      About this trip

      SKY TING is pleased to bring back Abby Paloma’s Restorative Yoga Level 1 Teacher Training this Spring with option to be in person or learning on Zoom! More and more students are taking an interest in Restorative Yoga, a healing practice for stressful times. Abby Paloma has skillfully trained hundreds of teachers in the art of Restorative Yoga, and with the added expertise of 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.

      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.

      WOWWWWWW - it's three days later and I'm still absolutely buzzing from Chelsey's training!! I knew that I was going to have a great time and learn a ton, but this completely surpassed my expectations. 17/10. Chelsey is an incredible teacher in so many ways - yogis and athletes of all experience levels, ages, and body types will greatly benefit from working with her. I can say with certainty that this five hour micro session has ALREADY made me a stronger teacher; my students have been blown away by the additional insights I've been able to weave in. Transcending the physical - wow. Chelsey has an amazing capacity to hold space and make everyone feel not only seen but valued. I can't wait to keep learning from her and the other amazing Sky Ting teachers as I continue to immerse myself in Nevine's magic. From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU ALL!!!! xoxoxo Maureen (Mo) Flynn

      I can’t recommend this course enough! I loved learning about new ways of dealing with trauma, anxiety, or even daily stressors. I have taken away so many tools that I learned in this course that I continue to use on a daily basis. Francesca is a knowledge guide in these modalities and created a comfortable environment for everyone to feel open to share and practice. If you are going through a tough time, on a healing journey or just curious of learning about new ways of healing yourself then this course is for you 😊

      I had a great time on this trip, but have been on another yoga retreat (in Tulum) that felt more organized. I loved flowing with Francesca and Brian, but felt other aspects could have been better. For example, I have a gluten allergy and it seemed like none of the servers even knew what gluten free was- they kept giving me vegan meals. (Compared to my last trip in Tulum where the chefs and staff went above and beyond to make sure my food was prepared separately and given to me every meal). This made me feel like a burden to the group, even though I mentioned this allergy before going. In addition, I had to wait at the airport alone for 2 hours before the rest of my travel group arrived. I reached out to sky ting about not wanting to be at the airport alone for this long, but they didn't help me. I didn't feel safe alone at the Cancun airport for that amount of time, and if I knew ahead of time this would be the situation, I would have organized my own transportation. I know others had trouble with their airport shuttle too. In addition, it was a solid hour from when I landed until I was contacted by my driver (who spoke 0 english). The hotel was good for the most part, but they were weird about giving us more water (!?) and towels, and there was no storage for our clothing. Overall a great retreat and great yoga, but felt certain aspects could have been better organized.

      We had a fantastic experience. the hotel was lovely and set amidst the Tulum Archeological Zone, which was a perfect setting for the yoga practice. the food was healthy, plentiful and tasty. the support staff were extremely accommodating. our yoga teachers, francesca and brian mixed it up in the classes in a delightful way and the yogis all seemed to get along like we were at summer camp! really enjoyable overall.
