Introduction to Mindfulness

MEDITATION

& Stress Reduction

 



 

Beginners

& Continuing


Next 8-Week
Mini-Course
Starts Oct 30


 

 

 

 

 

This short course will introduce useful tools for identifying and managing stress, and developing mental focus, in skillful and gentle ways.

 

It's a special opportunity to become familiar with the time-tested, relaxing and restorative qualities of Mindfulness Meditation. We'll explore how meditation helps lower stress levels, focus the mind, and be more balanced and healthy. Meditation also helps you focus, so you can realize your "best Self."We know that many folks are often intimidated by the thought of sitting still for long periods of time. So we’ll first explore gentle flowing movements that release tension and stress, to prepare for meditation.

 

As weeks progress, instructions will cover meditation while sitting, kneeling, standing and walking. Each class includes deep relaxation in the reclining posture. Jon will also offer short talks which include a relaxed blend of Applied Mindfulness—a secular approach to teaching meditation similar to Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), and some traditional teachings from the path to enlightenment.

 

This series is primarily for those new to meditation and/or want to reduce stress. Props such as chairs, sitting cushions, blankets and eye masks will be provided.

   

Stress Reduction thru Meditative Mindful Movement & Deep Relaxation

Beginners, All

4-Week Session
Starts Sept 11
Register
Learn how to transition from the stress of your day into what many people recognize as those “magical” moments similar to being in the Zone or Flow state!

In this special Short Course, you will first clear your mind with a blend of gentle, slow flowing postures combining Qi Gong & Tai Chi principals time-proven to connect the mind & body more efficiently. This energetic “clearing” will be followed by a reclining, deep relaxation meditation which gives the body a chance to intuitively restore itself to a more balanced state.

Realigning the body’s energies with gentle mindful movement followed by guided relaxation is a time-tested way of restoring balance, energy, mental clarity and our sense of humor. You’ll learn mindful movements you can do for a lifetime; and Jon, one of the area’s leading meditation instructors who is also studied in the martial arts, will help keep you motivated by sharing the latest research by neuroscientists related to the mindful movement and meditation.

Private Yoga Session

to learn The Five Tibetans.

 

All Levels

 


A Great Practice for students NEW to Yoga... Gives you a first Home Practice.


Experienced students get a new practice to add to their "Yoga Toolbox."

The Five Tibetans are known as the ancient "Rites of Rejuvenation" or the "Fountain of Youth." In less than 20 minutes a day, the Tibetans will strengthen, energize and balance you. You’ll feel healthier, more alive! The Tibetans are known to enhance bone mass, eliminate double chins, boost memory and immunity, improve eyesight, posture/spinal health, and more.

 

The Tibetans can be strenuous, but modifications are shown and practiced in this introductory class open to students brand-new to the Tibetans and to those who want a refresher course. You’ll learn relevant warm-ups, how to perform each Tibetan with proper alignment and breathing, and how to avoid injury/ramifications of this powerful practice.

 

We’ll discuss the impact the Tibetans have on the Chakra energy centers, glands and organs, and you’ll get your questions answered about your practice. You’ll also receive lots of handouts and teacher support to aid your home practice of the Tibetans.


Luann has taught students The Five Tibetans since 2003. For information on learning the Tibetans in a private yoga session with Luann, go here.

   

 

Intermediate Yoga

 

Level 2

 

Take your yoga to the next level in this Hatha Yoga class that blends the alignment principals of Iyengar Yoga with the mindfulness & energy work of Kripalu.

 

You’ll learn and refine yoga postures that build strength, flexibility & balance; and engage in more advanced pranayama (breathing practices) that calm/focus your mind & infuse your body with lifeforce (prana). Warm up  and stretch away tension. Move through Sun Salutations/ other posture flows to boost stamina and immunity. Hold poses to generate heat, tone and detoxify.

 

You'll be encouraged to challenge yourself and also honor your body's limitations, modifying poses as needed to gain the greatest benefit from your practice. You’ll be invited to breathe, relax, go inside & feel, explore, watch, allow…and open to new possibilities for health, wholeness, personal discovery, inspiration & transformation. Each class ends with a brief relaxation/meditation for integrating body, mind & spirit.

