  • I learned so much from Ann's restorative yoga teacher training, it seems like far more than two weekends worth. The pace and volume of information was great, with ample time for class discussion and hands on practice. By the end of training and project completion, I felt fully equipped to integrate restorative yoga in my classes. Adding this layer has deepened my personal practice, and transformed my service as a conduit of wellness for others.

  • I have taken two prior 200 hr YTT programs. In each school I gained valuable tools to help me become a solid teacher. There was something significantly different about Dr. Biasetti's restorative TT. It was empowering, intelligent, and gave me the knowledge to teach a smart, beneficial class. Ann is a forward thinker in her approach and delivery of restorative yoga. You'd be hard pressed to find anyone more knowledgeable and passionate about this practice."

  • Through taking restorative yoga with Ann I learned new and different ways of looking at an individual body in order to recognize both physical and energetic qualities that I had not been aware of before. It feels as if I have been to a really good eye doctor who finally put the correct lenses in my glasses after years of blurry vision. I realized there was so much information available to me that I just wasn't seeing before. My new 'lenses' are invaluable to me as a yoga teacher and as a mother."

  • "Ann's passion for restorative yoga is infectious. After her training I felt energized and ready to integrate her teachings into my personal practice, my yoga teaching and my life."

  • "Ann's training has been an amazing asset to my knowledge and teaching of restorative yoga. Ann is an amazing instructor/trainer who shares her knowledge and benefits of this practice on a deep, detailed level. As an instructor, I feel confident to share this practice with my clients."

  • Ann has a way of integrating complex information and setting the stage for trainees to learn more than they realized within the training weekends, and prepare them well to become solid practitioners. She is exceptionally talented and knowledgeable in this beautiful art of restorative yoga. We are fortunate to have her as our teacher, mentor and guide.

  • Prepare to learn to teach a beautiful and transformative work but also prepare to be transformed yourself in how you relate to your body, in your awareness of self, and in how to become more present every day.
