Relax & Renew

Apr 4-8, 2022

Restorative Yoga Teacher Training with Judith Hanson Lasater, Ph.D.

We work hard in our lives and rarely take time to rest. Restorative Yoga helps us relax—often more deeply than a night of sleep. Deep relaxation benefits all the body’s organ systems. The results are measurable. This 30-hour workshop covers the art and skill of teaching Restorative Yoga. We will explore the physiology of relaxation; the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of rest; special poses for menstruation, pregnancy and menopause; and how to sequence a class.

Requirements: The workshop is open to all teachers and serious students, however if you wish to become certified as a Relax and Renew® Trainer, you must fulfill the following: attend all sessions, complete a project to be submitted approximately 8 weeks after the workshop, including a check for an additional $150 which covers the cost of the certificate, grading, and a lifetime listing on Judith’s website exclusively promoting Restorative yoga teachers ( It is also possible to take the workshop for learning only and not submit the project.

Please do NOT schedule your return flight at a time that requires you to leave early and miss ANY of the training. To receive the certificate please remember you must submit a project AND be present at all hours of the training. NO EXCEPTIONS.

April 4-8, 2022 Monday-Friday, 10:30-1:30 & 2:30-5:30 Beginners welcome!
