Grounded by Yoga uses very specific supported yoga postures, props,  grounding and relaxation techniques,  as well as other elements to create a  profound sense of floating & relaxation. 

Learn to create a 2.15 hour session for a group or private client.

Expect to create an experience, not just a class. Unique program in this part of the state.

Deeply Restorative Yoga techniques are helpful in the treatment of nervous system disorders, such as insomnia, hypertension, anxiety, and general stress.  When the body is fully supported with well-placed blankets, bolsters, blankets, sandbags and more,  it will naturally relax, releasing deeply held tensions, and clearing the path to clarity.

Yoga Sutra 2.46 tells us our postures should be ease-ful and with comfort to find that deep and natural peace within.

This Level 1 Restorative Yoga Teacher Training 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.  Upon completion of the program, participants will be able to create, guide and practice a customized Restorative Yoga practice for themselves and others.

Not a Yoga Teacher? You can still apply for our “Healing through Stillness” certificate.


Restorative Yoga Trainings are also offered as a semi-private or private format at an elevated tuition. 

Level 2 Advanced Restorative Yoga Teacher Training is offered to alumni of this program only. Next one: May 21 & 28 2023

This is an “intensive” and does not operate as our extended trainings do. This will be completely focused on hands on learning and demonstration laced with lecture.

It is required you have experienced a true Restorative Yoga session (certified restorative teacher and minimum 2 hour session). We highly recommend you experience one (or more) of our monthly Deep Restorative sessions before the start of the program. If  you don’t see one on our calendar with availability, just let us know we’ll place one on – they fill quickly.

You will also be required to provide via CD or MP3 music for our second session that is either properly licensed or royalty free.
