Relax and Renew® Level 2: Therapeutic Applications of Restorative Yoga

 

Those who teach restorative yoga frequently discover the amazing power of this practice. Building on the basics you learned in Relax and Renew Level 1, this 25-hour Judith Hanson Lasater Relax and Renew Level 2 restorative yoga training will cover the more complex and therapeutic aspects of teaching restorative yoga. This workshop at Yoga Tree Potrero in San Francisco will include a section focusing on the therapeutic aspects of inversions. We will also work with poses that may benefit anxiety, depression, infertility, dysmennorrhea and other conditions. In addition, Roger Cole, Ph.D. and yoga teacher, will present for two hours on the physiology of relaxation.
