Restorative Yoga Teacher Training Level 1 – Foundations

"Take a rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop. "     -    Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)

Do you feel that you're trying to find a balance but your scale is often tipped to the stress side? Do you feel like you are a ticking time-bomb ready to go off any minute? Do you feel like you are running on empty or have been through a traumatic event?

There are several techniques and levels of relaxation and many studies documented on the effects of relaxation in the body.  Many of us walk around with unconscious stress in our shoulders, belly, back or other part of the body, not aware of the degrees to which these areas are tense.  Most of us cannot complete our daily to-do tasks and are often overburdened will responsibilities of family, work and life.

If you feel any or all of the above, then this training is for you.  Learn everything you need to know about the grounding and inherently restful practice of Restorative Yoga.  This training can be undertaken by yoga teachers, physical therapists, body workers, nurses, or anyone interested to incorporate restorative yoga into their person lives.

I recently completed my Restorative Yoga Teacher Training with Pritpal Singh @ Mind To Body Yoga & Fitness. I highly recommend this studio to anyone who may be interested in yoga certifications, upgrading courses or to simply enjoy the practice & benefits of yoga. The studio itself is very clean, calming & roomy; any props required are available for use for free. Pritpal was an amazing teacher; she is knowledgeable, interesting, witty, kind & patient. Her warm manner was infectious! Her demonstrations & notes were easy to follow & understand. Originally, I dreaded spending an entire weekend in class but, to my surprise, the training was so enjoyable & interesting that it seemed to be over in the blink of an eye & I ended up wishing it lasted longer! Many thanks for your exceptional guidance Pritpal!

I was in search of a yoga teacher training program and stumbled upon Mind to Body....its become my second home ever since. The yoga teacher training program was very detail oriented and definitely prepared for my yoga journey. They covered a lot of topics like anatomy and basics of ayurveda as well. I continue to attend regular yoga classes there now. They offer many various different types of favs are the restorative and yin classes. The staff is very inviting and friendly and the studio is very very clean and well maintained. Oh yea...can't forget the complimentary delicious detox tea i have every time i attend a class is a bonus!!read more

The mind to body yoga teacher training program was a life changing experience. Not only were we taught the foundations of yoga practice, we were also given the opportunity to form relationships with a variety of yogis. I have grown in confidence since started this program and look forward to start teaching and sharing the joy instilled in me with others. Thank you mind to body!read more

If I could give Mind to Body more than 5 stars I would! Since starting at this studio 6 months ago, all my aches and pains have been eliminated. That's due to yoga but more so thanks to the personable, caring, passionate and dedicated instructors. It's a blessing to have found a yoga studio where each class by any instructor here is taught with so much passion and bring their own experiences and way of teaching, teaching the right techniques and foundations of poses (grounding feet and hands) alot of others overlook when teaching. They don't ever ever ever make you feel like you have to do a pose they always tell you to follow your body. Love the variety of classes, started with Restorative yoga and now on to hot detox yoga which I didn't ever think I'd do. Mind to body has a great community of employees and members who are always friendly with a huge smile on their faces. It's been so great to connect with other members especially while having the detox tea, yum! Honestly don't know how they keep it so clean with so many members but it's immaculate and shiny. Floors are always swept and mopped constantly. Couldn't have found a more amazing yoga studio, love you guys for all that you do! It's definitely been a life changing process and I'm excited to continue to grow in every way with all of you :).read more
