Intro To Teaching the Softer Side of Yoga


Saturday, June 9th – Sunday, June 10th

W/ Andra Aitken

Rest is essential to a healthy mind, body, and life. In our day-to-day experiences we all-too-often overextend ourselves by taking on more than we should, and then worrying about the rest. Resting the mind and restoring the body becomes imperative for rejuvenating the spirit. It is one of the greatest blessings to guide our students into the various practices of restoration.

Gentle forms of yoga are linked with stress reduction and can change the physical and mental response to stress. Yoga philosophy states that at the core of our being, we are loving, peaceful, radiant beings. As we relax the physical body, calm the mind, nurture the senses, and observe, our awareness moves into deeper layers of consciousness, or what we could call our TRUE self.

To deepen your understanding and support you in guiding others, this training will cover

  • Yoga Philosophy of the True Self
  • The Science of Rest
  • Overview of different types of gentle yoga
  • Blueprint to lead a gentle yoga experience
  • Voice quality
  • Room set-up
    & more
