Restorative Yoga Teacher Training

with Tara Green

Registration is now full! Please contact us for our next training dates in 2019.

Restorative Yoga is a gentle yoga practice which uses various props to create a soft support for the body to facilitate a deeper release of the physical body. As the physical body moves into a deeper state of release and relaxation, then the mind is able to quiet down. Restorative Yoga is often referred to as a holistic healing practice, the support that is offered in restorative postures triggers a healing response. Restorative Yoga is both a therapeutic and restful practice, the postures should feel completely relaxed and ideally no physical sensations should be felt. The deep relaxation and long holds of Restorative Yoga postures stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, invoking a state of calm release into the body and mind.

* 20 hours in class time

Yin Foundations Teacher Training

with Candace Morrison

Please stay tuned for our next Yin Yoga Teacher Training in 2019 and contact us with any questions.

Yin Yoga: The Foundations of a Quiet Practice

Yin Teacher Training gives an opportunity to investigate and deepen your yoga practice. Just as my teachers, Paul Grilley and Bo Forbes share, we will explore the phase change in the mind, physical and the energetic body. Adding yin poses to your practice is especially affective in changing the matrix of your connective tissues, your cellular structures and your energy. We explore how this gentle practice, offers us quiet time to relax, hold space, and feel the phase changes. Become the observer and sink into introspection.

No prior Yin Yoga experience is required. If you would like to deepen your understanding of the body, but not be a yoga teacher, you are also welcome to come and participate.

Prior certification to teach yoga is not a prerequisite. This course will be recognized as credits toward your 300 or 500 – hour certification, recognized by Yoga Alliance.

Topics we will discuss:

· Key meridians located in the fascia of the body, the energetic body

· A Buddhist perspective on yin poses

· Which poses impact the meridian lines and the connective tissue

· Anatomy and physiology; which body systems, including the mind- body- emotional body connection which are impacted by a yin practice

· Foundations of a yin practice

· Origins and history of Yin

· Understand muscle group that posture supposed to be stretching (functional approach)
