season change from 5:30 - 6:30 pm CST.
