Experience the Rejuvenating Power

of Singing Bowls / 'Human Activation'


How can you be more clear and productive when you're awake, and be more restful when you sleep?

 

MODERN SCIENCE now agrees that deep meditation can give us all of this and then some including, reduced blood pressure, reduced anxiety, and increased overall wellness.

 

IN THE AMERICAN JOURNAL of Health Promotion,Tibetan Singing Bowls were used compared to silent meditation. Scientists found the singing bowls produced greater decreases in blood pressure and heart rate than simply silence alone.

 

HUMAN ACTIVATION has been featured in a recent Washington Post article in the Wellness section as the leaders in modern mindful meditation with their "sound bath" offerings.

 

Sound bath, what's that?

Human Activation sound frequency specialist, Robert Lee, will be playing several of these rare Singing Bowls, some of which are over 200 years old. A magical alchemy of 7-12 different metals rings in the past, present, and future for our relaxing enchantment.

 

Experience these gifts from the past in this NON-religious practice of our present.

  • 7:15 PM - Meditation Begins  Please refrain from entering after 7:15 PM to respect the meditation.**

About Your Instructor:  

DC award-winning sound frequency specialist Robert Lee from the Human Activation School will be offering the ancient sounds of antique Tibetan singing bowls. Robert also serves as a one-on-one private facilitator for Human Activation's Pathway of Liberation. From meditation facilitation ranging from local community churches, to corporate consulting and facilitation for strategic planning and regular company re-alignment for consistent cohesion and growth, Robert has worked with companies such as CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield and the Park Hyatt Washington D.C., as well as doing many volunteer efforts in the community such as working with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington. www.humanactivation.com

  • By working with the subconscious mind, Yoga Nidra can also help you make real and lasting changes.

Just one hour of Yoga Nidra equals 3 to 4 hours of deep restorative sleep.
 

Everyone can do this practice. No yoga or meditation experience needed. All you have to do is lie down and listen to the teacher's soothing voice. Wear comfortable clothes.


This is a great way to start or enhance a meditation practice.

Introduction to Mindfulness

Meditation & Stress Reduction

With Jon Waterman                                                  Beginners, All Levels

                                                                       $160/8 Classes; $24 Drop In 

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.


While these weekly classes are shorter than those in a traditional MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) course at Dream Yoga Studio, instructions will be given in all of the various meditation postures including sitting, kneeling, standing, walking and gentle flowing movements that release tension and stress to prepare for meditation.

Each class also includes a session of restorative, deep relaxation in the reclining posture. Many find this reclining practice an important pre-requisite prior to establishing and sustaining an individualized daily meditation practice.


Jon blends a secular approach to teaching meditation with traditional language from the dharma. His short talks explore how meditation not only lowers stress levels, but also restores a sense of balance in our busy lives. From the outset of the course, he invites each of us to answer the question, “Over the next eight weeks, how can we learn to genuinely enjoy a meditation practice, both on and off the cushion?”

 

Chairs, sitting cushions, blankets, eye masks and other necessary props will be provided. We suggest that, whenever possible, you wear or bring comfortable, loose fitting clothing.


This series is primarily for those new to meditation and/or want to reduce stress.

 

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 50th  “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.

Stretch Deeply. Relax Fully & Renew with

Yin & Restorative Yoga

With Luann Fulbright, MA, I-IAYT, 500 E-RYT 500, KYT 500 & IYT, YACEP

                                                                                                All Levels

Professional-Level Yoga Teacher & Therapist          $25/person Early Bird; $30

Join Dream Yoga Studio Director & Yoga Therapist Luann for a special practice people adore. This is a perfect class for the fall and busy holidays -- help you slow down, let go, reflect and realize alert calmness.

 

With time, gravity, sitting and our various activities, our joints become compressed and the connective tissue that surrounds the joints can become hard and immobile. Yin Yoga comes to the rescue, using gentle pressure and longer holds of postures to safely stimulate the joints and ligaments in our bodies to improve strength, mobility and hydration to the joints. It’s an excellent practice to counter the effects of arthritis, and develop the “Witness Mind” (the mind that’s able to be present with “what is” without wanting to change it to be happy).

 

In Restorative Yoga, we’ll use blankets and other supportive props to get into nurturing and deeply restful postures that help:

  • Release chronically-held musculature tension
  • Turn off the fight-or-flight response, and
  • Turn on the relaxation response to lower blood pressure, combat fatigue & promote healing.

Gravity does a lot of the work while you are guided in breathing and relaxation techniques that quiet the mind and soothe the nervous system.

 

Tip: Comfort and ease in the body/mind/spirit develops best with regular practice, so registering for all of Luann's fall Yin & Restorative Yoga Practice Classes is recommended.


Your Instructor: Luann has been teaching yoga to students in group and private Yoga Therapy sessions for almost 20 years.

Join the Asana Evolution! Explore the New Mechanics of YOUR Alignment in Poses

With Catha Pavloff, E-RYT 200, RYT 500, YCEP         

                                                                    Advanced Beginners +

                                                     $35 EARLY BIRD; $45 thereafter

Thanks to exciting new advancements in bio-mechanics, the way we practice yoga is evolving. In fact, some of the alignment techniques taught in the past have proven to be injurious. We now know safer and more efficient ways to practice yoga, and to help you achieve the best alignment in your poses based on your body.


