The Restorative Teacher Training is a multi-faceted and rich exploration to inform the personal study as well as teaching skills of each student. Students and teachers of yoga will learn the joys of Restorative through first-hand experience of the postures, and will also learn hands on experience in how to teach students of all levels.
Non yoga instructors who are interested in restorative yoga either to inform their own health and wellness or to inform their line of work are welcome to attend. The training is a rich resource for anyone seeking to expand their knowledge of their own health and looking into non invasive, gentle, affordable, but powerful tools for healing.
“Andrea Peloso is a dedicated teacher who I trust to offer excellent instruction. She cares deeply for yoga students and the practice of yoga.”

The Restorative Teacher Training is a multi-faceted and rich exploration to inform the personal study as well as teaching skills of each student. Students will learn the joys of Restorative through first-hand experience of the postures, and will also learn hands on experience in how to teach students of all levels.
Understanding the scientific reality of the human nervous system and how it affects the body will help students to compose classes which are effective for deep and long lasting healing rather than simply relaxing experiences for students.
The art of reading bodies, and communication with students is essential to a well propped restorative pose. Students will gain hands on practice in understanding how each pose relates to different bodies, as well as classical alignment that enables the student to rest more deeply.
A comprehensive repertoire of postures will be passed on to students with the detail necessary to bring depth and life changing benefits to students.
Teaching methodology as a result of personal practice and right relationship with ourselves and others will be explored throughout the training. As follows deepening our compassion as well as our ability to communicate will be a theme throughout the course.
In addition to yoga instructors, those who have attended the restorative training in the past are massage therapists, teachers or students seeking insight into their own health conditions, police officers, patrol agents, acupuncturists, social workers, chaplains, nurses, pharmacists, nurse practitioners,
In the context of this course we will be studying the science of the nervous system as well as traditional wisdom and many different postures in different variations. We will be exploring the nuance and complexities of creating safer spaces for ourselves and others and creating a platform for deep experiences in the postures, beginning with ourselves.
