This comprehensive training is open to yoga teachers seeking CEU credits through Yoga Alliance, students wishing to deepen their practice, and anyone interested in harnessing the transformative benefits of restorative yoga.
Benefits of Restorative Yoga
Restorative yoga is a gentle and therapeutic practice that focuses on deep relaxation, stillness, and rejuvenation. It offers numerous benefits that can positively impact your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Our favorite benefits include:
Relaxation and Stress Relief: Restorative yoga helps activate the parasympathetic nervous system, promoting deep relaxation and reducing the effects of chronic stress. Through conscious breathing and intentional movement, participants experience a profound sense of calm and tranquility.
Physical Healing and Rehabilitation: By utilizing props such as blankets, bolsters, blocks, and aerial hammocks, restorative yoga allows the body to comfortably hold gentle postures for extended periods. This gentle stretching and opening of the body promotes flexibility, releases tension, and improves circulation, aiding in the recovery from injuries and chronic conditions.
Nervous System Regulation: In our training program, you will learn about the anatomy and functioning of the nervous system. Through specific restorative poses and breathwork techniques, you can balance and regulate your nervous system, reducing anxiety and promoting overall well-being.
Enhanced Mindfulness and Meditation: Restorative yoga provides a nurturing environment for the cultivation of mindfulness and meditation. As you settle into supported poses, you learn to observe your thoughts, sensations, and emotions with greater clarity and acceptance. This increased self-awareness can positively impact your daily life, helping you navigate challenges with grace and resilience.
