Divine SleepYOGA NIDRA: Stretch & Restore!

Gentle Stretching & Guided Relaxation

Lauren Fulbright, RYT, Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra Instructor      

                                                                                    Beginners, All Levels

                                                          $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!

Day-Long Guided MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) RETREAT

Jon Waterman  with Luann Fulbright                                               Fee: $75

This Day-Long Guided Retreat is an intensive 6.5-hour session of mindfulness practices – combining sitting meditation with gentle yoga, walking, eating, deep relaxation and guided reflections – intended to assist participants of the MBSR course at Dream Yoga in firmly and effectively establishing the use of mindfulness across multiple situations in their lives, while simultaneously preparing them to utilize mindfulness far beyond the conclusion of the MBSR program. It will take place between weeks 6 and 7 of the MBSR course. Having established a daily mindfulness practice during the previous 6 weeks, participants will be better prepared to benefit from this retreat.


While attendance is required for participants in the ongoing MBSR course (and included in their MBSR Course Registration Fee), graduates of all of Jon’s Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation and Stress Reduction courses are invited to register.

Space is limited; so please get on the Wait List if it is activated, and we will let you know as soon as a spot becomes available.

Do you want a REAL HAPPY Hour? Then come to Dream’s new one-hour Yoga Nidra class - now on the Fourth Friday of every month. You’ll be so glad you did!

In just one hour, this very simple, enjoyable and effortless, guided meditation practice can melt away exhaustion and elevate your mood. Bliss that has no negative side effects!

Yoga Nidra induces the relaxation response—your body’s healing state where revitalization and regeneration occur.  It’s shown that just one hour of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to 3 or 4 hours of regular sleep. You’ll feel refreshed and reconnected to your innate peace and clarity.

What a great investment of your time! A great way to end your week, and start your weekend.

Absolutely NO yoga or meditation experience is needed. After a little stretching, you will rest in stillness, lying down in savasana relaxation pose or in a seated position…while being guided into the core of your being by your teacher’s soothing voice.

Note: The more Yoga Nidra you do, the greater the benefits. Also consider joining our regular, weekly Divine Sleep Yoga.  See description above.  Register Here

Backs, Bellies & Balance!

With Catha Pavloff, RYT                                        Beginners, All Levels

One of the most important aspects of healthy aging, at any age, is maintaining a healthy core – your abdominals and back. A healthy core supports the spine, so that the burden of the body’s weight is not placed on the bones and joints, causing misalignment and pain.


A close second is sustaining the ability to balance, so that we ward off falls and minimize their impact. Death from falls is the leading cause of death by accident in the elderly.


In this workshop you’ll learn how a yoga practice integrates both of these and more. 

  • Yoga postures that build core strength, flexibility and balance.

  • How to engage in pranayama (breathing practices) that calm/focus your mind and help you move through poses safely and more efficiently.

  • The importance of self-awareness, so that you can take what you learn in yoga off the mat and into your life. For example, by changing the way you stand, sit, move and breathe.

We invite anyone over the age of 21 and of any yoga experience level to attend this workshop. Modifications and adjustments will be offered.

Your Instructor: Catha Pavloff is passionate about active, healthy aging. She is dismayed that our increasingly sedentary lifestyles are interfering with our ability to do so. Catha is on a personal crusade to introduce others to the transformative power of yoga and its ability to help us age healthfully in many aspects of our being: physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

Introduction to Mindfulness

Meditation & Stress Reduction

With Jon Waterman                                                        Beginners, All Levels

                                                                     $20/$120=6 Classes; $24 Drop In                                                                                   

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.


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.

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  34th & 35th  “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.

 Two 8-Week Courses
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

Jon Waterman  with Luann Fulbright                                           Fee: $480   

                                               (includes 8 classes, Materials & 1 Day-Long Retreat)

MBSR is an 8-week intensive training in mindfulness meditation, based on ancient healing practices. Mindfulness practice is ideal for cultivating greater awareness of the unity of mind and body, as well as of the ways the unconscious thoughts, feelings and behaviors can undermine emotional, physical and spiritual health. The mind is known to be a factor in stress and stress-related disorders, and meditation has been shown to positively affect a range of autonomic physiological processes, such as lowering blood pressure and reducing overall arousal and emotional reactivity.

