Restorative Yoga Teacher Training

Science can measure the numerous benefits of relaxation to the physical body, and yogis have long known the mental, emotional and spiritual benefits. With Restorative Yoga now on the rise as the fastest growing style of yoga in the US, it is no wonder that this practice of relaxation and ease is becoming so popular. From a young age we are taught how to strive, work hard and keep moving, but rarely have we been shown how to rest and rejuvenate. Restorative poses teach us how to relax, become still and get centered.
Spira’s Essentials of Restorative Yoga is a 2-day intensive Restorative Yoga training for those interested in diving deeper into a Restorative Yoga practice as well as for those wanting to learn how to teach Restorative Yoga effectively. Yoga students can learn how to sequence a home practice and improve their own relaxation skills both in and outside of the yoga classroom. Yoga teachers can improve their teaching and broaden their repertoire by learning effective methods of teaching, sequencing, and assisting students in this increasingly popular practice.
