Are you a yoga teacher who would like to bring some quieter more nourishing offerings to your yoga community? Or are you a sincere seeker – a yoga practitioner looking to take your practice to a deeper and more reflective place? Join me for The Art of Rest by Katie Welsh® - Restorative Yoga and explore this rejuvenating practice that replenishes and heals the body through the parasympathetic nervous system.

Burnout is on the rise around the world, and in Australia. Doing more is a feature of modern society. Mental health issues abound. The need for rest has never been greater, and this is being seen by increasing demand for quieter yoga classes.

The Art of Rest by Katie Welsh® - Restorative Yoga will bring you an understanding of restorative yoga from a historical, theoretical and practical perspective, allowing you to be able to serve the need of the community.

This program includes:
• An understanding of the traditional perspective of what yoga is – both the state of yoga and the practice of yoga
• Delving into what restorative yoga is and how it can help you discover the state of yoga. You will also understand the differences between restorative yoga and yin yoga
• Considerations of why people need rest practices in the modern world
• A brief history of the tapestry of yoga, including when more physical practices emerged, including restorative yoga. This will include consideration of the history and philosophy of rest
• An overview of recent research on the benefits of restorative yoga practices
• Looking at restorative yoga from the perspective of our physical, mental, energetic and spiritual bodies
• Learning to teach 25 restorative yoga āsanas, including the use of yoga props, and understanding variations for all bodies
• A deeper understanding of some of the ancient practices such as sankalpa, prāṇayama, mudras, and the concept of silence that can complement your restorative yoga practices
• The art of holding restful space and creating an experience for your students, and
• An opportunity to be involved in post-training mentoring with Katie Welsh as you shape your offerings.
