Restorative Yoga is a receptive practice of mindful resting to heal injuries and/or traumas and invoke a deep sense of relaxation necessary for radiant, balanced health. It is vital to help move energy for anyone healing from any injury or trauma. As a teacher, it is critical that you know what to do, and how to skillfully and confidently respond to students in their process of healing.

This YA Restorative Yoga Teacher Training is suitable for yoga teachers and those in the healing profession who wish to deepen their skills in one of the most accessible forms of yoga.

Here, you will be taught the art and skill of teaching restorative yoga with a practical understanding of how restorative poses work for balance and inner quiet. We wish to help you make this type of yoga available to heal the masses, and so are offering this first dedicated course of its kind in the Gulf Region.

Restorative Yoga classes are some of our best attended classes at Swan River Yoga. There is a reason for this. Although it appears not much is going on in the outer form, a lot is happening in the undercurrents of our experience.
A thorough exploration of forward folds, backbends, inversions, twists and hip opener modifications, physical benefits, metaphysical benefits, energetic/subtle body effects, the rest and digest response, eagle eye, injury prevention and contra-indications.

Atmosphere: Set up, Restorative Yoga Demographics, Injury acknowledgement, How to hold space for Restorative Yoga, language, voice, vocabulary, tone, content and pace, attentiveness, stillness, meditational mood, dharma ideas

Discover Your 2021 Word

with Kerry Whiteley at URU Yoga - Gulf Breeze
Sunday, December 13 11:30 am – 1:30 pm

We are coming to the end of a very unique & challenging year. What did you struggle with? How did you grow?
How do you envision the coming year?

We often look to a new year’s resolution to lead us to what we want. But often that resolution is something very specific such as “go to the gym more”, “lose the Covid 19 lbs I gained”, “get a better job”, etc. But then when those things don’ t happen within the first few weeks, we get discouraged, lose steam, and are left feeling defeated. Or maybe you DO lose those 19 pounds but you still don’t feel the way you hoped.

This is because happiness is not about the things we get or accomplish, it is about how we feel when we are living at our highest vibration.

We often struggle with exercise, weight, job satisfaction, etc. not because we aren’t doing something right or we don’t know what to do, but because there are other things going on inside that determine why we behave in ways that go against what we say we want.

When we discover our word, or in yoga philosophy known as Sankalpa, we are taking a different spin on a new year’s resolution. While resolutions can often set us up for failure, choosing a word/sankalpa for the year gives us 365 days to reflect on our word in an intentional way and then watch how it will manifest in our lives. This discovery will lead us to our dharma, life purpose.

The law of attraction simply states that we attract into our lives whatever we set our focus on. Bring into your life new focus. Set an intention and create your vision through your one word. After you discover your word, you will post it on your refrigerator, in your car, on your phone…wherever you can be reminded of your intention. Create actions to support your intention and then watch how it unfolds.
In this workshop, we will go through a 5 Step process to help you discover your word to move in the direction for how you want to feel. The “what you do” will come in time as you uncover what lies beneath and what your deepest desires truly are.

We will do light stretching, meditations, simple writing and reflection exercises, group connections, and sacred circling to discover your word. Bring water, journal, and pen, wear comfortable clothes, and allow yourself to be open and willing to discover.

Reiki Level 1 Certification with Diane Ferguson

with Diane Roll Ferguson at URU Yoga - Gulf Breeze
Saturday, January 9 9:00 am – 1:30 pm

Level 1 Reiki Training with Diane Ferguson
Zoom Event

January 9, 2021
9:00-1:30, 4-5:30 Zoom
Investment: $150

Level 1 is a practitioner's initiation into Reiki and is open to anyone. The focus during Level 1 is on opening the energy channels on a physical level, allowing the practitioner to connect to the universal life force energy, which flows through the crown of the head and down to the heart and hands.

The Reiki attunement is what makes Reiki unique to other forms of healing touch and energy work. This ceremony, called Reiju (Ray-joo) in Japanese, is performed by the Reiki Master and opens and expands the main energy channels of the student's body, allowing universal energy, also known as Qi/Chi/Ki, to flow more freely and deeply.

Because of this opening process, the attunement also does what Reiki is meant to do — clear blockages. As a result, this can create significant energy changes within the individual and many will undergo an intense period of self-growth.

The emphasis of this Level 1 training will be self-Reiki, encouraging students to focus on practicing Reiki on themselves, thereby working through their own obstacles. Many experience physical symptoms of energy in their palms after the first attunement — including tingling, coolness or heat. This course will also provide an overview of the history of Reiki, chakra study, Level 1 attunement, hand placements and self and group practice.

Diane Ferguson is an Usui Ryoho Reiki Level III Master Teacher who began her study of Reiki in 2014 and has been working with others in this healing modality since 2015. Diane believes that the power of Reiki is limitless and can be applied to nearly every facet of your life. Diane is also a 500 hour RYT yoga instructor, Certified Health Coach, retreat facilitator, and ordained Minister.
