What do many of Silicon Valley’s most influential founders and executives have in common? Ranya Anabtawi. She comes to your office once a week and, in just 30-minutes, guides executives and their teams from high-stressed states that choke innovation and productivity. The camaraderie leads them into deeply calm and connected states that optimize creativity and focus.
No need to change clothes or even breaking a sweat. Ranya’s 25-year journey into mastering a wide variety of mindfulness methods and extensive experience working with top business performers provide her clients a powerful and practical experience that elevates productivity.
Yoga by Ranya’s Mindfulness at the Office provides a 30-minute combination of meditation, breath work (or pranayama) and chair yoga. These “power breaks” revitalize mental focus, creativity, collaboration, and productivity, leaving you feeling refreshed and energized. The sessions are simple (no Yoga skills necessary), accessible to all, work as powerfully in groups as they do in private sessions, and fit neatly into the busiest of work environments. Relax, there is no need to change into yoga clothes and you won’t even break a sweat.
PRivate REstorative yoga
[IN HOME OR STUDIO]
Restorative yoga leverages relaxing and non-stretch poses designed to make you feel weightless and take you into a state of rest deeper than sleep.
Practitioners of restorative yoga often say they feel like they float into a trance, or waking sleep, feeling into that place between sleeping and waking. Google cofounder, Larry Page, came up with his original idea for Google’s search engine in this type of state.
Albert Einstein got his Theory of Relativity while “riding on a beam of light” in a waking-sleep state. Thomas Edison had a daily practice in which he postured his mind and body to enter this state to optimize his innovative genius and now has his name on 1,093 patents.
When one digs beneath the surface, one quickly learns that many, if not most of history’s leading inventors, artists, and, yes, mystics too, practiced putting themselves into this half-sleep, half-awake state. Ranya’s method of Restorative Yoga conditions and positions both mind and body for those who desire to optimize their creativity, relax their body completely and re-boot their mental capacity. In short, she teaches them how to enter productive rest for productive results.
Unlike more common forms of yoga, restorative yoga is not athletic at all. Rather, restorative yoga is physically relaxing and emotionally healing. Your heart rate drops, your busy mind frees itself from the workplace grind, your body releases tension, and creativity expresses itself more fluently.
Ranya’s clients quickly realize that her soothing voice is her most distinguishing and, perhaps, most powerful tool. She uses it to physically and mentally guide her clients into their own unique version of rest.
Leveraging special yoga bolsters, blocks, blankets, eye pillows, and perhaps even a yoga mat, Ranya tailor designs the perfect poses to guide you into feeling weightless, comfort, and true deep rest. There is no stretching, athleticism, sweating, or difficulty in Restorative Yoga. It’s about surrendering. Sometimes surrender can be the hardest thing to do and she knows how to get you there. It’s all about comfort. It is as perfect for yoga beginners as it is for seasoned yoga practitioners.
Although Yoga by Ranya offers restorative yoga classes and workshops for groups, executives express that they derive more profound results from their private sessions with Ranya. These private sessions typically last 90 - minutes and, unlike in group settings, her executive clients benefit 100% from Ranya’s constant attention to detail. Your physical comfort is a top priority so you can attain your optimal mind-body-spirit connection.
