Finding Silence
18-hour Restorative Yoga Training
with Lizzie Lasater

June 2 – 4, 2023

~ Make it a 50-hour training with 32 additional hours online ~

Restorative yoga is not about stretching.
It’s about opening.
To the breath,
Into my interior landscape,
To the feelings I’m ignoring,
To silence,
And to this moment.

In Restorative yoga we reduce the amount of stimulation to the nervous system, so you can increase your interoceptive awareness, train your ability to focus, re-connect with your intuition, and ultimately live a more joyful life.

In a culture obsessed with acceleration, Restorative yoga helps us discover the joy of going slow, paying attention, and being still. When we do, we give our bodies time for nourishing relaxation and holistic healing to occur. It is a radical practice of deep rest and listening to the rhythm of our own hearts.

This teacher training is a targeted look at the theory, alignment, sequencing, and energetics of Restorative yoga. Learning to teach Restorative yoga is, first and foremost, about learning to practice Restorative yoga. Minimalist in spirit, much of this work is in fact about less: less music, less talking, less distraction, fewer poses. It’s all in the service of giving ourselves time to rediscover a rich interior landscape.

In this training you will learn to:
– Invite more space, stillness, and silence into your own body.
– Reconnect with your innate ability to relax and to heal.
– Support your students finding silence in the midst of our cacophonous culture.
– Teach supported inversions – advanced poses for quieting the mind.
