Restorative Yoga

Course Description

Our 40 hour Restorative yoga teacher training gives you the tools to address and bring balance to your and your students’ health and wellness issues. This incredible training explores the most recent neuroscience in restorative yoga.

In our overwhelming, fast-paced world where we are subject to constant stimuli (traffic, media, people, jobs, families, etc) and stress, our sympathetic nervous systems tend to be in a state of constant arousal. This contributes to conditions ranging from anxiety and insomnia to burnout and inflammatory diseases such as diabetes and Alzheimer’s.

Restorative yoga helps you make space to destress and promote parasympathetic activity. As we gently nudge our nervous system towards parasympathetic tone, restorative yoga allows the “rest and digest” system of our bodies to work and heal.

Restorative yoga uses props like chairs, blocks, straps, sandbags, bolsters, and blankets to completely support the body and enable the mind and body to release tension, stress, and blockages. It is slow-paced, gentle and calming and is particularly effective at calming the nervous system.
