20 HR RESTORATIVE YOGA TRAINING
WEEKEND IMMERSION COURSES
RESTORATIVE YOGA TRAINING
SINGLE WEEKEND TRAINING COURSES
Western Science is now measuring the numerous benefits of relaxation to the body and mind, which yogis have long known. With Restorative Yoga now on the rise in popularity in the US, it is no wonder that this practice of relaxation and ease is so successful. 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. The Restorative Yoga practice teaches us how to relax, become still and get centered.
Spira’s Restorative Yoga Training is a weekend intensive 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 relaxation skills both in and outside of the yoga classroom. Yoga teachers can build upon their teaching techniques and broaden their repertoire by learning effective methods of teaching, sequencing and assisting students in this increasingly popular practice.
