Nadine Sharkey, UK

E-RYT500

Nadine decided to become a yoga teacher by accident. She undertook her 200 hour training as a way of deepening her own practice. And, to her immense surprise, she discovered that she loved teaching. A year later, she realised that she was happier for the one hour a week she taught part-time, than the 40+ hours a week she spent stretching advertising deadlines. So, one day (after a really frustrating meeting), she quit the day job and booked herself an advanced teacher training in India.

Since then, Nadine has been teaching a combination of Vinyasa, Power, Restorative and Yin classes across London, as well as teaching on both 200 and 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training courses with Sampoorna Yoga, a yoga teacher training school and retreat centre in south India. She aims to bring a sense of playfulness to every class – encouraging students to be curious and to challenge their minds as much as their bodies.

2nd Module – Yin Yoga and Restorative teacher training – 10th of May – 19th of May 2019

Yin Yoga is a lot more than just hip openings and long deep stretches.  It is a complementary practice to the relatively more “Yang” styles of yoga, and a great antidote to our fast-paced, modern day lifestyle.  Its benefits are multi-fold:  it is a grounding and nurturing practice that regulates energy flow, enhances stamina and healing; as well as a meditative practice that brings calmness and clarity to the mind.

Restorative Yoga is not Yin Yoga supported with props.  It is a healing, nurturing practice entirely on its own.  Restorative Yoga balances the nervous systems, releases stress and tension, and enhances natural healing in both the body and mind.

This is a 2-part Yin Yoga & Restorative Yoga Teacher Training where we will utilize a multi-disciplinary approach to learn about Yin and Restorative Yoga, their unique and combined benefits, and how we can apply them in different class settings.  Graduates will be empowered to teach both Yin, Yin Yang, and Restorative Yoga safely and effectively, understand how to prevent injuries in class, as well as how to inspire others in cultivating balanced and mindful yoga practices.

Graduates of this full training will be awarded a 100-hours Yin and Restorative Yoga Teacher Training Certificate, which is also applicable to our 300-hours Advanced Yoga Teacher Training (RYT300 with the Yoga Alliance of the USA).

This Yin & Restorative Yoga Teacher Training is for Dedicated Practitioners and Yoga Teachers who would like to deepen their understanding of Yin & Restorative Yoga, their extensive benefits (in addition to increasing flexibility), and why a balanced Yin, Yin Yang, and Restorative practice is beneficial to our physical and mental well-being.  It will be a combination of lectures and practices as well as teaching practicums and home studies where we will learn why we do the poses, and how to practice them safely and enjoyably.  We will also learn the techniques of teaching and sequencing Yin Yoga classes, giving adjustments and modifications appropriate to individual conditions, as well as the practice of Mindfulness on and off the mat for a balanced, healthy living.  This training will answer all your questions about Yin & Restorative Yoga, and totally revolutionize the way your see and view Yoga as a whole!
