50-Hour Programme Training Summary 

The 50-hour programme will fully equip regular practitioners of Restorative Yoga, as well as aspiring teachers who are looking to teach Restorative Yoga - whether in a private or commercial sense - with the breadth of soft and hard skills to deliver a comprehensive experience.

  

Aligned with what Gabrielle uniquely brings to her Restorative Yoga classes, she will be imparting skills relating to the Art of Holding Space, Therapeutic Adjustments, fundamental concepts of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and how to seamlessly weave its guiding principles into a crafted practice that will provide direction towards holistic healing. In this programme, we will also learn how to use additional props and craft that will enhance relaxation such as weighted sandbags, eye-pillows, and singing bowls. The use of wall rope and the Iyengar chair will be incorporated so you can provide multiple avenues of relaxation in your restorative yoga offerings. 

  

With an additional 20-hours in the longer programme comes the chance for the participant to deliver group practice teaching and receive valuable feedback from peers and the trainer, which is crucial, yet so often neglected in training programmes. These additional sessions will provide the time required to do deeper study, experience poses with varied propping, and discuss practical observations and considerations.

  

In line with the growing demand for online teaching, this additional module will be presented to help one clearly distinguish the differences, challenges and concessions to cater for in this clearly distinct field.

  

The demands of private yoga differ considerably, and a deeper insight into how to cater to the differing needs of private clients will give you the confidence to hold space for someone who might be needing this one-to-one down time to seek solace, or cater for injuries and limitations that require technical know-how in one’s approach.

 

50-Hour inclusions

  • Group Practice Teaching - 60min
  • Key differentiation for conducting a Restorative Yoga class online
  • How to offer Therapeutic Assists for your private clients
  • Incorporating Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction concepts into a Restorative Yoga Class
  • Crafting a Restorative Yoga class to include healing elements such as: Chakras, Meridian Pathways, Movement Meditation, Wall Rope and Sound Healing

Gabrielle crumbled under the stress of the corporate world and reclaimed her lost self through yoga. She now follows her dharma, helping others to manage their stress through the means of mindfulness, meditation, and the discipline of yoga.

  

The practice of restorative yoga has enabled her to intentionally implement boundaries to protect her energy, check in with her nervous system in order to skillfully pause and reset, and become aware of any tension-holding patterns.

These abilities have served her well in unearthing the root causes of the stressors in her life, and she hopes that people will take time to discover and benefit from this non-medical approach that can invite harmony and restoration into their lives.

  

Over the past 7 years Gabrielle has had the opportunity to teach, on a full time basis, a variety of Restorative Yoga classes including in-studio, workshop and online experiences. On top of that, Gabrielle conducts monthly group private classes where she incorporates either sound therapy or the use of wall rope to help practitioners to explore different avenues of relaxation. Her skills in acupressure release and know-how in yoga therapy has helped many a private client to cater for injuries and limitations, while feeling safe in their own body to wind down and seek solace.

  

She is also a presenter for PURE Yoga Singapore, where she enters corporate work settings and presents at seminars to deliver Yoga, Mindfulness and Meditation programs.
