Restorative Yoga Training

(35-hour) with Adelene Cheong

To ‘rest’, to ‘relax’ and to ‘restore’ is a natural vital process in our lives. Rest supports optimal physiological functioning, and promotes healing and growth. During rest, one’s autonomic nervous system switches from sympathetic-dominance to parasympathetic-dominance, regeneration and restoration is accelerated. Research has shown that relaxation and rest is essential to everyone of all ages and culture, size and shape.

About the teacher

Adelene Cheong
A practitioner, a student, a teacher and trainer of yoga... Adelene feels blessed to be on this path with many who seek love, peace and stillness. Through yoga, Adelene reconnects to being truly integrated in life and all it has to offer. Having been diagnosed with a progressive S-curve scoliosis at age 13, some physical activities were limited within, and outside school. She was not very active in her growing up years, and experienced chronic back pain, which was possibly exacerbated by increasingly sedentary when she started college. When she was told that she may be confined to using a wheelchair should the condition deteriorate, and may have to be bed-ridden for the second half of pregnancy should she become pregnant, life ahead seemed bleak and painful. It was emotionally and mentally devastating.
