"Ally is so wise beyond her years. The knowledge & wisdom she shares with all her students changes lives for the better. I am growing and receiving light and wisdom because of her. I will be signing up for more trainings with Ally in the future. Tiina has a soft gentle way about her that comes shining through in the way she teaches. She has so much knowledge about yoga and all it has to offer.  Teaching while honouring culture, trauma informed teachings, gratitude, kindness and her beautiful spirit shines bright in the thoughtful she and Ally created this and all their other trainings.I highly recommend this training. Your parasympathetic nervous system will thank you!! I has changed my life, it can change yours too :)"

Restorative yoga is slow and contemplative, using the support of props we exert as little effort as possible and move into a place of deep rest. You can think of restorative yoga effortless in nature and as "yoga for the health of the nervous system”

In this training you will be guided towards deepening your own practice and a philosophy of ongoing self inquiry to bring out your unique gifts in becoming the evolution of your own yoga, even if you choose not to teach yoga classes.

You will learn how to guide methods for developing awareness; facilitating deep states of relaxation and pure abiding consciousness for your students.

"This RYTT was designed with the upmost skill and care. I loved learning more about the practice of restorative yoga and enjoyed how the rich lessons were shared in various modalities. The live classes and gatherings on zoom created a strong sense of community and support, and I felt so deeply nourished by steeping myself in the practice with these mentors and this sangha. I feel what really set this online RYTT apart, is the teachings of the Moon and all of it wisdom it shares with us through each and every phase. The invitations to move and live intentionally, and to soften around whatever is expanding or fading away, have really infused my day-to-day with a greater trust in the intelligence of my being and this life!"

"Restorative Yoga with Ally and Tiina has been the most heart-centred training I’ve ever attended. Informative, inspirational and so nurturing. It has equipped me with the perfect tools to bring this gentle yet powerful medicine to a chronically stressed world. In my practice I work with people suffering from CFS/ME, Fibromyalgia and anxiety and restorative yoga will enhance my practise and help my clients to heal. Well organized, highly progressional, the perfect balance of theory, practice and self-inquiry, this training has been a balm for the soul. Tiina and Ally are true wise angels. I am so grateful."
