Are you a yoga teacher who would like to bring some quieter more nourishing offerings to your yoga community? Or are you a sincere seeker – a yoga practitioner looking to take your home practice to a deeper and more reflective place?
Join me for The Art of Rest by Katie Welsh: Restorative Yoga and explore this rejuvenating practice. Restorative yoga is a relaxation and rest practice that replenishes and heals the body through the parasympathetic nervous system.
Burnout is on the rise around the world, and in Australia. Doing more is a feature of modern society. Mental health issues abound. The need for rest has never been greater, and this is being seen by increasing demand for quieter yoga classes.
The Art of Rest by Katie Welsh: Restorative Yoga will bring you an understanding of restorative yoga from a historical, theoretical and practical perspective, allowing you to be able to serve the need of the community.

Why train with Katie?
Katie is a long time restorative yoga teacher – it is her passion – what she practices and what she teaches. She is a champion of rest and provides a true sanctuary for her students. She stays true to the traditions of yoga and always teaches with a sprinkling of history and philosophy. Katie is a Level 2 teacher with Yoga Australia and a E-RYT® 200, RYT® 500, YACEP® Teacher with Yoga Alliance, but first and foremost she is a yoga practitioner. A seeker on the spiritual path of yoga - known as a mumukṣu. Always learning. Always evolving. Always experiencing life and making sense of the wisdom. In an increasingly busy world, Katie loves guiding people to find inner peace and clarity through divinely restful yoga practices, mantra, meditation and wisdom from the ancient scriptures. She finds great joy in sharing yogic wisdom and practices to those who feel a connection with her. Restorative yoga is a massive part of her life, but it was also critical to her healing recently through the experience of breast cancer. This is when she knew she wanted to educate more teachers on the magic of restorative yoga. It is so needed in today’s world.

I have practiced yoga with Katie for many years and her classes and teachings are amazing. Katie’s gentle restorative style is perfect for the workshops and classes she offers, and she has the amazing ability of being able to take you deep inside with both her voice and the variety within her practices. I’ve attended a number of Katie’s offerings (both online and in person) and through these I continue to gain a deeper understanding of the true nature of yoga – not just the physical practices . Katie’s knowledge and love of the yogic philosophies (foremost the Bhagavad Gita) and the ancient teachings of yoga is evident and she is always willing to share these teachings, weaving them beautifully into her workshops and classes. Before meeting Katie, yoga to me was more or less a physical practice, but with Katie’s guidance and teachings that has very much changed. She has inspired and guided me to delve deeper into ‘real yoga’, which has enabled me to practice and incorporate the deeper teachings of yoga within my own life and the classes I offer. I feel there is a real need for the philosophy training Katie is intending to offer, and I can’t think of anyone I would rather learn from – Katie has a clear and easy teaching style, and makes the sometimes complex philosophy easy to understand.
