This Restorative Yoga and Meditation Teacher Training doesn’t simply improve one’s personal yoga practice and yoga teachings. It also aims to expand one’s awareness and bring greater attention to the surrounding environment.
These are essential elements to embodying yoga on and off the mat.
Yoga means “union”, and so it offers an opportunity to join the body, mind, and spirit with Mother Earth.
Although this work is not religious, it is a deeply spiritual practice.
This Restorative Yoga and Meditation Teacher Training is done in 4 modules called “Fundamentals” (1, 2 , 3 & 4). Fundamentals need to be followed in order. Each module includes assignments: readings, observing classes, practicing teaching and assisting.
This course is certified by the Yoga Alliance and a certification will be given upon completion.
A complete course syllabus can be found here, which includes the required reading.

“I want to thank you so much for your classes and workshops, it has been amazing for me!!!! THANK YOU. I’m dancing almost every day now, and learning to let go. Your classes really inspired me to keep doing yoga and everything that has to do with it, to stay true to myself and not so much to what everybody else thinks. See you next year!!!! Lots of love.”

“With all my heart: I thank you for what you teach me, give to me and so many others. In class, it is sometimes like you just talk straight to me. You pick up what’s in the air. Unbelievable how you dare to open your heart, be vulnerable, go to your depths to give from there. Out of all your life experiences. You breathe, you open the gate and let people in.”
