Expand Your Skill Set with Restorative Yoga

In today's fast-paced and over-stimulated culture, more and more yoga students and teachers are turning toward a calming, slowing, and introspective yoga practice. Restorative yoga is the answer! Whether you plan to deepen your understanding of restorative yoga or teach it to your students, this comprehensive online course will help you gain the knowledge–through experience—of the healing power of restorative yoga!

This perennial favorite—now offered online for the first time—is a perfect way to gain from your experiences of the past year, and empower yourself to achieve your goals in the coming year, all in a relaxed, supportive environment of other spiritual seekers.

Yoga teachers love this training because they get to practice a lot of Restorative Yoga! Through Melody Hansen’s expert guidance, you’ll feel what it’s like to be nurtured and cared for in a Restorative class with guided relaxation techniques. During this course there will be time to:

  • Enjoy guided practice for your own renewal

  • Use the breath to invoke the Relaxation Response
  • Learn modifications and variations needed for students with special conditions
  • Practice several hands-on adjustments to deepen your student’s and/or client’s experience of deep relaxation
