RESTORATIVE YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
Our body is hard-wired to react to stress in ways meant to protect you against threats from predators and other aggressors. Such threats are rare today, but that doesn't mean that life is free of stress.
On the contrary, you likely face many demands each day, such as taking on a huge workload, paying the bills and taking care of your family. Your body treats these so-called minor hassles as threats. As a result, you may feel as if you're constantly under attack. But you can fight back. You don't have to let stress control your life.
Restorative Yoga is a tool that can support you to manage these daily stresses, which over time, can contribute to dis-ease and imbalance within your body
Available for guided, online, self-study or mentorship in Costa Rica.
When you encounter a perceived threat — such as a large dog barking at you during your morning walk — your hypothalamus, a tiny region at your brain's base, sets off an alarm system in your body. Through a combination of nerve and hormonal signals, this system prompts your adrenal glands, located atop your kidneys, to release a surge of hormones, including adrenaline and cortisol.
Adrenaline increases your heart rate, elevates your blood pressure and boosts energy supplies. Cortisol, the primary stress hormone, increases sugars (glucose) in the bloodstream, enhances your brain's use of glucose and increases the availability of substances that repair tissues.
Cortisol also curbs functions that would be nonessential or harmful in a fight-or-flight situation. It alters immune system responses and suppresses the digestive system, the reproductive system and growth processes. This complex natural alarm system also communicates with the brain regions that control mood, motivation and fear.
When the natural stress response goes wild, the body's stress response system is usually self-limiting. Once a perceived threat has passed, hormone levels return to normal. As adrenaline and cortisol levels drop, your heart rate and blood pressure return to baseline levels, and other systems resume their regular activities.
But when stressors are always present and you constantly feel under attack, that fight-or-flight reaction stays turned on.
The long-term activation of the stress response system and the overexposure to cortisol and other stress hormones that follows can disrupt almost all your body's processes. This puts you at increased risk of many health problems, including:
Muscle tension and pain
Heart disease, heart attack, high blood pressure and stroke
Memory and concentration impairment
That's why it's so important to learn healthy ways to cope with your life stressors.

"My YTT experience with Hali Love was transformational. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience that is awe-inspiring. She leads by example and brings her truest self forward in every moment. In this course, I discovered the importance of self-love and healing through emotional expression and communication. With Hali’s close guidance, I explored yoga beyond just the physical practice and learned how to realign my mind, body, and soul. I also benefitted from the reflection and class discussions which deepened my understanding of each lesson. Hali takes the time to connect with every student and she challenged me through exactly what I needed to learn, grow, and flourish. I am so very grateful for this experience with Hali and Multi-Style Yoga. Thank you :)" Josie
"My experience at yoga teacher training with Hali Love was simply incredible. By day 2 it was clear that this was something EVERYONE should experience. My body, mind and spirit were so open, connected and so ready to keep learning. Hali created spaced for dialogue, new thoughts and change. I am a carpenter and never having the thought that I would teach yoga, I originally went to yoga teacher training for personal development. I had been witness to my wife’s transformation with Hali. So I had some idea of what to expect but my expectations were blown out of the water. Upon my return, still being a carpenter, I was awakened to a new passion of teaching and practicing yoga. I used to say to my wife that Namaste meant, “Nah I’ll stay, I’ll go to yoga next time”. Hali Love helped to inspire an awakening within. If you only one thing for yourself in this life, this should be it. Multi Style Yoga and Hali Love changed my life." John
"I went to teacher training not wanting to be a teacher, but to further my practice. I had no idea what to expect. I was expecting asana practice. A lot of it. And with two hours of practice every day, I definitely got it. But there was SO much more. One thing Hali said that resonated with me the most was "Anyone can memorize a sequence. It's who you become along the way that people are going to be attracted to. It's your most authentic self that will draw people to you. Not only filling your classes, but filling your life". And that is where the journey began. What I learned about myself during my teacher training completely turned my world around. I began to live outside my little bubble and started to see the bigger picture." Stef
