Join internationally acclaimed yoga instructors Kali Basman and Kylie Roswell for a Yin & Restorative Yoga Teacher Training will focus on hands-on, anatomical, structural, and energetic based practices for restoration of the body mind. Blending Buddhist Concepts with the Eight Limbs of Yoga, the nourishing waters and sacred landscape of SunWellness in Manitou Springs, Colorado will serve as our home for the week.
A specific focus on Pratyahara - the Great Withdrawal - will be encouraged by drawing the boundaries around retreat life to train in the principles of stillness, spaciousness, and quietude. Disconnecting from normative social contexts and devices is recommended during our time together to allow the nervous system to enter the deep folds of rich restoration.
We will touch on the realms of resetting the nervous system, healing from past traumas, dissolving tensions, increasing musculoskeletal resiliency, strengthening joint stability, and cultivating elasticity in the body mind. We use embodied and informed anatomy and alignment, scientific bases for sequencing, and psychological self inquiry grounded in Buddhist practices.
Our work together as Sangha, spiritual community, will be within the domain of Yin Yoga and will contribute to your continuing education as a Yoga practitioner, inquisitor, and/or facilitator.
