This is one of our most popular trainings! Students love the powerful, rejuvinating, & healing effects of Restorative Yoga.
Join our Yoga Therapy students for a healing, restorative teacher training experience.
yoga is a gentle inward form of yoga that invites participants to move
towards greater balance, control and participation in their life. The
participant's body is placed in yoga postures that are supported with
props. The mind is invited to slow down with the use of pranayama,
visualization and mantra allowing the individual to turn inside. A
restorative practice is a complement to any yoga practice or other form
of exercise and perfect for almost any practitioner looking to
experience a deeper state of relaxation and healing than Savasana or
sleep. It is also a perfect practice for those recovering from injury or
illness or anyone who experiences stress on a daily basis.
20-hour training is for teachers, teacher trainees and students
interested in delving deeper into restorative yoga. Participants will
learn how to teach restorative yoga classes and how to incorporate
restorative yoga into asana group classes and privates. Students will
learn how to develop a restorative home practice and how to apply it
therapeutically for stress related illnesses such as anxiety, asthma,
high blood pressure, etc.
The training will cover:
- the science behind restorative yoga
- benefits and contraindications of key restorative poses
- how to work with a variety of props to set up key restorative poses for classes, privates, and home practice
- hands-on adjustments
- class sequencing
- how to design a restorative practice
training will focus on developing practical skills. Trainees will work
with fellow students to develop an “eye” to see physical misalignments
and know how to adjust them. Trainees will learn hands on adjustments
and practice teach restorative poses.
Because of the extensive use
of props, class size is limited. Please register for this training as
