About the event

Savasana can be challenging to settle in to.  It is the bliss state of a yoga practice and the main event in a restorative and nidra class.  When we guide students to “let it go”, many are left wondering “how?”

Learning to guide your students into a deeper restorative & savasana experience using verbal cues, hands-on assists and extra experiences such as essential oil.  This workshop will empower you to confidently serve your students in the best way possible using safe & appropriate techniques in restorative & savasana poses.

We underestimate the grounding effect that human touch provides.  By connecting with other humans, nervous system receives the signal to release into safety.  Nurturing touch is so needed and is a lovely offering to gift your students.
