 Here is what some of the trainees experienced:


"The format of the 2-stage course worked well to teach me something new, practice, give me confidence to develop my own classes, & inspire me to share with others. Cathie teaches from the heart, with the warmth of a new friend, but the discipline of a respected teacher, to ensure the students receive the full value of interactive class participation, whether it be for their own use or the intention to teach others."

Lynn Davies (Nurse)


"The Restorative level 1 training exceeded my expectations on both a personal and professional level. I gained greater awareness of my own body and breath, which gave me revitalized enthusiasm towards my own practice. I also gained great insight on how to teach restorative yoga, using a process that creates a heavenly experience for students. Cathie is very generous in sharing her 30 years of experience in yoga and her love for restorative. I would highly recommend this course to any teacher, student or member of the general public. The knowledge received was life changing for me and I look forward to level 2!"

  Jasmine Lewis (Yoga Teacher)


" Just wanted to share my experience with you after my very first restorative session. It was a one on one. This person had a vulnerable experience thanks to the 5 fundamentals as they were able to feel safe, supported and able to allow for emotions to surface. Emotions that they had not experienced for many many years.  I felt such compassion and loving kindness during the session and the energy was wonderful..truly humbled by the experience. I am so grateful for having met you and have the training with you, and for all your teachings that allows me to offer Restorative practices and to create a space for others to experience, feel, restore.Thank You, thank you thank you.xx

Hi I'm Cathie, I have formulated a series of two 25 hour emersions into to developing a Restorative Lifestyle. One that sustains our physical, mental and emotional bodies. Even more important our connection to inner source. After being subjected to Trauma from an early age to teens, (PTSD) I found Yoga and Meditation. It has brought profound changes to my health and wellbeing, my thoughts and feelings. It has given me the tools to reach for when I feel myself triggered through the senses and the feelings of the past rise. Through the guidance of my inner wisdom I have been led here now to share it with you so you can share it with others in various ways to support a positive healthy interaction to life.


You can go onto the Group Page on Facebook and gather up great tips and stories on how you can improve your lifestyle and transform stress into stillness and develop more presence in your life for Free!

Or if you feel inspired to learn more see further info below. I am only an email or a call away and there to assist you with any questions you have about the two courses........ Cathie                        


What is Restorative Yoga?

Restorative Yoga is becoming increasingly popular as a source of Deep Relaxation and Self Enquiry often the most difficult of skills to master. Using the principles of support/sublime positioning, meditation, guided visualisation/relaxation, breathing well, you are guided into relaxation/mindfulness. Yoga and its associated practises are being used by Doctors, Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Nurses and other Allied Health practitioners. Because it works! 


With anxiety, depression & adrenal exhaustion becoming common health issues effecting people's energy and ability to cope with living a work-life-balance, the importance to learn how to overcome stress is essential to good health. Further studies in nuero science are showing how we can change and reverse the effects of stress to enhance our state of health and wellbeing. Restorative practices and enquiry do just that. Restorative Yoga is a practical and effective way to reduce stress and aid the body's natural healing to take place for a wide variety of physical, mental and emotional health concerns. Studies in Relaxation and meditation reveal the associated practices to achieve this are necessary to reset the body's Flight Flight Response to withdraw and the Rest and Digest Response to Restore.


After using various applications of Yoga since 1992, I have chosen the most adaptable practices integrating these to create two weekend Workshop style courses. Part one 2.5 days covers setting up, Principles and application of Restorative Practices, Yoga Positions, learning basic principles of breathing, Mudra, Assisting and Adjusting, Natural Healing, Intention, Awareness, Meditation/self-enquiry and progressive Relaxation. Part 2 includes Principles and applications of Yoga Nidra/progressive relaxation with the emphasis on Guided Visualisation. Meditation/contemplation, applying specific breath practices for various health conditions. Both weekends include a guide on how to use apply and teach. Both weekends inter relate and integrate together as a whole Restorative Lifestyle package, you can start either anytime. You will receive your first module on line so you can begin understanding what Restorative Integral practices are.



Is supportive for personal transformation and Healing. The full training is covered over 2 x 2.5 days and you can choose to commence in any level.

Why train with me?

I've had 24 years practicing Yoga and Meditation. Along with 28 years in the Natural Therapy industry. I have a wealth of knowledge and shares it generously. My intention is to help you restore and guide towards a greater community where people can relax and take charge of their lives.
