''Restorative yoga is the use of props to support the body in positions of comfort and ease to facilitate relaxation and health.
In this way, we use the inborn systems of the body to activate the parasympathetic nervous system. This system is responsible for digestion, elimination, fertility, immunity, hormone regulation, and so much more. In our fast-paced smartphone-addled lives we have forgotten how to honor the body’s natural rhythms and requirements for rest.''
Judith Hanson Lasater
Chronic stress contributes to heart disease, hormone disruption, infertility, premenstrual symptoms, digestive disorders, emotional instability, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and more. Restorative yoga is a powerful tool to decrease stress by activating the parasympathetic nervous system.

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

What people say about this training:
‘’I had an amazing time learning a new aspect of 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!’’
‘’This Restorative Yoga Training with Vicky gave me as a yogini a significant tool to continue a self-restorative practice, strengthened the importance of shavasana, the meaning of yoga as a rehabilitation tool for the body and mind as one that can touch everyone. I know 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, to study with Vicky, her insights, her wisdom of life, the professional knowledge, the delivery of the material in a gentle way that observes each trainee create a perfect course and atmosphere.’’
Beloved Vicky, this Restorative Yoga Training was incredible, it was both light and fun and deep and enriching. Your special ability to see each and everyone, to correct, to explain, with a lot of knowledge, application, compassion and kind eyes. You infected us all with your love for yoga, we see that you teach out of great love. You managed to bring us practical tools to make yoga a daily part of our lives. I'm already looking forward to the next time...
