Divine SleepYOGA NIDRA: Stretch & Restore!

Gentle Stretching & Guided Relaxation

Larkin Goff, RYT, Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra Instructor

Lauren Fulbright, 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!

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.

The author of the groundbreaking Yoga for Depression (Broadway Books) and the new Yoga Skills for Therapists: Effective Practices for Mood Management (W.W. Norton) guides you through evidence-based pranayama breathing exercises, accessible postures, mudras, mantras and meditation for meeting and managing your mood.

LifeForce Yoga® interweaves the power of an ancient discipline with current scientific findings to help you release what’s no longer serving you—without a story attached!

"Amy Weintraub’s Yoga for Depression offers us a powerful and comprehensive guidebook that provides the reader with a precise path for healing from depression. This book belongs in the hands of every person who experiences depression and in the library of every therapist who works with people suffering from depression."

MORE Tension Tamer Yoga for Every Body

 Let Go, Create Space, Flow!

With Anita Schill, 500-RYT

                                                                 $35 Early Bird; $45 Regular Tuition

                                                                   Reserve Your Space!   All Levels

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.

Back by popular demand, this workshop will offer MORE Tension Tamer Yoga.

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.

Tension Tamer Yoga is for everybody - no matter your age, your health status, or whether you’ve done yoga before or not. No previous experience or workshop needed.

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 Spring Break at Dream!

 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.

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.

Learn to lead your students and clients into deeper levels of freedom and health than they ever imagined possible. You will leave this training feeling confident, enthused and delighted to offer the gift of Divine Sleep yoga nidra.

  • Relax into openness, freedom, and bliss
  • Learn how to deeply nourish yourself and others
  • Explore yoga nidra within yogic tradition and Western science
  • Awaken a sense of wonder and creative energy
  • Discover how to craft effective classes
  • Cultivate voice quality and pacing

"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
