Level 2 TT with Amanda Brown 100 hrs 70 hours contact time over 5 weekends plus a weekly commitment to suitable classes and Coursework (written and practice teaching)
Relax, Rest and Restore.
This training draws on Amanda’s vast teaching and learning experiences over the last 35 years and offers a wide range of techniques and modalities which she has found to work well both on their own and synergistically.
This training may differ slightly from many restorative trainings in that Amanda has included much more comprehensive material and is completed over 5 months which will give you the opportunity to really dive in and embody what you are learning. Amanda feels that this way of working requires a depth of knowledge to be able to confidently hold the challenges that slowing down and pausing can present for students. It will also enable you to take your work into different contexts. This gentle approach is very needed in the world right now.
We will develop the skills to invite people into resting states using a reflective and experiential process. Creative experimentation is encouraged and underpinned by anatomical principles, neuroscience and intelligent sequencing and will help you develop an understanding of your own strengths as a teacher.
Restorative postures, universal principles, propping (and non propping) and sequencing.
Simple myofascial release techniques.
Pranayama techniques and approaches suitable for restorative practice. Contraindications.
Introduction to somatic movement and reflexes.
Developmental movement patterns.
A deeper understanding of trauma informed practice and gentle interventions and practices for use in class and beyond.

There can be an intensity working with these more internal practices if you are not used to it, so come prepared to delve deep and be challenged in a different way than you have perhaps been in more yang style teacher trainings. Please make sure you have experienced some restorative classes before applying. Minimum 200 hour qualification to apply.
