Restorative Yoga
Teacher Training 

with Tamara Skyhawk

Offer the deep relaxation people are craving. 

Relaxation practices are in demand more than ever before. There is desire and a deep need for them.

As a certified Restorative Yoga Teacher, you'll be able to give people what they're looking for – deep relaxation and restorative rest. Learn to guide them safely and knowledgeably in soothing yoga poses, using a range of props for support. 

Uniquely focused on energy.

With stress comes exhaustion. A unique aspect of this Restorative Yoga training is its special focus on helping people conserve, cultivate and improve flow of energy (prana) while practicing Restorative Yoga. 

Not only will you learn how to teach many Restorative Yoga poses, you'll also learn how to sequence and add elements for energetic benefit.

Join live online or in studio.

Choose what works for you – join us live online via zoom, or in person at our Skyhawk Yoga studio in Binbrook, Ontario.


Our time zone is EST and all of our live online classes will be recorded for your convenience.

Your Guide: Tamara Skyhawk 

For over 25 years, I've been immersed in learning about and teaching relaxation practices, yoga and meditation. I've spent tens of thousands of hours doing it, and I'm thrilled to share what I've learned with you.

In this course, I'll share my knowledge as a yoga teacher, teacher trainer and studio owner. Most importantly, I'll share my personal experience – which I believe is the heart of any yoga teacher, healer or wellness professional's unique gifts.

I've been fortunate to learn from some of the world’s foremost Yoga and meditation experts in Canada and India, including Restorative Yoga leaders, Judith Hanson Lasater and Cyndi Lee.

Previous to teaching at my studio, Skyhawk Yoga, I was a teacher trainer for one of India's most prominent yoga schools.

I am also the author of several inspirational books, including the bestsellers: Yoga Nidra Scripts, Hot Stone Restorative Yoga, and Minute Meditations for Everyday Calm.

Looking forward to meeting you!

This course provided more than your typical restorative yoga teacher training. Tamara goes one step further and teaches how to increase prana. Tamara's experience, knowledge, and expertise makes her courses worth it. She produces excellent curriculum, provides a well-written and illustrated manual, and gives her students the opportunity to teach during the course, building confidence and giving gentle corrections and guidance when needed.

I am very grateful for the opportunity to study Restorative Yoga with Skyhawk Yoga. It's always more than what you think when I choose to study with Tamara and Rahul - in the best way! I've never felt like just another person with them and recommend them full heartedly as yoga teachers and trainers.
