If you are looking for a course that will enhance your level 1 anatomy knowledge, the restorative course will do it. There is also a section about using yoga props and asana prescriptions for special needs, ailments and illnesses. These may apply more to your middle aged and older students, but they will also be useful for any student who is needs special attention. There are two written exams and a practical exam requirement. My suggestion would be to use the props in your classes. Demonstrate to each student with a prop and without. This makes you more comfortable with the mechanical aspects of teaching students with different types of bodies.
The biggest mistake a yoga teacher can make is trying to make students into cookie cutter figurines. There are too many differences within each person's body. You can't teach yoga completely until you can teach everyone, regardless of their physical ability. The restorative course is a beautiful expansion on the knowledge you learned in your level 1 yoga teacher training course.
Is it useful? YES!
