img_7345-final-crop-650Restorative Yoga is a deeply rejuvenating element that can be incorporated into any Yoga  practice.

Using props, the limbs are placed in gentle, supported asanas that literally hold the body, allowing it to release mental and physical tensions. These supported poses can be held longer, eliciting a deeper state of relaxation, which 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.

In this Teacher Certification Program you will learn and experience:

  • Safe and effective prop use and maintenance
  • Balanced sequences for general relaxation, rejuvenation, or special needs
  • How to incorporate restorative poses into a regular Hatha Yoga practice or class
  • The rejuvenating effects of restorative poses
  • How to lead and support students, friends, loved ones into restorative poses
  • Yoga Nidra (guided relaxation)
  • Asanas for enhancing breath practices (pranayama)

All props will be supplied for your use and practice during the course. Due to the nature of the practice, enrollment is limited to twenty students.  

Prerequisites: Basic Integral Yoga Hatha Teacher Training or its equivalent.

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
