Divine Sleep YOGA NIDRA: Stretch & Restore!

Gentle Stretching & Guided Relaxation

Lauren Fulbright, 500-RYT, 500 KYT

Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra Instructor & Life Coach     

                                                              Beginners, All Levels, Ages 15 & Up

                                                          $17 Registered Students; $22 Drop In 

As the pace of modern life increases exponentially, the timeless practice of Yoga Nidra has come to the foreground as an effective tool for living with greater health and ease in the modern age.


Yoga Nidra – which literally means "yogic sleep" – is a guided meditation scientifically proven to induce a profound level of relaxation which leads to improved health and transformation on the physical, energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. 
Just one hour of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to three hours of regular sleep.


A regular Yoga Nidra practice has been shown to be very effective in alleviating stress, anxiety, insomnia and depression. It calms the nervous system and has the power to transform negative core beliefs into a more positive outlook. The visualization and sensory awareness used during Yoga Nidra directly communicate with your subconscious mind - where real and lasting changes begin!


Everybody can do this practice! Each class begins with gentle stretches to loosen your joints, free-up energy, and prepare you for the Yoga Nidra. We then move to a comfortable lying down or seated position for Yoga Nidra. The instructor guides you through a series of simple meditations where you bring your awareness to physical sensations, the breath and mental images. The tools/techniques learned can also be used at home for stress reduction and as a prelude to better sleep.


Absolutely NO yoga or meditation experience needed. Wear comfortable clothing. 

 

Students who do Yoga Nidra say they LOVE the way they feel afterward—noticeably

looser, freer…and a little more enlightened too!

Cultivating Mindful Communication Skills in this Age of Distraction

With Jon Waterman                                                  All Welcome

                                                                                   Fee: $100 / 4 Classes


This 4-Week mini-series will give you an opportunity to become familiar with the basic techniques, language and applicable skills of Mindfulness Meditation – both “on and off the cushion.”

 

“On the cushion” instructions will explore various postures including; sitting, kneeling, standing and gentle movement. These are designed to help the student establish and sustain an individualized daily meditation practice. Sitting in a chair is encouraged for anyone finding the floor uncomfortable. Some of the classes will include a session of restorative deep relaxation in the reclining posture.

 

Instruction for “Off the cushion” will emphasize the power of cultivating both focused listening and speaking intentionally as objects of our meditation. It’s one thing to experience a state of peace while sitting in silence on the cushion; it’s quite another to be able to maintain one’s equanimity and dignity within the multitude of stressful relationships facing us today.

 

We will explore what is known as “Insight Dialogue”—an interpersonal meditation practice that brings the mindfulness and tranquility of silent meditation directly into our experience with other people. Dialogue is mindful and intentional conversation.  There are seven key skills and attitudes that we cultivate, not in an absolute or perfectionistic way, but in a spirit of continuous learning, even playfulness. These include openness to outcome, non-reactive listening, inquiry, suspending assumptions and reflecting.


Chairs, sitting cushions, blankets, eye masks and other necessary props will be provided. We suggest that whenever possible you wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing.

Your Instructor: Jon Waterman, an original member of the Board of Directors of the IMCW (Insight Meditation Community of Washington) Teacher’s Council, began practicing yoga and meditation while teaching the martial arts in the early 1970’s, with a concentration, since 1994, on Buddhist Insight Meditation. His workshops and retreats focus on strengthening continuity of present moment awareness by combining mindful movement, insight dialogue and various meditation techniques.

 Mindfulness Meditation Mini-Retreat from Stress  

With Jon Waterman                                                                  All Levels

                                                                       $45/person Early Bird Discount

                                                                        $60/person After

Co-sponsored  with IMCW (Insight Meditation Community of Washington)

 

Understanding how to cultivate and sustain appropriate attention, both on and off the meditation cushion, is essential in recognizing not only the origins of stress in our busy and demanding lives, but also skillful ways to reduce that stress. However, many of us here in the West come to the cushion with great expectations and quickly discover that we first need to remember how to relax.

 

 Scientists have proven that meditation not only reduces stress. It also helps you in these ways:

    •        Strengthen the immune system.                     
    •        Increase heart health.  
    •        Reduce high blood pressure.                                             
    •        Slow biological aging.                                           
    •        Strengthen coping skills.                                       
    •        Sleep better.
    •        Better manage pain.
    •        Heal more quickly.
    •        Help you create positive behavior changes.
    •        Achieve a greater sense of overall well-being.

 

This workshop is open to all—from beginners to long-time meditators—and is an opportunity for you to extend your practice over a few hours. The theme will be “Connecting the Moments.” That is, intentionally cultivating and sustaining a focused attention on sensations in the body as we mindfully transition from one posture to another; sitting/kneeling; standing; walking; reclining and gentle stretching. This four-hour workshop is crafted to be deeply relaxing, not to push our limits in one posture or another.

