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 poses with confidence and ease, both in a group setting and to one-on-one clients.

Tara Lemerise’s Rest For All Restorative Training is incredibly comprehensive. She covers everything an instructor needs to lead a well sequenced restorative class, from anatomy and why we need restorative yoga to setting up poses with props to how to sequence and even offered music selections. Not only does she make it informative and interesting but fun as well! It was time well spent!

This training is ideal for:

Tara’s Restorative Teacher Training was thoughtful, engaging, and enlightening, with the perfect balance of discussion and practice. Her materials are informative and easy to use and the training structure started us off learning and propping restorative postures and ended with us planning and leading our own restorative class. I am so glad to have taken this training to deepen my own understanding and practice of restorative yoga and to be able to share it with my students!
