Relax & Renew

This class is taught by:

Becky Thompson

I took my first yoga class around age 50. The very first class was a Yoga Nidra taught by my teacher Laura Spaulding.

I was hooked. I tried lots of different classes and teachers. My gratitude to all of them, especially Kim Esteran.
In 2009 Laura offered Volunteer Teacher Training and I signed up. In the spring of 2010 I started teaching yoga as a volunteer at Gilda's Club. Now more hooked.
In 2010, Laura and YE offered me the opportunity of a life time, the Rhonda Lawson Memorial Scholarship. This Scholarship gave me a chance to study and become a Yoga Teacher. The more I studied and practiced and taught, the more I could see the benefits of Yoga for everyone. In 2012 I completed the 500 hour level of teacher training. I am forever grateful to Laura and YE for this gift.

I believe yoga is for everybody. I have had the good fortune to teach many different students who might not look like traditional yoga students, but who are totally committed to the teachings. Actually, I am the student in this arena.

My teachers include Ramanand Patel, Francois Raoult, Doug Keller, Kino MacGregor, Christina Sell, Saraswathi Jois, Thank you Laura for bringing all of these wonderful teachers to YE. I have also with studied Rodney Yee and his wife Colleen Yee, Leslie Kaminoff, Lillias Folen, Dr. Baxter Bell and Judith Hansen Lasater. I completed Judith Hansen Lasater's Relax and Renew training and have been teaching Restorative Yoga for several years.

Experience the luxury and pampering of being placed in restorative poses.  Restorative yoga is the use of props to support the body in positions of ease to facilitate relaxation and health. It is about letting go and opening. Small class size (12 students) allows maximum individual attention. Give yourself the gift of time and space to recharge.
