  • What would happen if–for one moment–you were able to regard your breath, body, and mind as complete, essential and enough?
  • You would be the embodiment of potential, ease, and grace.
  • You would be in the unique position of simultaneous deep surrender and full participation with the universe.
  • What if–you could teach this to others?

 

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.

Anjali Restorative Yoga Teacher Training

Cultivating the benefits of Anjali Restorative Yoga in oneself is genuine beauty; cultivating the benefits in others is a heartfelt service path. One of the most challenging aspects for all teachers is getting what is inside the heart, out of the mouth and into a classroom full of students.

Further a challenge to be met is finding time in the contemporary practitioner’s life for a regular Anjali Restorative practice. Often times, the modern student is easily swayed into more demanding styles to fill the “workout” need in a busy schedule. How to we turn our students on to the benefits of restorative yoga while simultaneously meeting their movement desires.