In this Workshop, you will:

  • Learn new alignment techniques for your core, back, shoulders, hips and knees using a "Teach the Students, Not the Pose" approach. One size does not fit all!
  • Breakdown several poses and then move through a practice using these new techniques.


This workshop is for advanced beginners and beyond. Those who have been practicing for many years may want to attend to learn the latest safe alignment approaches.


Fee includes a handout on the practice. YOGA TEACHERS earn 2.5 CE credits.


Your Instructor:  Dream Yoga Instructor Catha Pavloff

began practicing yoga in 2003 and has taught since 2011. 

Until recently, she often experienced minor aches and pains after yoga class. In fact, many experienced teachers and students have incurred more serious injuries because of years of flawed alignment, based on the science, or lack thereof, that was available at that time. Since Catha has implemented new alignment techniques based on exciting advances in bio-mechanics, her aches and pains--and many of her students' aches and pains--have disappeared. To acquire this knowledge, Catha has studied with expert teachers such as Tom Myers, Robin Rothenberg, and Donna Farhi, and Dr. Ginger Garner. She os passionate about sharing this knowledge so that others may truly experience the multitude of health benefits that a safe, mindful yoga practice has to offer.

Introduction to Practical Self-Defense for Women

For Moms, Daughters, Grandmoms, Aunts, Sisters (Ages 14+)

With Grandmaster Jeff Cook

                                                                                                     FEE:  $150 (Includes Handouts)

                                                                  $75 (50% Discount) for Additional Family Members 

This fall, summer, take action to feel the empowerment, confidence and sense of liberation that comes from knowing that you can effectively handle any situation that requires self-defense. Arm yourself…AND get a great workout!

 

This Mini-Course is given by Grandmaster Jeffrey Cook—Tai Qi and Qi Gong ShiFu at Dream. ShiFu Cook holds Master-level rank in several Combat Kung Fu styles, and is a 50-year practitioner and 30-year teacher of traditional Chinese martial arts. His students have included everyday people to members of US Special Forces.

 

Participants will be introduced to:

  • common-sense ideas of awareness

  • how not to appear an easy target

  • how to handle confrontation during and after an incident.

You will learn and practice an easy-to-remember 9 Movements that can be used to address the most common types of physical confrontation such as a wrist grab, shoulder grab, front and rear chokes, or bear hug from behind. The techniques taught in this class are direct and to the point, and many are the same used by the Special Forces and Special Police of countries around the world due to their simplicity and effectiveness.


Testimonials

“Master Cook has given valuable instruction in Self-Defense.  I have found the structure of the classes and the techniques taught have heightened my awareness of my surroundings and improved my self-confidence to repel an attacker in the event of an assault. This is a very important class for women today.  Kudos, Master Cook!”  --Susan McKensie

 

“Jeff is an excellent teacher. Through his patient and systematic instruction of the techniques, reflexes and attitudes involved in effective self-defense, he has instilled in me confidence in my ability to defend myself against a variety of different attackers.  Like Jeff, I believe that no one should be a victim.”  –Joan Grimbert

 

“I highly recommend Jeff Cook's self-defense class.  Jeff has an incredible amount of experience in martial arts and Tai Chi but, more importantly, he is an excellent instructor.  I took his self-defense class a few months ago and learned valuable lessons that have stayed with me.  I hope I'm never in a situation where I have to use the tips I learned, but after taking this class I certainly feel better prepared to defend myself.”  --Susan Vincent

Improve Your Balance, Posture, Flexibility & Strength via Better Body Mechanics & Corrective Functionality

With Grandmaster Jeff Cook                                  All Levels. No experience needed.

                                                                                                  $35 Early Bird, $45 Regular Tuition

Come explore a combination of simple exercises most anyone can do that will help you align your spine, breathe better, improve balance, boost energy and increase strength.


In this Workshop, we will focus on the basic principles of the mechanics of movement and posture of the human body. Much of what will be presented is based on work developed by Charlie Weingroff (Corrective Functionality expert and Sports Medicine Phd.) and Katy Bowman (Corrective Functionality expert and author of Aligned and Well). You will also learn some Qi Gong exercises which are part of the ancient traditional Chinese Martial Arts which include Nei Chi and Tai Chi Chuan.


Discover how YOUR human body works and can work better:

  • When the skeleton is in alignment, good posture is achieved.
  • When good posture is achieved, all the organs and functions of the body perform at a more efficient level.
  • When the body moves at a high level of efficiency, it does not move as a collection of separate parts, but as a harmonious whole.

The overall result is better posture, better balance, increased strength, more!


Let Grandmaster Jeffrey Cook show you how ancient Chinese Qi Gong exercises can meld with the world of modern medical understanding of the human body to benefit us all.


Bring a notebook and, if you want, prepare to take pictures or video of Jeff's demonstrations to help you remember for home practice.
