Both styles are 'yin like' in comparison to the more 'yang like' yoga where the practitioner strengthens, flows and heats up the body. In Restorative Yin the practitioner lengthens, slows and cools down the body. The main difference is that in a Restorative Yoga class the practitioner is asked to be 100% comfortable.
