While our YS&S classes are Level 1-2, this class will be for All Levels. Class includes total body stretching with a special emphasis on tension-prone areas-neck, shoulders, lower back, hips & hamstrings/legs. We also do joint-freeing movements, detoxing twists & passive holding of poses, and surrendering to gravity to release deeply held tightness. Holding of poses and repetition help us strenghten. Focus on breathing & relaxation techniques balance the nervous/endocrine systems.

Special for Your Winter Break

Tension Tamer Yoga for Every Body

 Let Go, Create Space, Evolve!

With Anita Schill, 500-RYT

                                                                   $28 Early Bird; $34 Regular Tuition

                                                                   Reserve Your Space!   All Levels

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 puts 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.

 

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. This workshop is also great for athletes who want to perform their best.


Please join us for this special Winter Break Workshop/Practice Class and invite the family! Recommended for ages 14 to 95!    All Levels Welcome


About Your Instructor: Anita Schill, RYT-500.  Anita's 500-Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training focused on yoga therapy and innovative approaches to releasing tension from the body, which opens space for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual expansion. She looks forward to sharing these approaches with you over the Winter Break at Dream!

Introduction to Mindfulness

Meditation for Stress Reduction:

With Jon Waterman                                                              Beginners, All Levels

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

Co-Sponsored with IMCW

Insight Meditation Community of Washington


Winter is the perfect time to meditate--to slow down, go inside, focus and reflect.


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.

Dynamic Gentle Yoga

                                                                                                        Complete Extended Weekend

                                            $205 Early Bird Fee, registering by Dec19; $230 Regular Tuition 

       

Gentle Yoga meets you where you are.

Dynamic Gentle Yoga takes you where you want to go.

Join Kripalu Master Teacher Rudy Peirce – known as ‘The Master of Mellow”—for this special extended weekend for students of all levels, teachers and teacher trainees.

 

Says Rudy: The full weekend is designed to be a nourishing selection of yoga experiences in the Dynamic Gentle style, progressing from a welcoming classic Gentle Yoga experience of dynamic self-care to expanding range of motion, specifically in the chest, opening the heart and lungs. The third “act” of this weekend is a restorative experience Saturday afternoon, complete with a healing Yoga Nidra.

       While each of these workshop experiences will include illuminating the teaching techniques employed to deliver the experience, it is in Sunday’s day-long session (see below & register separately) that will we tease apart the alchemy of guiding movement in such a way as to provide a transformational experience that is highly accessible.

       Our five act play resolves with a journey into the heart of meditation practice on Monday eve. Swami Kripalu taught that, if there is no meditation, there is no yoga. It is when the activities of mind settle that the portals to connection with true spirit, the eternal self within, become possible. And from this deep inner connection, we can each move forward returning to our life missions and service of family, friends and community.


Handouts. While everything you need is inside of you. If you need reminders, there will be handouts with inspiration for each session. It’s human to forget!

 

Friday Evening  Jan 9, 6:30P - 9:00P   (For All Levels)

Dynamic Gentle Yoga – Deep Practice, Gentle Style

Gentle Yoga meets you where you are. Dynamic Gentle Yoga takes you where you want to go.

In this workshop, you’ll be guided to go deeper into your poses by exploring your range of motion. You’ll breathe deeper in your practice than you ever thought possible, as you open the channels of your body’s vitality with graceful movement. Experience inner peace, connection and liberating insight.

$45 Early Bird Fee, registering by Dec19; $55 Regular Tuition 


Saturday Morning  Jan 10, 9:30A - 12:30P  (For All Levels)

Expand Your Range: Techniques & Practice to Open the Chest, Shoulders & Back

The body naturally becomes constricted in the area of the heart and lungs, restricting the flow of energy and innate intelligence in these vital organs. Gentle back extensions save us from curled shoulder and chest creep, literally opening to breath and receive life more fully.  In this workshop, you will release the restriction of habitual forward reaching through a specific sequence that opens the chest, shoulders and back. You will receive the joy of mastering supported back extensions that open the heart. Plus you will experience the progressive-stretch-deep-release approach, resolving deep-seated chronic tensions and stimulate your mood.

$65 Early Bird Fee, registering by Dec19; $70 Regular Tuition 

 

Saturday Afternoon  Jan 10, 2:30P – 5:30P  (For All Levels)

Restorative Yoga, Gentle Yoga & Yoga Nidra: Techniques & Practice

This is deep-dish, deep-healing gentle yoga, designed to de-stress, nourish and release unconsciously-held stuff that you don’t need anymore. Treat yourself to this layered approach to resilience, beginning with supported restorative poses to engage the relaxation response of the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS). Next we’ll release stiffness and physical blockage with gentle yoga movement stimulating the nourishing flow of circulation and energy. Finally we’ll enter into the profound meditative experience of Yoga Nidra. In Yoga Nidra, while you completely relax, your attention will be guided throughout all the levels of your multi-dimensional being, to release repressed, toxic experiences from your subconscious realm. We’ll replace the toxic negatives with affirming positives, planting new seeds to bring more freedom into your life. You don’t have to do anything. Just lay down, relax and pay attention as best you can. Consider it a yoga tune-up!

