Beth Garner knows from personal experience that it is possible to forget how to relax. Fortunately, her first yoga class reminded her what it felt like and kindled an interest in its calming and healing aspects which she has pursued for nearly twenty years.
A graduate of the Yoga Room’s Advanced Studies Program, she also was certified as a Relax and Renew® trainer by restorative yoga authority Judith Hanson Lasater, Ph.D., P.T. Beth’s goal is to create a setting for her students to let physical and mental tension go, using gentle stretching, breath awareness and propped restorative poses which allow the mind to be calm and the body to relax and mend itself. The Berkeley native also assists and teaches in classes for people with chronic health concerns and delights in guiding those unaccustomed to doing yoga into the basic poses.
