Restorative


This class is taught by:

Vanessa Ernst

Growing up in San Diego and New Mexico, outdoor activities were a way of life. Biking, snowboarding, hiking and swimming, experiencing it all. Vanessa followed her family to AZ and suffered through the desert heat, but found a silver lining in yoga.

Vanessa’s introduction to yoga was in 1998 with Carlin Sikes (BKS Iyengar) at Scottsdale Community College. In 2005 she met Marivic Wrobel, who inspired and encouraged her to continue practicing. Vanessa’s desire for stability and fulfilling a need for peace drove her to enroll in At One Teacher Training, completing a 200 Hour YTT Certification in 2014.

Thanks to Yoga Vanessa has been able to change the course of her life. Yoga has taught her to accept and adapt to where she has been and be prepared for the new challenges ahead. Her journey is an example of some of the toughest lessons in life, but with love and support she was able to transform herself. Much like the lotus blossom that proves its strength and stamina from which it comes, her spiritual rejuvenation and courage to stay healthy will help her give to others, follow her calling and love herself.

Veda Spidle

Veda Spidle was born in Lithuania and at a young age immigrated to the
United States with her family. Since childhood, she has been surrounded by art, yoga, meditation, and spirituality. These influences led her to pursue a B.A. in Interior Design and later, to live abroad to teach English in South Korea, where she met her husband.
Her experience there gave her a foundation for connecting to students, making learning fun, and
expanding her perspective of life.

Upon leaving South Korea, she and her husband moved to Arizona where the
opportunity to blend her love of yoga with her passion for teaching presented itself. With the support of her family, friends, mentors, and students, Veda completed Yoga Teacher Training and is now an E-RYT at the 200-hour level and an RYT at the 500-hour
level with a focus on Anusara® yoga. She continues to expand her knowledge of yoga by constantly attending additional training and workshop classes, most recently she is pursuing another 200-hour training certification in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan®.

Veda enjoys teaching people of all ages and levels of ability. She aspires
to continue sharing her love of yoga, meditation, health, and life with others, and most importantly, hopes to teach people to have self-compassion through yoga.

Experience Restorative yoga through breath awareness, gentle movements to relax muscles, and supported poses. All poses can be supported by props with modifications as needed. This practice will encourage the body into deep relaxation and total comfort in order to release tension, cultivate awareness of one's own inner stillness and peace, and elicit your own body's intelligence to aid in the healing process.
