Yoga Nidra for Deep Relaxation

Treat yourself to an evening of deep peace and relaxation. Yoga Nidra retrains your nervous system to truly and completely relax, which enables deep healing and rejuvenation to occur in your body, heart, and mind. It can help to ease anxiety, insomnia, and depression and is the perfect antidote to an active, busy, stressful life. In this two-hour workshop we will explore the many benefits of Yoga Nidra, including why and how it works, unwind the body with some gentle stretching, and then lie down for an hour-long guided relaxation. Bring your body and mind into equilibrium and walk away feeling warm, peaceful, and relaxed. No yoga or meditation experience is needed. This workshop is appropriate for adults and teens, ages 16 and up.

Yoga On the Go

Sometimes when you need yoga the most, there's no class to be found. Or space, or props, or time... But that doesn't mean you can't practice! In this workshop, we'll talk about how to keep yourself aligned while you're on the move (for instance, Is your car seat adjusted correctly?), and we'll explore sequences for: 1) Yoga in a limited space (e.g. plane seat), 2) Yoga without props (e.g. hotel room, airport, back of the airplane), and 3) Yoga to recover from travel. Students will receive handouts (paper and online), so you can remember the sequences and practice yoga on the go! All levels welcome.

Brain Memory, Body Memory & Breath

As we age we experience changes in our mental capacities, particularly in our short-term memories. Genetics certainly play an important role in those changes. However, scientists have documented that our brain is fundamentally "plastic." That is, it reconfigures itself in response to our behavior and habits. And if we make a point of nourishing our mental, physical, and spiritual selves, we can make real strides in protecting the mind as we grow older. Through a series of gentle asanas, breath training, and guided imagery, we'll explore the theory and practice of particular yogic techniques geared to unwrap the full potential of the mind. All levels welcome.

Budding Yogis Teaching Yoga to Kids Certification

Do you think you might enjoy teaching yoga to children? Or do you think your child might benefit from learning to relax through the non-competitive practice of yoga? This 20-hour workshop is intended for school teachers, parents, yoga teachers, therapists, or anyone interested in learning how to enrich children's lives with yoga practice. Participants will learn how to teach kids yoga classes, how to create theme-based yoga classes, and how to teach self-calming and meditation techniques. In addition to learning how to teach kids yoga poses and yoga games, participants will gain a clear understanding of the age-breakouts for classes and learn techniques for dealing with various behaviors, including special needs. We will learn through doing, by experiencing kids yoga classes and discussing what works well with kids. Each student will have an opportunity to plan, observe, and teach a free kids yoga class on the last day of the workshop. We'll also discuss what it takes to get started teaching and/or start-up a kids yoga business. A Budding Yogis Certificate will be given to each participant if all sessions and the practice teaching session are successfully attended. Some yoga experience required. More about the training.

Payment may be made in two installments, due on 5/1/15 and 6/1/15. If you need to cancel your registration, please do so at least one week before the workshop, and your fee will be refunded minus a 20% administrative fee. Sorry, no refunds will be given for cancellations made within less than one week of the workshop.
