  • what supports trauma-informed, consent-based, healing touch (and what undermines it)
  • sustainable body mechanics & energetic awareness to take care of yourself while taking care of others
  • specific assists applicable to restorative yoga postures that help students sink into bliss

No previous bodywork experience required, but participants must have some previous exposure to restorative yoga postures. Workshop participants will have the opportunity in the future to assist Alex's Radically Restorative Yoga workshops at JPCY.

- Provide verbal cues that support physical alignment as well as mental, emotional, and nervous system processes
- Practice consent-based hands-on assists to support students in restorative postures
- Create safe space by modeling radical acceptance, trauma-informed ethos, and inclusive teaching for every body
- Intentionally tailor restorative yoga experiences to 1-on-1 private sessions as well as group classes

This training is for anyone looking to provide restorative yoga experiences to individual clients or groups of students. A previous YTT 200 is helpful but not required, as the elements of this training can be applied to all kinds of healing professions.
