    1. Judith Lasater is known as the Queen of Restorative Yoga - and she doesn't disappoint! For anyone that has an interest, passion, or simple curiosity about Restorative Yoga, this book is your bible. Like most (younger) folks, I didn't pay much attention to Restorative Yoga that was, until I came across this book & tested out a few of the poses for myself. First, Lasater's writing style is very informative without being complicated. You feel supported & encouraged by her simply intelligen [...]

    2. I tend to work until I am drop-dead exhausted. I tend to worry until I can't sleep. This book has taught me how to take care of myself and relax. Excellent techniques for my asthma, neck pain, and sinus troubles.

    3. A great book to get a basic understanding of the role restorative yoga can play in a person's life. A great book for anyone interested in lowering stress and improving health.

    4. Must have resource for restorative yoga teachers and yoga teachers. Touches on pre and post menopausal, chair yoga, menstruation yoga, and pregnancy yoga. Very detailed, great resource, inspiring quotations in the margins. Will keep in my library.

    5. Excellent resource for learning more about Restorative Yoga and how to develop a Restorative practice of your own.

    6. The manual for restorative yoga by Judith Lasater- widely recognized as the mother of the movement. She gives great step-by-step instructions for getting in and out of the poses as well as troubleshooting for misalignment or discomfort. She also breaks down how props can be used to best effect and suggests sequences. I know I will refer to this book constantly!

    7. "Relax and Renew: Restful Yoga for Stressful Times"LASATER, Judith HansonKindle EditionLivros sobre Yoga existem aos montes. Poucos, entretanto, dedicam-se à prática com ênfase no Yoga Restaurativo consolidado a partir das mesmas técnicas propostas por B. K. S. Iyengar. A obra é inteiramente prática e, ao final de cada capítulo, encontramos um resumo das posturas de cada série.Segundo a autora, o momento em que mais precisamos praticar é justamente aquele em que não temos tempo ou disp [...]

    8. Awesome. I recently discovered restorative yoga where you completely relax and access you parasympathetic nervous system. You use props like bolsters and blankets to lean against and let go completely. I am taking a class but read this book to get the instructions for doing it on my own at home. If you want to learn how to relax and unwind from working too much, jet lag, or just life, this is a must read. My body is blissed out doing this kind of yoga. Our society needs more relaxation and this [...]

    9. Judith Lasater is the authority on restorative yoga. Although I usually enjoy a vigorous vinyasa based practice, I sure do love restorative as well and this book is the one I turn to when I need inspiration. Lasater describes how to get into the poses as well as the benefits so that you can tailor your restful practice to what you are feeling that day. A great book that always helps me feel a million times better than I began.

    10. A great book on Restorative Yoga. The book begins with guidelines and ideas for begining a yoga practice, and answered many questions I have from practicing yoga. The rest of the book is different restorative practices with different themes in mind. Some of the themes include practice to use after travel, during menstruation, if time is limited, or if you are in a hotel. It's incredibly useful. The pictures and demos are clear and easy to follow.

    11. All kinds of yoga that is focused on relaxing and opening up tight spots or releasing tension. The only real drawback is that you need several props in order to do it. I will be getting a copy and some more props in the near future. The breathing section really helped with those issues I was having.

    12. Where I live, it's hard to find yoga classes that are purely restorative, so I practice at home. This book contains essential instructions on how to do the poses and ideas for sequencing. There are also explanations for what each pose is trying to accomplish from both Eastern and Western perspectives. Judith Lasater is the master on this subject. A must-have reference book for every yogi.

    13. Easy to read with helpful information about various yoga poses for various issues. Don't see myself setting up all the props for many (if any) of the poses on a regular basis. The best part was the easily explained anatomy and physiology behind the whys and why nots of the poses.

    14. The foundational book on restorative yoga. If you teach restorative, or want to explore this style of practice, this book is the best place to start. It is thoughtful, clearly written, and practical. Highly recommended.

    15. Would have liked to see more restorative poses -- some were repeated several times. I was hoping the book would be more creative and perhaps give suggestions on how to make many of the most common, widely practiced poses restorative (e.g Warrior II lying down, and so on).

    16. Great resource for restorative yoga. Recommended for anyone with an interest in the benefits of a restorative practice.

    17. As a yoga teacher, I really enjoyed this book. It is helpful to anyone who is looking for a safe restorative home practice and it is a book I refer to.

    18. Had back problems this past summer and a friend sent me this book and was very helpful. I am buying this book.
