Restorative Yoga is a practice of being rather than doing. Poses are held for anywhere from 5 to 25 minutes (or more!) to allow the body to deeply rest and the mind to move towards stillness. We are using props to support poses in order to allow the body to fully be held and relax, which can release deeply held layers of tension. Restorative Yoga also helps to balance the nervous and endocrine systems and increase blood flow to all of the organs and tissues of the body. It is a perfect practice for recovering from injuries and creating balance within a busy, active life. Restorative Yoga is a meditative practice that provides healing on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level.


This training will give you the tools to confidently practice and teach Restorative Yoga. It is appropriate for yoga teachers and healers who want to be able to guide others through a practice and also for those that want to deepen their own practice (You do not need to be a 200 hour certified yoga teacher).
Space is limited to 20 people, be sure to reserve your space as soon as possible.
