05:30 pm to 07:00 pm
The Venue

On Tuesday, April 10 at 5:30 p.m., The Venue will host a presentation by Yulia Azriel and Gabriel Lantz.

Modern-day life creates many challenges that overwhelm our minds, bodies and emotions, putting us into a chronic state of stress that we take as a norm. Come for this enlightening and stress-relieving presentation and short seated demonstration/practice to learn about ancient yogic techniques for optimal health, vitality and happiness. You will gain experience with two simple breathing techniques in combination with a body awareness process to powerfully and systematically relieve your chronic tension and infuse vitality.

Join us for this free and enlightening experience.

About presenters:

Yulia Azriel, M.S. E-RYT 500, founder of Gentle Heart Yoga and Wellness, inspires students to trust their bodies, relax deeply and connect with their innate vitality and joy. Yulia’s mission is to help people realize that their worth and value are not a result of their skills, achievements and successes – self-worth is a birthright. Her calming presence and gentle approach provide a safe space for students to heal and grow. Discovering the holistic approach of yoga has been one of her life’s most transformational experiences.

Gabriel Lantz, RYT 200, began taking yoga classes in 2002 after a very serious automobile accident that left him with severe back and neck pain. He learned that yoga was not only a means to heal himself but also a path of empowerment to gain control over his life. He first studied yoga with the Art of Living & Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. He later studied yoga & yoga therapy at the Amrit Yoga Institute. As a teacher, Gabriel loves to merge the healing power of yogic techniques with modern day understandings to bring a practical ‘real world’ approach to yoga.
