We're so encouraged to be witnessing a growing recognition of the importance of Restorative Yoga, as well as a trend for slowing down regular asana practice! Studio timetables are creating slots for Restorative classes and many teachers are including elements of the practice in their own workshops and retreats. Of course, there are various teacher trainings for you to consider, but after several years of offering this training we have refreshed, updated and enhanced our content for 2018.
Course Director, Beverley Nolan, has co-created a syllabus that is based on many years practice, teaching and training others in Restorative Yoga. Inspired by the work of Judith Hanson Lasater, Donna Farhi, Roger Cole and Richard Miller, and her work with Linda Hartley and Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen she draws strongly on the principles of embodied anatomy,somatic psychology and trauma-sensitivity throughout.
Co-teacher Tiffany Thorne brings unique insights from yoga philosphy texts and her growing body of work in Emboded Sanskrit.
It's our desire that you come away from our training informed, equipped and inspired, and ready to maximise the potential of your time and financial investment with us. We'd also like you to be as passionate about the practice as we are!
