Restorative yoga is the art of being, not doing. Restorative yoga sets the body up in positions to passively stretch while being supported by props. This extra support from the props releases the mind from trying to keep the body engaged or to work through unnecessary tension so the mind and the body can work toward full rest and rejuvenation. Restorative yoga helps the nervous system to remember how to rest when stress is high, stimulates circulation, and releases tension.

In today’s culture of overachieving and multi-tasking, it is little wonder that most people indicate having moderate to high levels of stress. Stress can present itself physically in the body through tension headaches, muscle or joint pain, fatigue, and a foggy mind. Restorative yoga allows the body to rest
and reap the benefits of the functions of the parasympathetic nervous system.

Learning Objectives:

  • Create a nurturing and well-rounded restorative yoga class
  • Teach effectively in person and online
  • Breakdown the set-up of key restorative yoga postures and understand modifications, benefits, and contraindications
  • Learn to appropriately support different bodies with props for deep rest
  • Discover ways to utilize at home items as props
  • Learn to transform almost any asana posture into a restorative posture
  • Cultivate language and insight to build sequences around body areas, desired effect, or general sense of calm
  • Investigate spinal alignment to determine how to best support the body
  • Work with different techniques to guide and support students through their rest
  • Uncover breathing techniques to bolster your sequence’s desired effect and support relaxation
  • Learn different ways to sequence and cue a class based on your environment and availability of props
  • Recognize when students are uncomfortable and how to best assist them verbally and with prop adjustments
  • Gain an understanding of the basics of how the nervous system works and how the parasympathetic nervous system functions for stress management

A minimum of 10 students, combined livestream and in studio, is required for the training to run.

All participants must provide their own props:

  • One bolster or pillow
  • 2 yoga blocks or equivalent
  • 3 blankets or large towels
  • 1 yoga strap or regular belt
