We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.

During this module we will learn the art of Restorative yoga, how it facilitates healing and how it can be applied therapeutically for numerous stress related and chronic illnesses. The weekend module will provide an understanding of the nervous system, endocrine system and energy body and how restorative yoga can create balance in our sympathetically tuned lifestyles. During deep relaxation, all the organ systems of the body are benefited through the rest and digest cycle of the parasympathetic nervous system improving: blood pressure, digestion, fertility, insomnia, adrenal fatigue, muscle tension an more. We will dissect the restorative postures, explore their therapeutic effects and examine how best to “prop” or support each individual according to their specific therapeutic needs. Upon completion, participants will be able to create, practice and guide Restorative Yoga practices in a therapeutic context. Participants will learn a syllabus of restorative yoga postures, learn what poses to use in what context, and how best to prop and support your students with varying mobility issues and injuries. Finally Participants will learn how to effectively guide interoceptive body scans, bringing self-awareness to areas of tension in the body.
