In our culture of constant activity and distraction everything seems to accelerate and we find ourselves over stimulated and constantly trying to catch up and keep pace. In this training you will learn how to work with your nervous system and breath to decelerate, slow down and discover spaciousness and stillness within. It is by experiencing this relaxation state first that you will be able to guide your students into a similar experience.
This is a gentle and supportive style of Yoga that uses various props to support the body. When the body is fully supported, it will naturally relax, releasing deeply held tensions. Restorative yoga is the Art of non-doing, and focuses on effortlessness and ease, using well-placed blankets, bolsters, yoga straps, and chairs to safely support the body in various postures. This process invokes a natural state of balance, regeneration, and deep rest.
It is a soothing, nurturing and slow paced practice that promotes the healing effects of rest. This is especially helpful for insomnia, depression, stress, low back pain, anxiety etc. In this training inspired by the teaching of Judith Hanson Lasater, you will learn straightforward techniques to practice and teach Restorative Yoga.
After completing this course you will be able to teach Restorative yoga classes for all bodies and ages. You will also be able to integrate restorative poses into other styles of classes, introduce prop-usage techniques, design practice sessions with respect to each different body type and to be able to assist safely students during their practice.

Welcome to this online Restorative Training! My name is Gwen.
After competing more than 10 years in divers sports up to World Championships I have found myself experiencing more and more injuries. I took my first Yoga class 15 years ago while looking for a change from my usual work-out and I feel that this is in general how a lot of us came into the yoga practice.
After practicing yang styles such as Vinyasa or Ashtanga for many years, I had the honour to study Restorative Yoga with Lizzie Lasater, her mom Judith Hanson Lasater and Cindy Lee. This practice have taught me so much that I since share it with passion to every student that is interested in it.
I feel it is a privileged to be a yoga facilitator and to be able to share this amazing practice of Yoga. We don’t always have the chance to travel away from home to deepen our studies and I hope that by sharing knowledge online more of you will be able to dive deep into the beautiful practice of Restorative Yoga.
