Restorative Yoga, through long-held, prop supported postures, teaches that even though a pose appears to be still, there is a subtler action going on that involves a symphony of breath and body that brings the entire being into a state of deep repose and release. 

Somatic Restorative Yoga marries slow purposeful somatic moment with long-held prop supported postures. Soma (living aware) or somatics is the awakened awareness of the body within movement. 
The difference between restoration and somatics is sensing through stillness versus sensing through movement.
 
Two immersions, held back to back May 1-6, Friday to Wednesday. While they are designed to build upon each other, they can be taken separately. If you're only taking one, take the Restorative Yoga Immersion first. If time and budget allow, both are stepping stones to a discerning practice and greater depth of knowledge.
Recognizing these are challenging times, I'm offering various pricing options and menus for the course that may suit your needs. I've also revamped this course for online to make it experiential (lots of time in the poses), efficient, and engaging. Complete manuals for both courses are included. For teachers: 30+ Yoga Alliance credits. 
 
Bonuses: Extra pre-recorded sessions that show how to add in restorative with a "regular" yoga class, additional live Q&A post immersion, private sessions, and more.

Restorative Yoga Immersion

Restorative Yoga are long-held adaptations of traditional yoga postures passively supported by props. It is the art of being rather than doing. A restorative practice is learning to regulate the nervous system to compliment the body’s natural healing process and need for rest. 

This course is open to all who would like to deepen their yoga practice whether you plan to teach a restorative class or not. So much can be gained with the understanding of the adaptations of traditional yoga poses with the utilization of props. With support, energy is received, tension is released, circulation is improved without the need to expend great energy. 

The Benefits of a Restorative Yoga Class Include: 
- Powerful relaxation to access a state of pratayahara (a withdrawn state).
- Restoration and exploration of the mind, body and soul in passive postures.
- Energy flow and healing with utilization of props as supportive tools.
- Clarity, connection, and a spirit of offering through ishvara pranidhana (the divine within). 
- Using the poses to create a safe container for regulating the systems of the body.

Somatic Restorative Yoga Immersion

 

Somatic Restorative Yoga partners slow purposeful somatic moment before and after long-held prop supported postures. Soma (living aware) or somatics is the awakened awareness of the body within movement. The somatic movements mirror our developmental movement patterns and will prepare the body for rest in the restorative pose and specification to individuals and special population needs will be addressed. We will explore the systems of the body including the endocrine and nervous system within a restorative and soma movement framework. 
This course is open to all who would like to deepen their yoga practice whether you plan to teach a somatic restorative class or not. So much can be gained with the understanding of the adaptations of traditional yoga poses with the utilization of props. With support, energy is received, tension is released, circulation is improved without the need to expend great energy.
WHAT TO EXPECT
We will begin the day with a short discussion of a restful pose, somatic (moving within) movements, breath work, a unique restorative sequence and finish with an extended savasana relaxation. The somatic movements between the postures will help facilitate a soma or “living aware” experience by awakening awareness of the body within. These movements will complement the supported poses by silencing overworked areas. In the afternoons, we'll investigate the principals of interoception (feeling within) and somatic exploration and finish with another restful class applying what we've learned that day.
