Restorative Yoga for Emotional Stability Teacher Training
Facilitator: Cora Wen
October 2nd - 4th (Friday Evening, Saturday & Sunday)
Restorative Yoga is a practice that has a special ability to leave us feeling deeply nourished and rested. It is an exploration of the art of relaxation through creating poses with props to help guide us towards activating our sympathetic nervous system or the body’s relaxation response. This intelligent and accessible style of yoga is rooted in the Iyengar yoga tradition and has become a practice being studied by many universities for its therapeutic benefits. In this special intensive, we will explore how Restorative Yoga can be used to support our emotional health. Modern day stress is quickly becoming an epidemic health issue which greatly impacts our physical, mental and emotional wellness. A Restorative Yoga practice can help support managing emotions such as anxiety, depression or the experience of grief. This workshop will focus on educating the practitioner/teacher on Eastern & Western views of each emotion, how emotional states present in the physical/subtle bodies & how to use props to enhance poses that may be supportive for each emotional state.
