Restorative Yoga 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, thus regeneration and restoration is accelerated. Research has shown that relaxation and rest are essential to everyone of all ages, cultures, 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 the capacity for greater awareness and equanimity
  • to offer the best version of ourselves to the world
Come and learn the art and science of Restorative Yoga, and gain the skills to practice active relaxation. This Relax & Restore Intensive immersion supports ample space and time for learning, reflection and integration. Whether your intention is to deepen your personal understanding of restorative practices, offer it to family/friends/clients, or to teach and share this healing practice. There will be comprehensive coverage of both the theoretical and practical applications of restorative yoga.
