Restorative Yoga Teacher Training | 30 Hours

With Lizzie Lasater

Our bodies know how to relax. Our bodies know how to heal themselves.

Restorative yoga is about giving our bodies time and creating the conditions for relaxation and healing to occur.

We are all exhausted. Stress, the leading syndrome of our urban lives, leads to heart disease, obesity, infertility, indigestion, lowered immune function and much more. In the pursuit of health and work-life balance, yoga has become another thing on our to-do list. In our ambitious obsession with “doing” we have forgotten the healing power of “being.”

In Restorative yoga we:

  • Learn how to stop “doing” and start “being”.
  • The pose is the actor and we are the receiver.
  • We discover the secret to going slow, paying attention, and being still.
  • We practice deep rest and listen to the rhythm of our own hearts.
  • We emphasize “being” rather than “doing.”

Our bodies know how to relax. Our bodies know how to heal themselves. Restorative yoga is about giving our bodies time and creating the conditions for relaxation and healing to occur.

First you will learn straightforward techniques for teaching introversion and stillness. You will gain the ability to offer your students ways to soothe their overstimulated sympathetic nervous systems and find relief from the stress of their busy lives.

Them we take a targeted look at the theory, alignment, sequencing, and energetics of Restorative yoga. You will learn, for example, to teach supported inversions, the most advanced poses for quieting the brain, decreasing anxiety, boosting the immune system, and hormonal balance.

The details

How can we best support our students to find silence in the midst of our cacophonous 21st century? How do we make space for the unseen inner work of yoga in a culture ever more mesmerised by materiality and consumerism? How can we personally integrate a profession about slowing down and giving our attention to spiritual growth into our accelerating lives?
