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!

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.

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

 6-Week Mini-Course:
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.

NEW 4-Week Mini-Course

Yoga & Journaling:

Developing a Contemplative Practice

With  Lauren Fulbright, MA, 200-KYT & RYT       Beginners, All Levels 

                                                              $108 for 4 Classes;  $33 Drop In

Yoga and Journaling have a lot of wonderful things in common:

They both can help us focus, reflect, get in touch with our true feelings, come more present and open to life in each moment, tap into our most creative self, de-stress, get healthier, grow and thrive.

Join Dream Yoga Teacher, Journalist, Singer-Song Writer, Life Coach practitioner, and life-long journal-keeper Lauren Fulbright for a four-week journey into yoga and journaling that will free your creative energy and help you tap into your personal insight/wisdom—the guru within.


Each class will start with a Gentle, All-Levels Yoga practice that will relax and open our hearts and minds. In moments between yoga and guided meditation practices, we will delve into the liberating writing processes such as free-associative writing.


In an atmosphere of non-judgmental curiosity and acceptance, you’ll:

    • Be inspired to capture the inner messages or revelations that come to you on your yoga mat and off.

    • Discover how your Yoga Journal can be a place to work out among other things your thoughts, desires, fears and discoveries.

    • Find out how journaling can deepen (and inspire) your yoga practice and your life.

Registration for all 4 classes encouraged.


Your Instructor:  Lauren Fulbright provides group and private Yoga Instruction for Teens, Tweens, Children, Families and Adults at Dream Yoga.  In addition to being a Kripalu Yoga teacher, she is a Certified Instructor in Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra and the national Kripalu Yoga in the Schools program for Teens.   She holds a B.A. in Psychology and M.A. in Journalism, and is a practitioner in the Martha Beck Life Coach Training Program.  Lauren is passionate about helping others experience for themselves how a regular practice of yoga and journaling can help you make lasting changes, find balance and peace, pursue your calling, and build a full and beautiful life.  Visit her at and find her on facebook at:

 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  33rd  “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.

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.

Divine Sleep® Yoga Nidra has the power to transform us at our core. This ancient tantric meditation systematically guides you through each layer of being — the koshas. These include the physical, energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual layers, making this a healing practice that is inclusive of our whole being.  Yoga Nidra induces the relaxation response, our body’s own healing state where revitalization and regeneration occur.  Divine Sleep brings us effortlessly, compassionately and rapidly into this healing state.  Yoga Nidra has the power to transform core negative beliefs in our deepest levels of being. 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.

"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
