Right Relaxation:

Foundational Restorative & Yin Yoga

Discover the transformational power and healing magic of stillness-based asana practice. The deep relaxation of Restorative Yoga enables the body, mind and spirit to renew and heal naturally through gentle/passive effort, while the long-held stretches of Yin Yoga allow connective tissue, fascia and joints time to release, hydrate and recalibrate. Yin & Restorative can (and should!) be used in personal practice, taught on their own, or incorporated into other class styles.

This 50-hour training takes place over two weekends, one per month. 

Curriculum includes:

• Dedicated practice in Yin & Restorative, plus complementary movement practices to prepare the body for relaxation.
• Right Relaxation: the nervous system, effects of chronic stress
• A&P of Static stretching, the fascial network and spinal health
• Pranayama, Breathwork, Guided Relaxation, Yoga Nidra and Somatic technique
• Sequencing, home practice, & practice teaching
• Asana Labs, benefits & contraindications

SCHEDULE: Fri 6pm-9pm – Sat 8am-8pm – Sun 8am-6pm
PRICING: $1125 ($1025 early bird by Dec 15, 2019)
