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
A special opportunity to become familiar with the time-tested, relaxing & restorative qualities of Mindfulness Meditation. We'll explore how meditation helps lower stress levels, and be more balanced and healthy.
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, to prepare for meditation. As weeks progress, instructions will cover meditation while sitting, kneeling, standing & 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, but all are welcome to come and practice. 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.

Divine SleepYOGA NIDRA: Stretch & Restore!
Gentle Stretching & Guided Relaxation
Larkin Goff, RYT Beginners, All Levels
$17/$15 Registered Students; $20/$22 Drop In
Yoga Nidra is a deep relaxation technique that’s been proven to reduce stress levels and promote mental clarity & peace of mind. As the pace of modern life increases exponentially, the timeless practice of Yoga Nidra has come to the foreground as an extremely effective tool for living with greater health and ease in the modern age. It’s an accessible form of yoga that can help you balance an active yoga practice and lifestyle.
Based in the tradition of compassionate self-inquiry, Yoga Nidra takes you through the koshas, or layers of being, to activate your body’s relaxation response and promote healing/transformation on all levels—physical, energetic, mental, emotional & spiritual levels. Studies show that, although the mind remains conscious during the practice, the levels of relaxation achievable during YN are deeper than regular sleep.
Each class begins with gentle movement & closes with a reflection to mindfully re-enter the world. A regular Yoga Nidra practice has been proven to help alleviate stress, anxiety, insomnia and depression. It calms the nervous system, promotes a positive outlook, and lifts your spirits. The visualization & sensory awareness used during YN directly communicate with your subconscious mind—where real and lasting changes begin!
Come to experience what 45 minutes of shavasana—lying down as you’re guided to deeper & deeper states of relaxation—can do for you! Absolutely NO yoga or meditation experience needed. Wear comfortable clothing for gentle movements to prepare for this guided experience.
Students who do Yoga Nidra say they LOVE the way they feel afterward—noticeably
looser, freer…and a little more enlightened too!

The 30 Essential Yoga Poses...Continued
With Steve Wolf, E-RYT 500 Beginners, Teachers, All Levels
$40 Early Bird $46 Thereafter
Why is creating STABILITY in the elbows, shoulders, knees and elsewhere so important to safe yoga practice? How do you create it? Are you aware of--and know how to fine-tune the core pose of EVERY pose? How do you "bring your pelvis along" into poses?
These are just some of the important alignment principles you'll explore in this workshop based on Senior Iyengar yoga teacher Judith Lasater’s classical modern yoga text, “30 Essential Yoga Poses for Beginning Students and Their Teachers.” Instructor Steve Wolf, who has studied with Lasater, will bring these poses to life in this second workshop on this topic.
Review—or learn for the first time—how to maximize the benefits of each pose, and how to do them safely. We’ll also cover the fundamental importance of alignment during your practice and in daily life.
This workshop is appropriate for All Levels…from those just starting yoga through advanced students and teachers. Workshop attendance can be used for Yoga Alliance continuing education credits in the category of 'Techniques,Training and Practice.'
No need to have attended Steve's first workshop to attend this one.

| Mindfulness Meditation Mini-Retreat for Stress |
With Jon Waterman All Levels
$39/person Early Bird Discount
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.
- Reduce high blood pressure.
- Strengthen coping skills.
- Sleep better.
- Better manage pain.
- 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 26th “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.

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

Drawing from the traditions of Kripalu Yoga, Integrative Yoga Therapy and Ayurveda, this workshop invites you to dive deeply into your five elements: earth, water, fire, air and ether.

Fine Tune & Recommit to this Powerful Yoga Practice
With Luann Fulbright, MA, 500-KYT, E-RYT & IYT
$42 Early Bird Fee; $48 Regular Tuition
The Five Tibetans is an ancient yoga practice developed by Tibetan monks to live longer, more vibrant, healthy lives. In less than 20 minutes a day, the Tibetans will strengthen, energize and balance you, and help you feel healthier, more alive! Some Dream students already have experienced some of the effects of this .
This class is an opportunity for those who have learned The Five Tibetans and practiced them--even for a little while & stopped—to practice together and renew your commitment to the practice. (Those who want to...will commit to a 21-Day Challenge to practice.) In practicing together, we mirror the Himalayan Practice Club that met regularly to practice with Colonel Bradford—the man who brought The Tibetan Rites to the West after living with Tibetan monks. As with all yoga, practicing together boosts our commitment, energy and knowing.
We’ll review warm-ups (& explore some new ones) that aid the practice, and alternative poses you can do to develop your practice. We’ll share our experience of practicing the Tibetans—our successes and challenges. We’ll also practice the 6th & 7th Tibetans; discuss the diet and nutrition recommended for Tibetan practitioners; and end with a relaxing Chakra Meditation that goes with the practice.
Prerequisite: Luann's "Learn & Practice the Five Tibetans" workshop, or some practice of The Tibetans. Or sign up for an Introductory Private Class with Luann (Recommended: 2-hour private session). For Private Intro Session (2 hours/$150) email Luann@DreamYogaStudio.com
