The world today is a stressful place. It’s even more important than ever to find peace and acceptance within ourselves.


Restorative Yoga offers the perfect practice to cultivate and nurture a calm, tranquil core. As teachers, it’s the ideal practice to share with those who need a quiet practice to return to, to recharge their batteries and regenerate their life force.


We are pleased to offer our Advanced Restorative Yoga Teacher Training program to build on skills and practices covered in our Basic RTTC.


Join us for an intensive 15-Hour Advanced Restorative Yoga Teacher training that will give you deeper skills, wisdom, and confidence to continue to share Restorative Yoga with others in a powerful, inspired way.


Sun and Moon’s Advanced Restorative Teacher Training Advanced program provides comprehensive content that builds on the Basic Restorative Yoga Teacher Training with all-new material to help you deepen your yoga and meditation practice, teaching skills, and spiritual development.


This course offers hand-selected content of new restorative yoga poses, meditation techniques and practices, and teaching skills to take your teaching to the next level. It also includes ample time for practice teaching and feedback to help you improve your teaching skills and delivery. An open heart and mind, and the desire to continue to learn, are the very things that help you become a great yoga teacher. Keeping a humble and hungry “beginner’s mind” is the key to evolving personally and professionally. We need to continually build upon our skills to deepen our own practice and offer our students opportunities to go deeper into their practice, too.


We are very excited to offer this course to our graduates, who have been requesting it for years, and look forward to you joining us!
