What is the course about?

The programme begins with quiet, supported postures that bring relief to your breathing and follows through with postures that strengthen the immune system. It ends with a choice of relaxation positions.

We use the restorative yoga postures to relax and restore by putting the body in a comfortable position supported with various yoga props. We direct our attention to the breath giving our system a wonderful opportunity to deeply rest, restore and recover.

Everyone’s ability and needs are different and not every posture will be suitable for all. Therefore, we provide modified versions. Additional postures may be added to provide a practice tailored to your personal needs.

This is in-person course.

What will we cover?

Supported prone poses
Breath observation

Supported seated poses
Supine (lying down) poses
