Now’s the time to sign up for Fundamentals of Teaching Restorative Yoga, which will meet in person at Carrboro Yoga in Carrboro/Chapel Hill, NC, February 18 and 19. This is a module in Carolina Yoga Company’s advanced studies teacher training; it is also open to teachers from any movement modality. It offers 18 YA CEUs.
I’m leading this workshop! Join me to learn how to design and lead restorative yoga classes, and get to practice, too!
This workshop includes a preassignment and follow-along classes (lucky you!) to complete before we meet, so please budget at least five hours to prepare your homework—that’s why it’s a good idea to sign up now.
Our in-person sessions will:
+ Create a clear definition of what constitutes restorative yoga—and what differentiates it from gentle yoga and yin yoga
+ Take a bird’s-eye view of the nervous system and its experience in restorative yoga
+ Workshop the student experience in restorative yoga classes, so we can empathize with and serve our students better
+ Prompt you to design restorative sequences; you’ll also get full class plans to use right away
+ Experiment with perfect prop placement for every body
+ Build your confidence in leading students of every age and level of ability
+ Give you a warm, supportive environment in which to practice your newfound restorative yoga teaching skills and prop expertise
After we meet in person, you’ll design and submit restorative yoga class plans for Sage’s review and have some back-and-forth mentorship; budget four hours for this work. You’ll also get full access to a sequence library to help you plan classes for every student.
We meet Saturday, 10 a.m.–1 p.m. and 2–5 p.m., and again Sunday, 10 a.m.–1 p.m. (There is no Sunday afternoon session, freeing you to travel.) If you’re coming from out of town, our Travel Accommodations page has suggestions.
