Content + Structure
This 50hr Restorative Yoga Teaching Immersion creates space for exploration and study. Restorative Yoga is a complementary yoga practice to the more dynamic and invigorating yoga styles that are predominant today, but also useful as a stand-alone healing practice. In this Immersion, we will explore Restorative practice, the Nervous System & Organs, Yoga Anatomy & Physiology, the Art of Teaching Restorative and Teaching Restorative Yoga as a Therapy.
Deborah will share her experience and the tools of the practice, exploring how to relax and rest deeply. Each day will include Restorative Practice as well as Meditation and Self-reflection. You will be required to have your own daily practice during the course as well as journaling.
