In this training, we’ll explore the why behind the practice of restorative yoga, and learn to teach some of the most effective poses in the restorative library. We’ll discuss teaching from a trauma-informed lens, share our favorite breath and mindfulness practices, and explore sound healing. Most of all, we’ll help you find your unique voice as a teacher, and teach from your heart. Come flourish with us!

About the instructor: Sarah Hyde

Sarah Hyde


I became a yoga student in 2012, at a time when anxiety and depression were taking over my life. I’ve always enjoyed a good, sweaty workout, but I was looking for something more contemplative, something physically challenging that would also support me on my inward journey of healing and growth. My sister (who is a yoga teacher) convinced me that yoga could help, and it hasn’t just helped, it’s changed me and made my life so much richer in ways I could not even have predicted. When nothing else can quiet the mind or still the body, coming to your mat can. All you have to do is show up.

Despite a fear of being upside-down (I didn’t even do cartwheels as a kid), I signed up for the Sangha Yoga Sat Guru 200 hour teacher training. Becoming a teacher has deepened my practice and given me the opportunity to share my love of yoga with others, many of whom may never have tried it or had access to it before. I practice vinyasa, hatha, yin and restorative yoga and am currently enrolled in Sangha’s Yin Yoga 50 hour training. I teach a strong physical practice, rooted in all eight limbs of yoga, with a focus on breath and body connection and listening to and honoring your own body and what it needs. Also, I will laugh in my class, and I hope you laugh with me!
