Uncovering the Oasis Within - Restorative Yoga CET with Gabrielle Mendoza

About the Training

Open to all individuals looking to further their practice in the art of conscious relaxation, aspiring yoga teachers and existing teachers seeking specialisation in Restorative Yoga.


This 3-option program offers a framework for you to apply the required skills and knowledge of anatomy and science that facilitate a safer and more enriching practice, which can help to empower both you and your students with greater confidence in your yoga journey. 


This journey is more than just about unwinding from stress and understanding how the nervous system works -- it is about taking that step to heal yourself by unearthing your triggers, understanding your inclinations and tendencies through pausing and observing during meditation, and stepping into your power through the process of returning to the nourishment of homeostasis. 


If it is your calling to make a difference in a world where looking after one's mental well-being could do with prioritisation, you are invited to join the movement. 


15-Hour Weekend Immersion

This 15-hour weekend immersion will cover modules 1 to 4, and is suitable for enthusiasts looking to better understand the science and subtleties of Restorative Yoga, and how it can be utlised as a means to manage their stress, and care for their physical, mental and emotional well-being. Find out how to fine-tune your propping skills to better cater to your own practice, and have the opportunity to venture into an in-depth exploration of the practice through theoretical and practical ways of learning.  


30-Hour CET Program Training Summary 

The 30-hour CET programme will cover modules 1 to 6, is suitable for yoga practitioners to better understand the science behind Restorative Yoga, and how it is taught, so as to better develop their personal practice of intentional rest. It will also fundamentally equip someone who is looking to deliver a Restorative Yoga practice - whether in a private, home, or casual setting - with the breadth of hard skills and tools needed to offer a basic experience.

50-Hour Programme Training Summary 


The 50-hour CET programme will cover modules 1 to 8, and fully equip regular practitioners of Restorative Yoga, as well as aspiring teachers who are looking to teach Restorative Yoga - whether in a private or commercial sense - with the breadth of soft and hard skills to deliver a comprehensive experience.


Aligned with what Gabrielle uniquely brings to her Restorative Yoga classes, she will be imparting skills relating to the Art of Holding Space, Therapeutic Adjustments, fundamental concepts of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and how to seamlessly weave its guiding principles into a crafted practice that will provide direction towards holistic healing. In this programme, we will also learn how to use additional props and craft that will enhance relaxation such as weighted sandbags, eye-pillows, and singing bowls. The use of wall rope and the Iyengar chair will be incorporated so you can provide multiple avenues of relaxation in your restorative yoga offerings. 


With an additional 20-hours in the longer program comes the chance for the participant to deliver group practice teaching and receive valuable feedback from peers and the trainer, which is crucial, yet so often neglected in training programs. These additional sessions will provide the time required to do deeper study, experience poses with varied propping, and discuss practical observations and considerations.


In line with the growing demand for online teaching, this additional module will be presented to help one clearly distinguish the differences, challenges and concessions to cater for in this clearly distinct field.


The demands of private yoga differ considerably, and a deeper insight into how to cater to the differing needs of private clients will give you the confidence to hold space for someone who might be needing this one-to-one down time to seek solace, or cater for injuries and limitations that require technical know-how in one’s approach.

  • Group Practice Teaching - 60min

  • Online Class Presentation - 60min 

  • Key differentiation for conducting a Restorative Yoga class online

About Gabrielle

Gabrielle crumbled under the stress of the corporate world and reclaimed her lost self through yoga. She now follows her dharma, helping others to manage their stress through the means of mindfulness, meditation, and the discipline of yoga.


The practice of restorative yoga has enabled her to intentionally implement boundaries to protect her energy, check in with her nervous system in order to skillfully pause and reset, and become aware of any tension-holding patterns.

These abilities have served her well in unearthing the root causes of the stressors in her life, and she hopes that people will take time to discover and benefit from this non-medical approach that can invite harmony and restoration into their lives.


Over the past 7 years Gabrielle has had the opportunity to teach, on a full-time basis, a variety of Restorative Yoga classes including in-studio, workshop and online experiences. On top of that, Gabrielle conducts monthly group private classes where she incorporates either sound therapy or the use of wall rope to help practitioners to explore different avenues of relaxation. Her skills in acupressure release and know-how in yoga therapy has helped many a private client to cater for injuries and limitations, while feeling safe in their own body to wind down and seek solace.


She is also a presenter for PURE Yoga Singapore, where she enters corporate work settings and presents at seminars to deliver Yoga, Mindfulness and Meditation programs.
