Soften, Nourish and Support: Restorative Yoga in Community 

***This weekend intensive counts as 14 hours towards the Laughing River Yoga 300 Hour Teacher Training Program. 


“Rest on a somatic level is a small resurrection.” - Tricia Hersey, Rest is Resistance: A Manifesto, p. 182


Restorative yoga is sometimes defined as “active relaxation” as it invites practitioners to choose rest in a conscious state. This slow and intentional practice uses props to encourage softness in the physical body, nourishes the nervous system, and supports deep rest and stress relief.


In a society that emphasizes productivity and material wealth over healthy bodies and minds, resting actively can seem antithetical to our culture. Practicing Restorative Yoga in community allows a container for those who seek this gentle support in their life.


The intensive will begin with a 75 minute practice Friday night followed by in depth posture clinics on Saturday and Sunday. Students will practice how to use many props to support physical ease and work in partners to learn how to customize poses for different bodies. Through the weekend practitioners will learn techniques to find softness in their own bodies, nourish their personal practice, and learn to support not only themselves but how to share this gentle yoga practice with others.


This weekend intensive will allow students and teachers of any level a deep dive into Restorative Yoga practice.


This weekend intensive will be held in-person at the Chace Mill: 

Friday 6-8 p.m.
Saturday 12-6 p.m.
Sunday 10:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

October 18-20, 2024