Please join us in this 40th  “Mini-Retreat” at Dream Yoga Studio. Come to share meditation practice and get your questions answered. Explore new mindfulness techniques that will help you experience greater calm and healing.


Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing. Chairs, cushions, blankets, kneeling benches and props are available, but feel free to bring your personal sitting cushion.

Past participants are amazed at how peaceful they feel after this Retreat…and how fast the day flies.

The practice of setting intentions -- or taking time to decide what you want for your day, your month, your year -- is a powerful change agent that can help you craft a life you love.

 

Come to this class to prepare for your New Year and get 2017 off to a magical start as yoga instructor and life coach Lauren Fulbright guides you through a practice designed to help you connect with your deepest self and set powerful resolutions from a place of soulfulness.  

 

  • Experience the new Kripalu Vinyasa - bringing intention to your practice as you stretch, breathe and move through an All-Levels series of yoga poses that flow from one to another. 

  • Learn how to set goals based on the feeling states you would like to experience, rather than external measures of what you think you should accomplish this year. Lauren will guide you through simple ways to make your dreams a reality -- making it easy to stick to resolutions without adding more stress to your life.
  • Tap into your heart's truest desire in a Yoga Nidra Guided Relaxation/Meditation designed to help you achieve deep states of relaxation as you connect with your core self.

New Year's Day Rise & Shine Practice Class

                                                          $23 EARLY BIRD; $28 thereafter

The yogi's say that every time we practice yoga, a part of us dies and is reborn.


The same might be said about our transition to the New Year: We ring out the old and ring in the new. This practice will inspire you to reawaken and open up to the New Year. When you open up physically and through breath practices, you open other aspects of being: Mental, emotional and spiritual.


In this class, you'll practice heart and hip openers, and pranayama (breath practices), so you may be open to receiving all this New Year has to offer.


All levels are welcome.

Introduction to Mindfulness

Meditation & Stress Reduction

Co-Sponsored with IMCW

Insight Meditation Community of Washington


This short course provides you  a special opportunity to become familiar with, or continue to practice, the time-tested, focusing, relaxing and restorative qualities of Mindfulness Meditation. We'll explore how meditation helps us lower stress levels, and be more balanced and healthy. You'll learn useful tools for identifying and managing stress in skillful and gentle ways.

 

We know that many folks are often intimidated by the thought of sitting still for long periods of time. So we’ll first explore gentle flowing movements that release tension and stress to prepare for meditation. As weeks progress, instructions will cover meditation while sitting, kneeling, standing and walking. Each class includes deep relaxation in the reclining posture. Jon will also offer short talks which include a relaxed blend of Applied Mindfulness—a secular approach to teaching meditation similar to Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), and some traditional teachings from the path to enlightenment.

 

This series is primarily for those new to meditation and/or want to reduce stress. Props such as chairs, sitting cushions, blankets and eye masks will be provided.

Learn & Practice THE FIVE TIBETANS

With Luann Fulbright, 500-KYT, IYT & E-RYT                 All Levels 

                                                               $75 / 3 classes; $30 Drop In

It takes 21 days to create a new habit!  This Mini-Course will get you into the habit of practicing the life-enhancing Tibetans (aka, ancient "Rites of Rejuvenation").


The "5 Tibetans" is a basic—yet often little-known—yoga practice. This powerful ancient yoga rite gives you a quick physical workout, leading to physical, emotional, mental and spiritual transformation. The Tibetans can be practiced in small spaces with little time. All you need is a few minutes, and enough space to swing your arms around or to do a push up. The 5 Tibetans can also be used as a warm-up for other exercises.


In less than 20 minutes a day, the Tibetans strengthen your muscular, glandular and nervous systems, energize & balance you.  They aim to normalize the speed of our chakras—the spinning energy centers along our spine—that affect every aspect of who we are and how we experience life. They balance our endocrine—the system that produces the harmones which regulate our organs and affect tissues within the body as well as the aging process. They can enhance bone mass, eliminate double chins, boost memory & immunity, improve eyesight, posture/spinal health, more. Done in the morning before breakfast, the practice can "energize you like a double expresso without any of the negative side effects." You'll feel healthier, more alive!

 

The Tibetans can be strenuous, but modifications are shown & practiced in this intro class open to students brand-new to yoga, to the Tibetans & to those wanting a refresher course.. Detailed HANDOUTS for home practice included.

