Restorative: Gentle


This class is taught by:

Mimi Budnick

Drawing from over 15 years of work as a community organizing and an adult educator, Mimi is able to connect with her students where they are at and to create an environment that feels open and welcoming. She been practicing yoga for over a decade, and received her Vinyasa teacher certification in 2010 from Tom Gillette at Eyes of the World. Since then Mimi has taught in a variety of settings including studios, medical clinics, homeless shelters, drug rehab facilities, and schools.
 
Prompted by an urge to more explicitly help people use yoga as a tool for healing, from both physical and emotional injuries, Mimi recently received her certification in Therapeutic Yoga from Cheri Clampett and Arturo Peal and has studied Restorative Yoga with Jillian Pransky. Additionally she has participated in workshops about yoga’s benefits for dealing with depression/anxiety and PTSD with Bo Forbes, Bessel van der Kolk, and Dana Moore.
 
Whether leading more challenging classes for experienced yogis, or teaching classes to complete beginners and populations with limited mobility and significant physical/emotional challenges, Mimi likes to remind her students that yoga is about more than the physical postures- that the asana are a vehicle to help bring about a more unified state of consciousness and that the real work of yoga takes place off the mat. Mimi’s aim is to guide people through an experience on their yoga mat that creates space in her students’ lives to connect in deeper and more meaningful ways with themselves, their community, and the world around them.
Restorative yoga is a delicious way to relax and soothe frayed nerves. Restorative classes use bolsters, blankets, and blocks to prop students in passive poses so that the body can experience the benefits of a pose without having to exert any effort. A good restorative class is more rejuvenating than a nap.
 
Gentle classes are designed to reduce stress utilizing a range of yogic techniques, such as movement, meditation and breath control, to quiet the mind, induce calm, and nourish the spirit.
