Rest for All_ Restorative Yoga Teacher Training .jpg


Some of our students’ deepest experiences of yoga happen when we can give them the opportunity to stop working to control their body and mind and instead help them rest with support, awareness, and intention. The deep, purposeful kind of resting possible with Restorative Yoga can eliminate fatigue, expedite recovery from injuries, ease experiences of anxiety, and develop resistance to the impact of stress on physical and mental health, among other things. This teacher training will provide the tools you need to teach Restorative Yoga poses with confidence and ease, both in a group setting and to one-on-one clients.

This training is eligible for 12 contact hours of continuing education credits with Yoga Alliance, and after completion there are opportunities to join Tara’s apprenticing program. Also inclusive is a spiral bound 30-page Restorative Yoga Teacher Training Manual.
