Whether you are just starting out on your journey as a Yoga Teacher, seeking to enhance your existing teaching skills or simply wish to develop your personal practice, our Restorative Yoga Teacher Training immersion will provide you with the tools to enrich your practice and teach authentically, grounded both in self-awareness and experiential knowledge.
Restorative Yoga is one of the most wholesome and non-dogmatic approaches to yoga today. As our world speeds up, and our need to slow-down because of a health necessity, Restorative Yoga is gaining increasing appreciation among teachers and practitioners all over the world..
Who's this for?
This course is a welcome study immersion for yoga teachers and teachers in training to refresh, renew and to deepen their practice and study. It’s also open to dedicated yoga students (minimum of 2 years consistent practice) wanting to deepen their understanding and practice of yoga, and health professionals (e.g. Osteopaths, Psychomotor Therapists) keen to broaden their knowledge and skills (please note, this wouldn’t certify you as a Restorative Yoga Teacher).
