Yoga Nidra with Deb

Date: Fri 8/3/2018
From: 6:30 PM - 7:45 PM

Yoga Nidra Workshop
Recharge, Renew, Revitalize
Yoga Nidra is a state of conscious deep sleep. It is a wakeful state of deep introversion and a powerful relaxation technique. One hour of effective yoga nidra is said to be equivalent to 3-4 hours of sleep. It can go deep into the subconscious and “undo” old patterns and habits. Body, mind and spirit benefit from this practice. Body and breath awareness are fostered through guided instructions while lying on your back or side. A small pillow and blanket are suggested.
The Benefits of this practice include:
Relaxation of the mind
Clearing the unconscious
Awakening creativity
Enhancing memory and learning capacity
Counteracting stress
Managing psychological disorders
Managing psychosomatic diseases
Promoting willpower
Deb (Newman) McGonnell RYT-500
Deb has been teaching yoga for over 10 years and practicing for almost 20. She has taught many workshops on Yoga Nidra and experiences many of the benefits herself. In this workshop, we will warm up and gently stretch the body in preparation for the guided Yoga Nidra practice.
Earlybird Special $25 - $30 on the day of workshop

Release, Restore, Reconnect: Restorative Yoga & Reiki with Anna

Date: Sun 8/5/2018
From: 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Come join us for an afternoon of relaxation as we combine the healing powers of reiki with restorative yoga by candlelight. Reiki is a subtle hands-on healing technique that moves energy in the body to places where it is needed the most. While restorative yoga helps ease the mind as we practice “being” in poses for longer. Anna, both a certified yoga instructor and reiki master, will guide you through a releasing restorative practice supported by bolsters and blocks so that you can find complete surrender. While you are resting in the postures, she will use reiki energy to remove blockages in the body and open up the energetic channels. This combination will allow for total relaxation and you will leave feeling reconnected and refreshed!
This workshop is limited to 9 spaces. Reserve now!

Part I: Root To Rise Into Your Power with Deb

Wake Up To Life: Exploring the Chakras
In these two workshops, we explore the energy centers of the body, the seven chakras, in a full sensory experience. There will be movement through yoga postures, color, sound vibration and mantra. We will be using essential oils specifically selected to ground and awaken, to bring increased awareness to the chakras in order to heal and balance the heart, mind and body. With these practices, we gain improved awareness of what we need for optimum health and vitality resulting in a greater connection to our power and joy.
