About the Online Training
Our newly adapted online course format features a blend of pre-recorded practices and educational resources, alongside live lectures and asana tutorials where you can connect and ask questions in a supportive atmosphere and community.
Students gain access to a digital variation of our extensive self-written textbook, as well as a course container here within eva.yoga which holds all course content, including your practices, lectures, and live-session tutorials. There is also space here to ask questions and connect with our community of teachers around the world. In the course container and a weekly course email, you'll also find the links to our weekly live calls hosted on Zoom. This platform will be your course companion, which you will have access to for one year following your training dates.
The comprehensive course curriculum will be woven throughout four weeks of study. Each Sunday night, guided practices and self-study resources will unlock (approximately 4.5-hrs). This will be complemented by a weekly three-hour live call every Wednesday night from 6:30-9:30pm (Nov 23th, Nov 20th, Nov 27th, & Dec 4th, 2024).
All you'll need is a device with an internet connection with access to zoom, the course container, and your textbook. And your props to to construct restful and supportive poses (see below).
To receive your certification, you will just need to complete a few final assignments. There will be a weekly quiz to check in on your learning process. Then at the end of the course, you'll submit our final online quiz, a sample class plan, and a fifteen minute teaching video. We will return your energy with thoughtful teaching feedback and your Yoga Alliance accredited certificate.

I want to take this course, but I'm not a Yoga Teacher & I'm not very interested in teaching....
Keen students are welcome! Many people take my educational courses for personal interest. There are no pre-requisites for this YTT. Just a love of Restorative Yoga and experience practicing this style.
If you're not interested in teaching professionally, you can still take this course to learn more about Restorative Yoga and build a more dedicated & knowledgable self-practice.
Other people working in the fields of counseling, mental health, chronic pain, etc. may also find this course helpful to support their other areas of work.
I want to take this course, but I'm not a Yoga Teacher (yet). I hope to take my 200-hr training soon but can I do this first?
The answer is yes! Generally in these programs, I get a mix of people who have completed their standard 200-hr Yoga Alliance certification or who are on the path towards it.
All are welcome and there are no prerequisites required.
In fact, I’ve been told by other students in the same situation that they appreciated the foundation they received from my 30-hr YTT's when they then went onward to do their 200. Many felt more confident to pursue further training! In this course, I offer an introduction to the basic anatomy of the spine, hips and shoulders so if you are new to anatomy, you will receive a basic overview. And we create a really warm environment and share lots of foundational information. There’s no energy of competition or judgment.
Can I start teaching after this course if I have not yet completed my standard 200-hr training? If you are yet to complete your 200-hrs, I recommend you begin teaching friends or family for experience or donation. Most studios, as well as yoga insurance providers, will require you to have completed your 200, which I agree is extremely important. But this program can still be a great first step. And you can still log this certificate with the Yoga Alliance to start building your experience. Then when you start teaching professionally, you will already have a niche offering to share.
Are scholarships available for the online teacher training?
Yes ♡ We offer a select number of scholarships to each of our online trainings. Since 2020, we have offered two types of scholarship schemes to support teachers who desire to continue their yoga education with us: our Inclusivity Scholarship for BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ Teachers and our Financial Support Scholarship for yoga professionals feeling the present financial pressures. You can learn more and apply here.
Will I receive CE (continuing education) credits with the Yoga Alliance for this online training?
Yes! Based on the current Yoga Alliance temporary provision, you will receive a full 30-hrs of CE credits for this course (provided you complete your two homework assignments).
What do I need to complete this training?
Find a spot in your home that's generally quiet with a good wifi signal You'll need a device (laptop, tablet or phone) to access zoom and our course platform. Just a basic zoom account will do! You can film your final practicum on your phone, no professional equipment necessary. Your textbook is a digital file and you can choose to print it or not.
For your yoga props: yoga mat and ideally 2 bolster pillows, 4 blocks, 4 blankets & a strap. I know this seems like a lot! But having these at your fingertips will allow you to learn the dreamiest restorative poses. At minimum, grab a bolster, some bed pillows, two blocks and some thick books, and lots of comfy blankets from around your house.
You may also like an eye pillow, a small hand towel and a sandbad, but these are optional bonuses. You'll also use a chair and some wall space at times.
Will I get a textbook?
You will receive a comprehensive digital Restorative Yoga Textbook emailed to you in advance of the course as a PDF and also downloadable within our course platform. You can print it if that's possible, but if that not an option no stress! A notebook and pens are helpful for extra notes.
What about technical difficulties?
Before the YTT, I individually contact each registrant to make sure they have easy access to all necessary platforms and content.
All of our live calls are recorded and added to our course platform after our sessions. If you get logged out or have any issues, you can access all lectures later to get caught up. Your presence on the calls is still mandatory for certification, but you can just send me a message to let me know if you are having any challenges and I will do my best to support you. I know technical difficulties may arise and will be helpful and understanding.
How long will I have access to the course content?
The course content will be available to you (all tutorial videos, guided practices, and lecture recordings) for a minimum of one year following the YTT.
