Restorative yoga is the art of being, not doing. Restorative yoga sets the body up in positions to passively stretch while being supported by props. This extra support from the props releases the mind from trying to keep the body engaged or to work through unnecessary tension so the mind and the body can work toward full rest and rejuvenation. Restorative yoga helps the nervous system to remember how to rest when stress is high, stimulates circulation, and releases tension.
This online interactive restorative yoga teacher training will offer insight into the foundational restorative yoga postures and how they can be sequenced to offer full-length and short restorative yoga practices. This training is perfect for anyone who wants to learn more about restorative yoga, build a restorative yoga practice, and yoga teachers who want to offer a gentler practice in their classes and with private students. Each session will offer a combination of theory, application, practice, and teaching.

"As a long time yoga practitioner, I had considered doing a teacher training program for years and I'm so glad I chose the Radiance program. I found it comprehensive, insightful and practical as we were given many hands on opportunities to practice the skills we learned at each session. I left the program feeling fully prepared to step into the studio and teach students and have enjoyed doing so since my graduation. A big thanks to my wonderful teacher trainers who led me through a fulfilling experience!"
