Yoga Nidra And Sankalpa Sakti

In our daily lives, we rarely experience true rest—the kind of rest that enables our bodies to restore and repair as they are meant to. Approximately 70 million people in the U.S. suffer from some form of sleep disorder, which means that even as we sleep, we are not finding the balance our bodies need to achieve homeostasis. As we normalize stress, fatigue, and imbalance, we experience different levels of illness.

Yoga nidra or “yogic sleep,” a sleep-based meditation using breath, relaxation, and visualization, offers healing and true balance. Its effects address physical, mental, and spiritual dis-ease, and it has been used successfully to treat PTSD, addiction, and ADHD. As a yogic practice, it allows us to release deeply embedded and unconscious patterns and become more fully who we are.

This training is open to all students regardless of skill level or practice. You’ll experience firsthand the effect of yoga nidra and learn its foundations as well as how to conducts sessions for individuals and groups.

April 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 13 & 14 2019

Self-Care for the holidays - Myofascial Release + Yoga Nidra

Before the holidays get into full swing come roll and relax with Gwynn Ellicott and Jennifer Reuter.

Learn two self-care practices that you can use at home to get you through the holidays, and throughout the year to increase your overall well-being! 

Gwynn will teach us about Myofascial Release Therapy and how to use Yoga Tune-Up Balls. This helps to relieve the hidden tension in your connective tissues that are inhibiting mobility. 

Decreased mobility, stagnation and sedentary conditions can increase risk for injuries, and the circulation and communication networks of the body can become compromised, which leads to more fatigue and dullness. 

Working with Myofascial Release increases mobility, circulation and increases energy. 

Jennifer will then teach us about the powerful lying down meditational practice of Yoga Nidra. This practice not only recharges the body and mind but has been shown to increase dopamine by 65%. Dopamine is one of the central power-drivers for all of the work your brain does. From memory to learning, to being motivated, paying attention and being HAPPY. Yoga Nidra creates bliss for your brain. 

Price: $20

Shadow & Light: An Afternoon Of Rewarding Self-Care

Yoga, Meditation & Sound Bath + Lunch at Fete

It is our belief, that every one of us hold both shadow and light. 

Soften the “armor” that has built up around your body.

Open up your body so you can shine a light on some of the shadows you may have. These shadows can be unconscious thought patterns and/or positive things about yourself, that you haven’t fully embraced yet.

This practice will celebrate the light that is already present, and possibly even highlight the forgotten, dormant shadows that are overlooked

Sarah’s asana practice will focus on opening up the heart and shoulders with backbends, hip openers and grounding postures that activate the parasympathetic nervous system.

From there, you will be invited to lay back, as Jennifer guides you through a nourishing yoga nidra meditation practice and sound bath using Tibetan singing bowls.

Immediately following the event we will walk across the street to Fete where, local chef and fellow yogi, Robynne Mai’i will prepare us a simple, yet elegant lunch prepared with local ingredients.

Asana led by Sarah McTee
