Restorative Yoga Teacher Training
April 14-16, 2023
In this weekend immersion and teacher training you'll be skillfully guided by senior Prana Teacher Training faculty member Pamela Godde E-RYT500 and learn to teach the healing form of Restorative Yoga with confidence. Whether you are a new Yoga teacher or a “seasoned” veteran ready to expand your current teaching skills and repertoire, or a Yoga student desiring to learn more about the quieter practices of Yoga, we invite you to join us!
Restorative Yoga is a slow, healing style of Yoga that encourages deep physical, mental, and emotional relaxation.
In Restorative Yoga, the postures focus on stillness, long holds & deep breathing and are supported by a variety of Yoga props (blankets, bolsters, blocks). Easily accessible for all levels, Restorative Yoga offers a rejuvenating practice that balances the mind and body, cultivates conscious relaxation and releases deep seated tension.
It’s an easy, effective stress reduction method and recovery tool to counter our fast-paced lives – a perfect supplement for more active styles of Yoga and an invaluable resource for anyone dealing with stress and anxiety and recovering from illness & injury.
