RESTORATIVE YOGA IMMERSION AND TEACHER TRAINING
Restorative Yoga helps us learn to relax and rest deeply and completely, benefiting all the systems of the body. Results include improved immune function, digestion, elimination, and the reduction of muscle tension and generalized fatigue. (Judith Hansen Lasater, Rest and Renew)
In this immersion, you will experience the benefits of Restorative Yoga, and deeply explore the practice, including: - the relaxation response and the central nervous system - alignment to support optimal energy flow - dynamic use of props - restorative yoga postures and sequences to support deep relaxation, rest and self-care
In the first weekend, participants will learn: 1. What is Restorative Yoga? Define Restorative Yoga and how it differs from Yin Yoga and other styles of yoga 2. The physiology of relaxation - activating the relaxation response 3. The physical and emotional benefits of restorative yoga 4. Time in the postures 5. Restorative postures 6. Experience the practice
In the second weekend, participants will build on the first weekend, learning: 1. A review of the central nervous system and the relaxation response 2. The importance of proper alignment in the poses 3. The importance of propping and how to effectively prop and support the body 4. The restorative postures and modifications 5. The importance of transitions 6. Restorative Yoga “language” 7. Setting up the space for Restorative Yoga 8. How to sequence and teach a Restorative Class
This immersion is appropriate for yoga teachers who are interested in learning the “how’s” and “why’s” of teaching Restorative Yoga, and the importance of properly propping and modifying the postures for their students.

The workshop is also appropriate for serious yoga students who would like to deepen their knowledge of Restorative Yoga, and develop a personal self-care practice including the restorative postures.
