Divine Sleep YOGA NIDRA: Profound Relaxation (Guided Meditation)
Gentle Stretch & Restore!
Lauren Fulbright, 500-RYT, 500 KYT, E-RYT
Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra Instructor & Life Coach
Beginners, All Levels, Ages 15 & Up
$18 Registered Students; $22 Drop In
As the pace of modern life increases 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.
Just one hour of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to three hours of regular sleep.
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!
Everybody can do this practice! Each class begins with gentle stretches to loosen your joints, free-up energy, and prepare you for the Yoga Nidra. We then move to a comfortable lying down or seated position for Yoga Nidra. 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.
Absolutely NO yoga or meditation experience needed. Wear comfortable clothing.
Students who do Yoga Nidra say they LOVE the way they feel afterward—noticeably
looser, freer…and a little more enlightened too!

Post-Thanksgiving Turkey Twist Away (Practice Class for Advanced Beginners & Beyond) with Luann
TWIST Away Tension, Tightness & Toxins
Begin your holiday season with a lighter body, heart and mind!
With Luann Fulbright, MA, C-IAYT, 500 E-RYT, KYT & IYT, YACEP All Levels
Professional-Level Yoga Teacher & Therapist
& Director of Dream Yoga Studio $24/person Early Bird; $28 after
After a class that focuses on twisting, students often say, “I feel so good!” “I feel lighter!” “Freer!”
This special practice class focuses on twists and techniques--creatively planned after Thanksgiving--to help you digest, detox and rinse away toxins--both tangible or intangible--in your physical, mental and emotional systems. It will give you a de-stress kick start, as you enter the holiday season.
Post-Thanksgiving is a perfect time to do yoga poses that twist and turn you. Twists not only are "good for the gut." They get to the core of your tension, helping you feel less stressed, frustrated or anxious. They reinforce healthy posture, and relieve backaches by moving the spine through its full range of motion. They help with neck and shoulder pain which often lead to headaches.
Benefits of Twisting include:
- Help maintain maintain flexibility in the intervertebral discs and ligaments
- Wring out the internal organs to cleanse and detoxify the body
- Improve digestion
- Stimulate the seven chakras/energy centers
- Stretch and strengthen the spine -- the seat of the nervous system
- Alternately stretches and compresses each side of the chest to improve breathing/respiratory function
- Helps you find emotional balance and stress relief
- Stretches neck, shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles (depending upon the specific twist)
This class will emphasize safe twisting alignment and have you twisting in new ways. We'll end class with deep relaxation to help you integrate the benefits of your practice.
Eat lightly before this class! And plan to drink plenty of water before and after to enhance the detoxification process.

Introduction to Mindfulness
Meditation & Stress Reduction
With Jon Waterman Beginners, All Levels
$20/$120=6 Classes; $160/8 Classes; $24 Drop In
Co-Sponsored with IMCW
Insight Meditation Community of Washington
This short course provides you a special opportunity to become familiar with, or continue to practice, the time-tested, focusing, relaxing and restorative qualities of Mindfulness Meditation. We'll explore how meditation helps us lower stress levels, and be more balanced and healthy. You'll learn useful tools for identifying and managing stress in skillful and gentle ways.
While these weekly classes are shorter than those in a traditional MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) course at Dream Yoga Studio, instructions will be given in all of the various meditation postures including sitting, kneeling, standing, walking and gentle flowing movements that release tension and stress to prepare for meditation.
Each class also includes a session of restorative, deep relaxation in the reclining posture. Many find this reclining practice an important pre-requisite prior to establishing and sustaining an individualized daily meditation practice.
Jon blends a secular approach to teaching meditation with traditional language from the dharma. His short talks explore how meditation not only lowers stress levels, but also restores a sense of balance in our busy lives. From the outset of the course, he invites each of us to answer the question, “Over the next eight weeks, how can we learn to genuinely enjoy a meditation practice, both on and off the cushion?”
Chairs, sitting cushions, blankets, eye masks and other necessary props will be provided. We suggest that, whenever possible, you wear or bring comfortable, loose fitting clothing.
This series is primarily for those new to meditation and/or want to reduce stress.
Your Instructor: Jon Waterman, an original member of the Board of Directors of the IMCW (Insight Meditation Community of Washington) Teacher’s Council, began practicing yoga and meditation while teaching the martial arts in the early 1970’s, with a concentration, since 1994, on Buddhist Insight Meditation. His workshops and retreats focus on strengthening continuity of present moment awareness by combining mindful movement, insight dialogue and various meditation techniques.

