restorative yoga therapeutics

restoRestorative Yoga rejuvenates the whole body, mind and nervous system. BKS Iyengar, who was the Father of traditional restorative yoga often said, “Health is not a commodity to be bargained for. It has to be earned”. Our health is earned through addressing every part of the body – every organ every bone- every muscle – and every cell of the body.

Traditional Restorative Yoga looks to use the placement of props therapeutically to support the body in all positions. Restorative Yoga has a strong backing of scientific evidence that has widened its growing popularity. It is suitable to all people of all ages and is a wonderful way to guide anyone into yoga. It is an imperative teaching tool for both personalised therapeutic sessions and class scenarios.

Restorative Yoga offers us all a deep experience of meditative asana – the sacred opportunity to witness ourselves from within. The long and uninterrupted practice of asanas practised with meditative awareness brings us complete mental freedom and heightened personal power.

This course will focus not only be on the how of the postures, but also the why and when; The physiology and therapeutic applications for specific sequences, postures, and supporting techniques. This is a holistic approach to restorative yoga like no other.
