Foundations of Restorative Yoga

Saturday, July 21 · 12:30 pm — 3:30 pm with Surya Devi (Janina) Edwards and Datri Zick

Restorative Yoga is a blissful style that may benefit all practitioners, creating balance in their asana practice. It uses props such as blankets, pillows and bolsters to support the body in restful poses that are held for longer periods of time. It is particularly beneficial to those who are coping with physical or emotional trauma. This three-hour exploration of Restorative Yoga will be a deeply calming session that will leave you feeling spiritually rejuvenated and physically loose and open. Aspiring teachers will leave with the knowledge of how to lead their students into at least five restorative poses for use at the end of a regular asana practice or a class devoted to Restorative Yoga. In addition, you will learn the principles and philosophy behind Restorative Yoga to enhance your enjoyment of, and benefits from, the practice.

Both Datrii and Surya Devi teach Restorative Yoga weekly at Kashi Atlanta Ashram. Surya Devi has successfully completed the Relax & Renew© certification training, Level 1 with Judith Lasater, and will complete her Level 2 training in August. Ms. Lasater was a student of B.K.S. Iyengar and her Restorative Yoga techniques spring from that lineage of yoga.

Please bring a head pillow and a blanket to class.
