To ‘rest’, to ‘relax’ and to ‘restore’ is a natural vital process in our lives. Rest supports optimal physiological functioning, and promotes healing and growth. During rest, one’s autonomic nervous system switches from sympathetic-dominance to parasympathetic-dominance, regeneration and restoration is accelerated. Research has shown that relaxation and rest is essential to everyone of all ages and culture, size and shape.

Come and learn the science and art of Restorative Yoga, the skills to practice active relaxation. This immersion supports ample space and time for learning, reflection and integration. Whether your intention is to deepen personal understanding of restorative practices, or to offer it to family / friends, or to teach and share this healing practice, there will be comprehensive coverage of both the theoretical and practical application of restorative yoga.

This comprehensive immersion offers 30 hours of study and practice of:

  • Physiology of relaxation, and the Autonomic Nervous System
  • Continuum of consciousness
  • Relaxation skills / tools
  • Sensory & somatic intelligence
  • Sequencing a practice
  • Variations to adapt and modify, creative use of props​
  • Teaching skills and ethics
  • Adjustments and touch
  • Group vs One-to-one
  • Relaxation and Five Koshas (Physical, Energetic, Emotional, Mental, Pure Being)
  • The process of reflection and integration

Option for certification (additional fee of £100 applies):

Upon successful completion of 30 hours immersion and a follow-up project, trainees will receive a certificate of completion, be offered to join an invitation-only online forum, and also be listed on, which is a widely promoted site by Judith Hanson Lasater and Adelene Cheong for this work.


Following this course a Yogacampus certificate of attendance will be given.
