Sankalpa: New Year Resolutions the Yogic Way
Create a lasting resolve for the new year. Expect to practice postures, breath work, meditation, journaling, and yoga nidra (deep relaxation). A typical New Year Resolution involves wanting to become someone you think is better than who you currently are. According to the tantra yoga tradition, you are already everything you need to be. A sankalpa practice cultivates the focus and will power required to uncover what you truly need and who you really are. This workshop includes a lecture and is appropriate for all levels of yoga practitioners. Beginners are welcome.

Learn to Teach Guided Relaxation: The Art of Yoga Nidra
March 22-24, 2019
2211 N. Elston Ave.
Learn to safely and confidently teach guided relaxation, yoga nidra. Yoga nidra is Sanskrit for “yogic sleep”, a powerful healing and transformational technique from the Tantra Yoga tradition. Yoga nidra is both the name of a state of mind and the name of a deeply restful practice. It is safe for all practitioners 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 yoga practice. Bring this powerful technique to your students to offer a deeper yoga experience. Teaching, counseling, healing, or working therapeutically with clients is strongly suggested to take this workshop. Expect to practice different styles of yoga nidra from the Himalayan tradition as well as the style popularized by 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. Delve deeply into yoga nidra through the refinement of teaching techniques and methodology.
