Mona Anand on the Power of Yoga Nidra

ISHTA Co-Owner and Yogiraj, Mona Anand, will lead her Yoga Nidra Teacher Training from November 1st - 3rd at ISHTA Yoga. Below she shares how she came to the practice of Yoga Nidra and why she think's it is so beneficial for the modern yogi. I was first introduced to yoga nidra in Mumbai, India in my teens. I was a competitive athlete at the time and didn’t know how to stop and rest. Then I took my first Yoga nidra class and it took me to a place of deep inner stillness and peace that I had never experienced. I was hooked from the very first class! My teacher used to say that twenty minutes of yoga nidra was equivalent to four hours of sleep. My own experience with yoga nidra...

Why I Love Restorative by Mona Anand

I am excited to be teaching a new restorative class on the fall schedule. It will follow my lunch class on Wednesdays from 2:00 to 3:00. Restorative yoga has played a major role in releasing stress and tension is my life About fifteen years ago I had a bout of serious asthma attacks that were life changing. I was continually in and out of the hospital and on high levels of cortisone for an extended period of time that created a state of extreme anxiety. Restorative, helped calm my nervous system, release tension from my body and breath and release the fear of future attacks. No amount of trying to talk myself out of it helped because my entire system was stuck in a heightened state of...

Caroline King on Living and Teaching ISHTA

We've extended the Early Bird Deadline for our Upcoming 200-Hour Summer Intensive Teacher Training. Below, Caroline King, ISHTA 500-Hour Teacher Training graduate, sheds light on her transformative experience living and teaching the ISHTA path. Like many of my ISHTA Teacher Training classmates, I joined the 200-hour training because I loved yoga and the ISHTA approach. I had a more than full-time job, and didn't necessarily look at the training as a ticket to a new career. Fast forward 2 years and I am a 500-hour graduate teaching a community class at ISHTA, one private student and a weekly class at my office where I work full-time. I love my job and doubt I will leave any time soon. But everything about how I do my work, treat myself...
