Most of the diseases facing Western society are stress related, it is the number one health concern in modern life. Ease is the opposite of disease, it is the ability to relax and to live well. Finding ease in our bodies and minds is not easy because we have not been taught the importance or techniques of relaxation. In our busy lives this skill is a key to our wellbeing. Restorative Yoga is needed now more than ever. The ability to help students and clients learn to relax is vital.
This training covers the science and practice of Restorative yoga, so you will be able to deepen your own practice then share it with others. You will learn the physiology of relaxation, related current research and how to integrate this into your life. The yoga poses focus on healing through rest and the profound experience of being in contrast to doing. Most importantly, you will learn self-care and tools to lead a balanced life.
Techniques for body and mind to rest are introduced alongside proper alignment for each pose we learn. You will gain the skills to offer your students ways to shift from stress to ease, and a clear understanding of the nervous system. You will leave knowing how to guide people towards an experience of deep rest in a Restorative pose and the principles of Restorative yoga.
Our focus on the last day will be on the practicalities of teaching Restorative yoga in both group and private settings.
