Coming up in June 2019:
This Restorative Yoga Teacher Training is a weekend-long program that draws upon subtle energy awareness and experience to bring each student into a layer of balance. Using asana, pranayama, meditation, visualization, ecology, and art the practitioner/student can construct individual recovery processes that speak directly to their needs. This training will encourage each student to guide and be guided in a restorative fashion. Throughout the weekend students will explore physical and energetic methods; using linguistics and presence to set the tone. Hands-on & hands-off adjustments, sequencing for affects, traditional & modern adaptations, lecture & discussion, and art & nature moments will be called into focus, giving the students a secure, but varied foundation to teach and/or deepen their personal practice.
This training is designed for new and experienced yoga instructors, as well as students who have a sincere interest in deepening their understanding behind the mechanics of restorative yoga. This training also lends itself to health care professionals (nurses/doctors), personal trainers, physical therapists, care-takers, body-workers, and/or counselors/coaches.