Monday Evening  Jan 12, 6:30P - 9:00P   (For All Levels)

Dynamic Gentle Yoga & Meditation: Techniques & Practice

Experience the refined techniques to steady the dualistic, thinking mind activity. Come into the stillness that you are, and access the wisdom of intuition that is the promise of meditation. “Meditation is integral to yoga. Because people are different, various approaches to meditation have evolved to suit their needs. Seekers should experiment with a variety of techniques until they find one to their liking. But if there is no meditation, it cannot be called yoga.” – Swami Kripalu

Divine SleepYOGA NIDRA: Stretch & Restore!

Gentle Stretching & Guided Relaxation

Larkin Goff, RYT, Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra Instructor       Beginners, All Levels

                                                               $17 Registered Students; $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!

Mindfulness and Meditation.  It’s on the cover of Time Magazine.  It’s in the curriculum for the United States Marines.  It’s in the public school systems and underwritten by insurance companies.

 

This wave of interest in meditation is equal to, if not greater than the wave of interest in yoga years ago.  As you develop your skills in guiding meditation, you can reach a wide audience of those who seek relief from stress and suffering.

 

Sudhir Jonathan Foust is co-leading a 500-hour Kripalu Yoga Teacher Training module at Dream Yoga Studio in McLean, Virginia.  He and Luann, Dream Yoga Studio and Wellness Center’s founder and owner, will share some of the latest research on meditation, plus give you an overview of the upcoming Kripalu module to be held at Dream Yoga April 8-16, 2015 - "Guiding Meditation and Advanced Asana.”

 

Following a guided meditation, we’ll explore the following:

  • What we are learning from the latest cutting-edge research on mindfulness
  • The arising of the ‘wave’ of interest in meditation and new great opportunities for yoga teachers
  • How Kripalu Yoga’s unique and accessible approach to meditation promotes healing and transformation
  • How the yogic approach to meditation works so well for western practitioners
  • Tips on leading meditation for new populations
  • Time for questions and discussion


Sudhir Jonathan Foust is cofounder of the Meditation Teacher Training Institute and a senior teacher and former president of Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health.  www.jonathanfoust.com

 PARTNER YOGA: Coming Together for Valentine's

With Dream Director Luann Fulbright                                                  All Levels

500-Hour KYT, E-RYT & IYT                            $55 for Two - Early Bird Discount Fee

                                                                        $65 Regular Tuition

Grab a “significant other”—a partner, spouse, friend or child age 15 or older—for a special time of connecting, stretching and relaxing! 

 

Join Dream Yoga Studio Director Luann and her partner Mr. Bill for a relaxing and playful evening learning partner-assisted yoga poses any body can do. Partner Yoga helps you do three things that studies have shown help you live a longer, healthier and happier life:

1) connect with others

2) reduce stress and

3) have a little fun.


Also, by working with a partner, you can get deeper in your stretches and postures than before. The warm-ups and poses will stretch you and help you become more flexible and strong. They’ll be geared to ease tightness in tension-prone areas--neck, shoulders, back, hips and hamstrings, as well as your face and feet!  For extra stress relief, we’ll add in a little Partner Yoga Massage, and end with guided relaxation.


Partner Yoga is a great way to introduce someone to yoga. Students of all ability levels welcome. No yoga experience required. Leave your fast-paced life a little while...to learn new ways to move, and celebrate support and connection!

 Mindfulness Meditation Mini-Retreat for 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  31st “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.

Saturday Morning: Yoga and the Voice - Part I

Dive into the powerful energetic coupling of yoga and sound through chanting, affirmation and exercises designed to loosen the body and breath. Utilizing this combination of sound, breath and rhythm balances the nervous system by tapping into the brain’s control tower—the hypothalamus. This helps us balance hormones and improve mood, appetite, sleep and more.

$65 Early Bird when paying by 2/6; $70 after     Register Today


Saturday Afternoon:  Yoga and the Voice Toolbox - Part II
Sink into a more in-depth experience of the Principles as a way to connect deeply to a place of “yes”.   Using the techniques we’ve learned so far we’ll incorporate additional elements of Yes-Yoga to encourage and explore freedom of expression and inner clarity.  Sound and silence merge to allow full embodiment.
Fee:  $65 Early Bird when paying by 2/6; $70 after

Sunday Morning: From the Silly to the Sacred “Yes”
“Lila”—Sankrit for “play”—is one of our most divine gifts. In this final session, we are called into sacred relationship, exploring the ancient dance of body and soul sounding. You’ll leave with an integrated understanding of how to apply the tools of the Yoga of Yes to your everyday life in order to live each day from the inquiring place of affirmation and transformation.

"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
