Restorative Yoga Immersion

The Restorative Yoga module is part of our Art of Chill series: An Immersion and Self Care Experience for Yoga Teachers.Each module will include the opportunity for teachers to be nourished and immersed in the practice as a student first. Teachers will leave with clear ways to cultivate a home practice. Additionally, expect to walk away from each module ready to incorporate into flow classes or teach as a stand-alone class.

This is part of our CEU program, designed to give teachers who currently hold a 200/500 certification additional tools to create chill space for self and students.

People come to yoga for many reasons. As life becomes more and more stressful and seeming disconnected, more people are coming to the yoga mat, not for a “work out”, but a “work in”. As more and more feel like they are running on fumes, yoga students and teachers alike look for a yoga practice that is nourishing, easeful, and allows room to be vs. do.


Restorative Yoga offers opportunities to process emotions, release tension, and find clarity on the mat. The result is often a more integrated connection to the self, more ease+ energy, and a greater sense of wellbeing.
Restorative Yoga is a subtle and chill practice that requires a different teaching skill set than more active styles. Yoga teachers of all traditions are invited to attend this training in order to learn more about this nurturing, nourishing style of yoga that is beneficial for students at all levels.
Sacred Chill {West}’s Restorative Yoga with Octavia Raheem is designed for Yoga Teachers who are looking to incorporate this chill style into their classes or for those wanting to deepen a personal practice. In this 15-hour course, you will learn:
