All Levels, Teacher Training
Andrea Peloso - TH1PEL
This six-hour training will introduce students and teachers to favourite, classical restoratives with attention to detail, propping, special techniques for injuries, as well as modifications for "prop low" settings. In this training you will learn one 60-minute Restorative yoga class, understand poses and set ups, philosophy, physiology and sequencing. An understanding of the parasympathetic nervous system and how it is cued and aided in various postures will be discussed. You will work both alone and in partner settings to gain new sensitivities to observation, cueing them as to when students are well propped and rested. You will practice deep restoratives, learn how to teach them and gain a new experience as to how deep they truly can let go in Restorative practice. You can choose to purchase a certificate of attendance for this immersion; however, this workshop does not denote you as a "certified Restorative Teacher" upon completion. It is an immersion training.

Andrea Peloso - SU3PEL
Backbends are generally overdone in the yoga world, with the wrong part of the back squashed rather than the important areas challenged to gently open. This is true from beginner to advanced levels. The result is that backbends feel confusing or uncomfortable and we have to do a counter pose right away to make our back feel better. Come out and learn about the biomechanics of your spine and back-bending techniques that will actually make your back feel fantastic and liberate your spine.
