Divine Sleep YOGA NIDRA: Gentle 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!

Empowering

Practices Can

techniques that

4-Week Short Course
Mindfulness Meditation Strategies --R.A.I.N & E.F.T. (Tapping) to Release Stress

With Jon Waterman                                 No Meditation Experience Needed

                                                                                               $100 / 4 Classes


So much of the stress that we experience in this moment is echoes from the past. This deeply embedded conditioning influences not only how we deal with our present circumstances, but often generates unnecessary fear of how things will work out in the future.

 

This Short Course will combine the wisdom of the now popular mindfulness meditation strategy, known via the acronym -- R.A.I.N. with the techniques of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). It will consist of some guided meditations and relaxation, as well as time to explore the potency of EFT.

 

R.A.I.N is a mindfulness strategy that invites the meditator to Recognize, Accept, Investigate & Not-Identify – steps that empower us to “know” and “let go.”

 

Emotional Freedom Technique is a powerful, yet surprisingly simple method which can help us let go in a way that, after we practice, we know that there has been a healing shift. Clinical trials, including those done at the Harvard Medical School, have shown that EFT tapping is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress. It can produce real, lasting breakthroughs and can significantly improve—or even eliminate—conditions that hospital treatments, medication and years of psychotherapy often fail to adequately deal with.


Each class will included discussions and guided meditation/relaxation.

Come see for yourself!

 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 44th  “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.

Introduction to Mindfulness

Meditation & Stress Reduction

Co-Sponsored with IMCW

Insight Meditation Community of Washington


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.

Tantra is a path of co-participation with Grace. It's a dynamic balance of self-effort and surrender. Too much effort can lead to over-participation, which blocks the light of the universal. Learn how to soften the individual in order to align with a bigger energy. Practice standing poses, hip openers, twists, and forward bends.

Healing Sciatica and Other Hip, Pelvis & Lower Back Dysfunctions

Every cell in the body is pre-programmed for natural health and joy. Unfortunately, due to unconscious patterns of movement and self-limiting beliefs, we’re not able to fully access this power.

We'll work with specific dysfunctions of the hips, pelvis, and lower back, including: sciatica, bulging discs, piriformis syndrome, SI joint dysfunction, tight psoas muscle, and more. You will leave this workshop with tools, exercises, and the knowledge to free yourself of hip and lower back pain.
