Hypnotic Restorative Yoga

Hypnotic Restorative Yoga
with John Rettger & Ewa Litauer

Hypnotic Restorative Yoga is a sacred union of the powerful healing energies of hypnosis and restorative yoga, creating a safe and spacious internal atmosphere of positive transformation for psyche and spirit.
In this workshop, we draw from ancient, shamanic and earth-based healing traditions, Buddhism, Hinduism, hypnotherapy and transpersonal psychology to create a modern fusion of collective healing energy. Embracing the subconscious as a source of wisdom and guidance, we contact the satguru (inner-healer) to direct each individual’s healing journey.
We cultivate a grounded, centered, positive psychological state through restorative yoga postures, guided imagery, hypnotherapy and meditative practices to transform body and mind toward greater wholeness.
By embarking on this unique healing journey, you move toward the freedom, grace, and highest aspiration you may be seeking at this time of global shifts.
