In this Yoga Alliance Registered Continuous Education, you will attain new tools for your yoga classes. Restorative Yoga may be taught as individual classes or you may incorporate the poses in other styles of yoga.
You will enrich your repetoar as a teacher in immersing your students in Rest and Relaxation. You will increase your understanding of how and why to use props, asanas, breath, meditation and body scanning as efficient tools to attain a more balanced nervous system.
Mindful Restorative Yoga is developed and based on the principles of, amongst other, Iyengar Yoga, Therapeutic Yoga and Mindfulness as taught by Jon Kabbat-Zin. The combination of these styles of teachings allow for a wonderful framework for deep relaxation that balances the body and mind. The use of props play an important role in creating the space for deep rest.
Using Mindfulness facilitates with Pratyahara (the withdrawal of the senses) – trains the mind to be more present, less reactive and more awake in the present moment.
