Benefits of Restorative Yoga

The benefits of restorative yoga are many. They include

  • dismantling of chronic tension patterns
  • enhanced immune function
  • effective cellular respiration
  • reduced hyper-tension in the cardiovascular system
  • reduced mental and emotional tension
  • a body-mind returned to a natural state of ease and equilibrium

In this module we will learn how the autonomic nervous system, and endocrine system function and how they interact in stressful situations to create disease.

Integrative Restoration iRest Yoga Nidra.

iRest is integrative, in that it heals the various unresolved issues, traumas, and wounds that are present in the body and mind.

It is restorative in that it aids its practitioners in recognizing their underlying peace of mind that is always present amidst all changing circumstances of life.

This was a really warm, exciting, encouraging and profound learning experience. The facilitation was awesome and there was such a wonderful sense of community amongst the practitioners.

A beautiful balance of life-to-life and individual learning. I am so inspired to continue with the practice and to find ways to integrate it into other areas of my life and to share it with others.

Karla and Neal are incredible. They are truly exceptional teachers. They have such care, and hold such safe, honouring spaces, in a way I haven’t experienced with any other Yoga teachers.

They are truly committed to this work on such a deep level, and you can tell that from the way they are in the world. I am awed by how ahead of their time they are in this work, and think it is really groundbreaking.

I haven’t found anyone doing it the way they are. I can’t wait for their book to come out!! I highly highly HIGHLY recommend working with them.



There was a profound truth and ease present here that made it possible to discover some of one’s own profound truths and ease.

Karla and Neal - Thank you for such a beautiful weekend. I have arrived back into the stillness within.


Stephanie Leighton

Restorative Yoga is the warm and encompassing hug I had been craving. The level of care, creativity, and personalization that Contemporary Yoga brings to the practice is incredibly special.

The love for this practise that Karla and Neal share shines through their teaching. They both hold these explorations with such wisdom and grace. Their embodiment of kindness and nurturing fills the space and is felt by all who attend these trainings.

The chance to deeply rest is a great gift. This training has been an incredible gift for me and I am excited to share the teachings with others.


Karen Ross
