The Kind Of Yoga People Google The Most
If you've ever been curious about restorative yoga—Do you really just lay there?—you're in good company: A recent Google Trends report shows the number of searches for "restorative yoga sequence" has risen 120%.
This could be because it's a more approachable form of yoga, says Jason Wachob, founder of wellness website MindBodyGreen.com. "Even though 20 million-plus people practice yoga in the US, there is often a perception that you need to be super-flexible or strong enough to do arm balances. But with restorative yoga, people don't feel like they're walking into something that they can't do," he says.
If you've never experienced it, restorative yoga aims to relax a person physically, mentally, and emotionally. Holding certain positions, like corpse pose, for minutes at a time on pillows and blankets helps a person better connect with their breath, says Wendi Buick, a certified yoga instructor based in Colorado. "A powerful yoga class is awesome. But to find the time to sit back and put your feet up, to ground yourself and find mental peace [during a restorative sequence] is amazing."
Not only that, adds personal trainer Holly Del Rosso, but someone who works out four to five times a week needs to relax and stretch their tight muscles. Skipping this step may lead to injury, she says. Adding a restorative yoga class to your weekly routine helps insure this doesn't occur.
Plus, there's another benefit: Restorative yoga can help women burn belly fat, according to research presented at the 73rd Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association last year. Overweight women who tried the practice for six months lost two and a half times more belly fat than women who just did basic stretching. Limiting yourself to this kind of yoga won't help you lose weight, says Del Rosso, as the best bet is to add it to your current routine.
Bottom line: Restorative yoga is worth the time.
