RESTORATIVE YOGA TEACHER TRAINING

WITH COLLEEN DWYER

Restorative Yoga is the practice of supporting the body in a specific asana (posture) with the use of props such as bolsters, blankets, blocks, etc.  In this state the asana is able to be held for significantly longer than without support, which gives the body an opportunity to open and release long held muscles on a deeper level than in an active yoga practice.

 

The stillness of body and mind allows: mental and physical tension to dissolve, your body to rejuvenate, your nervous system to calm, and invites the innate intelligence of the bodies’ systems to reintegrate. Through this practice you are guided towards your natural state of health and well being.  Restorative Yoga is beneficial for every body!

 

This course is ideal for those who want to expand their knowledge and practice. This four day course is highly beneficial for those who want to knowledgeably develop a restorative home practice, for teachers who want to confidently and safely guide their students into restorative yoga postures, and for medical professionals who want to adapt wholistic tools to share with their patients.
