Stay-at-Home Restorative Yoga Immersion & Teacher Training
May 14 , 2020
With Andra Aitken
Learn the beauty of rest, relaxation, and stillness in the comfort of your own home in this 20-hour online training.
Immerse yourself in the joy, theory, and practice of teaching Restorative Yoga. Learn to guide yourself and others into the deepest layers of ease and relaxation. Restorative Yoga is a practice of receiving support and allowing stillness to take the mind and body into a place of peace and tranquility. The practitioner holds poses with the aid of bolsters, blankets, pillows, blocks, and straps so that muscles can unwind into greater openness: soothing the nervous system, calming the “fight or flight response,” and quieting the mind.
