My name is Linda Bender and I am a Certified Kripalu Yoga Teacher & Usui Reiki Master
The focus of my teaching has evolved toward Private Yoga Sessions in the privacy of my clients' homes in the Litchfield County area of NW Connecticut.
In 2009 I became certified in Therapeutic Yoga, a 30 hour training with Cheri Clampett & Arturo Peal. A very nurturing restorative yoga approach to deep relaxation using breathwork, guided meditation and hands-on/off-healing modalities like Reiki to create an experience where natural self-healing can take place.
In 2010 I attended a 3 day intensive workshop with Sarah Powers, the creator of Yin/Insight Yoga. The workshop was an innovative blend of Yin Yoga (long held passive floor poses that nourish the connective tissues of the joints and harmonize the energy body), meditation, pranayama and a slow alignment based flow (Yang) practice for balance. The focus of this practice is to teach the person to fully inhabit their body.
