Yoga Shala of Portland says
Restorative yoga is the art of letting go and practice of simplicity. Habitual patterns that build up over time from every day experiences, may lead to pain, tension, stress or even disease. To turn inward and slow down we can soon discover what is actually blocking our movement forward and thus begin the journey of releasing knots held and ultimately changing our patterns. It is the role of the Restorative yoga teacher to hold space for the student, to inspire and help them along their journey.

Teaching the Art of Letting Go is a deeply therapeutic approach that will prepare teachers of all lineages with a deeper understanding of the Restorative practice. In this continuing education course, designed for new and experienced yoga teachers, we move past instructing from a script and into confidently constructing sequences that will provide each student an experience of release and restoration. You will gain the tools to see each student in front of you and work with each of their individualistic needs. Through hands-on and experiential practices, you will explore the many applications and possibilities of this practice.

Whether you are looking to teach specialized Restorative offerings or become more confident in integrating these practices into your established classes, this training will provide you with the tools you need. With the yoga market saturated, having special skills or a niche will help you establish yourself an invaluable asset. This training will enhance your teaching and even open up even more questions to explore.

Topics will include:
• Developing an understanding of restorative poses with practical applications and experiences
• Adjustments and assisting students
• Understanding individuality of students and their needs
• Integrating principles of breath, meditation, sound, etc to further the student experience
• Verbal cues and the art of holding space
• How Restorative practice effects the nervous system
• Stress Response and the effects of stress
• Central Nervous System and subtle body
