RestoraTHAI© Yoga Teacher Training

Restorative Yoga Teacher Training + Thai Massage Basics + Integration

The world needs Restorative Yoga and Thai Massage more now than ever before! 

Unfortunately, anxiety levels are high in most communities after a year of uncertainty and significant change. Among the enormous benefits these practices individually have, they both serve to calm the nervous system and ease the effects of anxiety. Together they are a magical combination.

 

If you're already a certified 200hr Yoga Teacher and seek new ways to offer your client base the immense health and wellness benefits of the yoga, introducing RestoraTHAI to your class list will be a game changer. It will expand your student or client base and provide an offering to a wider range of people.
