Teaching Restorative Yoga: Revitalize and Rebalance


In our fast-paced Vinyasa yoga culture, are we missing out on one of the greatest gifts yoga has to offer? Renowned yoga teacher Judith Hanson Lasater thinks so.

Deep rest has become an absolute necessity in our lives. When we emphasize moving rapidly through a series of poses, it is easy to miss out on the element of deep rest that yoga has to offer. Restorative yoga is a perfect strategy for that.

The practice of restorative yoga allows us to deeply nourish and regenerate the tissues and systems of our bodies. The constant pressure of day-to-day stressors can leave us feeling depleted, tense or even in a state that is simultaneously exhausted and wired. By settling the body into profound rest through this practice of yoga, we offer ourselves a return to well-being and ease.

The measurable results of deep relaxation include more balanced blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol levels, as well as improved digestion and elimination, reduced muscle tension, insomnia and generalized fatigue. What’s more, this practice is uniquely accessible to all ages, all body types, and all states of health.

What are the most important poses in restorative yoga? Which are the strategies we can use to get more out of a restorative yoga practice? How can we create a habit of practicing rest every day? These and other questions will be addressed by world-renowned restorative yoga teacher Judith Hanson Lasater.

Give yourself and others an opportunity to experience the profound rest of restorative yoga. This course will show you how to teach and practice some of the restorative yoga poses Judith considers most essential, and also lead you in two restorative yoga practices, so you will be able to experience how restorative yoga is taught by one of the leading teachers in this area.

What You Will Learn:

• Key restorative poses for rejuvenating body and mind

• How restorative yoga can counteract the effects of chronic stress

• Cues to cultivate deeper relaxation in yourself or your students

• How to identify and overcome what is keeping us from our practice

• Tools to reap maximum benefit from a restorative practice

• How just a few minutes a day of active, supported rest can improve your mood, your energy, and your sense of physical comfort and ease.

This Course Also Includes:

  • Yoga Practice Videos: Two 30-minute restorative yoga practices with Judith Hanson Lasater and her daughter Lizzie.
  • Two Live Q&As with Judith
  • Recordings of All Webinar Sessions: It’s generally acknowledged that many people only retain 10-20 percent of what they learn in a workshop. You will get access to the recordings of both webinar sessions (both MP3 – downloadable and MP4 – streaming online), enabling you to go back and listen to the workshop as many times as you like.
  • Transcripts of Both Sessions: Ever wanted to refer to a certain part of a course? Even the best note takers miss a point every so often. With the transcripts of the sessions, you can go back and refer to particularly important passages or clarify sections you were in doubt about.
The practice of yoga is fundamentally an act of kindness toward oneself. This idea is often forgotten, but not by Judith, whose approach is warm, non-judgmental and responsive to individual differences and needs.

I wanted to expand on my thank you. Yoga U Online has been an absolute lifesaver for me. I moved from a yoga mecca to a yoga desert. Instead of having my choice of teachers and styles and special workshops, I now have to travel an hour to take a class. The excellent teachers and interesting topics at Yoga U Online have kept me moving ahead in my practice. I am grateful for all the wonderful yoga you bring to me. Thank you.
Your website is a blessing to guide me deeper into my personal practice and my teaching practice.
