Restorative Yoga Teacher Training

Thursday 23rd, Friday 24th, Saturday 25th July 12.00-6.00pm.

A three-day training for teachers and serious students.

Learn to teach Restorative Yoga to groups and individuals competently and compassionately. You will understand the important therapeutic applications of restorative yoga and why it is an essential component of a well-rounded yoga practice. Restorative yoga is a powerful practice that transforms stress, regulates emotional imbalances, improves immune function, digestive function, memory and fertility.

On this training there will be plenty of practical sessions of restorative yoga combined with theoretical understanding of the latest findings in neuroscience and recent medical studies, which validate the ancient teachings of yoga, meditation and mindfulness to reveal the enormous physical and emotional benefits of restorative yoga.

Ciara holds a Masters Degree in Mindfulness-based Psychotherapy. She is Director of the YogaRoom teacher trainings. She is in private practice as a psychotherapist and has taught therapists and counsellors internationally on the therapeutic applications of mindflness and yoga.

An ERYT500, her restorative yoga combines her experience of meditation and mindfuless and draws from Judith Hason Lasater and the Iyengar tradition, as well as restorative yoga teacher trainings she attended with Sudha Carolyn Lundeen from the Kripalu institute and Yin yoga with Sarah Powers.

In light of current regulations we will be restricting the numbers present in the studio to ten. We are very lucky to have a bright, airy and spacious yoga studio, overlooking a large garden area, where we can accommodate a group of this size comfortably, two metres apart. (We used to have up to 30 people in our studio!) This will ensure a safe and special environment for this training.
