This training is open to all YA certified teachers for 30 hours of continuing education. It is ALSO open to any students and wellness/ healthcare/caregivers professionals who want to learn more about restorative practices: for non credit hours.
This two day training will give all 200 hour certified yoga instructors the opportunity to immerse themselves in the art of restorative yoga. The hours spent in training, plus the take home project due within 30 days of the training’s end, will give the instructor 30 CEUs through the Yoga Alliance; as well as the confidence and skill to teach restorative to their yoga communities!
We will cover 16 common restorative asanas, as well as some unique variations. Each pose will be experienced using a wide variation of props and assisting; as well as appropriate sequencing and timing for restorative classes. We will cover pranayama practices (breath work) to help connect students to softening and restfulness, as well as to the subtle body. This training will include learning meditations that are applicable to restorative classes, both seated and reclined; including a basic yoga nidra. This training will also include an Ayurvedic component, giving the instructor a whole new viewpoint to restorative from the perspective of the doshas, the seasons, and the time of day. We will learn mudras and mantras to guide a restorative class with and create a deeper energy; as well as and poetry and sacred, soothing music to create an even more restful and delightful atmosphere for our restorative setting.
