Restoring the Body to Balance - Yoga Teacher Training

Wednesday, February 5, 2020 Yoga Teacher Training

The repetition of everyday life in both physical and nonphysical ways can send
our bodies out of alignment. Active people create imbalances in their bodies from
over use, and inactive people create imbalances from years of not using certain
areas of their body. Regardless of whether our limitations are created by an
active or inactive lifestyle, both imbalances create tension and stiffness in the
body, which can eventually lead to injury. Restorative yoga is an accessible
practice for all and is used as a tool to "restore" the body back to balance.

What is Restorative Yoga?
Restorative yoga is a deeply relaxing style of yoga. It is a receptive practice
rather than an active practice. You are completely supported in a shape to
receive the benefits, through props.

Because it is such a supportive practice, restorative yoga is accessible to
everyone, especially those with limitations or injuries.
