Roll + Release + Restore

January 19, 2019, 1:30-4pm

at Namaste Grand Lake

Can’t get away for a long weekend but in desperate need of a break? Roll away the stress and restore your nervous system with 2.5 hours of yoga therapy ball massage and restorative yoga.

This workshop will focus on releasing tension in the neck, shoulders and back through targeted self-massage. Then rest in supported restorative shapes for a luxurious two hours. You will also walk away with practical tools to build self-care into your daily routine without making it one more thing on your to-do list.

Wherever I am, the world comes after me.

It offers me its busyness. It does not believe

that I do not want it. Now I understand

why the old poets of China went so far and high

into the mountains, then crept into the pale mist.

Yoga Nidra Immersion

January 25-27, 2019

at FIT House in Davis,  CA

Friday: 6:30-9:30pm, Saturday: 12-7pm, Sunday: 11am-4pm

 

Give yourself permission to rest and reset. Experience deeper levels of inner relaxation than you ever thought possible. Become skilled in leading a practice that has the ability to create profound personal change.

Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) is the powerful practice of conscious rest that systematically relaxes and unwinds physical, emotional, and mental tensions. When we sleep, we often continue to hold onto stress and sometimes wake up still feeling tired and overwhelmed. Yoga Nidra helps to break down these patterns through guided relaxation, breath awareness, and meditation to reach resting states usually only experienced in the deepest levels of sleep. The practice also holds the potential to turn your heartfelt desires into reality that will create positive ripple effects throughout your work- home- and personal-life. True healing begins when the body is at rest. 

This 20-hour intensive is for yoga teachers, students, counselors, health professionals, parents, and everyone interested in leading others to relax and transform their wellbeing. Throughout this course you will both experience Yoga Nidra and learn how to share it with others. At the end of the course, students will be equipped to provide this healing service to their communities. Experience for yourself the gift of giving others permission to rest, reset, and create lasting change.

In this immersion, you will explore:

  • The history of Yoga Nidra and how it has evolved

  • Yoga Nidra within the context of yogic philosophy and western science

  • The therapeutic benefits of Yoga Nidra

  • Meditation and pranayama techniques

  • How to create an environment of deep relaxation for yourself and others

  • Voice quality and pace; and exploration of music, postures and props

  • The power of space as a teacher or student in this practice
