Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th January – Melbourne
Restorative yoga is the balance we need to our increasingly busy lives. It is a sequence of gentle and supported postures – often held for several minutes. In this deeply nourishing practice, the goal is to feel weightless and yet sinking into the comfort of the earth. During the practice we can focus the mind on stillness and connection with the breath.
The IYTA has a two-day course facilitated by senior yoga teacher Katie Brown where you will learn a variety of postures, how best to use props such as bolsters, blankets and blocks to support all body types. You will also learn linking movements, sequencing, breathing techniques and meditation practices.
The course will be held in Melbourne at: Green Monday Studios, 73 Grattan St, Carlton VIC 3053
Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th January- Melbourne
Each day will start at 9am and finish at 5:00pm.
What does the weekend involve?
There will be some discussion/lecture-based learning but the majority of the sessions will be practical.
Practical work will be deeply relaxing. There will also be some sessions where students on the certificate will have the opportunity for some teaching practice with constructive feedback. This again is optional.
Who is this for?
Basically, it’s for everyone! All levels of fitness, ages and ability.
But you have two options:
Certificate of Attendance: attending the weekend as a student and enjoying two days of restorative yoga postures and practices which will be extremely beneficial for the mind and body. This will give you 14 CPD points.
Certificate of Completion: This involves some pre-learning (online lecture and reading) and an assessment paper to be handed in within 14 days of attending the course. The Certificate of Completion is suitable for yoga teachers and will enable you to incorporate restorative yoga postures within a general class and/or to teach a restorative yoga class. This will give you 25 CPD points.
The Certificate of Completion is an additional $100 to cover marking and admin costs. If you sign up for Attendance and change your mind and would like to complete the assessment, this can be arranged.
Please note there is a required reading textbook that will need to be purchased for this course at an additional cost.
