Where Yin, Restorative & Yoga Nidra Meet – CPD Day (BWY approved)
With Judy Hirsh Sampath, BWY yoga teacher, Rest & Restore Practitioner, yoga therapy trainer with Yoga United Education and faculty of Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, USA.
As more students find out about all the diverse forms of yoga and are looking for ways to support mental health and emotions as well as physical health, more teachers are offering ‘static’ forms of yoga such as yin, restorative and yoga nidra.
We will explore these three forms of yoga, the difference between them and what you are already teaching. Discussion on appropriation, safety, props and further study are included.
We will engage in presentations on the subject, demos and practice yin, restorative and yoga nidra. We invite deep enquiry, discussion, Q&A, Please bring a notebook or journal.
There will be a handout outlining the learning from the day sent after the event for your reference.
