Cultivate the wisdom to create a soft place for your students to land during this unique module. Lean into the moving stillness of Gentle, Yin, and Restorative yoga. Restorative and Yin yoga are the key to a balanced practice. As we settle into the stillness of these practices, our body begins to repair itself on a physical and spiritual level.

Once we can surrender on our mats, the healing properties seamlessly flow into each cell and our outer lives.

We will highlight Katonah style restorative postures in this module throughout our time together and point out how these slower practices are vital to our well-being as teachers in this yoga world today.

Yoga is a mindful, transformative practice meant to be delighted in by all. Ruby, in a constant state of awe through the practice of yoga, wants to share the healing qualities that each aspect of yoga has to offer. She began her studies at the Pavones Yoga Center in Pavones, Costa Rica. Through an extensive 500 hour training, she was able to authentically fine-tune her teaching skills. Not only did she learn how to guide a group of students but she learned how to guide herself as well. She learned healing modalities such as Reiki and became in tune with nature and our humbling environment. This experience opened up a whole new realm of love and light into her heart. Ruby’s intention as a teacher is to create a space where students can soak in their own yummy experience of self exploration while still feeling apart of something greater than themselves. Ruby extends her gratitude to her teachers and students, past and present, and looks forward to seeing you on the mat!
Crystal finds the beauty and magic in the yoga teachings and loves sharing her love of yoga with others. Over the last 12 years of her life while being passionate about the healing arts including massage, dance, vegetarianism, and lots of travel, yoga was and is a huge part of her daily life…on and off the mat. In 2012 she moved out to California to study yoga at the Laughing Lotus in San Francisco which was the most transformative, beautiful, heart opening time of her life. Awakening to her soul’s purpose on this planet even more. And that is why she love teaching yoga, to hold the space for others to heal and transform their lives. To live out your soul’s wildest dreams and to embrace the beauty of every moment. Yoga helps Crystal step out of her head and into her heart. The heart space, where we all should learn to live from. Crystal also graduated from a Art of Attention yoga training in NYC with Elena Brower. This training brought the magic of yoga even deeper into her body and brain. Literally healing every cell, thought, and pattern. Crystal feels so privileged to be a yoga teacher in this lifetime. She is so grateful everyday for this practice and being able to share it with you!
