Everything You Need to Know

Experience a shift in mindset, empowering you to reapproach well-being from a more effective viewpoint that can change lives profoundly.

Life encourages us to be productive and always exist in our hyper state of 'doing', yet we often forget our natural state of 'being'. 

Multitasking may be a key goal in Western society, yet it often drives us to be overworked and sleep-deprived, reducing our ability to maintain a harmonious lifestyle of health and joy. This is where restorative yoga comes in, to do its magic as a profound therapeutic practice that cares for our physical, mental, and emotional healing.

In restorative yoga, deep relaxation is achieved by holding a small selection of poses for an extended 10-20 minutes each during one yoga class. When practiced consistently, Restorative Yoga Practice can continuously boost the body's ability to work internally on physiological and spiritual well-being.

Practicing restorative yoga gives your body the safe refuge it needs to focus on rebalancing the parasympathetic nervous system (rest & digest), ensuring the body is restored, relaxed, healed, and functioning in harmony, naturally.

In a Restorative Yoga Teacher Training you learn powerful tools to downregulate our exhausted nervous system and soothe your mental, emotional and physical health.

Restorative yoga, now more than ever, is a radical act of self-care in a society that’s so filled with aggression and violence.

What is a Restorative Yoga?

''Restorative yoga is the use of props to create positions of ease and comfort that facilitate relaxation and health. Restorative yoga is a practice in and of itself for people of all ages, at all levels of yoga experience, and in all states of health''    - Judith Hanson Lasater

Why Should We Practice a Restorative Yoga?

Life encourages us to be productive and always exist in our hyper state of 'doing', yet we often forget our natural state of 'being'. Multitasking may be a key goal in Western society, yet it often drives us to be overworked and sleep-deprived, reducing our ability to maintain a harmonious lifestyle of health and joy. This is where restorative yoga comes in, to do its magic as a profound therapeutic practice that cares for our physical, mental, and emotional healing.

In restorative yoga, deep relaxation is achieved by holding a small selection of poses for an extended 10-20 minutes each during one yoga class. When practiced consistently, Restorative Yoga Practice can continuously boost the body's ability to work internally on physiological and spiritual well-being.

Practicing restorative yoga gives your body the safe haven it needs to focus on rebalancing the parasympathetic nervous system (rest & digest), ensuring the body is restored, relaxed, healed, and functioning in harmony, naturally.

Restorative yoga postures help us learn to relax and rest deeply and completely. During deep relaxation, all the organ systems of the body are benefited. A few of the measurable results of relaxation are the reduction of blood pressure and the improvement of immune function, as well as improvement in digestion, fertility, elimination and the reduction of muscle tension and general fatigue.

 More than just rest, Restorative practices promote physical, emotional, and psychological healing. ’’

Judith Hanson Laster

In this Level 1 RYTT, you will learn the art and skill of teaching Restorative Yoga. 

All aspects of the subject will be covered, including the physiology of relaxation, the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of Restorative Yoga, special poses for menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause, and how to sequence and teach a class in Restorative Yoga.

The Brain Science: Restorative yoga reduces hyperactivity in the frontal cortex and helps us to regulate interoceptive awareness. When we practice, our brain waves change, shifting from Beta (active state) through Alpha (meditative state) into the deeper Theta (dream state) and Delta (sleep state).

What students say about studying with Vicky:

I had an amazing time learning Restorative Yoga and at the same time  deepening and improving my daily yoga practice. I'd say that especially in these present moments, Restorative Yoga feels to me as a MUST for everyone who needs to deeply relax and find ways to help heal the body and the mind through easy but powerful tools. It was really enjoyable and fully recommended!

Samantha Katz, RYTTC, Greece 2023

I highly recommend this Restorative Yoga tarining with Vicky. For me it's really a complement to dynamic yoga. In the course, tools are taught that allow the body the receive healing and treatment, for oneself or for others. The course is constructed excellently and Vicky has the ability to reach out and see each one in an honest and authentic way. It was full of content, enriching and fun.

