This training will help you to see each yoga student as they are on given day and will help you to encourage stillness and self-reflection. In this training, we teach the benefits and principles of incorporating props into yoga poses: their set-up, their benefits, the use of minimal or maximal props situations. We teach use of ambience, music, voice, and touch; how to adjust for safety & alignment of the body in poses using props. This gentle approach to practice allows participants to experience the same benefits of traditional practice while exerting little or no effort at all and leaves students feeling nourished, refreshed and well rested. This training includes an introduction to Restorative Yoga, and facilitates the four conditions for relaxation: relaxing the muscles with support, soothing the responses caused by stress, calming the mind and finding a relaxed smooth breath. Restorative Yoga encourages students to become aware of the sensations and feelings of breathing and provides a chance to experience breath without muscular effort that brings about opening, healing, and a calm state of mind.
**PLEASE NOTE: YogaFit Props is also Day 1 of the 4 day Restorative training. If you are planning to take the 4 day Restorative training, you may want to choose a different One Day Workshop to attend for RYT 200.
