Yin & 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.

Jeanene Farley

Jeanene, Satjeet Kaur (her spiritual name), or as her students refer to her, “Yogini Jeanie" holds a 200 hr. yoga certification in Hatha from At One Yoga and a 200 hr. in Kundalini from Yoga Phoenix as well as a 500 hr. advanced yoga certification in Astanga from Dave’s Astanga Yoga. She has completed the Kundalini Level 2 Mind and Meditation module and will be participating in the Conscience Communication module in the Fall of 2015.

Enjoying and believing in the therapeutic effects of many different types of healing modalities, Jeanene went on to be trained in playing the Symphonic Gong, is a Reiki 3 (healing through the hands) certified healer, learned to play the Crystal Bowls through Ronee Kipnes and Tryshe Devheney and trained with Steve Price in Yoga Nidra (guided meditation into the deepest state of awareness). She will be attending Kamini Desai’s 100 hour Yoga Nidra training in January/February of 2016.

Jeanene is frequent a contributor to adult teacher training programs and brings over 25 years of experience in training teachers to teach kid’s yoga through her unique kid’s teacher training program, Fitness Fusion For Kids. You can find out more on her website at www.yoginijeanie.com.

Her current teaching schedule includes hot yoga, yin/restorative, Kundalini, kid’s yoga, yoga nidra and she plays the Gong/Crystal Bowls in many of her classes.

“Mindfulness means bringing our full, relaxed yet purposeful attention to each present moment. There is a deeper feeling of presence through immense love, joy, peace, beauty and harmony when we have this mindful connection in our lives.”

 
 
Gentle movement followed by luxurious floor postures generously supported by blankets, bolsters and other props to allow slow, delicious releases of deeply stored tensions.
