about the training

Slow down, disconnect from the turbulence of modern life, cultivate subtle awareness, and reconnect. Nourish your students through the practice of restorative yoga.

In this teacher training, immerse yourself in the theory and practice of restorative yoga, a practice of receiving support and guiding students into tranquility. With the aid of props, the practitioner is placed in poses that soothe the nervous system, relax the mind, and calm the spirit. Through demonstration, lecture, discussion, and practice-teaching, participants will:

  • Practice several luxurious restorative yoga postures and personally experience healing effects;
  • Explore pose set-ups;
  • Practice teaching and receive constructive feedback;
  • Create set-ups and adjustments for different body types and physical conditions;
  • Examine the science and anatomy behind stress and its detrimental effects on health;
  • Understand the importance of rest for mental health, emotions, and the health of both the physical and energetic bodies;
  • Learn restorative sequencing and how to integrate restorative yoga into public classes as well as with private clients;
  • Discuss environmental factors (sound, scent, light, etc) that can enhance relaxation and renewal.

This training is open to certified yoga instructors and enthusiastic restorative students who have had a dedicated yoga practice.
