Beginners

Level 1

These mini-courses, workshops and private sessions will provide you with a foundation for starting your yoga practice…or starting anew to refresh your knowledge of important hatha yoga basics and, if you want, prepare you for entering regular classes at Dream Yoga.

 

Based on your goals and needs, we'll explore major categories of yoga postures—standing & balancing postures, seated & reclining postures, cleansing twists, beginning backbends & basic inversions. You’ll learn proper alignment of poses, and breathing & relaxation techniques that calm and energize you. We’ll engage in yoga stretches and “warm-ups” that increase range of motion & prepare the body for the deeper postures. You’ll experience greater flexibility and strength, stress relief, improved posture, and mind-body-spirit harmony and possible pain reduction. As in all Dream Yoga classes, you’ll be encouraged to practice mindfulness, challenge yourself appropriately, and honor your body's individual needs.

Beginners

& Continuing

 

 

 

 

 

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.

LAUGHTER YOGA –

 

 

Available for

Private Family

& Group Sessions

@ Dream Yoga Studio

or Your Location   

 

Laughter Yoga provides an excellent aerobic workout. Just one minute of hearty laughter equals 10 minutes of rowing or jogging.

 

All Levels

 

Laughter Yoga is a new yoga technique—developed by a family physician from India—now spreading across the United States and the world. It’s based on a simple truth that children know inherently—that laughter makes you feel better. (Children laugh about 400 times a day; adults 15 times.)

 

People do Laughter Yoga because it feels so good: You can feel a difference after your first Laughter Yoga class.   It reduces physical, mental and emotional stress simultaneously. Boosts your immune system and your mood. Tones tummy muscles, aids digestion, and helps you lose weight. One class burns about 200 calories!

 

This class combines simple, easy-to-do laughter exercises (spontaneous, self-directed laughter) and yoga breathing to enhance health and happiness. Included will be short talks sharing wisdom and research on ways to increase happiness. Class ends with a brief yogic relaxation.

 

 

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.

Studies have shown: Two things that help you live a longer, healthier and happier life are--connecting with others and having fun.  Partner Yoga helps you do both!   Bring a “significant other”—a partner, spouse, friend or child age 16 or older—to share a playful evening learning partner-assisted yoga poses you can do at home.

 

The poses will stretch you and help you become more flexible and strong.  We’ll share a little Thai Yoga massage to relieve stress. We’ll end with deep relaxation.

 

Partner Yoga is a great way to introduce someone to yoga.  No yoga experience required.  Working with a partner also helps the experienced yogi stretch more deeply.

Rise & Shine SLOW FLOW YOGA
Level 1-2
Monday mornings can be tough as we transition from our weekend to the work and school week. This class is designed to ease that transition, so that you can start your week with energy, focus & purpose!

We begin with slow supine stretches, followed by warm-ups that target areas that tend to take a beating over the weekend (and in life)–your back, shoulders, hip flexors, hamstrings, quads. As we build energy, we'll mindfully flow from one pose to the other.

You’ll learn/master slow flowing sequences of poses; plus the slower pace will help ensure you practice Vinyasa safely. As you cool down, we’ll share a centering breath practice/meditation, with an invitation for students to set their intentions for the week.

The class ends with a brief relaxation pose–an opportunity to assimilate the practice. You'll gain strength, endurance, balance, flexibility & a heightened self-awareness; and leave class centered and ready for the week ahead.

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!

About the Instructor:  Kelly Monahan (RYT-C 200) has been teaching yoga to children for years.  As a lacrosse coach, she implemented yoga principles for the team to become calmer & more focused under pressure as well as more unified.  She knows that yoga is a seriously beneficial practice. But her sense of humor helps communicate yoga to teens in a way that makes them feel safe and free to be themselves.

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. 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.


No yoga or meditation experience needed. All props provided.

Yoga Basics for Stress Relief


Private Sessions

Email Luann


Beginners
All
Stress is the key cause of dis-ease and disease. A recent study showed that 'Stress Relief" was the second top reason people do yoga...and there's a reason for this!  Even one yoga class can reduce your levels of stress and stress hormones.

This special class taught by Dream Yoga Studio Director & Yoga Therapist Luann Fulbright will introduce students to the basics of using specific yoga postures, breathing, relaxation/meditation, and other yoga techniques to reduce tension and stress to create greater ease, focus and sense of well-being.

    
 Yoga for Bellies, Backs & Balance
All Levels

This hour-long class focuses on three important areas of physical health and fitness: Core, back and balance.  Starting with safe and appropriate warm-up exercises, we’ll include yoga poses and breathing practices that simultaneously build core and back strength and flexibility, and improve balance.  We’ll end the practice with a 5 minute guided relaxation.

 

This class is geared towards those free of limiting injury, who wish to maintain and/or improve their level of fitness-and have fun while doing it! Perfect for a lunch-time break in your day, and for those who have a little less time for your yoga practice.

Yoga Stretch

& Strengthen

 

 

Levels 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 & Strengthen with (Optional) WEIGHTS  

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
