RELAX & RESTORE: A LEVEL 1 RESTORATIVE YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
WITH ADELENE CHEONG
15-19 JANUARY 2024, YOGARISE PECKHAM
To ‘rest’, to ‘relax’ and to ‘restore’ is a natural vital process in our lives. Rest supports optimal physiological functioning, and promotes healing and growth. During rest, one’s autonomic nervous system switches from sympathetic dominance to parasympathetic dominance, and regeneration and restoration are accelerated. Research has shown that relaxation and rest are essential to everyone of all ages and cultures, sizes and shape.
Yogarise is delighted to welcome SYT Adelene Cheong to Peckham for his very special training.
WHY DO WE PRACTICE RESTORATIVE YOGA?
To support health and vitality, an antidote to stress
To replenish moments of depletion and fatigue at every level
To restore mental clarity and resilience
To reconnect to our innate true nature
To live with the capacity for greater awareness and equanimity
To offer the best version of ourselves to the world
This course will:
Deepen your understanding of what it means to truly relax: Active relaxation, and why it is so important.
Examine different restorative poses, approaches and techniques and understand the emotional aspects and psychology of each pose.
Provide you with the tools to develop your own voice as a Restorative yoga teacher, either stand-alone or as part of your general yoga classes or other suitable modalities.
