Content & Structure for Teaching Restorative Yoga
This Teaching Immersion into Restorative Yoga creates space for exploration and study.

In this Immersion, we will explore:

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.
