Restorative Yoga Teacher Training Level 1 – Foundations

"Take a rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop. "     -    Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)

Do you feel that you're trying to find a balance but your scale is often tipped to the stress side? Do you feel like you are a ticking time-bomb ready to go off any minute? Do you feel like you are running on empty or have been through a traumatic event?

There are several techniques and levels of relaxation and many studies documented on the effects of relaxation in the body.  Many of us walk around with unconscious stress in our shoulders, belly, back or other part of the body, not aware of the degrees to which these areas are tense.  Most of us cannot complete our daily to-do tasks and are often overburdened will responsibilities of family, work and life.

If you feel any or all of the above, then this training is for you.  Learn everything you need to know about the grounding and inherently restful practice of Restorative Yoga.  This training can be undertaken by yoga teachers, physical therapists, body workers, nurses, or anyone interested to incorporate restorative yoga into their person lives.

I recently completed my Restorative Yoga Teacher Training with Pritpal Singh @ Mind To Body Yoga & Fitness. I highly recommend this studio to anyone who may be interested in yoga certifications, upgrading courses or to simply enjoy the practice & benefits of yoga. The studio itself is very clean, calming & roomy; any props required are available for use for free. Pritpal was an amazing teacher; she is knowledgeable, interesting, witty, kind & patient. Her warm manner was infectious! Her demonstrations & notes were easy to follow & understand. Originally, I dreaded spending an entire weekend in class but, to my surprise, the training was so enjoyable & interesting that it seemed to be over in the blink of an eye & I ended up wishing it lasted longer! Many thanks for your exceptional guidance Pritpal!
