This practice is all about keeping it simple with a combination of gentle movements followed by some delicious restorative postures. Once you begin to hold postures, be sure your body is comfortable and warm. Resist the temptation to chase after a stretch and give yourself permission to let go. Remember less is more when it comes to restorative yoga. Release yourself into sweet surrender. Recommended props: 1 block, 1 bolster, 2 blankets

i just joined yogaworks last night. This was my first class. I loved how gentle it was. The tempo was perfect. This was the perfect way to start my yoga journey.

Perfect class to unwind and relax after an intense day at work. Liked that there was some gentle movement before restorative poses. Well balanced gentle class for anybody.

I look forward to Dani’s Live Restorative classes on Saturday, but when I can’t attend those, it’s great to have her On Demand video class. She is a superb teacher, as evidenced by the large attendance for all her classes. Hopefully Dani will make more On Demand videos!

I found this to be quite restorative after a day of heavy gardening!

Dani, your voice and tone are easy to follow and the sequence is incredibly calming and allows for different energy channels in the body to open along with energizing the lungs and heart with prana. Thank you! Namaste!

Great practice and what a lovely voice! After an hour and a half commute home this is just what my body and mind needed to unwind. Please add some more of these longer restorative practices, they are so important and needed.

Very easy, slow-moving, and thoughtful poses with Dani! This is a perfect restorative practice for coming out of a lower back surgery (almost a month for me). Her voice is wonderful, and holding the poses for longer periods of time are what is needed for restorative practice! More of these please!! :)

This yoga session is like getting a total body massage. I didn't want it to end ....just what I needed to get back to center and happy with my mind and body. Xoxo

Deeply relaxing. Deep opening. Just what I was looking for to balance my new, highly intensive body weight workout.

Thank you for making this wonderful restorative video! It's so nice to have a longer restorative practice available for deep opening. Dani's voice is very soothing and her instructions are clear. I really like that she stays with you until the end of savasanna, so you don't worry about falling asleep.

Dani is very precise in mapping the body so that as your mind's eye goes to the places she suggests, a stretch or a relaxation is deepened. So much yoga these days seems to be about a vigorous workout. It's so nice to have the option to slow down, look within, and deepen the practice. For people with fewer limitations, this practice seems doable without some of the props. Loved it!
