"Nothing comes unannounced, but many can miss the announcement. So it's very important to actually listen to your own intuition rather than driving through it."
The art of non doing or undoing, restorative yoga is the counter practice to our daily lives; the grind, the habits, the hurry, and the strain. Restorative yoga recruits props and solitude to generate recovery within the body. Once experienced by the body, the effects of restoration radiate into the entire human system, transitioning beyond class.

The Restorative Yoga Teacher Training is a weekend long program that draws upon subtle energy awareness and experience to bring each student into new layers of understanding. Using asana, pranayama, meditation, visualization, ecology, and art the practitioner/student can construct an individual recovery processes that speak directly to their needs. This training will encourage each student to guide and be guided in a restorative fashion. Throughout the weekend students will explore physical and energetic methods; using linguistics and presence to set the tone. Hands-on & hands-off adjustments, sequencing for affects, traditional & modern adaptations, lecture & discussion, and art & nature moments will be called into focus, giving the students a secure, but varied foundation to teach and/or deepen their personal practice.