 

Sign up for this series to:

    •  Learn how to perform each Tibetan with proper alignment and breathing in order to reap the most benefits from the practice and avoid injury/ramifications.
    • Learn and practice appropriate warm-ups to prepare the body for the Tibetans.
    • Practice Alternative Poses for each Tibetan, to use when one or more of the Tibetans is too challenging for you.
    • Focus on the impact the Tibetans have on the Chakra energy centers, glands and organs.
    • Receive important tips and cautions on how and when to practice these powerful Rites.
    • Get your questions answered about your practice, if you already practice these Rites.

                                           "I just love being able to do Tibetans in the a.m.!

                                            It really sets the tone for the rest of my day

                                            and I have this incredible abundance

                                            of energy throughout the day."  -Alicia R..

 

Your Instructor:  Luann, Dream Yoga Director and professional-level yoga instructor and therapist, has been teaching students The Five Tibetans since 2003.

Breath of Life! Pranayama for Greater Energy, Focus, Awareness & Calm

With  Luann Fulbright, 500 KYT, IYT & E-RYT               All Levels 

                                                           $75 / 3 Classes; $30 Drop In

How you feel at any given moment—physically, mentally and emotionally—is directly connected to your breath! Our breath is our friend, healer, teacher and awakener. It’s the primary link between our conscious mind, our subconscious, and universal consciousness.

 

Breath awareness and breath work (pranayama) is what transforms yoga from “just exercise” or physical therapy to a powerful tool for greater health and well-being.  It can raise energy and promote lightness of heart, awareness and clarity of mind. It can calm you and promote sleep, weight loss and intention/direction. All without any cost, office visits, pills, equipment or special talent!

 

Come to learn how to breathe, fully and deeply; and practice pranayama techniques common to classes at Dream Yoga, as well as others known for their therapeutic effects. Learn bandhas (yoga locks) & mudras that enhance pranayama. Each class includes gentle yoga stretching to enhance the breathing practices you'll engage in. You’ll learn a daily pranayama practice, and how to integrate pranayama into your yoga & meditation practices.


Come join us for a fun, interesting & energetic afternoon of exploration.

 

"Pranayama is the art and science of yogic breathing techniques, and these techniques will reliably produce the benefits listed above. Things that sound too good to be true - the latest fad diet, get-rich-quick schemes - usually are. But yogic breathing exercises actually deliver the benefits they promise..."

                                                            --Kripalu's Patton Sarley (Dinabandhu)

 

Your Instructor:  Luann, a professional-level experienced yoga instructor and therapist, has been practicing yoga for more than 30 years and teaching for 17. She is looking forward to helping you cultivate a deeper understanding and experience of your breath...bringing your yoga and meditation to life!

Friday, Sept 22, 6:30 – 9:00 p.m.

Tantra Yoga: Align with Nature's Way

Tantra is a path of co-participation with Grace. It's a dynamic balance of self-effort and surrender. Too much effort can lead to over-participation, which blocks the light of the universal. Learn how to soften the individual in order to align with a bigger energy. Practice standing poses, hip openers, twists, and forward bends.

Fee: $45 Early Bird; $50 Regular Tuition   Register Now

 

Saturday, Sept 23, 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Transform Challenges into Life-Enhancing Change

Challenges never come to put you down. They only come when you are ready to rise up and stand strong in your power. Learn how to engage with life’s challenges with an open heart that transforms obstacles into opportunities and stumbling blocks into stepping-stones. Build core strength, flexibility, and balance with asanas including standing poses, hip openers, inversions (with modifications and prep poses), and backbends.

Fee: $55 Early Bird; $60 Regular Tuition   Register Now

 

Saturday, Sept 23, 2:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.

Healing Sciatica and Other Hip, Pelvis & Lower Back Dysfunctions

Every cell in the body is pre-programmed for natural health and joy. Unfortunately, due to unconscious patterns of movement and self-limiting beliefs, we’re not able to fully access this power. During this workshop, you discover your body's optimal design for radiant health. Through the application of the therapeutic alignment essentials of Ashaya Yoga®, you learn how to prevent common aches and pains. We'll work with specific dysfunctions of the hips, pelvis, and lower back, including: sciatica, bulging discs, piriformis syndrome, SI joint dysfunction, tight psoas muscle, and more. You will leave this workshop with tools, exercises, and the knowledge to free yourself of hip and lower back pain.

Fee: $55 Early Bird; $60 Regular Tuition   Register Now

 

Sunday, Sept 24, 1:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.

Super Shoulder Openers --

A Therapeutic Yoga Practice for the Shoulders, Neck & Upper Back

The shoulders are our “should-ers”, and like the Greek mythic character, Atlas, the shoulders are where we carry the weight of the world. You’ll practice a sequence of therapeutic poses and exercises designed to free your shoulders, neck, and upper back, and restore balance. Using the Ashaya Yoga® method of precise alignment, learn how to build strength and relieve chronic pain. It’s time to let your burdens go!

Fee: $65 Early Bird; $70 Regular Tuition  Register Now
