About Vanessa Rudge

Being a naturally 'nervy' type, Vanessa came to restorative yoga as a way to manage nervousness.  By experiencing the effects of the 'fight or flight' response from the inside she came to understand the power of yoga to shift the inner state.

From personal experience, she recognised that stress, anxiety and nervousness all have the same effect on the body mind.  Using Restorative Yoga she has been able to overcome the debilitating effects of it and now enjoys sharing this with others.

Having trained in Hypnosis and NLP, her knowledge on the power of language to lead people in a safe supportive way has expanded immensely. She loves teaching these skills to teachers too.

Ancient Teachings
Modern Applications.

Rather than a cerebral understanding, taste the full blown depths of relaxation whilst on retreat. When you go back to teach classes you will naturally draw on this cellular memory.

Like a tuning fork, when you as the teacher 'go there first', you naturally take your students deeper than they have gone before.  

You can only relay this from the depth of your own experience, feelings, sensations, which is why learning Restorative Yoga on Retreat is the most conducive atmosphere.

Prerequisites: This is a post grad, continuing education (25 hour) training for yoga teachers already holding a Level 1 Certificate (200hr or 350hr). 

Interested students are welcome but will be given a certificate of attendance not a teaching certificate.

This training is not enough to run group classes however you can easily integrate the wisdom when working one on one with your current clients.

Here's What Others Are Saying:

"The way in which both Vanessa and Michael teach is inspirational to say the least."  

"I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know more about the "softer" side of yoga, after spending years focusing too much on the physical achievements that can be gained from it. On that weekend retreat, I enjoyed the company of wonderful, friendly, like-minded people, ate delicious food and through Vanessa's nurturing, warm way of sharing and teaching, felt wrapped in a relaxed hug during the entire experience. Thank you!"


Brisbane Yoga Teacher

"I just wanted to say what a fabulous experience the restorative yoga teacher training retreat was . 

Came away not only feeling blissed out, but also a wealth of very practical knowledge.  That can be easily implemented in daily life . 

The course was a stress free environment, which allowed for maximum learning, in a supportive and safe space .

Retreat FAQ:

What should I bring?

  • Your yoga mat
  • Meditation Cushion
  • Any other equipment you regularly use (block, strap etc)
  • A journal & pen
  • A few changes of yoga clothes. You will be practicing some form of yoga both morning and evening.
  • A shawl or t-shirt for covering your shoulders at meal time
  •  Warmer loose fitting casual clothes for the evening sessions
  • Your own towel and toiletries.
  •  Bedding is provided - though in winter you may like to bring extra blankets
  •  Torch may be helpful
  • Insect repellent & sun cream
  •  Wet weather gear if it is forecast - umbrella, gumboots, raincoat
  • When should I arrive?

    Aim to Arrive at Chenrezig at 9.30am. We commence with a yoga class at 10am in the Community Room/Wellbeing Centre on the Thursday/Friday (depending on retreat) morning. 

    Your rooms may not be ready for you so it's best to leave your bags in the car and take them to your room at lunch. If you know that you are staying in the female dorms then you can take your bags directly to the community room.

    Our retreat is held in the Community Room, newly renamed the Wellbeing Centre. There is a map in the carpark for your information.

    Do I have to do everything?

    Absolutely NOT. Everyone is welcomed to yoga, just as they are. This often means that you may be carrying niggling injuries, varying levels of fitness, flexibility and strength. The best thing you can do is to honour yourself, exactly where you are on any given day. Pushing beyond your limits is not generally recommended in yoga. However, there are times when the only way to grow and move forward is to give something a go. You need to become your best judge as to when the time is right. There is plenty of time for nature walks & time off but if you need more you are welcome to take it (Unless this is a Teacher Training Retreat).  The retreat is yours!

    Where can I park?

    There is ample parking at Chenrezig.  When you arrive instead of parking in the first car park, go over a slight rise and into the second car park.  The Wellbeing Centre is accessed directly via a set of stairs DOWN from this car park.

    Leave your bags in the car but bring all your yoga equipment with you.  We usually start with some yoga straight up so it's a good idea to wear yoga gear straight away.

    There is a toilet located via the deck on the left of the Wellbeing centre.
