Nirel

Yoga Instructor

Nirel is a yoga teacher that specializes in Restorative Yoga, a yoga practice of stillness, release, and rest. Through her own experience with imposter syndrome, mental fatigue, burnout, and depression, Nirel learned that there was more to wellness than trying to fit in 8 hours of sleep every night. Yoga taught her that wellness is multifaceted and inspired her to share her knowledge and experiences through teaching others.

Nirel graduated from the 200-hour and 300-hour program at Folk Yoga San Francisco (formerly known as Yoga Garden). Her practice is informed by yogic and Buddhist philosophy and Ayurvedic and hygge principles. 

She weaves mindfulness techniques together with intuitive movement (and stillness) to guide awareness to your mind and body. Her classes are an opportunity to explore, craft your own personal yoga practice, and reconnect with yourself. Nirel believes that through the intentional and iterative process of observation, exploration, and introspection, we find personal growth.
