Advanced Restorative Yoga Training
with Anne Wanda Tessier
Friday, September 21 to Sunday, September 23, 2018

Explore Restorative Yoga beyond the basics!

This advanced restorative yoga training is for experienced restorative yoga teachers and students who would like to expand their knowledge of the therapeutic benefits of this practice as well as explore various new poses not covered in basic restorative yoga training.

Those who have taught Restorative Yoga understand the importance of this yoga practice on the body, mind, the health of the organs and the nervous system.


In this 20-hour training, we will review a few basic poses and cover more complex poses such as inversions, shoulder stands, back bends, forward folds, saddle pose, as well as new variations of savasana.

We will explore poses that benefit insomnia, anxiety, depression, infertility as well as other health conditions and also gain knowledge on the physiology of relaxation.

Students will have the opportunity to practice each pose, explore how to use props to fully support the body (including variations depending on health conditions).

We will learn breathing techniques (pranayama) to elicit the relaxation response as well as explore how to sequence an advanced restorative yoga class and practice teaching.
