"Restorative Yoga is a Relaxation practice for Conscious Deep Rest.
Rest is not self-indulgence, Rest is not optional;
Rest is self-preservation, Rest is respect for life."
Why do we practice Restorative Yoga?
To support health and vitality, an antidote to stress
To replenish moments of depletion and fatigue at every level
To restore mental clarity and resilience
To reconnect to our innate true nature
To live with capacity for greater awareness and equanimity
To offer the best version of ourselves to the world
Come and learn the science and art of Restorative Yoga, the skills to practice active relaxation. This immersion supports ample space and time for learning, reflection and integration. Whether your intention is to deepen personal understanding of restorative practices, or to offer it to family / friends, or to teach and share this healing practice, there will be comprehensive coverage of both the theoretical and practical application of restorative yoga.

"This course was exceptional. The level of detail and knowledge was outstanding. The structure and delivery was very well thought out. There was depth and substance in terms of facilitating a well-rounded learning experience for students. There was a perfect balance between a humanistic, person-centred developmental learning experience and the experience of building on knowledge, learning new skills and refining our craft as a Restorative yoga teacher. Adelene is an exceptional teacher and a beautiful person. I am deeply grateful and will attend more of her trainings. " - Past participant on training
