Restorative Yoga Teacher Training: The Art of Presence @ YAM


Restorative Yoga Teacher Training: The Art of Presence

September 6-8, 2019

In a culture where “more” is glorified, “more” poses, “more” skills, “more” distraction…restorative yoga is the art of learning to do, seek, and require less to feel whole. Less to connect with who you are. It’s profoundly simple, and the beauty of it is you already have all the tools you need, they just need to be cultivated to grow!

The skill of teaching Restorative Yoga must begin with the embodied practice of Restorative Yoga. In this immersive training you will learn to establish a practice of presence…a solid foundation from which to teach.
