  • Learn how to structure and deliver effective classes

  • Take a dip into Yoga Nidra practice and it's relationship to Restorative Yoga practice

  • Connect with the roots of supported/propped practice in distant yoga history

  • Work in a small learning group - our trainings are restricted to a maximum of 20

My approach to Restorative Yoga is based on many years practice, teaching and training others in Restorative Yoga. I am inspired by the work of Judith Hanson Lasater, Donna Farhi, Roger Cole and Richard Miller, and my work with Linda Hartley and Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen. I draw strongly on the principles of embodied anatomy, somatic psychology and trauma-sensitivity throughout. My co-teacher Tiffany Thorne brings unique insights from yoga philosphy texts and her growing body of work in Embodied Sanskrit.

This course is provided by Barefoot Body Training and it's my desire that you come away from the training informed, equipped and inspired, and ready to maximise the potential of your time and financial investment.  We'd also like you to be as passionate about the practice as we are!
