Sussex Yoga Training’s 30 Hour Restorative & Yin Yoga CPD course, registered with the Yoga Alliance UK & is for established teachers or those working towards a level three diploma or 200 hours certificate. It is a two day training that will enable you to deliver two entirely useful methods of yoga to your students.
This two-day training will consist of practical explorations, presentations & discussions with senior teacher, Lucy Leslie.
Restorative: The anatomy & physiology of Restorative Yoga, nervous system regulation & the relationship with other body systems. The physiology of stress & relaxation, vagal tone & how to elicit the relaxation response. You’ll practice teaching, whilst considering environment, postures, props, modifications, progressions, intention, sequencing, theming, class planning, breath & language.
Combining Yin and Restorative Postures in a class: Guidance on sequencing, planning, delivery & Yin Yoga versus Restorative Yoga – what makes them different & why they work well together.
Yin Yoga: Purpose & benefits. The anatomy of Yin Yoga – “Yin tissues”, flexibility, fascia & the heart-mind connection. You’ll work on practical delivery of Yin Yoga postures whilst looking at intention & attention, the energetic body, duration, breathing, use of props, sequencing and themes.

Vinyasa Flow is a popular yoga method & is often the first form of yoga found by those who came to yoga through the gym. Like all yogas, it is practiced with the breath as the guide, an oft forgotten but necessary component if it is to be called yoga at all.
Sequences of poses are linked together, generating heat, flexibility, strength, coordination & stamina. Many students want to enjoy the rhythm & fluidity of the Vinyasa Flow classes abut are excluded because of low levels of strength, fitness, stamina & flexibility. Being able to teach flow to a wide variety of bodies, ages & abilities is an excellent addition to a teacher’s skillset.
We'll look at warm-up, Surya Namaskar variations, peak poses, themes & using the warmth we build, for the best outcome.
Important areas such as the method's accessibility to the many or the few will be carefully thought about. We will breakdown the classical transitions & consider modified transitions for increased accessibility & what to do with knees & shoulders, as well as how to language a class that moves on the breath, whilst demoing & observing the students.
This training immersion will be an opportunity for you to find your own style of teaching for the clients who trust you already. As with all our trainings you will receive the support of your lead teacher whilst on the course & beyond.
