In restorative yoga, the body is completely supported with props for deep rest and relaxation. Learn to teach this practice of active relaxation
Restorative Yoga teacher trainings and workshops are suitable for teachers, enthusiastic practitioners, and health care professionals. Teacher trainings require 12-14 hours. CEUs will be awarded for registered Yoga Alliance teachers.
In restorative training, we will cover the following topics:
- The relaxation response.
- Physical, mental, and energetic aspects of Restorative Yoga.
- Postures and use of props, alignment environment, and sequencing.
- Teaching skills; “reading” the body, intuition, verbal cues, and adjustments.
- Through direct experience, practice teaching, and feedback, a trainee will leave with the ability to confidently teach a primary series of restorative poses to their students as well as incorporate them into their own practice.
Yoga teachers registered with Yoga Alliance receive 15 CEUs.
