“You do not have to be good./ You only have to let the soft animal of your body/

love what it loves.” ~ Mary Oliver

The art of undoing patterns of tension, gripping, and protective holding is at the heart of restorative yoga. At this particular moment in our collective history, creating the time and space for deeper listening is crucial for self-care and for leading a truly well-balanced yoga class.

This training is dedicated to exploring the benefits and transformative potential in restorative yoga for EVERY body, everyday. From the strategic use of props, to crafting genuine and customized support tailored to a diverse audience, we’ll tap into a quieter, nourishing practice. (You’ll also get plenty of time on the bolster for yourself!)

You’ll leave this training with a dynamic and mobile restorative toolbox, confidence in your intuition as a teacher and practitioner, and a quiet sense of grounding.

Who is this training for?

  • Yoga students interested in a deeper understanding of the power of restorative yoga, and how to integrate these techniques into your home practice

  • Yoga teachers who are interested in teaching restorative yoga

  • Yoga teachers who are interested in weaving restorative shapes into their non-restorative classes

You’ll leave with:

  • A clear understanding of how to skillfully incorporate restorative poses into your classes

  • Working with abundant AND limited props

  • Crafting an intuitive and soulful restorative yoga class for your students, and yourself

  • Understanding the power of basic hands-on assists

  • Thoughts on the wisdom of omitting hands-on assists

  • Knowledge of the variables that can create a trauma-informed restorative class
