Restorative Yoga Teacher Training: Part 1 & 2

  • Bow Street Yoga 34 Bow Street Somerville, MA, 02143 United States (map)

August 22nd-26th

1:30-5:30pm | $500

To paraphrase Judith Lasater: “The yoga mat has become a place of challenge”. While that challenge is not necessarily a bad thing, it can sometimes overwhelm the more quiet aspects of the asana practice. Due to this tendency, understanding the restorative practice is perhaps an essential part of any modern yogis study. It is especially important as a teacher to have a basic understanding for the technique and physiology behind restoratives and relaxation in general. This weekend will be devoted to learning the foundational restorative postures as well as how to set them up and modify based on a students needs. As a bonus we will also spend a TON of time relaxing in these poses!

Part 1: Introduction to the purely passive practice of restorative yoga. Students will learn to setup the basic restorative poses as well understand how to modify and adjust the postures for their students. 

Part 2:  Students will learn to work with props in a more nuanced way than the first weekend. We will explore the physiology of 'stretching' and how props can be used to support a gradual and safe opening of the body.

What to bring: yoga mat, notebook, and eye covering.
