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!

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.

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-Songwriter, Life Coach and life-long journal keeper Lauren Fulbright for a three-week journey that will free your creative energy and help you tap into your personal wisdom.


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 your thoughts, desires, fears and discoveries.
  • Find out how journaling can deepen (and inspire) your yoga practice and your life.


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.

  1. In class one, Connecting with the Heart and Mind, we'll start with practices that will help you tap into your own memory and heart for inspiration.

  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!

No previous yoga experience required.

Your Instructor: Lauren is a yoga instructor, life coach, singer-songwriter, journalist and life-long journal keeper in the Washington DC area.  In addition to being a Professional Level Kripalu Yoga Teacher, she is a certified instructor in Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra, Five Element Yoga, and the national Kripalu Yoga in the Schools Program for Teens.

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.

 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.
