Yoga Teaching Schedule in Chicago

I have a pending job offer to teach yoga and taichi full time at the VA, so I’m currently not teaching weekly drop-in classes. 

Please see my workshop teaching schedule below.

I continue to sub classes at East Bank Club, First Ascent Rock Climbing Gyms, and Nature Yoga. I also teach private clients. I hope to practice with you, soon!

Restorative Yoga Nidra Workshops
Restore your vitality, refine your will power, and rest into You by practicing restorative yoga and yoga nidra in this hour long class. Yoga nidra, or yoga sleep, is intended to bring the mind into deeper states of Being, with relaxation and healing as added benefits. Combining both practices is deeply relaxing and transformative. Expect to lay on the floor in different postures supported by yoga props during the restorative practice, and to lay on your back for the nidra practice. No experience necessary.

Learn to safely and confidently teach guided relaxation, yoga nidra. Yoga nidra is Sanskrit for “yogic sleep”, a powerfully healing and transformational technique from the Tantra Yoga tradition usually practiced laying on the back. The practitioner is lead, or leads themself, into deeper states of relaxation by quieting the nervous system, systematically. Yoga nidra is safe for all practitioners, is a tool for deeper self-awareness, and is used to relieve symptoms of PTSD in clinical studies.

Yoga nidra can be taught as a stand alone practice or as part of a complete practice. Bring this powerful technique of deep relaxation to your clients and yoga students for an enriching experience. Teaching, counseling, healing, or working therapeutically with clients is strongly suggested to take this workshop. 

Expect to practice at least four different systems of yoga nidra that include iRest, the Himalayan system, and Bihar School nidra from Swami Satyananda Saraswati. There is a slideshow lecture explaining the history of yoga nidra, its intention, an explanation of how it works, its physical and subtle body effects, and the different components of a yoga nidra practice, including sankalpa. You will receive scripts and practice teaching in this nurturing, safe environment. Deep dive into yoga nidra through the refinement of teaching techniques and methodology.
