Description: Restorative Yoga, the yoga of non-doing, is a core practice underlying the very essence of yoga. Even those with an active yoga practice will benefit from the inner peace and deep release of Restorative Yoga. It is a practice that speaks directly to the Central Nervous System. Supported and stabilized by various props, one experiences the yoga postures as profoundly relaxing and deeply rejuvenating, invoking a natural state of healing rest, renewal and equanimity. In this 17.5 hour workshop Yoga Teachers will experience a practice each day to feel the effects first hand. We will break down the class sequences and each categories of poses. We will also support each other in partners or small group work in order to see and sense what different individuals might need for comfort as well as sequence and teach a class in groups. Each teacher will be encouraged to step outside the box and get creative to serve their students for the ultimate comfort experience in which they can let go the weight of the world.
