* For all practitioners & Be Luminous Yoga 300-Hour Teacher Trainees*
Restorative yoga is considered the true antidote to stress because it is a practice that allows you to relax deeply with awareness. Relaxing with awareness is the key to bringing the mind‐body into a state of balance or homeostasis, similar to the effect of meditation.
Modern life is extremely demanding, and it’s easy to be swept away by the intensity of its pace. Today’s pace of life can cause us to be in a constant state of high alert, as our bodies release stress hormones that stimulate the sympathetic nervous system, or our ‘fight or flight’ response. This affects our ability to sleep soundly, to properly digest our food, to feel grounded, to have mental clarity and focus, as well as our ability to conceive a child.
Restorative Yoga integrates fully supported yin poses and passively held postures. Through props and positioning, each asana is practiced in a way that the practitioner feels held and supported. This allows you to relax deeply and completely, stimulating a parasympathetic response and allowing our bodies' systems and rythms to recalibrate and heal. This restores our sense of balance, mentally, physiacally and emotionally.
This training is intended for yoga instructors who would like to teach Restorative yoga, as well as for yoga practitioners who would like to more deeply understand the Retrostaive Yoga practice.
