Welcome to Restorative Yoga training page. Restorative Yoga & Yoga Nidra have never been so important as a Yoga practice and therapy support than now.
I am slowly integrating the current course to include online theory and live streaming along with face to face training.
To get you back on the mat learning about restorative yoga there will be the full Course offering starting in January 2021.
Yoga Nidra will be available online soon, with a live stream component for those outside of South Australia (End of November)
If you would like to begin the training at anytime please email us so we can keep you up to date with the changes. Or read the current prospectus here

WHO IS THIS TRAINING FOR?
My Restorative Wisdom Mission
When I arrived at my darkest of moments, those moments of not wanting to be here, not liking myself, I had to pull it together for I was now a mother and had someone else to answer to, to care for. So I changed my personal Yoga Practice and went back to the first practice that lifted me out of my constant anxiety and personal condemnation:
Yoga Nidra and Restorative Yoga's Child Position (Humble Foetus as I call it in my training program).
These Ancient practices alone created a space and insight to be able to navigate through and towards
healing, it then became the platform as my personal life purpose (Dharma )to do what traditionally has been done and to offer on to others all that has been passed down as effective life skills. The key to all healing is to become relaxed first and foremost, there is no other option...
the importance of self-nurture and self compassion acts as a stabilizer, like strong roots and we fertilise this with practices for specific purposes.
Restorative Yoga practices have become such an important part of my own ongoing healing.
It is my wish and intention as to why this course evolved and continues to evolve.....that eventually there will be a house on every street where the immediate community can join together once a week and practice relaxation. When this happens the "world will find peace".

The format of the 2-stage course worked well to teach me something new, practice, give me confidence to develop my own classes, & inspire me to share with others. Cathie teaches from the heart, with the warmth of a new friend, but the discipline of a respected teacher, to ensure the students receive the full value of interactive class participation, whether it be for their own use or the intention to teach others.
Jasmine Lewis (Yoga Teacher)
The Restorative level 1 training exceeded my expectations on both a personal and professional level. I gained greater awareness of my own body and breath, which gave me revitalised enthusiasm towards my own practice. I also gained great insight on how to teach Restorative Yoga, using a process that creates a heavenly experience for students. Cathie is very generous in sharing her years of experience in yoga and her love for restorative. I would highly recommend this course to any teacher, student or member of the general public. The knowledge received was life changing for me and I look forward to level 2!
Johanna (Massage Therapist / Healer)
Just wanted to share my experience with you after my very first Restorative Session. It was a one on one. This person had a vulnerable experience thanks to the 5 fundamentals as they were able to feel safe, supported and able to allow for emotions to surface. Emotions that they had not experienced for many many years. I felt such compassion and loving kindness during the session and the energy was wonderful..truly humbled by the experience. I am so grateful for having met you and have the training with you, and for all your teachings that allows me to offer Restorative Practices and to create a space for others to experience, feel, restore.Thank You, thank you, thank you. xx
Lara (Yoga Teacher)
I am a qualified Hatha yoga teacher and now have attended, completed and passed both Level 1 and Level 2 and gained the 50 hours of Restorative yoga with Cathie at Spirit of Yoga. It is immediately obvious when sitting with Cathie the depth of her knowledge in this area and her genuine deep love, loyalty and commitment of sharing the practices and her knowledge to those in her class. It is clear her knowledge and wisdom comes not only from her studies but from a deep and long term embodiment of the practices. Cathie is very detailed and thorough and passes down the teachings with meticulous instructions and an air of grace. I can see how adding restorative yoga to my personal practice and sharing with others can start to bring healing and profound transformation. I would highly recommend Cathie at Spirit of Yoga for anyone wanting to expand their yoga practice or teachings to include true and traditional Restorative yoga.
