Yoga Nidra with Gina Matteucci

Yoga Nidra, also known as yogic sleep, is an ancient meditation practice which allows participants to enjoy complete physical, mental, and emotional relaxation while exploring the deeper layers of the subconscious and unconscious mind bringing an incredible calmness, quietness and clarity to the practitioner. In this deep sleep meditation your conscious mind will gently guide you through thought patterns, emotions, images, and sensations 
The practice of Yoga Nidra reveals our innate intelligence and inherent wisdom which burns away negative patterns of conditioning, thus creating the space for the spontaneous physical, psychological and interpersonal transformations that can occur as a result of this practice. 

Yoga Nidra is one of the deepest of all meditations and is beneficial for people suffering from diseases such as hypertension, stress, diabetes, migraines, asthma, and digestive disorders. It has helped countless people release patterns of stress to help boost overall health, to sleep better and to lead more contended lives.
This 2 hour workshop will consist of discussion and a light gentle yoga practice to open and prepare the body for a 45 min meditation. Please wear comfortable clothes. A blanket will be provided, however it is recommended that you bring an extra pillow or cushion for extra comfort. Please bring an eye pillow or a washcloth/small towel to cover your eyes.

“We use Yoga Nidra to investigate and go beyond our limiting beliefs and conditioning, so that we may live a contented life, free of conflict, anxiety, fear, dissatisfaction, and suffering. And in its ultimate form, we use Yoga Nidra to unravel the sacred mystery of life and reveal the secret of enlightenment.” — Richard Miller, Ph.D.

Yoga Adjustment Workshop. An Energy Exchange

Learn the principles of giving powerful, safe, and transformational yoga asana adjustments. Developing sensitivity to directing prana (life force energy) in asana can transform your practice as a teacher and student. Instead of focusing on learning the so-called “correct adjustment" for each pose, learn the principles that will empower you to create, improvise, and customize adjustments safely and effectively. Yoga teachers and longtime students will benefit from this workshop. “If we experience asana as an unfolding continuum of interconnection, the assist will lead us seamlessly into and out of each asana.

In yoga, there are actually two beings interacting together on various levels of consciousness to foster a decrease in avidya, “mis-knowing,” and an increase in vidya, or the “knowing” principle.

-learn to see the adjustment first, where do they need length or space in their body or breath
-learn to use the variety of tools (body parts) that you have available
-use your own weight, good body mechanics to both feel and keep you safe
-build confidence through different exercises and practice -play with the balance between the student working and you working
-and much much more…

From: 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

This workshop invites you to participate with an open mind and heart to explore, learn and practice safe meditations that strengthen and balance you. The practices were chosen for their simplicity and the relative ease which they can be learned and applied. They can be incorporated into your daily routine as a component of a health maintenance routine or used whenever a stressful situation arises. These proven practices originate from multiple healing modalities, including pranayama (breath work), mantra yoga and Reiki. Some have been around for thousands of years. They also compliment traditional medical therapies. Investment: $15.00
