Restorative Yoga

  • 3rd Eye Lounge 902 East 5th Street Austin, TX, 78702 United States (map)

Restorative yoga utilizes props to support your body while holding poses for several minutes. The purpose of this practice is to soften the spaces where tension is held both physically and emotionally, returning the body back to its natural state of balance. It is a meditative class whereby being physically supported allows you to let go and find a state of relaxation and comfort.

Join Devin Every Tuesday Evening at 5:00pm

More about Devin:
Having began her journey of healing as a means to overcome trauma, Devin Grindrod understands the importance of the mind, body, and spirit connection that holistic services provide. She has continued to return to this practice over the years as a way to center herself and find stillness. Devin has used this knowledge of reunification to empower those she has worked with on both the community and individual level to help discover their strength and self-worth.

Devin received her undergraduate degree in Psychology from San Diego State University. She attained a graduate certification in Restorative Practices from the International Institute for Restorative Practices. Devin earned her 200-hour yoga teacher training certification through Core Power Yoga and is a Registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance. She has also attended a 20-hour workshop on Trauma-Informed Yoga, training with Transcending Sexual Trauma Through Yoga. Devin is also an Usui Reiki Master as well as a Vaginal Steam Facilitator.

During her higher education career, Devin discovered her passion of trauma healing by working with the Youth Violence Research Lab at San Diego State University. It was through her work with children and families in City Heights, San Diego that she found her fascination for community and learned how important it is to reach out and support one another. Devin continued working on the grassroots level as a Behavioral Coach with New Alternatives, Inc. for children with developmental, mood, and learning disorders. Here she aided in facilitating a home environment where families learned to communicate and respect one another in order to foster a sense of cohesiveness. Devin then transitioned her focus of trauma healing to yoga and started her business, Spiritually Balanced. She has worked with students both privately as well as in addiction recovery facilities throughout Southern California and Austin, Texas. Her goal is to create a safe space where individuals feel empowered to regain control over their lives while working to become the most authentic version of themselves.

Devin is a strong advocate for empowerment and whole person healing. She understands the importance of giving yourself permission to find stillness and letting go of what no longer serves you. She returns to the quote by B.K.S. Iyengar “Begin as you are,” as a motto for both her teaching and her personal life. Releasing yourself from expectations allows for space to grow and cultivate a life of bliss.
