The 200 Hour Meditation & Restorative Yoga Teacher Training is a comprehensive program, purpose-built for aspiring teachers and serious students who wish to take their understanding of meditation and yoga to a new level. This is your opportunity to join a spiritual journey that will transform your life. A program designed on personal practice and inquiry, as it was meant to be.

We take a very methodical approach and fuse it with your own inner creativity to access the higher limbs of yoga. This is indeed a Yoga Teacher Training…and we will include all the aspects of yoga in the training that align with Yoga Alliance (Yogic Anatomy, Philosophy, Humanities and Ethics, etc). The difference with this program and Hatha Yoga 200 RYT program is we’ll advance into soft, gentle Restorative postures that advanced yogis and new yogis seek. You will depart with the knowledge and ability to teach to ALL radiant beings.

  • FAMILY …our programs create a deep friendship of spiritual family and harmony. Learn with the same small group throughout the entire program.
  • LINEAGE… your lead instructor embraces direct lineage to disciple teachings. Learn authentic & effective practices.
  • ADAPTIVE… all our programs were the first in the area to incorporate adaptive and trauma informed practices. Learn to teach from a vibrant heart.
  • EXPERIENCED.… your lead instructor, Sandy Hicks posses over 45 years of lineage experience and trainings. Learn what works.
  • LIFE… we live it, and so can you. Learn how to incorporate your meditation practice into your daily life from a teacher with decades of experience.
  • CONNECTION...because learning “online” will limit you. The reason for stress is a sense of separation. Connect with like minds and energy.
  • DEMYSTIFY …knowledge of ancient texts, the subtle body and learn to articulate yoga philosophy. Learn non-diluted techniques.
  • RESTORE… its time to slow down and be with life. Learn extremely effective Restorative Yoga postures and marry it up with your Meditation practices.
  • NAVIGATE …the business of yoga and meditation to attract abundance of heart. Learn to live  what you love and love what you live.
  • TEACH…the best teacher is one that arrives as an empty vessel. Fill up, and share. You may simply attend for your own knowledge and evolve-ment.

Join us on this transformational journey, as you deepen your personal practice and develop the essential teaching skills to bring the wisdom of Meditation and Restorative Yoga to your community. A full rounded program accredited by National Yoga Alliance. Our unique and in-depth 200 hour Meditation and Restorative Teaching certificate will enhance your personal practice while cultivating essential teaching skills and expert knowledge, so that you can step out and share these practices. (Guided Imagery Meditation is not yogic meditation. We will learn direct lineage practices developed for transcendence).

"Thank you" is just not a big enough expression to communicate to you how I am feeling about you and your teacher training. I hope that through our future interactions and relationships, I can demonstrate & embody my gratitude. I am awake! How do you thank someone for that? It's a brand new life path opportunity!​

"This was an absolutely awakening and transforming experience. I didn’t necessarily enter this program intending to teach, I thought that I might, but it was more for a deepening of my own practice. I walked away feeling confident in my ability to share this practice with others. Sandy was an amazing teacher and spiritual guide, and I uncovered and learned so much about myself through this process."

"II am honored to be in the company of such a great group of human b try every day to be more peaceful – it is hard to break old habits but I am making a conscious effort. I enrolled to deepen my understanding of yoga – and found out early on that there is so much for me to learn – I’d barely scratched the surface! My primary purpose was for personal learning and teaching yoga was not the main goal. I have to share that as we progress I become more interested in teaching!"
