The (Add-on) Restorative Yoga Teacher Training Camp-in-a-Box – Level 1 [ONLINE] focuses on the continued instruction and development of five core categories for a Yoga Teacher Training course: Yoga Technique, Training, and Practice, Teaching Methodology, Anatomy, and Physiology, Yogic Philosophy, Ethics, and Lifestyle, as well as Practicum. With a focus on these categories, you will analyze textbooks and watch videos, as well as complete outside research, for full immersion learning. This course starts by explaining what Restorative Yoga is and how it differs from other Yoga styles. You will then move onto how Restorative Yoga ties into Yogic Philosophy and will review topics such as teaching methodology, pranayama, and relaxation techniques. The asanas are also covered with a focus on how to practice them in a Restorative Yoga setting, as well as developing a deeper understanding of anatomy and helping students with limited ranges of motion through modifications and props use. You will also further your understanding of prop use, proper alignment, how each muscle is used, how slight alterations of a pose can enhance or reduce effectiveness, safety precautions, and how the spine, breathing, and body position are all fundamentally linked. The resources in this course also assist in teaching students how to create and implement their own Restorative Yoga lesson plans. In this way, students learn effective teaching methods and how to engage their students to help them through the discovery and benefits that Restorative Yoga promises for the mind, body and spirit. Students are asked to engage in physical activity and to demonstrate their abilities as a Restorative Yoga instructor, while also using the resources provided to supplement their learning.
The purpose and goal of this course is to instruct you on the proper practice of Restorative Yoga, and help you learn to facilitate classes knowledgeably and creatively, while also keeping the safety and security of your students as the top priority. You will develop an understanding of Restorative Yoga practices and methodologies, as well as understand how to create Lesson Plans and facilitate them. You will also use outside resources to research Yoga topics to ensure a full understanding of the materials and find additional resources to enhance your abilities.
Upon successful completion of this course the student should be able to:
- Understand the anatomy of the human body in regard to how Yoga affects us.
- Learn how different asanas, through modifications and prop use, affect the body, mind, and spirit.
- Reaffirm your understanding of the metaphysical system of the Chakras.
- Rediscover Yogic Philosophy and how its origins affect practice today.
- Evaluate the impact and benefits Yoga can provide.
- Understand the role of meditation and concentration in a Restorative Yoga class.
- Create an understanding and ability to implement and demonstrate Yoga philosophies and practices.
- Examine and synthesize information from alternative sources to continue and expand on the study of Yoga.
- Analyze Yoga techniques and methodology through the Restorative Yoga style, to develop lesson plans that are coordinated and flow for students physically and mentally.
