Yoga is a lifelong practice for both teachers and students, offering multiple opportunities to develop, grow, and deepen the practice. As a teacher, embarking on advanced yoga teacher training – like Restorative Yoga Teacher Training – will not only enrich and enlighten your own practice, but offer the chance to share a new journey with your students in classes too.
Whether you are just starting on your journey as a Yoga Teacher, or are seeking to enhance your existing teaching skills, Restorative Yoga is one of the most wholesome and non-dogmatic approaches to yoga today.
As our world speeds up, our need to slow-down grows, so training in Restorative Yoga to add to your repertoire will be the ideal antidote to the stress of everyday life for students. In summer the practice will be appreciated by those looking to slow down the body in the heat and release tension caused by stress as work pressure grows. However, in winter it will continue to be the desired practice, offering the opportunity to cosy up in the dark, cold evenings – a great way for students to cope with the demanding and busy Christmas season.
If you’re keen to add a complementary yoga practice to the more dynamic and invigorating yoga styles, look to our Restorative Yoga Teacher Training immersion with Senior Yoga Teacher, Deborah Berryman, here at Whitespace Yoga & Wellbeing Studio in Milton Keynes.
At our Yoga Teacher Training Centre, this wholesome 4-day immersion will provide you with the tools to enrich your practice and teach authentically, grounded both in self-awareness and experiential knowledge. Together you will explore:
Deborah will share her experience and the tools of the practice, exploring how to relax and rest deeply. Each day will include Restorative Practice as well as Meditation and Self-reflection. You will be required to have your own daily practice during the course as well as journaling.
Deborah Berryman is known for her infectious curiosity for the practice and for life. Drawing on over 12yrs of teaching experience, she is passionate about Restorative Yoga and sharing the life-enhancing benefits of a regular practice.
She is a ‘teacher of teachers’, and teaches national and international Retreats, Workshops and Teacher Training which are always insightful and great fun. She strikes that balance of touching the deeper & more profound aspects of our practice and ourselves while rediscovering a lightness and playful side – very life-affirming!
Her teaching explores physiology as well as our emotional and energetic patterns, as she believes to free the body, we must first understand how everything integrates, and how we can support all aspects of the self to bring about healing.
Deborah studied for many years with Judith Lasater, assisting her training in the UK and completing her Advanced Therapeutic Restorative Teacher Training. She will share her training, experience and personal insights, exploring the power of relaxing and resting deeply.
She is the founder and senior faculty member of Whitespaces’ Teacher Training Programme and holds the highest level of certification from Yoga Alliance – Senior Yoga Teacher (SYT) as well being a Mindfulness Teacher (Bangor University), iRest Teacher and British Wheel of Yoga Dipl (BWY).
On completion of the course and assignment, graduate Yoga Teachers will receive a Whitespace 50hr Restorative Teaching Certificate. Non-Teachers can receive a Certificate of Attendance upon request. Training hours can be used for CPD points e.g. Yoga Alliance, British Wheel, General Osteopathic Council. Please check with your Professional Body for details.
This course is a welcome study immersion for yoga teachers and teachers in training to refresh, renew and to deepen their practice and study. It’s also open to dedicated yoga students (minimum of 2 years consistent practice) wanting to deepen their understanding and practice of yoga, and health professionals (e.g. Osteopaths, Integrative and Psychomotor Therapists) keen to broaden their knowledge and skills (please note, this wouldn’t certify you as a Yoga Teacher).
