Module 6:

Yoga Nidra

Jan 31- Feb 2, Feb 12 

(Friday 5-8pm, Sat & Sun 9:30am-4:30pm, Wed. 6-8pm)

Yoga Nidra, also known as physic sleep, has been around for hundreds of years but only recently introduced to the states in the 1960's. The method consists of a meditation that gently works through the energetic layers of the body. With each segment of the guided script read, a layer is peeled back and the practitioner is able to settle deeper into their subconscious. Yoga Nidra encourages total surrender allowing the mind to quiet and the body to become completely relaxed. This weekend is a certification in itself. You will enjoy time to both teach and be a student. Discover the scientific side of Yoga Nidra including how it affects our brain and neural pathways as well as the energetic benefits. Come away from this time with confidence and cadence to lead this beautiful and restful practice.

Module 7:

Pranayama & Meditation

Mar 1-2, Mar 12

(Sat & Sun full weekend, Wed. 6-8pm)

Pranayama is the practice of consciously controlling your breath to free the obstacles of both mind and body so that your vital force (prana) can flow with ease. With a knowledge of how to tap into a more controlled breath, discover the ability to enhance your experience on the mat as well as in your daily life. Within the weekend you will also learn what meditation really is. Often we are told that meditation is the practice of quieting the mind, which yes that is a part of it. What is most profound is that meditation helps the mind do what it was intended to do, to be simplified and organized so that it can better focus on the Self. Spend the weekend both in studentship and as the space holder in witnessing the direct effects of these practices in the body, mind and heart.

It will deliver complex concepts in a really digestible way. All levels welcome.
