Restorative Yoga &Yoga Nidra Teacher Training

with Taryn Diamond


Over two weekends, choose your own adventure & dive into an understanding of yoga’s subtle practices


Yoga boasts a wealth of subtle practices, the kind that surprise one with their efficacy and simplicity. This training invites participants into a relationship with two of yoga’s subtle gems: Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra. Walk away with both the confidence and excitement to offer these practices to yourself, your family or your students. This program is about more than becoming a restorative and nidra teacher, this is about equipping you with the know-how to rest and relieve stress. Restorative and yoga nidra are effective tools for new parents, caregivers, seasoned students and instructors alike. This program is one-of-a-kind and barrier-free: all bodies, all levels of experience (including none!) are welcomed.

Divided into two weekends, Taryn offers a comprehensive introduction to restorative yoga and yoga nidra. The program will:

  • ground the modalities of restorative yoga and yoga nidra within the larger context of yoga philosophy;
  • train you in teaching eleven restorative yoga postures, their modifications, and restorative yoga sequencing;
  • teach the basics of anatomical movements to better enable you to see bodies and assess structure and postures to maximize rest;
  • allow you to define your own teaching steps and to practice teaching poses in sequence;
  • train you in teaching the art of yoga nidra, including leading in-person and online classes, best practices and script preparation;
  • equip participants with the tools to walk away and teach a restorative class, and enhance their asana classes with restorative/nidra practices;
  • empower participants with stress-reduction tools including simple breath work and gentle movement.
For the first time ever, you choose your adventure by joining Taryn for one or both weekends.
