Restorative Yoga rejuvenates vital life force energy (prana) by deeply calming the nervous system and quieting the mind, reconnecting us to our essential vitality. Supportive props are utilized in long comfortably held postures, deeply soothing the central nervous system while creating subtle openings and releases in the physical body. This effective practice easily helps the body to reset and tap into its own innate healing abilities. This is the “art of relaxation” where doing less is truly more… more clarity, energy and balance!
In this 25 hour Restorative Yoga Training, you will learn through first-hand experience the healing benefits of the restorative practice. We’ll explore the “what, why and how” for the application of restorative yoga as a method of regulating the nervous system.
