Restorative Yoga Training – The Art of Slowing Down

Course & Session Facilitators: Nevah Eyton & Swan




Restorative Yoga Certification Training

Restorative yoga is a powerful, simple healing practice that regulates the nervous system by slowing down, naturally releasing the layers of tension in which we hold— physically, emotionally & mentally. Its very nature is non intrusive, simply inviting us to surrender to the intelligence of the body—returning to our innate state of being.

This 35-hour training module focuses on the foundation, principles and approach of Restorative Practice. Designed to be an interactive experiential training, this course is taken by teachers of all yoga disciplines, healing practitioners, as well as students who want to deepen their personal practices.

Course Content:
– A solid foundation of classic postures, benefits and effective propping
– Understanding the process of slowing down and how it alleviates the effects of stress
– Restorative as a therapeutic & self-regulating practice
– Insight into nervous system and physiology
– Class Sequencing & flows
– Aspects of The Art of Teaching
– Language, Ethics & Hands-on Contact
– How to effectively integrate Restorative Yoga within another modality
– Time to embodying practice


Course Teachers & Facilitators:

Swan draws on over 25 years of studies in Western and Eastern practices and philosophies. 
Her teachings of Yoga and Meditation over the last 20 years have created a strong learning environment for her students to study a well rounded practice of the anatomical, the mental and the spiritual realms of practice.

Nevah (Wendy) Eyton brings over a decade of study and teaching within the fields of restorative yoga & therapeutic practice as a craniosacral therapist. Both of which feed her life-long passion of slowing down through nervous system self-regulation.

Non-Residential Immersion Retreats with Swan

for practitioners of yoga & meditation



Whole heartedness, vulnerability, daring greatly.

These words have been much on my mind. You may, if you read or listen to TED talks, have recently heard them yourself. Brene Brown has caught the attention of millions, and these are words she has studied, deconstructed and brought to the forefront of popular consciousness.

Each one of us, each day, by the very nature of being human faces uncertainty, risk and frightening vulnerability. Our worlds are ever shifting; the global, the personal, the intimate, where we work, live and love, our worlds are not stable, they continually ask us for change. Where the world holds chaos, in this current climate of collective disconnected amnesia, we can choose courage, connection and learn to lead from our open, tender heart. This is the true yoga. This is trusting your life.

In this workshop we will use our asana postures, meditation and writing practice to create a safe space for deep inquiry into how we might enter our most wholehearted selves. In safely supported dyads and group discussions we will explore what it means to live our lives centred in vulnerability.We will seek to understand how risking more and daring greatly, enables us to be our most authentic self and learn that vulnerability is the only way to make contact with our most creative and intimate life.

This is the first of a new series that Swan will be teaching throughout the Fall/Winter practice session.

Refining our practice through deepening


Tensegrity & Principles of Active Practice

with Swan



This workshop is for ALL students of yoga who wish to practice pain free and without injury. It is for asana students seeking a deeper synergy and efficiency in their body. Students who are new to the concepts of tensegrity will have an opportunity to explore how tensegrity manifests in the body and to embody these concepts by integrated asana practice.




Understanding tensegrity helps us to become like the willow in a storm. Supple and strong, we learn to use the forces not fight forces that move through us. We will learn to balance the natural forces of compression and tension within the body and to find harmony between appropriate tone and relaxation in your posture.

This workshop will support you in understanding how to hold joints in neutral space and leave you with an expanded view of how your core can support your practice.
