SKY TING is pleased to bring back Abby Paloma’s Restorative Yoga Teacher Training this Fall! More and more students are taking an interest in Restorative Yoga, a healing practice for stressful times. Abby Paloma has skillfully trained many teachers in the art of Restorative Yoga, and with the added expertise of Ally Bogard and Jessica Caplan, this training will be an in-depth exploration of the tools and techniques of this practice.
Restorative Yoga offers therapeutic tools to balance the nervous system in order to truly rest and replenish energy. States of deep mind and body relaxation are made more accessible through the architecture of restorative poses. Health benefits of a consistent restorative practice include lowered blood pressure and blood sugar levels, reduced insomnia, balanced menstruation, improved digestion, and increased fertility.
In this Restorative Yoga teacher training you will learn and experience:
- The architecture of restorative backbends, forward bends, therapeutic poses, and poses for pregnancy.
- The energetic and physical alignment in the poses.
- How to guide students into states of deep relaxation.
- Teachings about the human nervous system (sympathetic and parasympathetic) and subtle body systems.
- How to structure a Restorative Yoga class, hands-on adjustments, and the role of music/sound.
- Proper, activated breathing patterns and healthy vagal nerve tone with Ally Bogard.
- A sound bath with Jessica Caplan.
This training is open to yoga teachers, health practitioners, and dedicated students. After this training you will be able to skillfully offer your students and private clients a potent and medicinal practice of relaxation. You will be equipped with knowledge of how to incorporate restorative poses into your own practice and your regular asana classes. Restorative Yoga is a gift for yourself. Teaching restorative yoga is a gift for your students. When people partake in this peaceful practice, the whole world stands to benefit.
Calmness and openness are just the kind of embraces one hopes for when deciding to enroll in a restorative yoga teacher training. And this is exactly what you'll get from Abby. Her restorative teacher training is filled with hands-on work, both in setting up postures and in receiving them. The space she creates for learning is the type of space I hope to bring into every class I teach, regardless of the style of yoga.

It was an honor and an inspiration to learn from Abby and her community of genuine, talented and brilliant women. I got more out of this weekend than I could ever have expected. Not only am I prepared to teach a restorative yoga class, I also left with tools to be a more relaxed and restorative human in everyday life. Abby presents her knowledge with such gentle grace and ease; she presents in a nature that is not only effective but also reflective of the practice itself … So much so that I had a huge breakthrough moment in my own ability to relax.

This restorative module was one the best yoga trainings that I've ever taken. It was helpful for my development both as a teacher and as a student. It taught me to be still, to pause, and to rest more. All of the teachers and assistants were knowledgeable and compassionate -- just being in their presence made the weekend worth it.

Abby Paloma has taught yoga compassionately for over a decade. Her teaching style reveres stillness and deep rest as antidotes to our fast-paced and dis-eased modern lifestyles. Abby’s work as a Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine informs her yoga practice and vice versa. Passionate in her study of anatomy and her exploration of how human bodies move, Abby easefully blends theory with practical knowledge.
Each class Abby teaches is distinct, incorporating seasonal changes with keen attentiveness to the needs of every student. Abby often turns to the teachings of the Tao Te Ching and the laws of nature for inspiration. She strives to practice and teach compassion while learning from each student, and facilitates an environment where everyone in the room can learn from one another.
Abby’s list of hobbies include meditation, singing, cooking, strumming ukulele, gardening, shopping at farmers markets, arranging flowers, studying herbs and essential oils, water-coloring, swimming in the ocean, and, of course, resting.
Abby earned her Doctorate in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine and her bachelor’s degree in neuroscience and Jungian psychology from New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study. She is accredited as a 500-hr Yoga Alliance and as an Advanced Restorative Yoga teacher. Abby is grateful to her teachers, including Judith Lasater, Aswad Foster, Elena Brower, Margi Young, Thea Eljiah, Sylvia Boorstein, Barnaby Ruhe, and Mother Nature.
For the past dozen years, Ally Bogard has led classes, retreats, alignment immersions, and 200/500 hour teacher trainings for dedicated students and teachers throughout the land. Co-owner of Canadian-based school Gaiatri Yoga, she teaches with an emphasis on thoughtful alignment and sequencing to allow the physical and energetic body to hold and emit higher frequencies of light and power. Asana, meditation, self-observation, shamanic and prayer-based practices, and time spent in deep nature inform her practice and teaching. For Ally, there is no greater act of creativity than the recreation of the self to be Love.
Training reservations must be canceled at least 5 days in advance for a refund.

The practices and techniques we've developed as what we now call SKY TING YOGA come from many different influences and teachers, and we continue to pull inspiration from yoga lineages, nature, art, and our community. While we're not strict with our style and how our teachers convey the information, it is of utmost importance to us to continue to push the standards of what is expected in a yoga class and what feels most relevant and honest in regard to what is taught in our space.
We've decided to develop this advanced training as a continuing education opportunity for 200-hour grads who are interested in learning and reviewing keystone ideas on sequencing, hands-on adjustments, proper cuing, and finding your voice as a teacher. This is a great way to become more familiar with how we approach teaching open-level classes, how to incorporate different dialogues and philosophies into the classroom, and how to keep your class both playful and safe for students.
