Restorative Yoga Training

Restorative Yoga Teacher Training CourseYACEP

Today, the need for restorative yoga couldn’t be greater. As a teacher and/or practitioner, integrating restorative postures into your yoga classes and personal practice feels more like a necessity than a luxury. Like all styles of yoga, there is a science and art behind teaching and practicing restorative postures. Studies show that restorative yoga decreases stress and improves a myriad of conditions including symptoms related to perimenopause, fatigue, high blood pressure, infertility and depression. The art to restorative yoga is propping the postures carefully, creating a peaceful environment, and allowing sufficient time and space to move slowly and deeply into blissful relaxation. As a teacher or practitioner, you will benefit from this restorative intensive, where you will learn dozens of restorative postures, the therapeutic benefits of each posture, the art of sequencing a full restorative practice, as well as several short-and-sweet sequences – 20 minutes or less – to boost energy and address specific areas in the body.