Contrary to what some believe, EVERY BODY can do yoga!  If you think you're "not flexible enough," "not strong enough," "not fit enough" or "have physcial limitations" that would keep you from doing yoga.... Come find out how you can do yoga...no matter what your limitations.

 

You can benefit from a Private Session if you're new to yoga or want to learn ways to adapt your practice at home or in Yoga Class to meet your current goals or challenges. New students can learn what yoga is, how you can benefit from doing yoga, and how you can begin a yoga practice. You can come to get "assessed" and see what classes at Dream Yoga Studio might be best for you.

 

In a Private Yoga session, your instructor will take a gentle approach to help you learn & move deeper into yoga postures, even if you have minimal flexibility. You’ll find that a transformative yoga practice doesn’t have to be intimidating or painful.

 

Your instructor will break postures into increments and show you how to use props to make yoga accessible. You’ll learn to breathe more deeply, strengthen concentration/focus, and discover new strength & increased flexibility while honoring your limits. Your instructor will  offer practical suggestions from working with his/her own and their students’ experiences of specific conditions, including back problems, arthritis, pregnancy, organ prolapse, panic disorder, breathing problems, and recovery from injury. You'll find greater balance and a sense of well-being as you learn how to practice with both effort and ease.

Join Dream Yoga Studio Director & Yoga Therapist Luann Fulbright for a practice people adore – a perfect class free your body, mind and spirit!!

With time, gravity and our various activities, our joints become compressed and the connective tissue that surrounds the joints can become hard and immobile. YIN YOGA comes to the rescue, using gentle pressure and longer holds of postures to safely stimulate the joints and ligaments in our bodies to improve strength, mobility and hydration to the joints. It’s an excellent practice to counter the effects of arthritis, and develop the “Witness Mind” (the mind that’s able to be present with “what is” without wanting to change it to be happy).

In RESTORATIVE YOGA, we use blankets and other supportive props to get into nurturing and deeply restful postures that help:
  • Release chronically-held musculature tension.
  • Turn off the fight-or-flight response, and
  • Turn on the relaxation response to lower blood pressure, calm heated emotions, combat fatigue & promote healing.

Gravity does a lot of the work while you're guided in breathing and relaxation techniques that quiet the mind and soothe the nervous system.

Come, take a break from the busy-ness of life, and TREAT YOURSELF to this beautiful experience! You’ll leave feeling noticeably looser physically, mentally "chilled" … and a little more enLightened too!

The presentation of the "Internal Forms" (Nei Chi Chuan) in this class is welcoming to both the beginner and advanced practitioner. Warm-ups and modifications to movements are offered.

Advanced
Beginners Plus

Level 1-2



For students
 free from
 limiting injuries.


This class is for students new to Vinyasa, or for those wanting to start anew and learn how to flow more safely in postures with good alignment.

Vinyasa is a continuous flow of postures connected by the breath. It's a great practice for students wanting more of a workout from their yoga class.

In this class, we’ll move a little slower and more mindfully than in typical Vinyasa classes, starting with warm-up flows and posture review as needed to prepare you for more challenging posture flows. We’ll progress from basic to more detailed Sun Salutations (the most basic Vinyasa), with more challenging postures & pranayamas (breathing practices).

New postures will be introduced each week, so you can progress in your practice.

 While physically demanding, this class encourages moment-to-moment awareness and honoring your body as you increase strength, endurance, balance and flexibility. Enjoy a safe and nurturing practice while you shed stress and energize!

For students
 free from

Come to this class to free your energy, strengthen and stretch muscles in the body, and unwind your busy mind.

Your teacher will help you build the foundation for a healthy, life-long Vinyasa Yoga Flow practice—a more athletic workout in which you flow from one pose to another with your breath.

 You will learn and hone your knowledge of classic Vinyasa postures, including safe alignment in these postures, plus supportive breathing practices. We’ll build heat with sun salutations and standing poses; and take time to settle into poses a little longer, and perhaps deeper, to increase flexibility, stamina, vitality, balance and keen self-awareness.

Variations of the postures will be explored, so you can keep taking your practice to the next level.
    
 Vinyasa Yoga Flow
Intermediate
Level 2


 For students who have a firm foundation of basic yoga postures & want a more active practice
This class will take your Vinyasa practice to a new level of challenge.

