PRAISE FOR MITCH:
“Keep teaching Restorative. The world needs what you have to offer.” Lizzie Lasater, International Restorative Yoga teacher trainer 2018.
“This was such a great embodied training. I loved having time & space to experience each pose, the de-briefs, the detailed teaching tips and repetition of key facts, AND the great marketing info. Mitch was so generous with her knowledge. It definitely was time and money well spent.”
Sallyann, Yoga teacher & 2018 Restorative Training participant.
“Mitch’s Restorative training delivered everything it promised, and more. There was a beautiful flow to the course - and the emphasis on small details that make a lot of difference, was great. It’s taken my Restorative practice to a whole new level, and given me the confidence to teach soon.”
Deb, Yoga student & 2018 Restorative Training participant.
“I loved the small group dynamic & sharing/deconstructing time - which really showcased the information’s real world application. I enjoyed the later starts - and Mitch’s great vocabulary & teaching cues. ”
