Finding Silence: Restorative Yoga Workshop
& Teacher Training Level 1 and Level 2
with Lizzie Lasater
May 1st to 5th, 2019
*** Compatible with our 300-hour flexible Teacher Training ***
In Restorative yoga we discover the secret to going slow, paying attention, and being still. In Restorative yoga we practice deep rest and listen to the rhythm of our own hearts. In Restorative yoga we emphasize “being” rather than “doing.” Our bodies know how to relax. Our bodies know how to heal themselves. Restorative yoga is about giving our bodies time and creating the conditions for relaxation and healing to occur.
Lizzie Lasater believes that we are all already Buddhas, we just don’t know it yet. She learned yoga from her mother, Restorative yoga pioneer and Yoga Journal Magazine co-founder, Judith Hanson Lasater. Raised in San Francisco, Lizzie lives in the Alps with her Austrian husband.

Finding Silence Level 1: 15 hour Restorative Yoga Training
May 1st & 2nd 10h00 – 17h15
May 3rd 10h00 – 13h00
To teach Restorative yoga we must first learn to practice Restorative yoga. In this training you will learn straightforward techniques for teaching introversion and stillness. You will gain the ability to offer your students ways to soothe their overstimulated sympathetic nervous systems and find relief from the stress of their busy lives. Paradoxically, by giving your students the gift of intense rest, they will discover more energy for family, work and creativity.
Open to yoga teachers and serious students from all styles and levels. A certificate is available from Lizzie when you attend all sessions and complete a digital course and written project after the course.
Finding Silence Level 2: 15 hour Restorative Yoga Training
May 3rd 14h15 – 17h15
May 4th & 5th 10h00 – 17h15
In Level 1, our focus is on learning to practice Restorative yoga. In Level 2, the frame shifts to sharing this active relaxation with our students.
How can we best support our students to find silence in the midst of our cacophonous 21st century? How do we make space for the unseen inner work of yoga in a culture ever more mesmerized by materiality and consumerism? How can we personally integrate a profession about slowing down and giving our attention to spiritual growth into our accelerating lives?
This training is a targeted look at the theory, alignment, sequencing, and energetics of Restorative yoga. You will learn, for example, to teach supported inversions, the most advanced poses for quieting the brain, decreasing anxiety, boosting the immune system, and hormonal balance.
Students who have already completed a 15 hour Restorative Training with Lizzie Lasater can attend Level 2 of this training. A certificate is available from Lizzie when you attend all sessions and complete a digital course and written project.
