Rest Well: The Art & Science of True Rejuvenation

Restorative Yoga Teacher Training

Friday, June 1st 6-8:30pm
Saturday, June 2nd 9-5pm
Sunday, June 3rd 9-3:30pm
Heartspace Yoga

Whether we wish to admit it or not, overstimulation, anxiety, exhaustion and their attendant symptoms are a toxic pandemic in our society. Individuals have supplanted restful leisure time with an ever expanding to do list and the ‘off’ button seems further out of reach. This systemic depletion sabotages our health and desire to thrive. The drive to do and be more cannot be supported unless we understand and engage in activities that deeply relax and nourish our depleted minds and bodies.  

Enter Restorative Yoga: a compendium of practices that can provide just what we need to feed, cherish, revivify and rejuvenate, but done haphazardly or without a deep understanding, its effectiveness is diminished. Yoga Vidya offers a carefully researched, comprehensive program that examines not just the ‘how’, but the ‘why’ of this deeply rejuvenative branch of hatha yoga. If you are a teacher, therapist or health worker who wishes to serve in a more healing and profound way, or if you just want to learn more about how to serve yourself, this program is for you!

  • The Science of Relaxation and Restoration
