Yoga PhilosophyGreat for newbies!

How can we take our yoga practice off of our mat and into our world? Join Ian and Andrea for tea and discussion (and often homemade cookies!) to learn more about the rich history and underlying teachings of yoga. Ian and Emily teach philosophy in a way that is accessible to everyone, using simple language and modern analogies.

This is a casual environment for open discussion, questions, and discovery. All are welcome. No experience required.

Yoga Nidra 15 Hour Teacher Training

Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation that helps us to release tension on physical, mental and emotional levels. In this healing practice of “yogic sleep” we have the ability to reduce pain, replace sleep (it is said to that 20 minutes of practice equals 4-5 hrs of sleep), move into an expanded state of consciousness, release old habits and beliefs, create new neural connections, and find more balance in our lives.

This 15 hour course is open to teachers and committed students who want to understand the process of yoga nidra and learn how to create practices for themselves or to share with patients, students, clients, and family.

What you will learn:
*How to prepare the body and mind for practice
*Benefits of nidra
*How nidra moves us through the koshas (energetic sheaths) and the different levels of consciousness to release, balance, and connect to a higher consciousness
*How to create nidra for group classes/privates
*Understanding the 9 steps as created by Yogiraj Mona Anand and ISHTA founder, Yogiraj Alan Finger, so you can adjust the practice to suit what you are teaching
*We will look at the practice of yoga nidra, what the purpose is, and how we can use different tools to bring balance into our lives
*There will be time for creating practices, practice teaching, and feedback
