Restorative Yoga Teacher Training - Postponed New Date TBA

We are positioning this Training. New Date TBA


Restorative Yoga and Deep Listening is a weekend long program that draws upon subtle energy awareness and experience to bring each student into new layers of understanding. Using asana, pranayama, meditation, visualization, ecology, and art the practitioner/student can construct an individual recovery processes that speak directly to their needs. This training will encourage each student to guide and be guided in a restorative fashion. Throughout the weekend students will explore physical and energetic methods; using linguistics and presence to set the tone. Hands-on & hands-off adjustments, sequencing for affects, traditional & modern adaptations, lecture & discussion, and art & nature moments will be called into focus, giving the students a secure, but varied foundation to teach and/or deepen their personal practice.

**This training is recognized by Yoga Alliance and is eligible for Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) - 20 contact hours + 12 non-contact hours = 32 hours in total.

This training is designed for new and experienced yoga instructors, as well as students who have a sincere interest in deepening their understanding behind the mechanics of restorative yoga. This training also lends itself to health care professionals (nurses/doctors), personal trainers, physical therapists, care-takers, body-workers, and/or counselors/coaches.


Gracie is a mid-west based yoga instructor who believes in the evolution of the human practice. Her teaching blends together elements from ecology, dance, and ceramics; using an interdisciplinary approach to connect with students and colleagues. Her attention to energetic detail is a defining quality in her work and instruction.

Most of Gracie's classes are slow paced allowing the student to organize their brain, body, and breath inside each posture. With special focus on the breath, Gracie encourages each practitioner to converse with the circuitry of their structures, body and environment.

Gracie received her RYT-200 from Marianne Well’s Yoga School in Costa Rica in 2011 and her Restorative Yoga certification from Leeann Carey in 2013. Gracie has enjoyed studying with Erica Jago & Elena Brower of Art of Attention and Nevine Michaan of Katonah Yoga. Having the privilege to further her teaching experience through various studios, as well as holding retreats in Mexico, Gracie is an E-RYT 200 and a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider (YACEP) as recognized by Yoga Alliance. 


Graciela’s knowledge of yoga and restorative yoga in particular is thorough, intuitive and compassionate. She conveyed the essence as well as the particulars beautifully during our training. Her choice of assignments, the materials provided, and the composition of the three days’ training gave me a solid foundation for my own restorative practice, and the inspiration to share it with other Yogis in the future.

-A. Poston, September 2017

If we have good fortune, we meet teachers who embody their craft. If we are blessed we know one or two who impart through their passions and their actions, their skills. Graciela passes on a legacy of listening deeply to  self, other, and the connection which is the Self. Layer by layer, breath by breath Gracie embraces each student’s capacity to Restore Self. A five star course. 

-Kirt, J. Baab, LMSW, ERYT-200, March 2018

Gracie’s restorative yoga: deep listening training was one of the highlights of my year. It felt like a yoga retreat, was my favorite workshop/training I’ve ever attended, and by the culmination I felt more connected to everyone there and to myself. What a gift!
