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!

 Special 8-Week Course
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.

 Yoga for Life
A Weekend of

Re-Imagining & Redesigning the Life (and the Home Yoga Practice) You Want

                                                   Full Weekend Early Bird: $205; $230 after

                                                          Friday Only: $40 Early Bird; $50 after

Take yourself for an “Eight-Limbed Yoga Path Spin” where you make time for holistic yoga practices that include posture, breath, mindfulness and yogic philosophy to clean and clear the psychic/mind/body for a bold move towards the life you want.


With a mixture of direct experiences through your practices, lecture and discussion, we will visit these two questions, “What is important in your life right now?” and “How do you live a life that will reflect that importance?”


Rearranging your life—versus changing your life—are two different experiences that are both valid and important when we are reevaluating our lives.  So which is needed now?  We will use the Eight-Limbed Path from an ancient text, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, as our support/muse for the weekend exploration.  This text expounds on human’s true nature and provides maps and guides to liberation and fulfillment.  


At the end of the weekend, you’ll walk away with a self-designed Home Yoga Practice that supports your new lifestyle and make a commitment to a 21-days of practice to transform your ideas into to a real-life reality.  (There is scientific proof that it takes at least 21 days for any new habits to kick in.)  The 21-day period is not just a time where you attend whole-heartedly to your own possibility in growth, but also a time where you deepen your dedication to yourself.


So if  you want better health, or more joy, more love, or less anxiety…if you’ve reached the threshold of enough is enough…or you just want to live the life of your dreams, join this internationally-acclaimed instructor and teacher trainer for a weekend designed to lead you towards ultimate freedom and joy!


Engage in holistic and mind-clearing yoga practices:

  • Utilize Patanjali’s Eight-Limb Path as a guide to liberation and fulfillment

  • Answer key questions that will help you create a lifestyle --and design a supportive Home Yoga Practice--that reflect what's most important to you.

 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.

Each class will include an all-levels yoga practice, guided meditation and/or Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra, and liberating writing exercises designed to connect you to your truest self. 


You'll also receive a heart-opening home yoga practice and daily writing prompts to keep you feeling inspired throughout the 21 days.

  2. In week two, we'll be Diving Deep, as you explore poses and practices designed to deepen your sense of introspection.

  3. During our final week, you'll be Coming Home to your most authentic self through gentle restorative practice, yoga nidra and a writing exercise that will allow you to access your deepest truth.


For beginners and experienced writers alike!  Appropriate for ages 16 & up!

Half-Day INSIGHT DIALOGUE Retreat with Bhikkhu Sukhacitto, a Buddhist Monk in the Theravada Tradition

Introduced by Jon Waterman        

Co-Sponsored with IMCW (Insight Medication Community of Washington)

                                                                                                                        Space is Limited.

                                                        Register for $15 to Reserve Your Spot!                                                                           

Insight Dialogue is an interpersonal meditation practice that brings the mindfulness and tranquility of silent meditation directly into our experience with other people. As humans, we are relational beings; as we begin to wake up, clarity and freedom can illuminate our relationships with others. Insight Dialogue draws from traditional Buddhist wisdom, but it is not a Buddhist practice in the religious sense.


Bhikkhu Sukhacitto is an Insight Dialogue Teacher, born in Germany and ordained as a Buddhist Monk in 1986 in Thailand via Wat Suan Mokkh. In his experience, interpersonal meditation is an extremely helpful aid for the development of wholesome qualities. It bridges the gap between traditional silent meditation and our everyday lives and relations with other people. He sees Insight Dialogue as an important tool for liberation. He will be introduced and supported during this Retreat by Dream’s lead Meditation Instructor Jon Waterman.


Space is limited, so pre-registration is strongly encouraged. The $15 minimal registration fee reserves your space. As is the custom within the monastic community, a dana offering for Bhante will be greatly appreciated. Your donations may be made by check or cash upon arrival or at the end of the workshop. Bhante often suggests a monastic or charitable organization that he would like his dana to be given to.


Although chairs and sitting cushions will be available, you are welcome to bring your own meditation cushion or bench.

Mindfulness Communication: Reducing Stress

in Relationships

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.


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.
