Course Overview

“Restorative Yoga is a Relaxation practice for Conscious Deep Rest. Rest is not self-indulgence, Rest is not optional; Rest is self-preservation, Rest is respect for life.”- Adelene Cheong

To ‘rest’, to ‘relax’ and to ‘restore’ is a natural vital process in our lives. Rest supports optimal physiological functioning, and promotes healing and growth. During rest, one’s autonomic nervous system switches from sympathetic-dominance to parasympathetic-dominance, regeneration and restoration is accelerated. Research has shown that relaxation and rest is essential to everyone of all ages and culture, size and shape.

Why do we practice Restorative Yoga?

  • To support health and vitality and as an antidote to stress
  • To replenish moments of depletion and fatigue at every level
  • To restore mental clarity and resilience
  • To reconnect to our innate true nature
  • To live with capacity for greater awareness and equanimity
  • To offer the best version of ourselves to the world

Whether your intention is to deepen personal understanding of restorative practices, or to offer it to family / friends, or to teach and share this healing practice, there will be comprehensive coverage of both the theoretical and practical application of restorative yoga.
