Learn Advanced Skills to Teach Restorative Yoga
Are your yoga students feeling overwhelmed and stressed out? Do they have difficulty sleeping? Do they leave class before savasana?

Sometimes traditional Western remedies for stress fall short of our expectations. Learning how to relax can support the healing process. Restorative yoga is a practice of conscious, supported relaxation that is quiet yet powerful. Incorporating restorative yoga into your life can also spark creativity and problem-solving, enhance focus, and fortify emotional wellbeing.

In Module 1 of this training, you will experience a full restorative class and dive into the science of relaxation and how to embody it in foundational restorative yoga poses. You will get hands-on practice in setting up poses, modifying to mitigate pain and/or promote comfort, and Lisa will discuss how to sequence restorative yoga within an active asana class, as well as how to plan an entire class focused on relaxation. You will get feedback on your set-ups and also hone your observational skills. In Module 2 of this training, you will build on the knowledge and experience gained in Module 1 by focusing on more advanced fully supported inverted restorative poses. As in active asana, you want to move your body in all directions. You will get hands-on practice in setting up supported inversions and further refine your observational skills. You will also touch on the ways in which fully supported inversions can be therapeutic. Throughout both modules, you’ll learn how to articulate the importance and benefits of relaxation on and off the mat.
