Healing Through Stillness

Restorative Yoga Trainings are offered as a semi-private, private, or in our public enrollment. For Private/Semi-private, mutually agreed upon dates and times is established once an application is received.(Note: Semi Private and Private sessions create an elevated tuition.)

These programs are open to all, not just yoga practitioners. Restorative Yoga Teacher Trainings may be used to explore in your own field; perhaps offer to your staff at work, or to your friends and loved ones or simply a wonderful tool for yourself and your family.

Students will receive a CEU Yoga Alliance certificate (fee is included in application fee) upon completion of the program after submission of assignments. This certificate can be used towards continuing education credits with the Yoga Alliance for Yoga Teachers. An immersion by its very nature is designed to be intensive, and practicum completion is due 45 days after end of training.

Upon completion of the program, participants will be able to create, guide and practice a customized Restorative Yoga practice for themselves and others.
