Unlike other exercise programs, restorative poses place minimal metabolic demand on you. We can in fact see the practice as ‘active relaxation.” The postures add to your energy rather than subtract from it, during these periods of deep relaxation, you will be healed and nurtured from within. Qualified yoga instructors will use this certification to complement their current class schedules.

Psoas Release Yoga Training
Psoas release yoga is a yoga adaptation of the TRE (Trauma Release Exercise) model developed by Dr. David Berceli traumaprevention.com for more information.
The Psoas muscle is one of the largest muscles of the body, and it connects from the top of your femur or thighbone to the thoracic spine behind your diaphragm. On a functional level, it is a hip flexor muscle as well as a deep muscle of the core. More importantly it its a sensate muscle, hard-wired into your fight or flight system. Because we find ourselves as a society in chronic stress our Psoas muscle is exhausted and overused.
This class will consist of Yoga Postures designed to stretch and tire the Psoas muscle which enables it to illicit a release response in the way of Neurogenic tremoring that occurs following the Yoga Postures class. This tremoring is a natural response from the body to release deeply held stress and trauma, and the associated stress hormones in order for the body to return to homeostasis where the body can heal, restore and return to normal functioning.
This course will equip yoga instructors to help their students manage stress. During the Webinar and in-person sessions, participants will have an opportunity to experience Psoas Release Yoga and become more aware of its ability not only to reduce stress but to also aid in trauma recovery.
Tuition includes training materials, experiential yoga classes, and mentoring. Suggested reading materials are not included in the cost of tuition.
This course offers 9 YACEP CECs (Yoga Alliance). If the trainee completes the homework for the Certificate an additional 10 YACEP CEC’s (non-contact hours) will be allocated

Yoga Nidra Workshop & Training
Is your favorite part of your yoga class Savasana? Have you ever wondered what a longer deeper relaxation would feel like? What might it do for your stress levels or health in general!
Learn to facilitate and appreciate the full benefits of Yoga Nidra, a deep form of guided meditation that systematically takes you through four brain wave levels on a journey toward yogic sleep. Studies show that one Nidra session translates to the equivalent of 2-3 hours of restful sleep. This practice is deeply restorative and healing for the mind, heart, body, and spirit, and has been used successfully to non-invasively treat the impacts of trauma on the body. Two methods will be taught, including those pioneered by Swami Satyananda Saraswati and Richard Miller. Led by Shirley Berthelet. Students and teachers welcome.
This training will equip qualified yoga instructors to integrate Yoga Nidra into their current class offerings.
