Restorative Yoga (Level 2): Advanced Techniques for Teaching The Art of Stillness
Oct 18, 2019| $465
300-Hour Teacher Training Module with Nicole Bratt & Claudette Evans
“Restorative poses can be adapted to the student instead of the student trying to fit [themselves] into the shape and demands of an active yoga pose. Restorative yoga is about opening, not stretching. No matter what condition you are in, it is virtually always possible to find a position of ease that supports you in consciously letting go and resting.” ~Judith Hanson Lasater

About the instructors:
Nicole, a Midwest native, is committed to holding space for students so that they may benefit from this elegant practice we know as yoga. She is deeply honored to be doing just that as the Studio Manager at Seattle Yoga Arts. Her life passion is cultivating vibrant and inclusive community wellness, and she is excited to bring her diverse background as a graphic designer, yoga teacher, event planner, photographer, volunteer coordinator, and small business owner to SYA. firstname.lastname@example.org
As a group fitness instructor, Nicole explored yoga briefly in her 20s, but initially there was little resonance. When yoga crossed her path again in her 30s, she discovered she was ready to fully embrace its life-changing gifts. Her path led to completing both 200-hr and 500-hr teacher trainings at Yoga Tree San Francisco, and she now specializes in Restorative, gentle, therapeutic, and prenatal modalities. She is passionate about the power of stillness as a transformational experience, as well as an antidote to urban living. After 12+ years living, working, and studying in San Francisco, Nicole transplanted to our lush, beautiful Seattle. When she’s not at the studio, you are likely to find Nicole outdoors, listening to live music, creating art, making/eating delicious food, adventuring near and far, or taking a nap. nicolebrattyoga.com
Claudette, E-RYT 500, has been a student of yoga for more than 20 years and a teacher for over a decade. Claudette has a genuine passion for meeting students where they are, helping guide them toward an experience of greater strength and freedom, while allowing them to discover the wisdom that already lies within. She continues to expand her knowledge of yoga through the study of the Sanskrit language, and shares its beauty with curious and devoted students who wish to deepen their practice. You’ll find Claudette’s classes infused with her warm, integrative, and creative spirit. Her enthusiasm and curiosity are catching, and it’s clear that her teaching draws on her own love of physicality, and mental engagement. Through a deft weaving of precise alignment, thoughtful insight, and a great sense of humor, her classes create space for self-expression, clarity of focus, and the sheer joy of being embodied. email@example.com
