We work very hard in our lives, and while we may sleep, we rarely take time to rest. Restorative yoga poses help us learn to relax and rest deeply and completely. During deep relaxation, all the organ systems of the body are benefited, and a few of the measurable results of relaxation are the reduction of blood pressure and the improvement of immune function, as well as improvement in digestion, fertility elimination, and the reduction of muscle tension and generalized fatigue.

In this 20 hour workshop we will learn the art and skill of teaching Restorative yoga. All aspects of the subject will be covered, including:

  • The physiology of relaxation.
  • The physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of Restorative yoga.
  • Special poses for menstruation, pregnancy and menopause.
  • How to sequence and teach a class in Restorative yoga.
