All Levels Welcome.

During these 9 days we will explore the principals and philosophy of Yin and Restorative Yoga! The 9 days we spend together will be healing and nurturing for the body, mind and heart. We will prioritize the cultivation of a calmer state of being through daily regenerative practices and activities.

This Yin & Restorative Training is an elective 100 hours of Yandara Yoga Institute's 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program. For those that have their 200 hour Yoga Alliance Certification, this program counts as 100 hours of your 300 hour Yoga Alliance certification, as well as Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Credits (YACEP).

You may also attend this program simply as a regenerative retreat on the beach and to deepen your yin and restorative yoga practice! All levels are welcomed.


Yin and Restorative Yoga are gentle, regenerative practices where all the poses are done on the floor, supported by props, to encourage deep relaxation, a natural opening of the joints and optimal energy flow through the body.

This slow, healing practice is a journey into the heart and soul of your being. It naturally cultivates inner listening, heightened awareness, compassion and acceptance for who you are and where you are in each moment of life.

Our focus is on both Yin and Restorative yoga. You will learn how to effectively teach these two distinct styles.  This training also includes how to teach yang-yin and yang-restorative classes.

Join us as we let go, relax and breathe our way to optimal health and wellness. The Yin-Restorative Yoga Training is ideal for those want to advance their yoga teaching career and certification and also for those who simply want to deepen their own personal practice.
