Restorative Yoga Teacher Training – 2017
with Satya Greenstone, E-RYT 500
June 2 - 11, 2017
Restorative Yoga is a deeply rejuvenating element that can be incorporated into any Yoga practice.
Using props, the body is placed in gentle, supported asanas that can be held longer without physical effort. These poses can be offered to students low in energy, or during times of stress, illness, healing, or crisis. They release mental and physical tensions, elicit a deeper state of relaxation, and allow the body to return to its natural state of balance and peace.
These poses can be offered to students low in energy, or during times of stress, illness, healing, or crisis. They enable students to receive the asana’s benefit without exerting physical effort.

Satya held such a large healing and supportive space for us. She teaches from the heart (and leads me to my own) while sneaking in academia under the radar… [Her students are] blessed with knowledge, support, and growth. — Past Participant