A Mind-Body Experience. In addition to mindfulness practices, MBSR uses yoga to help reverse the prevalence of disuse atrophy from our culture's largely sedentary lifestyle, especially for those with pain and chronic illnesses. This program brings meditation and yoga together so that the virtues of both can be experienced simultaneously.

Good for All. MBSR was founded by Jon Kabat-Zinn PhD at the Stress Reduction Clinic of UMass Medical School and described in his book, Full Catastrophe Living. The technique was originally developed for use in hospitals with patients suffering from painful, chronic or disabling conditions. It was found that, following participation in an MBSR program, participants’ levels of anxiety and depression decreased and their sense of well-being increased. Extensive research has shown that the Stress Reduction Program can be beneficial for anyone, regardless of state of health.

Time-Tested & Renown.  Since 1979, more than 18,000 people have completed the 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program. It is a course that helps participants draw on their own inner resources and actively engage in caring for themselves and finding greater balance, ease, and peace of mind.  The MBSR Program has been featured in: Bill Moyers’ PBS documentary Healing and The Mind, NBC Dateline, ABC’s Chronicle, The Boston Globe, CNN and in various national print media. The central focus of the Program is intensive training in mindfulness meditation and its integration into the challenges/ adventures of everyday life.

Research evidence suggests MBSR can help:

  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Improve self-esteem, self-acceptance, energy and confidence
  • Cultivate powerful inner resources for coping with life stressors
  • Reduce anxiety
  • Prevent relapse of depression
  • Reduce negative emotions responding to stress
  • Manage chronic pain
  • Address chronic health conditions including high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, heart disease, asthma, GI distress, and skin disorders
  • Cope with short- and long-term stressful situations
  • Experience growth in the brain areas associated with learning, memory, focus, attention, emotional regulation, and empathy
  • Enhance compassion and altruism
  • Enhance relationships and communication skills
  • Help parents reduce  pregnancy-related anxiety
  • Support professionals in coping with stress, connecting with clients and/or patients, and reducing burnout-induced by negative emotions and anxiety
  • Veterans and others with PTSD
  • Those suffering with obesity by increasing “mindfulness of eating”
  • Increase general health and well-being through a focus on prevention and improved awareness of what's truly harmful and helpful.


Course Format & Content

The course consists of 8 weekly classes with one extended 6½-hour “Day-Long Retreat.”  This course closely follows the recommended guidelines for content, format and number of hours as intended by Jon Kabat-Zinn and The Center for Mindfulness at UMASS.

The course includes:

  • Workbook/Manual and CD’s with guided meditations and yoga instructions
  • Guided instruction in mindfulness meditation practices
  • Gentle stretching and simple yoga practices
  • Interactive exercises to apply mindfulness to challenging situations in everyday life
  • Practical, simple and effective techniques that have been proven through efficacy studies to both reduce stress as well as release our limiting stories
  • Small and large group discussions
  • Daily at-home practice (30-45 minutes per day) with specially designed materials
  • Invitation to attend day-long retreats after the 8-week course

Open to All Levels. No previous meditation or yoga experience needed.

Tension Tamer Yoga for Every Body

Flow through the Holidays with Ease!

With Anita Schill, 500-RYT

                                                                   $35 Early Bird; $42 Regular Tuition

                                                                   Reserve Your Space!   All Levels

Back by popular demand, this workshop will offer MORE Tension Tamer Yoga! Tension Tamer Yoga is for everybody - no matter your age, your health status, or whether you’ve done yoga before or not.

In today's non-stop, 24/7 society, each of us carries unwanted tension in our body. This tension and tightness—which can increase during the busy-ness of the holidays—put you on a path to dis-ease and reduced physical and mental functioning. You don't feel as vibrant as you once did, and you don't move with the fluidity of your youth.

