Breathing techniques and Pranayama are also covered along with further developing your understanding of anatomy and helping students with limited ranges of motion. You will further your understanding of prop use, proper alignment, how each muscle is used, how slight alterations of a pose can enhance or reduce effectiveness, safety precautions, and how the spine, breathing, and body position are all fundamentally linked.

  • Yogic Philosophy and Teaching Restorative Yoga this section reviews information typically covered in a Level 1 training by discussing sections of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the Eight Limbs of Yoga, the Chakras, and other methodologies and discusses how they relate to a Restorative Yoga practice. We also review communicating with our students, how observing and reading your class is important, and how to assist the different students that you will teach.
  • Pranayama and Relaxation Techniques the Pranayama techniques that are used during a Restorative Yoga class are an important part of help your students to relax and rejuvenate. The technique covered, along with video demonstrations, are Apa Japa Breath, Diaphragmatic Breath, Ujjayi Breathing and Ujjayi Pranayama, Nadi Shodana, Sitali Breathing, and Full Yogic Breath. Additional relaxation techniques like Mantra Meditation and Yoga Nidra are also covered.
  • Learning the Asanas this is an 8-part lesson that thoroughly covers the asanas with a focus on a Restorative Yoga class setting. How to practice the asanas with props and modifications and how to assist and align students is the focus of these lessons. In your previous training(s), you would have covered the asana names, how to practice them, muscles affected, variations, modifications, etc. However, a Restorative Yoga practice is about rejuvenation and being able to safely and comfortably relax into an asana. These lessons dive into 30+ of the most commonly practiced Restorative Yoga postures to provide more in-depth information on modifications and props used. Video aids for setting up and practicing the asanas as well as assisting and alignment practices are covered, along with a review on the benefits and contraindications for each asana. Lastly, we review meditation practices (along with example sessions via video) and how they fit into a Restorative class.

We cover about 100 sequences that range from focusing on a certain part of the body (upper back, knees, shoulders, etc.) to particular ailments (colds, bronchitis, sciatica, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, high blood pressure, etc.) to mental health needs (depression, anxiety, stress, etc.) Sequences are provided both in text and through video aids.

Why is it called, “Yoga Teacher Training Camp-in-a-Box?”

In 1998, Aura Wellness Center started offering Yoga Teacher Trainings, lead by Dr. Paul Jerard, E-RYT 500, YACEP, called “Yoga Teacher Training Camps” – a full month immersion course.

By 2002, many of our local students had said they wanted to take a Yoga Teacher Training, however, due to family obligations, work schedules, and cost, it was impossible to take a month off and become a Yoga teacher. Dr. Paul Jerard started thinking about how to make an affordable, convenient, and self-paced training to work on anyone’s schedule.

He made these new courses with the same curriculum, materials, and lessons as an onsite training, so that a graduating teacher would have the same experience. These courses would be later shipped in boxes all over the world with a syllabus, teacher tips, exams, media, and books became known as the “Yoga Teacher Training Camp-in-a-Box”.

Nowadays, many courses have shifted to online formats, especially due to increased shipping costs and greater convenience of receiving learnings electronically. However, we have kept the name “Camp-in-a-Box” in our courses, as it is what many people know us by, and it is part of our proud history of offering affordable trainings.

    This was a great add on to my Hatha Yoga Platinum training. I know so much more now about modifications, props use, and overall how to run a Restorative Style Yoga class.

    I started my qualification with Aura Wellness Center in September 2013 and completed my qualification at the end of August 2014. The course was accurate, stimulating and made putting a yoga class together easy. Everything was there that was needed. The books were educational in a practical as well as a theoretical way and the videos showed simple sequences that are relative to what the average practitioner can achieve very quickly. Both of these gave me the confidence to start up and teach my classes. Being able to complete the examination questions and write the essay, really convinced me that I now knew a lot about Yoga. Nearly three years later I’m still teaching and although new members have joined the class the original people that I started with are also still coming. To me, that says everything. Many thanks to Aura Wellness Center, with whom I continued my education by doing a Restorative Yoga Teaching Course and am now studying the “Therapeutic Yoga Course”.

    Thanks so much to Aura Wellness, Dr. Paul Jerard and staff for all the valuable information.

    I had been doing yoga off and on for many years when I finally decided to get serious about it. I started taking yoga at two Recreational Centers in my rather small town. At 55 years of age I learned my body had begun to desert me. But I was determined. Finally I signed up for Aura Wellness Level I Yoga In a Box. An online certification you might ask disdainfully. If that is the case, best to try one on from Aura Wellness. It is no cake walk. You will spend many hours preparing for the exams and the practical. I received all I needed to be able to teach beginning yoga, which I have been doing for several years.

    At 70, I am now certified in Level I, Chair and Restorative Yoga. These classes give my senior students opportunities to move into better health, balance and flexibility. The courses are extremely difficult–that’s as it should be. I feel that I received all I needed to teach these classes.

    Thanks so much to Aura Wellness, Dr. Paul Jerard and staff for all the valuable information. I refer to it all the time and am so glad to have completed these courses.
