Theory, practice and Teaching of Restorative Yoga. We begin by deepening our own experience of restorative yoga, by learning to gently let go, to deeply soften and allow the earth and gravity to open us to our natural energy flow.
Restorative yoga is now a key component in many yoga classes. Learn how to teach restorative yoga and integrate restorative poses into your classes.
