THE NATURE OF
JUDITH HANSON LASATER EXPLAINS HOW
RESTORATIVE YOGA, AND UNDERSTANDING
YOUR OWN HUMAN-NESS CREATES
THE PERFECT ATMOSPHERE FOR HEALING.
BY RITA TRIEGER
When I began my career as a yoga teacher
many years ago, most of my classes were
on the vigorous side: lots of vinyasa, arm
balancing, wheels, and upside down things.
Then I began to teach classes at a hospital
and I soon realized that just about everything I was used to teaching needed to be
modified or eliminated.
Around the time when I was quickly running
out of class ideas, I received a beautiful gift
from the Universe—an opportunity to study
with world-renowned teacher and author
Judith Hanson Lasater. Her innovative Relax and Renew Teacher Training changed
my perspective as a teacher and as a human
being and because of what I learned, I became much better at both.
This year, Judith is one of the keynote speakers at the International Association of Yoga
Therapists’ June, 2014, Symposium on Yoga
Therapy and Research (SYTAR) in Austin,
Texas, and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to reconnect with the teacher who has
so positively influenced me.
