Physically you cannot be anxious and relaxed at the same time, which is why everyone can benefit from a regular restorative practice.

In this largely experiential workshop, we'll explore the physical, emotional, and energetic shifts that occur when the body is placed in conscious rest, and learn why sleeping isn't as restful as we might think.

We'll also learn to use props such as blankets, blocks, bolsters and straps to offer comfort, support and subtle stretches, as well as how to alleviate the effects of particular conditions and/or injuries.

For the last 11 years, Rita Trieger has been teaching yoga for various departments of Stamford Hospital, including the Bennett Cancer Center (BCC), where she has built a strong yoga community for cancer patients and survivors, The Health and Fitness Institute (HFI), where she teaches therapeutic and Vinyasa classes, and Intensive Cardiac Rehab (ICR) where she serves as the stress-management facilitator for the Dean Ornish Program for the Reversal of Heart Disease. Rita has taught yoga therapy to medical students at Yale University, as well as rst and second year students at Northern Westchester Medical School, and has presented at several national yoga conferences, including the International Yoga Therapy Conference (IYTC), and the Montreal International Symposium for Therapy and Yoga (MISTY 2011), Canada’s rst yoga therapy conference. Her abstract and article, Open Heart Yoga was published in the spring of 2011, for the medical journal, Topics in Geriatric Rehabilitation (TGR).
