Restorative Training With Ayurveda and Advanced Assists
This 10-hour training is for Restorative Yoga teachers who wish to add to their repertoire and student support. We will discuss going beyond the basics and incorporate the wisdom of Ayurvedic principles as they are applied to Restorative Yoga practice. We will explore the subtle supports such as music, language, and energetics. Other supplements include advanced assists that incorporate techniques from Thai Yoga Therapy and Partner Yoga. Students can self-select their readiness for the training; Level 1 Restorative Training is not required.
Restorative Yoga is a deeply healing lunar practice. It is suggested to balance the vigorous solar practices of Power and Hatha yoga as well as the stressful modern lifestyle. You are not exerting effort in Restorative Yoga, but in fact surrendering and allowing all physiological systems to soften and open. This releases deep layers of tension in the musculo-skeletal structure, nervous system, emotional body, and mind. You will cultivate the sense of being held and supported, and allow yourself to drop down into that deep state of tranquility and cellular repair, letting go of layers of tension, and allowing your wisdom and healing power to pervade the experience.
Other topics of discussion include sequencing, methodology, cueing, and use of props. We will also practice together and access the deep states of relaxation where insight and healing occur. You will learn to develop a home practice.
A public workshop will be offered on Sunday of the weekend training to help students establish a safe, intelligent at-home practice. Trainees are welcome to this Sunday offering to take class, observe, or practice their newly-learned assists.
STUDENTS: You may attend this training if you are a committed Restorative Yoga student, because the best way to learn something is to learn to teach it.
