WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT JUDY'S TRAININGS
The Restorative Teacher Training with Judy Curiel deepened every other aspect of my teaching as well as my personal practice. Judy has an ease of communication that comes through in far more than words. She is a natural teacher. The weekend was informative, interactive and created a sacred space where healing could emerge. I use the understanding that arose from this training in every class, restorative or not. Give yourself and your students the gift of allowance by immersing in this weekend.
- Christine Casullo,Restorative Training Sept 2011
We have had Judy lead her Restorative training at our PA studio several times now. She is a consumate professional who is as compassionate about the learning process as she is knowledgable. Students can expect a clear and concise explanations about the practices of Restorative yoga and will complete the program feeling empowered to share it with others. While the training is informative, it is also relaxing and fun, and Judy always creates a safe space for her students to explore.
- Kristen Butera, Restorative Training , Sept 2011
A good yoga teacher needs restorative in the repertoire for both the students and the teacher. Judi Curiel is the best teacher you can find.
-Andrea Hornett, Restorative Training Oct 2012
Judy Curiel is a wonderful yoga teacher. She is truly a yoga teacher’s teacher. She is highly experienced, knowledgeable, and sensitive yoga teacher that brings a truly beautiful, sensitive, spiritual experience to all of her classes. She has a vast repertoire of modifications and adaptations of yoga asanas. She brings a sensitive, kind spirit to all of her classes and workshops. She is truly a skilled teacher, and her workshops provide a wonderful opportunity to develop your skills as a yoga teacher and practitioner.I have felt that all of the classes and workshops I have done with Judy helped me to develop my skills on my yoga path.
-Nancy Murphy, Restorative Training, March 2012, How to Teach Gentle Yoga Training, April 2013
"I have had the pleasure of attending Judy's classes and participating in her Restorative Yoga Teacher Training. She brings enthusiasm, creativity, and an extensive knowledge to her teaching. Her obvious passion for Restorative Yoga makes her classes a delight to experience."
-Judy Freed, Restorative Training Oct 2012
While I was in my teacher training, I took several of Judy's workshops. Her workshops are thorough and informative. After five years of teaching, I will still refer to her manual and add her restorative poses into the beginning and end of my practice. The students love the poses and will ask for more!
- Teresa Winte, Restorative Training Sept 2011
The Restorative Teacher training with Judy Curiel is an excellent balance of hands on experience and practical resources and lecture. Judy's love of the practice, years of teaching and multiple certificates are evident in every minute of the teacher training. Not only will you leave with a wealth of knowledge and resources to teach Restorative yoga, you will leave having practiced hours of Restorative yoga with a master teacher, feeling refreshed and inspired for your own yoga practice.
– Molly Crowley, Restorative Training, March 2013
Some wonderful energy filled the Sebastian Yoga Studio this weekend as we all learned the art of teaching Restorative Yoga under the guidance of Judy Forman Curiel. A truly talented teacher.
- Linda Kay Graham, Restorative Training, Jan 2016

-Jessica Mathewson Denney, Restorative Training , Jan 2016
the three afternoons spent in your training program were some of the most rewarding that I have spent in a very long time. Not only did I learn so much about Restorative Yoga and meet some wonderful people, but was truly inspired by the love and dedication that you bring to every
practice. As a teacher I aspire to that total love that you impart. Thank you for sharing your gifts.

-Dan Nolan, Restorative Training, April 2016
I took Judy's Restorative Yoga Workshop to enhance my training. It was absolutely amazing. Judy created a loving and supported space. She was extremely knowledgeable and made sure we understood the material she was presenting. I had fear at first to teach restorative, but Judy compassionately guided me through this fear and helped me to stay in the moment. I highly recommend Judy for Restorative training or one of her classes. She is a very kind, loving, warmhearted person/ teacher.
-Shazz Rodriguez, Restorative Training, March 2013
Judy is a very knowledgeable, passionate and compassionate teacher! She provides a ton of great information that is well presented. She makes sure that her students completely absorb the material so that one can incorporate new learning in one's own practices or classes. I have taken her Restorative and Yoga for the Rounded Bodies workshops and highly recommend Judy's classes.
- Sharon Bennett, Restorative Training Oct 2013, Gentle Training March 2014
The first thing you will notice, in a class or training with Judy, is her passion for yoga. The passion infuses her teachings and her trainings. She appreciates and emphasizes that all bodies are different and that each person's experiences will be unique to that individual. The next thing you will notice is her relaxed style of teaching. Judy makes her students feel welcome and capable, no matter what level of prior yoga experience. I have taken several trainings with Judy, including those for Restorative Yoga, How to Teach Very Gentle Yoga and Chair Yoga. She is very experienced abd she truly enjoys sharing that knowledge with others.
- Sue Raymond, Restorative Training, 2012, Gentle Training 2014
i would like to "Thank You" Judy for everything you have taught me and shared with me. I love teaching a Restorative Yoga and sharing this beautiful practice with others. And with your help, I was able to learn to teach. I am so grateful to you and for these experiences.

-Karla Lawson, Restorative Training , March 2016
Entering into this space of Friday night was wonderful. You were so down to earth and welcoming.. We all settled into the safe, beautiful restorative space you created and fun continued throughout the training. The critique was valuable and constructive. I can honestly say I loved every minute of the training.
-Nancy DiTeodoro, Restorative Training , March 2016
You are an incredible teacher of teachers. Thank you for your clear, creative instructions and group work. You made this training interesting, fun and
accessible for EVERYONE. I loved the opportunity to connect with other gifted teachers and learn from them as well.
- April Marie Showman, Restorative Training, March 2016
Such a special training. Thank you
-Diane Link, Restorative Training, April 2016
I like taking restorative yoga and wanted to start teaching it. I began to look for information about teaching restorative yoga. After looking online and borrowing books I was so lost. All the info was about the poses but not how to teach restorative. So then I asked local teachers for recommendations for a restorative TT, about 10 teachers recommended Judy's training. It was EVERYTHING they said it would be: wonderful, informative and an overall complete training. Judy is warm and full of knowledge and training with her was a delight.
