If you want to teach people a new way of thinking, don’t bother trying to teach them. Instead, give them a tool, the use of which will lead to new ways of thinking.

32 Hours of Continuing Education

Restorative Yoga: The Art of Rest is a weekend long program that draws upon subtle energy awareness and experience to bring each student into a layer of balance. Using asana, pranayama, meditation, visualization, ecology, and art the practitioner/student can construct individual recovery processes that speak directly to their needs. This training will encourage each student to guide and be guided in a restorative fashion. Throughout the weekend students will explore physical and energetic methods; using linguistics and presence to set the tone. Hands-on & hands-off adjustments, sequencing for affects, traditional & modern adaptations, lecture & discussion, and art & nature moments will be called into focus, giving the students a secure, but varied foundation to teach and/or deepen their personal practice.

This training is designed for new and experienced yoga instructors, as well as students who have a sincere interest in deepening their understanding behind the mechanics of restorative yoga. This training also lends itself to health care professionals (nurses/doctors), personal trainers, physical therapists, care-takers, body-workers, and/or counselors/coaches. This training is recognized by Yoga Alliance and is eligible for Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) - 20 contact hours + 12 non-contact hours = 32 hours in total.

Students will receive:

1). A certificate of completion that is eligible for Yoga Alliance CEUs.

3). Recommended resources to further the learning experience

4). A teacher "tune-up" virtually or in person. On-going access to deeper studies upon request, eligible for CEUs.
