Gentle Restorative Teacher Training

2020 dates to be announced.

This training is open to both teachers who want to expand their knowledge and hone their teaching skills and students who want to deepen their knowledge of a gentler, more restorative practice.  The training will cover fundamental use of props, aligning and teaching restorative yoga postures and gentle posture sequencing in addition to meditation and pranayama practices, anatomy and yoga philosophy.  Emphasis will be placed on bringing the asana practice to students who need a slower pace and proper support for the postures.  You will learn how to adapt, modify and prop postures using blocks, straps, blankets, bolsters, chairs, sandbags and stuff around the house ;0) in order to create an intelligent practice for those students with a range of physical abilities and medical conditions.

Kelly Solloway is a 500 ERYT teacher with Yoga Alliance. CEU credits are available to teachers who need to fulfill their continuing education requirement for Yoga Alliance. Upon completion of all requirements of the training a Certificate of Completion will be issued.
