Restorative Practices Workshop

In this workshop, we will explore restorative backbends, which can be tricky for many practitioners, especially in multi-level restorative classes where we have skilled practitioners alongside new students, alongside practitioners with chronic health conditions and physical limitations.
We will study the structure (anatomy) in order to understand what is happening in backbends and how to find the right prop set-up for all bodies. We will also focus on creating rituals as a teacher that offer up a sacred space to facilitate deep rest, even when you are teaching in the most mundane of places.
This workshop is a great combination of deepening your personal practice by experiencing the effects of the asanas firsthand as well as learning techniques so you can facilitate restoration and deep rest more effectively.
April 13, 10am – 4:30pm with a 90 minute lunch break from 12:30-2pm. Contact Jenn for more details. $75; 5 contact hours YACEP
