WHAT TO EXPECT:

Restorative Yoga and Deep Listening is a weekend long program that draws upon subtle energy awareness and experience to bring each student into new layers of understanding. Using asana, pranayama, meditation, visualization, ecology, and art the practitioner/student can construct an individual recovery processes that speak directly to their needs. This training will encourage each student to guide and be guided in a restorative fashion. Throughout the weekend students will explore physical and energetic methods; using linguistics and presence to set the tone. Hands-on & hands-off adjustments, sequencing for affects, traditional & modern adaptations, lecture & discussion, and art & nature moments will be called into focus, giving the students a secure, but varied foundation to teach and/or deepen their personal practice.

TESTIMONIALS

Graciela’s knowledge of yoga and restorative yoga in particular is thorough, intuitive and compassionate. She conveyed the essence as well as the particulars beautifully during our training. Her choice of assignments, the materials provided, and the composition of the three days’ training gave me a solid foundation for my own restorative practice, and the inspiration to share it with other Yogis in the future.

-A. Poston, September 2017

If we have good fortune, we meet teachers who embody their craft. If we are blessed we know one or two who impart through their passions and their actions, their skills. Graciela passes on a legacy of listening deeply to  self, other, and the connection which is the Self. Layer by layer, breath by breath Gracie embraces each student’s capacity to Restore Self. A five star course. 

-Kirt, J. Baab, LMSW, ERYT-200, March 2018

Gracie’s restorative yoga: deep listening training was one of the highlights of my year. It felt like a yoga retreat, was my favorite workshop/training I’ve ever attended, and by the culmination I felt more connected to everyone there and to myself. What a gift!
