Subtle Art & Science of Restorative Yoga Offer

Join Sam Akers for her signature Restorative Yoga training. Restorative yoga is a truly sacred and magical practice and yet, it seems so often, teachers are given very little specialty training in how to offer support and comfort to students. Restorative yoga not only works on relaxing the fascia and muscles but allows for down regulation of the nervous system, during these often intense times of stress. In this training, Sam will help train you to develop your eyes to see where and how the body as well as the joints can be supported with props, correct alignment in asana and why including mindfulness, breath practices and metta (loving kindness) phrases are valuable anchors for those with trauma (and without!) Trainees learn sequencing for anxiety and depression, for morning and evening restorative and special conditions. Restorative yoga is a work of art through tenderness, attention and kindness.
