This Yoga Alliance International course is open to Yoga teachers from any school, and to students who wish to learn more, deepen their practice, and better understand their body and the effects of stress.
Places limited to 10.
This training has been carefully designed to give you the best tools and most up-to-date information on the physiological and mental effects of stress and to ways to understand the vital necessity of balance in our life.
New in 2024, we’re changing format to offer you more connection and opportunities to dive deep into the universe of Yoga, learn, and bond with other participants. This course will be held as an intensive week in Normandy in our Retreat Space (more info below).
Each day you’ll practice 2 slow, nourishing Restorative Yoga & soft Pranayama practices. Workshops and theory sessions will give you the knowledge to guide your students with confidence, softness and care. Or to tune in effortlessly to your own practice.
Our teaching style is passionate, curiosity-focused, accessible and non-judgemental. We draw on our years of experience to enable you to teach the people in front of you, adapting to their needs. We hope to light the flame of inspiration, education and motivation in you, to make your own choices as teachers and students and to encourage your own students to walk their own path of practice.
A few topics covered
- Anatomy of the nervous system
- The effects of stress
- Asana Lab’ on Restorative Yoga poses
- Concepts of TCM
- Techniques of meditation, visualisation and pranayama

- Principles of Restorative Yoga
Starting on our 2024 training session, you can enjoy a weekend-long immersion in our retreat centre in Normandy.
The Retreat Space is currently undergoing renovations and we are creating the website as you read this. Photos and information will come very soon (and be sent to training participants!).
This new format is designed to offer you more opportunities to dive deep into the universe of Yoga, learn, teach, create, rest, play and form more profound and meaningful connections with other participants and teachers.
Here, you will be accommodated in our quiet, beautiful house in a peaceful village just over 2 hours from Paris. Your meals will be prepared (with love) for you: healthy, delicious, and gourmet recipes that bring people together around the table to share, connect and enjoy the food, and the company. Our country garden is accessible to you for a quiet time out, a reconnection with Nature, evenings around the fire pit, star-gazing, sun-bathing (weather permitted!)…
We really believe that this addition to our trainings will take your experience to the next level. Providing you with time, space and atmosphere to build in confidence, find your teaching style, rest your mind and body and, so important, create connection with the other participants and Nature around us.
Open to Yoga teachers (or those in training), but also to yoga students who wish to deepend their practice.
