Restorative Yoga with Karen Cove
Restorative Yoga has become a much sought after practice. More and more, yoga students are discovering the benefits of this gentle and effective method of relieving chronic mental and physical stress.
This is a hands-on, practical course. Our discussions will explore how to properly teach asana in a restorative way, and how to utilize different props to allow deep relaxation to occur. Restorative sequences are designed to move the spine in every direction, including twists and inverted poses. Focusing on safe sequencing, anatomical discussions are an integral aspect of this teacher training. You will learn the techniques for communicating this practice to others.
Through this course, you will gain new perspectives on yoga practice through a different lens. Develop an understanding of restorative yoga as a therapeutic tool. Become aware of the effects on your own body, and learn how to observe shifts and changes in your students within a public class setting. Our objective is that you will gain confidence and understanding in restorative yoga so you can use these skills to assist yourself and others.
A certificate of completion will be granted upon successful completion of the course.
