Restorative Yoga


This class is taught by:

Gila Shire

With a 14-year background in nursing, Gila always loved working with people. After she moved from Germany to Phoenix in 1997, she became a certified massage therapist and worked with private clients. When she was introduced to yoga, her life gained a dynamic new dimension. Alignment and the healing/therapeutic approach are key elements of her classes, accompanied by thoughtfully chosen themes, music and readings.

“I love to mindfully guide people to combine the beauty they bring to their mats with the wisdom, knowledge and inspiration of yoga.”

Gila’s latest endeavor as a doula (birth advocate and coach) brings everything she has learned over the past two decades into full circle—her years of hospital and nursing work and the natural birth of her daughter Talisa in 1991.

Amy Ouzoonian

Amy has been practicing yoga and meditation for 13 years. In 2004 she joined the dance and theater collective WOW café theater in New York, moved to Arizona in 2011 with a 200-hour yoga teaching certification, and recently traveled to India to earn her 300-hour Jivamukti teacher certification.
 
“If you seek love, happiness, gratitude, kindness, peace, find ways to show those gifts. The first action begins with you.”
 
Amy loves to chant and play the harmonium, and she brings this passion into her classes to open the heart and lift the spirit.
Luxurious floor postures generously supported by blankets, bolsters and other props to allow slow, delicious releases of deeply stored tensions.
