Our Teachers

Restorative Yoga & Meditation

Restorative yoga is specifically designed to address the symptoms of stress and anxiety which can range from an agitated restless mind to physical and emotional exhaustion. All restorative yoga postures are fully supported with the use of blankets, bolsters, blocks and straps to create a sense of ease, wellbeing and calmness. Each posture is selected for its ability to quiet the mind and rest the entire body, giving you a deep rejuvenating experience. Restorative yoga can be practiced by everyone, regardless of age or experience. It is shown to help:

  • Quiet the mind
  • Deeply relax the body
  • Allow healing to occur
  • Balance the extraordinary stresses of life

Robert Hallworth, Yoga, Meditation Instructor, Tai Chi Instructor

Robert began teaching yoga at the behest of his first yoga teacher. Robert’s speaking ability and quality of practice makes him a good teacher and this was the impetus for plunging deeply into a body/mind work modality that has had innumerable benefits to Robert personally and to others directly. He enjoys helping others help themselves balance out their own body and mind continuums. He wants to give his patients an arsenal of awareness and mind/body modalities to enable pain management, grow their self confidence and continue to benefit their lives through the program and beyond.
