Are you ready to teach your clients to let go, feel supported, and reap the rewards of deep listening and relaxation, allowing for true healing and health? In her profound new 101 class, Jillian Pransky offers restorative yoga like you’ve never experienced it before. Join this teaching program for a deep dive into eight essential poses you need to help your clients elicit a relaxation response. In each section, Jillian weaves the fundamental themes of a restorative practice—grounding, making space, listening, and rejuvenation—into the coursework so you can begin naturally integrating these principles with your clients and on the mat. You’ll focus on simple prop setups to help encourage deep mind-body release and healing. Whether you are an avid practitioner, are new to restorative, or want to teach it effectively, this course will give you the tools to build a nourishing restorative practice.
