Restorative Exercise™ Specialist

Becoming a Restorative Exercise Specialist™


To become a Restorative Exercise Specialist, 120 hours of work beyond the whole body course is required. Some of this time can be completed at your “home office”. The rest requires one week at either our home office in Ventura, California or at Pacific North West Facility in Sequim, Washington.

This live “homecoming week” includes multiple exercise sessions a day, 6 private alignment sessions with RE Master Teachers, group business training, internship, and testing.

We take reservations for Practitioner Certificates once you are a minimum of 3 months into the online program (we suggest you view one of the twelve sessions every two weeks to allow for maximal motor skill acquisition).
