Restorative Yoga + Yoga for Clients with Physical Limitations and Injury Rehabilitation
50 Hours – October + November 2021
Even the strongest yogi needs a balance! This 50 Hour course was created to teach restorative yoga and to fulfill the unique needs of our yoga practitioner population. Our primary focus is on Restorative Yoga for the able-bodied with a secondary focus on how to include those with physical limitations and injury rehabilitations into our able-bodied class. The learning objective is to feel confident in welcoming all students into a restorative class and having something to offer everyone in a regular Hatha class to make them feel better when they leave the room. Take one module or BOTH!
