Gentle Strength Yoga Teacher Training

Gentle doesn't mean easy

Anyone who loves Gentle Yoga will tell you it's not easy. And when it comes to teaching this increasingly popular style, there's a lot to consider and manage simultaneously.

Gentle Strength Yoga is a mindful practice that falls somewhere between a Level 1 and Restorative class. By incorporating active work to build strength and mobility, simple breath and meditation practices, while also carving out ample time and space to rest deeply in comfortably supported restorative poses, this holistic yet practical approach offers a satisfying balance to students of all stages of life and levels of fitness.
