This training is designed for new and experienced yoga practitioners/ teachers as well as body work and healing professionals. We will explore the dynamics of guided relaxation, breathing techniques and restorative sequences in a therapeutic capacity.
Restorative yoga is a gentle, conscious-relaxation practice that allows the body and mind to open at their own pace, utilizing a variety of props to support the body with little to no mental or physical effort. It is the practice of observing and feeling the body and energy with increasing subtle awareness, to create a state of active relaxation. The body is held, and the mind rests in the experience of enlivened relaxation, and the gentle tide of the breath.
The process of relaxation has many benefits and aids the mind and body in entering a deep state of rejuvenating rest. We will learn the art and skill of supporting the body, sequencing, transitioning, basic relaxation, and healing touch to aid in this process of complete surrender and relaxation.
