The antidote to stress is relaxation. Learn to teach skills to restore and renew. So many live in a heightened state of fight or flight which includes tense muscles, elevated heart rate, and adrenal glands working overtime secreting stress hormones. Restorative poses are active relaxation that leads to positive physiological changes. 10-hour training for yoga teachers or any experienced student wishing to offer restorative yoga. *January 29th & 30th, 2022 12:00 – 5:00 pm *Price: $250 or $140 single day *LOCATION: Nurture Yoga, Richmond, IL *Register Here *Completion Certificate  *PDF Training Manual *Yoga Alliance CEU’s

Yamas & Niyamas: The Yogic Way

With Gabriel Halpern

Yoga starts with ‘right living,’ then continues with the postures and other techniques such as pranayama and meditation. The yamas, and their complement, the niyamas, are the first two limbs of the 8-limbed path of yoga. They give students an internal, moral guidebook for how to live a meaningful life. Known as restraints and observances, the yamas and the niyamas are chronicled in the Vedas and also the Yoga Sutras. Renowned teacher Gabriel Halpern will give a lively and uplifting lesson on living in a yogic way. Zoom only. Code will be sent upon registration. Sunday, February 6th, 11:00 – 12:15 pm. $25.

Individual Instruction

One-on-one instruction is an excellent way to work on specific issues or help with individualized stress relief. This type of instruction can enlighten and nourish students! *Price: $80-$125 *Location: Zoom or in-home.

Praise: “I have been practicing with Julia for more than a year and a half. Julia instructs me in therapeutic yoga because of physical limitations. Through this, I have come to utilize breathing, meditative, and body movements to help with pain, to calm,  to strengthen, and to move more freely. Her teachings and our discussions have opened my mind to look at life and all that entails with a different view. If you are fortunate to have the opportunity to study with Julia, don’t pass it up.” -Mark V.