We'll explore mindful and creative flows, introducing and reviewing details of new postures, as needed, before adding them to a flow. You will be given ground-up cues for alignment and modifications for postures to enhance confidence and safely; and have the opportunity to build endurance, focus, flexibility and balance through longer holdings of postures.

We will strengthen and tone each major part of the body, and boost your heart rate in an invigorating physical practice, before cooling down with adequate stretching and relaxation techniques, enriching both your physical and mental experience.

Intermediate breathing techniques will be explored to deepen your experience, allowing you to connect with your body and flow with your breath.

Yoga Nidra is being

used to help veterans and others manage PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.)


As the pace of modern life increase exponentially, the timeless practice of Yoga Nidra has come to the foreground as an effective tool for living with greater health and ease in the modern age.


Yoga Nidra – which literally means "yogic sleep" – is a guided meditation scientifically proven to induce a profound level of relaxation which leads to improved health and transformation on the physical, energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. 


A regular Yoga Nidra practice has been shown to be very effective in alleviating stress, anxiety, insomnia and depression. It calms the nervous system and has the power to transform negative core beliefs into a more positive outlook. The visualization and sensory awareness used during Yoga Nidra directly communicate with your subconscious mind - where real and lasting changes begin!


Each Sunday class begins with gentle stretches to loosen your joints, free-up energy, and prepare you for Yoga Nidra. (You do not have to stretch if you don't want to.)


We then move to a comfortable lying down or seated position. The instructor guides you through a series of simple meditations where you bring your awareness to physical sensations, the breath and mental images. The tools/techniques learned can also be used at home for stress reduction and as a prelude to better sleep.

New Class
It's expected that by 2020, half of all American men and women over age 50 will have, or will be at risk of developing, osteoporosis of the hip. Even more will be at risk of developing it the spine and elsewhere.

This class is for anyone who is interested in warding off bone loss, and for those who have been formally diagnosed with osteopenia or osteoporosis who want to increase bone density. Variations are given for poses, based on students’ needs and abilities.

Classes start with safe and appropriate warm-up exercises/stretches, followed by poses that safely strengthen bones without injuring joints. And since the greatest risk to those with brittle bones is fracture from falls, we will incorporate poses and techniques that improve balance, minimize falls and reduce the impact of falls when they happen.

Classes include breathing practices and end with a simple guided relaxation. All Levels of students are welcome, including those with no yoga experience.
    
 

Yoga Stretch

& Strengthen

 

 

Level 1-2


One of Dream's

most long-standing

& popular classes




This popular class is perfect for a beginner—or the experienced yoga practitioner—who wants a less vigorous class to increase flexibility, strength, energy, balance, good posture, and greater ease in the body/mind.

A slower class pace helps you:

  • Learn basic yoga postures and breathing exercises.
  • Increase body awareness to avoid or recover more quickly from illness or injury; and
  • Balance a life of more active yoga practice or physical exercise with more focused breathing and stretching.

 

Classes include total body stretching with a special emphasis on tension-prone areas—neck, shoulders, lower back, hips and hamstrings/legs. We’ll do joint-freeing movements, detoxing twists, and passive holding of poses—surrendering to gravity—to release deeply held tightness. Restorative Poses using blankets and other props to support the body might be used to help you experience deeper opening, relaxation and healing.

 

To strengthen, we’ll use holding of poses, repetition, props and lifting up and out of gravity. Focus on breathing and relaxation techniques will balance the nervous and endocrine systems. Each class ends with guided relaxation.

 Yoga Stretch & Tone with (Optional) WEIGHTS Level 1-2

This new class takes Dream’s popular Yoga Stretch & Strengthen class & adds weights. You’ll learn how yoga and strength training go hand-in-hand to help you realize all the physical benefits of yoga…including improving muscle tone, flexibility, posture & balance…faster. Combining free weights with yoga is an efficient way to address modern-day physical challenges brought on by sitting too long at the computer and living longer. It helps boost metabolism, calorie burning, endurance, focus, bone density & fights the effects of the aging process. Weights help stabilize your body (strengthening deep core muscles) and engage you more deeply into the yoga postures.


The principals of yoga–safe alignment, pose options, movement with breath & mindfulness—add a much-needed dimension to the typical physical workout, helping you avoid injury and burn out. Each class includes pranayama (breathing practices) and some yoga philosophy, and ends with guided relaxation/meditation.


Weights provided. Some yoga experience recommended.
