A studio experience brought to you online

Restorative yoga is a practice that brings you back to balance and creates the space for your body to relax and rejuvenate. This practice may regulate your nervous system, mitigate stress in your life, and build spiritual muscles.

In YogaRenew’s Restorative Yoga Training, you will learn to expertly set up restorative yoga poses for yourself and other people, what poses are most beneficial for particular situations, how to use props skillfully to support practitioners at all levels, and when to adapt and modify poses. By the end of the training you will have the knowledge and tools you need to establish a personal restorative yoga practice, as well as sequence and teach restorative yoga.

Not at all. The restorative yoga practice can be modified to support bodies of all types and people with different injuries. Just make sure you consult your doctor before practicing.
