We offer a unique teacher mentoring and practicum program and we welcome you to be part of the community.

Join us for multiple “teacher practice” classes and “teacher practice days” and allow your learning to deepen your application as well as your understanding.

We are offering weekly public classes and a teacher learning environment with the focus on peer support and learning together

This group was started by 4 graduates of the Path Yoga Centre’s, 70 hour Restorative Yoga teacher training program as a practicum to directly apply the knowledge into a classroom setting, offer more restorative yoga to the public and build a restorative yoga community

Reconnect:   Reconnect with the work  –   Reconnect with yourself. Supportive for new and seasoned teachers alike

Embody the Practice:   We hold classes as a learning environment for teachers who want to embody the practice of restorative yoga and we invite you to come in and receive a class with us

Slow Yourself Down:   Replenish the connection with yourself, revisit the lost art of listening and make a re-commitment to the practice of slowing yourself down

Refresh:   If you feel called to practice further, we have four progressions to help you grow as a teacher.  Review your training, remember the techniques, remind your hands and refresh your teaching.  Encourage your confidence, practice your skills, bring your questions and build community

Peer Support:   Peer support is so valuable and often missing in the world of yoga today so we have decided to focus on that concept and offer it here is a way of learning to make things accessible, approachable and enjoyable

Reading Body Shapes:   Restorative yoga can have subtleties and intricacies within the variations and it can be supportive for the teacher to unpack them with others and learn together.  Playing with postures and different body shapes supports the teacher in their own experience of digestion and integration

Begin With Us:   Learn as a student – receive a class

  1. Observe a class – hold space and take notes
  2. Assist a class – propping students
  3. Start teaching a partial class – find your feet
  4. Teach your restorative series – share your practice

End With Us:   Build connection – fine tune your skills, enhance your strengths as a teacher and grow your community.

Rekindle your commitment to Savasana and deep rest.  Find your personal practice and give back to your self so you can give back to others.  Find assistants and subs for your future classes.
