Docentenopleiding restorative yoga
Restorative Yoga and meditation Teacher Training
Fundamentals I + II + III (IV in 2017)
Restorative Yin yoga docentenopleiding
If you are a Yoga teacher, doing a teacher training or a yoga student and willing to dive deeper into the understanding of yourself with the intention of restoring and resetting your life, this might be something for you. Restoritive Yoga, because of its passive nature prepares the body-mind system for Meditation. We learn to listen tot he body surrendering to a pose, accepting the moment as it is. It is a Yin (feminine/passive) form called the ´yoga of being´opposite and yet balancing the Yang (masculine/active) practice. Restoritive Yoga is an oasis in our active life style as it works mainly on the nervous system bringing calm, relaxation, and clarity to make decisions and act. This training wil provide for you new tools to take onto your own practice and into every day life. It is an in-depth learning for a life in a higher vibration with awareness, acceptance of oneself, others and care for the planet Earth.