Suitable for every yogi and anyone who needs tools for a more balanced life and self-care.

Revital Fogel, RYTTC, Greece 2023

A restorative yoga training with Vicky gave me as a yogini significant tools to continue self-practice, strengthened the importance of shavasana, and the meaning of yoga as a rehabilitation tool for the body and mind.  I  am sure that I will use this tool for myself and those around me and in the future I will also teach my students. Beyond all this, this course with Vicky, the insights, her wisdom of life, the professional knowledge, the delivery of the lessons in a gentle way that observes each trainee create a perfect course and atmosphere.

Definetely a course that I would recommend for everyone, and not only teachers.

Lian Levintal, RYTTC, Greece 2023

I joined Yoga Teacher Training led by Vicky after a maternity leave, not practicing for half a year, vaguely remembering that I once had a dream, to go deeper and know more about Yoga. It turned out to be the best choice ever. I felt that I was in the most professional hands there is. Slowly I learned to practice with attention, developing a healthier mind set with each daily practice and the study routine. Studying Yoga is a physically and mentally challenging journey, but it is without a doubt, one of the best gifts I could give myself. I highly recommend you to study with Vicky. This is just the beginning of a long and wonderful road.

Mor Peso,

Yoga Teacher Training Course 2015

The Teacher Training Course with Vicky came into the right moment of my life. The course gave me knowledge, experience, but above all, it gave me friends and the space I needed to find my own truth about Yoga. And I thank Vicky for creating this space for the transformation to happen. 

Daniel Wolfsdor

Yoga Teacher Training Course 2019

"Finding Yoga changed my life in so many ways that it's hard to put in words. I started the 500 hours TTC with Vicky a bit by chance, mainly to have the opportunity to get deeper into this world and learn things that I wouldn't have otherwise. I wasn't really planning to become a full-time yoga teacher, but now that the training is over, I look at it as one of the most beautiful things I can do in my life. The course has been intense and needed quite a lot of commitment, but the reward in the end has been priceless; it gave me all that I was looking for, brought me closer to myself through the amazing practice of Ashtanga Yoga, which is an indescribable process. It enriched and deepened my background, classes including subjects as anatomy, philosophy, Ayurveda and Indian culture. And the trip to India in the end of the course has been nothing but magic, the perfect ending of a flawless internal and external journey. Now that it is over, I feel deeply thankful - and a bit nostalgic already. I wish I could do it again. Thank you, Vicky!"

Yoga Teacher Training Course 2019

It is obvious that Vicky has a lot of experience in the field, every question that came up received a comprehensive and detailed answer. Vicky is a teacher to the teachers and there is no doubt that Vicky is an excellent teacher with extensive experience and knowledge. I practiced yoga for several years before I came to Vicky, and there is no doubt that she is the most experienced of all the teachers I practiced with.

I am very happy to have taken part in.

Thanks for everything,

May Hartov, TTC 2019

When I enrolled in a yoga teacher training course led by Vicky, I did not really have experience and knowledge towards what I was going for but I felt I was given the opportunity for something different from what I knew. I enrolled in this course not to be a real yoga teacher but rather to deepen my practice and learn about yoga.

I did not imagine that this is one of the right decisions I have made in my life so far at least. Vicky’s leadership has contributed a lot to my personal connection and desire to teach as much as the student wants to learn.

I may not be a yoga teacher but I will definitely be a great recommender of the teacher course with Vicky.

Eyal Chen, TTC 2019

As someone who is sceptical and problematic about Yoga, you really impressed me with your personal approach and knowledge. I really liked your way of understanding people with special needs and even after one session, I feel I have some tools for feeling better in my own skin. I feel really liberated physically. Which I don’t take for granted.

So thank you for changing my mind and helping me!

I really enjoyed being a part of the retreat and having the experience!

You are a special teacher and human,  Vicky!

Thank you,

Matan