By taming tension, you create space for your body to begin to heal itself. Your body will come into better alignment. You’ll have fewer aches and pains, and more ease and grace as you move through each day and into the New Year!

In this workshop you will use a variety of balls, massage peanuts, and other yoga props to help tame tension and create space for your body to begin to release, relax, open and heal itself. Special emphasis will be on neck and shoulders, as well as establishing a solid foundation and freeing your pelvis. This workshop is also great for athletes who want to perform their best. No previous yoga experience needed to benefit from this workshop – just a desire to be free of muscle tension and stiffness.

All Levels Welcome

About Your Instructor: Anita Schill, PhD, RYT-500, completed her 500-hour advanced yoga teacher training with a focus on yoga therapy and innovative approaches to releasing tension from the body, which opens space for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual expansion. She will complete her studies for certification as a yoga therapist this year. Anita says: “There is nothing more satisfying to a teacher than to witness students as they experience the release of tension and reclaim freedom of movement!” She looks forward to sharing therapeutic approaches and techniques with you this Fall at Dream!

Post-Thanksgiving Turkey Twist Away with Luann

TWIST Away Tension, Tightness & Toxins.

Begin your holiday season with a lighter body, heart and mind!

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

Professional-Level Yoga Teacher & Therapist         $28/person Early Bird; $34 after

After a class that focuses on twisting, students often say, “I feel so good!”  “I feel lighter!” “Freer!”
          This special All-Levels practice class focuses on twists and techniques wisely planned after Thanksgiving to help you digest, detox and rinse away toxins--both tangible or intangible in your physical, mental and emotional systems. It will give you a de-stress kick start, as you enter the holiday season.

Post-Thanksgiving is a perfect time to do yoga poses that twist and turn you. Twists not only are "good for the gut." They get to the core of your tension, helping you feel less stressed, frustrated or anxious. They reinforce healthy posture, and relieve backaches by moving the spine through its full range of motion. They help with neck and shoulder pain which often lead to headaches.


Benefits of Twisting include:

  • Help maintain maintain flexibility in the intervertebral discs and ligaments
  • Wring out the internal organs to cleanse and detoxify the body
  • Improve digestion
  • Stimulate the seven chakras/energy centers
  • Stretch and strengthen the spine -- the seat of the nervous system
  • Help maintain flexibility in the intervertebral discs and ligaments
  • Alternately stretches and compresses each side of the chest to improve breathing/respiratory function
  • Helps you find emotional balance and stress relief
  • Stretches neck,  shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles (depending upon the specific twist)

This class will emphasize safe twisting alignment and have you twisting in new ways. We'll end class with deep relaxation to help you integrate the benefits of your practice.


Eat lightly before this class!  And plan to drink plenty of water before and after to enhance the detoxification process.

This improves not only our outlook…but also our health, happiness and leads us to self-awakening.


Who should attend? For everyone interested in guiding others to relax and heal –including yoga teachers, therapists, counselors, health professionals, caregivers and parents.

Learn to lead your students and clients into deeper levels of freedom and health than they ever imagined possible. You will leave this training feeling confident, enthused and delighted to offer the gift of Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra.

"A truly educational and transformative experience. The effects on me have been profoundly rejuvenative at both a personal and professional level. Jennifer is a truly knowledable and a compassionate teacher. I am definitely leaving with a greater sense of ease and relaxation. As a yoga instructor, I have the confidence and motivation now to offer this practice to my students."  ~ Eric Yatar


"The best part of the Yoga Nidra Teacher Training was the integration of Yoga Nidra with the knowledge and opportunities to practice. I felt like this training was truly multi-dimensional and well integrated. The sessions to practice postures and Yoga Nidra built up knowledge from slides and manual. Then the practice time to create and deliver Yoga Nidra scripts was developed incrementally and reinforced through all the above that it really came together for me. I leave with a fuller appreciation of myself as a whole being." ~ Lisa Bell
