The Method of Restorative Yoga, 20 hour Teacher Training by Monica Angelatos and Natasha Lenon is a multi-faceted and rich exploration that informs a personal study. This training provides invaluable teaching tools for yoga teachers. 

 

This training will allow you to experience the joys and benefits of a Restorative practice through a first-hand experience of the postures. You will learn hands-on adjustments and how to teach students of all levels and, sizes and with any types of limitations. You will deepen your level of compassion as well as our ability to communicate, while gaining the confidence to safely touch and adjusting your students for maximum support. 

 

Through direct experience, practice teaching, and feedback, you’ll leave with the ability to confidently sequence your own class through a primary series of restorative poses. An Illustrated manual is provided to support this process.  Additionally, Monica and Natasha share three of their favourite restorative “go to” sequences which are effective for deep and long lasting healing; leaving your students feeling refreshed, clam, and with a deep sense of wellbeing.
