About the 20-hour Gentle & Restorative Yoga Training

This dynamic and experiential training will teach you to create safe, engaging, and satisfying gentle and restorative yoga poses, principles, and sequences (for yourself and your students!). With a balance of discussion, experiential work, and practice teaching your fellow trainees, you'll come away from this weekend feeling rejuvenated, inspired, and empowered to share what you've learned.

In this training, you'll learn:​

  • why the in-between gentle approach is so important for today's student

  • how to incorporate stronger work in a balanced way

  • the secret to creating a soft practice that isn't one-dimensional

  • the best restorative poses to teach for group classes

  • accessible ways to incorporate breath work and meditation


Break free from your routine and learn a new approach to practice that your students (and your own body) will love! This training will provide you with a new specialty that will make you more versatile as a teacher, while also enhancing and refining your teaching of other styles. And perhaps most importantly, you will come away feeling inspired to apply a gentler approach in your own practice and life - because it's essential to walk the walk as a teacher!

“This was not just a training, it was also a bit of a yoga retreat for me. What a great way to spend the weekend and learn more. Kerry’s teaching was thoughtful, inspiring and trauma-sensitive.”​

2022 Trainee

Kerry provided an excellent balance between content and practice for Restorative and Gentle Yoga.

Given the pandemic, I was able to take this course virtually and Kerry was as attentive to me on the screen as she was with the students in the classroom. I highly recommend this training."​

Kari Foote, 2022 Trainee

“Kerry is such a warm and beautiful spirit who shares her passion for doing less. Her Gentle training facilitated a beautiful way of practicing that has ignited my excitement to teach. I loved this training and would highly recommend!!”​

Erin Thunholm

“I couldn't be more pleased. Following this training, I was immediately able to modify my practice sequences and begin offering kinder, gentler versions of different poses that were accessible to everyone. My own experience of practicing gentle yoga has been greatly enhanced and the feedback I've received from my students has been overwhelmingly positive..”​
