An urban retreat experience in which to learn about Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra whilst reaping all the benefits of these healing and nourishing practices.
This Course is Appropriate for:
Qualified yoga teachers, trainee yoga teachers, aspiring yoga teachers.
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, including those who are keen to practice stillness and relaxation at home, or to encourage friends and family to do so.
Stress, Anxiety and Depression are so prevalent in our society, particularly in the current climate of uncertainty, and often as a consequence of our culture of being bombarded by reasons to fill our time with activities and external stimulation that is neither nourishing nor nurturing The practices of Restorative Yoga, Yoga Nidra and Mindfulness help to counter-balance this, guiding us towards clarity, peace and creativity, and ultimately more efficient use of our energy.
This training will take place online
Friday 20th-22nd November 2020
