Kunga Restorative Yoga Teacher Training

Restorative Yoga is a deeply restful, rejuvenating practice of yoga that helps us learn how to relax the body and mind through supported yoga postures and breathing practices

Part of the Kunga Yoga Service Leadership 300hr Track

Benefits of Restorative Yoga include:

  • General physical and mental relaxation and rejuvenation
  • Movement and release of lactic acid and lymphatic fluid in the body, increasing immune function
  • Lower blood pressure & cortisol levels
  • Increased body-mind-spirit connection through mindfulness meditation
  • Activation of the relaxation response through the parasympathetic nervous system
  • Gentle flush of the internal organs through deeper breath work (Pranayama)

The Kunga Restorative Yoga Teacher Training certification is for students and teachers of all levels seeking to reduce tension and stress, and learn the art and skill of preparing sequences and teaching restorative yoga for all populations. This training includes therapeutic applications for pregnant women, students with cancer and practices for those simply seeking more relaxation and reduction of anxiety.
