Saturday 22nd April: 10am-5.15pm
Representing an integral and skilful part of teaching Restorative Yoga, ‘assisting’ a posture in a class can either make or break the experience. Whether it’s adjusting the set up of props or offering a physical assist, an adjustment represents an integrating action that supports natural movement and healthy alignment; it reinforces nervous system balance and the sense of wellbeing.
This Teachers’ Intensive offers a safe learning environment for teachers and trainees within which to refine teaching skills specifically as it relates to Restorative Yoga and the art of assisting. Whether you are new to Restorative Yoga or have previously taken a Restorative training, this day offers insight and learning on how to offer an assist in the most appropriate way. And sometimes this means not offering a physical assist at all.
Come and join the community of teachers to practise and learn more about this unique style of practising yoga, why it’s important, and refine your ability to assist your students in the most respectful way. The day includes:
- Restorative practice;
- Contemplation and dialogue with regards to the art of assisting;
- Teachers’ ‘practicum’ exploring different ways to assist the postures as well as adapting set-ups to suit individual needs;
- Handout and access to a 25% discount on Anna’s book, “Restorative Yoga: Power Presence Practice for Teachers and Trainees,” 10% discount on Anna Ashby x Yogamatters Restorative Kits, as well as future discounts on Teachers’ Intensives and Restorative Trainings in 2023 with Anna.
This workshops counts towards 6 hours of ongoing professional development for both Yoga Alliance in the U.S. and Yoga Alliance Professionals in the U.K.
For teachers and trainees – does not require Restorative training. Serves as a taster for future Restorative teacher training, and as a refresher for graduates of a Restorative training or simply a deepening of the art of assisting.
