Learn to teach the Restorative Yoga practices including Yoga Nidra and Mindfulness
This Course is Appropriate for:
Qualified yoga teachers, trainee yoga teachers, aspiring yoga teachers (although please be aware that you won’t be able to teach Restorative Yoga until you have your 200 hour qualification).
Also for massage therapists, physiotherapists, body workers, counselors… in fact, anyone who works with minds and bodies, and who would like to deepen their understanding of the nervous system, the importance of rest, and the mind-body connection.
And anyone who would like to learn to rest; whether this is to practice rest and relaxation at home, or to encourage friends and family to indulge in rest. In this day and age, stress is so common. It’s more likely that we’ll be on the go, planning what’s next and trying to fit everything in. The practice of Restorative Yoga helps to counter-balance this; to encourage us to activate the ‘rest and digest’ response. This helps us find clarity, peace, creativity and rest.
This training will take place at Yoga Hero, based in a beautiful part of Leeds .

Leeds Dock is a 10 minute walk from Leeds Train Station
There is free parking for two hours all around the dock, and there’s a multistorey car park signposted, view the website here >
There are many very reasonably priced AirBnBs on the Dock
Leeds is a quite small city with loads going on. The whole city is walkable by foot, probably 40 minutes’ walk from one end to the other at a steady pace. There’s many independent restaurants and cafes, with our favourite North Star Coffee Shop just two doors down from the studio, serving incredible coffee and food during the day.
