This 25 hour, 4 day, training program is a comprehensive course in the methodology and benefits of Restorative Yoga. This is an ideal training for practitioners who would like to explore the postures more deeply and for teachers who would like to expand their skills in this area.

Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga is a wonderful way to address and balance many issues, including physical, mental and emotional. It can be a valuable tool to de-stress from our often hectic lifestyle, to assist those working with injuries, conditions such as high blood pressure, adrenal and chronic fatigue and is particularly useful for women’s health and for pregnant women. Restorative yoga uses supported postures that facilitate the passive release of tension stored in the body, activates that parasympathetic nervous system, and allows for deep, nourishing rest. 

Course Overview

This course is suitable for both teachers and practitioners. The course is taught from an experiential platform so you will enjoy sessions in Restorative Yoga and practical workshops on the benefits of key poses. There will also be theoretical sessions on the teaching methodology and the anatomical aspects of Restorative Yoga. You will learn how to correctly use props, set up the postures and how to sequence classes or your own personal practice for maximum benefit. A key focus will be on how to structure a class and how to guide students through the practice with your voice and with hands on adjusting skills.

You will also have to opportunity for practical teaching experience if you would like to develop your teaching skills, or you can choose to participate in the trainee classes or to take the free time to relax by the pool or the beach.
