Anjali Restorative Yoga is a highly regarded, deep, and nurturing style of yoga. Through this thoughtful practice of intentional rest, the body is supported by bolsters, pillows, and blankets. The mind and breath are guided through gentle images and practices. The effect is profoundly restful and serene.
The physiological effects of the practice are remarkable: increased lung capacity, improved circulation, spinal flexibility, and significant reduction in various stress related and chronic fatigue symptoms. By providing the body with the freedom to intentionally rest, one is able to tap into one’s own innate healing wisdom. On so many levels, one learns the practice of resting into wellness.
By exploring these practices from a teacher’s perspective, you hone your teaching service skills verbally, creatively, and inspirationally. The focus of the training is not simply to memorize a set sequence of asanas, but rather to deepen your personal knowledge of the subtle sensations that arise in your own practice and direct the challenges into actions and poetic vocabulary that can inspire ease in another.
