YogaFit Restorative

YogaFit’s four­-day Restorative workshop is essential for the yoga therapist to understand how to introduce the profoundly soothing effects of this restful practice to clients and students.

Note: This course fulfills part of the requirements for the YogaFit HealthCare 900-hour certification, as well as the YogaFit 300‐hour teacher training. The one-day YogaFit Props training is part of this four-day workshop.
