Through this training, we’ll also discover how to sense into the depths of our own postures and practices. As a result, we’ll be able to offer more nuanced guidance and support through cues that address the physical, energetic, and mental body—inviting students to welcome a greater sense of well-being and wholeness. Upon completion, you’ll be able to create, guide, and practice a customized Restorative Yoga + Slow Flow Yoga practice for yourself and others.

We’ll also talk about how to adapt and evolve when teaching yoga online.
