Testimonials from students of the Restorative Training at ISHTA Yoga:
Taking the ISHTA Restorative Training with Mona Anand and Gina Menza, was such a wonderful choice for me! I had always benefited deeply from taking Restorative classes, but the training allowed me to explore the practice so much more profoundly… learning about the physical and energetic value of restorative yoga, how to apply appropriate sequencing, as well as using props, essential oils, and Yoga Nidra in my classes. I would absolutely recommend this Restorative Training to anyone wishing to teach, or even simply establishing a home practice for themselves or loved ones. Mona and Gina are two amazing, incredibly knowledgeable, and utterly delightful teachers. I have the privilege of teaching Restorative classes today because of them! - Donna Fillios, Yoga Teacher
Thank you for an inspiring restorative yoga teacher training experience last weekend. I really appreciate the way that you and Gina have developed an efficiency with the props and sequences. I am especially grateful for Yoga Nidra, both personally and professionally! Experiencing yoga nidra and knowing that it also stimulates alpha and theta states, made me think that there is significant potential for yoga nidra in the treatment and healing of psychological issues. I am eager to learn more. - Teal Usher, Yoga Therapist and Founder of Original Mind Wellness
