Elective Courses

30 Hour Restorative Yoga Teacher Training

This is one of our most popular trainings! Students love the powerful, rejuvenating, & healing effects of Restorative Yoga.  Restorative  yoga is a gentle inward form of yoga that invites participants to move  towards greater balance, control, and participation in their life. The  participant's body is placed in yoga postures that are supported with  props. The mind is invited to slow down with the use of pranayama,  visualization, and mantra allowing the individual to turn inside. A  restorative practice is a complement to any yoga practice or other forms  of exercise and perfect for almost any practitioner looking to  experience a deeper state of relaxation and healing than Savasana or  sleep. It is also a perfect practice for those recovering from injury or  illness or anyone who experiences stress on a daily basis. THIS TRAINING IS OPEN TO STUDENTS AND TEACHERS. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A STUDENT OF YOGA UNIVERSITY TO TAKE THIS TRAINING.  Details:

Bryan Kest Long, Slow, Deep Workshop

Long, Slow, Deep Master Class (2p-5p) Bryan had a couple of objectives when he created Long, Slow, Deep. First of all, Bryan wanted to give students a deep and  challenging alternative to the myriad of Vinyasa and flowing yoga classes. He  wanted students to have a choice of yoga practices that may not involve Sun Salutations or Standing Series. Bryan wanted to offer students a practice that is utterly potent without focusing on strength, endurance or even building much heat. Secondly, Bryan wanted students to experience the benefits of holding poses a little longer, giving massive areas such as hamstrings, groin, hips, shoulders, etc.,  more time to release and go deeper into poses. This is truly an amazing routine!! It is by FAR the most difficult class Bryan teaches, yet we rarely leave the  floor. The challenge of Long, Slow, Deep is mostly  primarily mental but hang in there, be patient and keep breathing  deeply and fluidly. This class is suited for students of all levels.
