On the impact of rest in our mind and body. The science behind supporting the nervous system. Virtual restorative yoga teacher training. 

Jillian Pransky, author of Deep Listening, is an international presenter and a certified yoga therapist. Jillian is creator of Mindful Of Rest: An Online Retreat, The Art of Conscious Rest: Restorative Yoga Teacher Training, as well as Yoga Journal’s Restorative 101. She teaches regularly at prominent wellness centers throughout the country such as Kripalu, Omega, Esalen, 1440, Blue Spirit.

A student of Pema Chödrön’s work since 1998, Jillian infuses her yoga classes with mindfulness practices, compassion, and ease. For over 25 years, she's been teaching people all over the world the principles of deep listening through restorative and slow flow yoga and mindfulness practices. Her message is simple but potent: slowing down, turning inward, and deeply listening to our body and heart is perhaps the most meaningful form of self-care work we can do. When we are more compassionate and connected with ourselves, we are able to be more compassionate and connected with others and the world around us.

Jillian's seamless style of working simultaneously with the body, mind, and spirit, while attuning with nature and the environment, creates inspiring classes, community connections, and an integrative healing experience.
