This 30hr mini training is an expansion of the 12hr training that sold out earlier this spring.
There were requests for a longer more in depth training so here it is!
Similar themes and topics will be discussed but in more depth, We will explore in more detail the growing field of trauma informed yoga and how we can continue to grow as teachers in our ability to hold space for those who may be healing from a variety of physical, mental, emotional or spiritual issues, essentially qualifying ourselves to be of service to those who need it most.
More and more, what I find teaching out in the community and talking to people from all different walks of life, is a need and desire for a yoga that is less physically demanding and more about finding mental and emotional peace of mind; a yoga that is more widely accessible so that all kinds of people in all kinds of situations can reap the rewards that yoga brings, even if they have limitations of some kind.
There is not one cookie cutter form of yoga, yoga can be adapted infinitely to the individual and it should be. People practicing yoga should be empowered to make their own choices and to find a way of moving, breathing and being that honours their own unique needs. Our job as compassionate teachers and/or therapists is to create this sense of empowerment and provide the safe space in which people can feel comfortable to come and do whatever "work" they are there to do.
The style of teaching gentle and restorative yoga I will present to you is based on years of teaching and training. It is a way that incorporates many aspects of yoga, not only postures, but everything from breath, to guided relaxation, meditation and mudra and addresses each person as a whole. We will discuss the effects of each technique and how to create the favourable environment people are looking for to rest and restore their wellbeing.

Testimonials from our April 2017 training:
"My recent participation in Angie’s Restorative Course was everything I had hoped it would be and more. Angie has this wonderful calming manner and a wealth of knowledge in this area. The information was taught so well, and we were able to practice the poses in class and also have time to practice in group settings. The training provided me with a solid foundation that I can use to teach a restorative class. The knowledge I have gained will help me in my regular class for grounding, voice control, and making my students feel that they are in the right place. Thank you for sharing your knowledge." - Tracy Mourre
I took a mini Restorative Yoga Teacher Training taught by Angie in April of 2017. This was to help me learn more about gentle and restorative yoga practices and how to relate them to students or interested people. But more importantly to evolve it in my own life. I have only been doing yoga for a little over a year and a half now but have found myself drawn back to the restorative practices time after time. Even doing a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training did not lead me away from my gentle practice. I find this is in large part to Angie's knowledge and skill in this area. Her classes and training's are inclusive of both the beginner and the yoga expert. If one is seeking help with an injury either emotionally or physically, Angie's practices and classes are fantastic! If it is the pursuit of knowledge and experience in gentle and restorative practices for teaching or to develop your own home practice I would have to recommend Angie! Thank you, Angie for all the wonderful work you do and your willingness to share it with the us! charles
I attended Angie’s Restorative yoga teacher training this spring and was extremely pleased with the classes. I have been working with a marginalized population that may not ever have the opportunity to experience yoga. Angie’s teacher training gave me practical and gentle adaptations to share in my classes. The training sessions were informative, easy to understand and taught skills in a way that was both fun and relaxing.
I have practiced yoga for 15 years and I can honestly say that Angie has such a gift in her teachings, whether it is in her yoga classes or her formal training.
I would recommend Angie’s teacher training to anyone who would like to further their skills in practice or with teaching, it was truly a beautiful experience to have been a part of. Thank you Angie.
" I had the good fortune to learn from Angie, on a mini restorative training that she provided. Her style of teaching a class is just so natural and inclusive that I could not help but want to learn " the secrets of her style". There is so much information for her to share, her knowledge is vast and her approach is very thorough. I enjoyed all of it and would train with her again when the opportunity allows" Barbara
