St. Petersburg Yoga has long been known for its Restorative classes, which have helped thousands of students over the last 25 years rehabilitate from injuries, gain space and range of motion, and renew the body to a more liberated and lighter state.
Our experienced Yoga instructors gear these classes towards addressing the foundational causes of physical pain and tightness. The classes are accessible to any body, as the instructor will help you customize each posture for your own uniquely appropriate depth. Many times students will not get off the floor in these classes, as they are heavily oriented towards stretching rather than strengthening (although they do help strengthen more inward supportive muscles, like those along the spine).
In addition to the physical benefits you’ll gain in our restorative classes, many students use these classes for their mental benefits. These slower paced classes are ideal for balancing out a busy fast-paced lifestyle which so many of us identify with, and can be very balancing for many of the mind challenges we face including chronic stress and anxiety.
We offer over 20 Restorative group classes each week. If you are interested in working one-on-one with an instructor on your challenges, we also offer Private Yoga Sessions.
We encourage you to use these classes to help you restore yourself to a more balanced body and mind. If you have any questions or concerns about our Restorative classes, please feel welcome to call our studio 727-894-9642 or drop by the studio for personal advice.
We’re excited to announce the launch of our new virtual class platform, where you can access Restorative classes online 24/7. Rent individual videos or subscribe for all-access.
