RESTORATIVE YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
7 – 9 December 2018, 11 – 13 January 2019
Learn the most effective yoga for relaxation and a balanced life.
Open to serious yoga students and teachers of all styles, as well as complimentary therapists and healthcare professionals.
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 course 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 the weekend knowing how to give people an experience of deep rest in a Restorative pose and the principles of Restorative yoga.
Our focus will be on the practicalities of teaching Restorative yoga in both group and private settings. We will continue to practice and learn more poses, looking also at the anatomy of the body in each pose. We will discuss Ayurveda for sequencing a class, how to recognise body types and which poses work best for different people. This weekend is a time to delve deeper, giving teachers the confidence to teach Restorative poses with precision and empathy.
You will learn:
• Physiology of relaxation
• Understanding functional anatomy in the context of passive yoga
• Comprehension of stress response and nervous system
• Mindfulness meditation to help students and clients relax
• Ethics of teaching
• Hands on adjustments
• Managing your own energy and avoiding burnout
• Safe and effective yoga poses for students dealing with a variety of health concerns
• How to use props effectively
