Deep Dive: Restorative vs Recuperative Yoga Practices with Donna Read

24- Hour Intensive

There is often confusion around what “restorative” means to us – even within the yoga community! Donna Read invites you to take a deep dive into understanding restorative postures and practices, recuperative postures and practices, and the difference between them.

This 2-weekend intensive will explore these two types of postures and present an opportunity to learn more about how to use them, when to use them, and why we use them differently. Do we need nervous system regulation during a full moon? Are we seeking recovery from illness? Is one person’s restorative posture another person’s recuperative posture?

The course is structured to examine postures in detail on Saturday, and to discuss different ways to use them in sequencing practices. On Sunday, Donna will take the group through both a restorative practice and a recuperative practice to better understand the differences between them.

This intensive is designed for yoga teachers and intermediate and advanced yoga students. Join senior yoga instructor Donna Read for this dynamic and informative intensive.