| Mindfulness Meditation Mini-Retreat from Stress |
With Jon Waterman All Levels
$45/person Early Bird Discount
Co-sponsored with IMCW (Insight Meditation Community of Washington)
Understanding how to cultivate and sustain appropriate attention, both on and off the meditation cushion, is essential in recognizing not only the origins of stress in our busy and demanding lives, but also skillful ways to reduce that stress. However, many of us here in the West come to the cushion with great expectations and quickly discover that we first need to remember how to relax.
Scientists have proven that meditation not only reduces stress. It also helps you in these ways:
- Strengthen the immune system.
- Reduce high blood pressure.
- Strengthen coping skills.
- Sleep better.
- Better manage pain.
- Help you create positive behavior changes.
- Achieve a greater sense of overall well-being.
This workshop is open to all—from beginners to long-time meditators—and is an opportunity for you to extend your practice over a few hours. The theme will be “Connecting the Moments.” That is, intentionally cultivating and sustaining a focused attention on sensations in the body as we mindfully transition from one posture to another; sitting/kneeling; standing; walking; reclining and gentle stretching. This four-hour workshop is crafted to be deeply relaxing, not to push our limits in one posture or another.
Please join us in this 46th “Mini-Retreat” at Dream Yoga Studio. Come to share meditation practice and get your questions answered. Explore new mindfulness techniques that will help you experience greater calm and healing.
Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing. Chairs, cushions, blankets, kneeling benches and props are available, but feel free to bring your personal sitting cushion.
Past participants are amazed at how peaceful they feel after this Retreat…and how fast the day flies.

Come sample Dream’s new class (starting 9/17) with weights. Learn how yoga & 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. Class includes pranayama (breathing practices) and some yoga philosophy, and ends with guided relaxation/meditation.
Weights provided. Some yoga experience recommended.Come, explore & practice!
Your Instructor: Nevin Turk, a 500-hour certified yoga teacher by Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, considers herself a lifelong student of yoga. Her style is a blend of classical hatha yoga, joy of movement and mindfulness.

She has been practicing and studying yoga and different styles of meditation under a rich and eclectic variety of teachers for more than 15 years.

Professional-Level Yoga Teacher & Therapist Fee: $120/6 Classes
The skill of concentration is what yoga really is,
and that’s what will change your life.
The “real yoga” is not about doing fancy poses. As outlined in the ancient yoga texts, yoga is about mastering the mind…which can awaken us to our inner, spiritual nature or our “True Self.
While meditation seeks to bring us to higher states of consciousness, its benefits to the body and mind are now well-established by medical research. These benefits include:
- Feel happier, more relaxed, and at peace with yourself.
- Improved health, mental clarity and vitality.
- Increase energy, immunity and aid healing/recovery.
- Improved self-control, which can help with weight management.
- Enhance creativity, intuition, decision making. Strengthen your connection with self/others.
IN THIS MINI-COURSE, we’ll practice various forms of meditation, including mindfulness techniques, with the aim of helping you establish or fine-tune a daily practice. We’ll address any questions and difficulties that arise from our practice and offer simple solutions to help make meditation doable.
- How to get started with meditation.
- What meditation is, according to the Yoga Sutras.
- Developing your Witness Consciousness.
- How meditation can support, or exist independently, of our yoga practice.
- Guided experiences in both sitting, lying and moving meditation.
- Breathing techniques to calm the nervous system & steady the mind.
- Simple yoga movements (that most anyone can do) to prepare for meditation.
No prior experience necessary. Fee includes handouts.

Science now reveals that the deepest benefits of yoga come from developing interoception—internal awareness. Studies show that slow, meditative yoga does something different to your nervous system: It helps build proprioception (body-in-space awareness) and interoception (mind-body relationship).
We build interoception by paying attention to momentary fluctuations in bodily sensations, purposefully, non-judgmentally…without any need to change or fix anything. This is the “secret sauce” to Dynamic Gentle Yoga! –what makes it so transformative.
Slow yoga trains the respiratory musculature, the vagus nerve, heart rate variability, interoception (which may correlate with empathy), and the relaxation response.
The “rest and digest” part of the nervous system needs to train. This kind of training or practice requires your mindful participation.
This weekend, we explore three special aspects of the practice:
- Developing interoception while engaging in an innovative strengthening sequence
- Investigating energy levels, practicing six different pranayama techniques, and
- Encountering your radiant core in a seemless Gentle Yoga Vinyasa.
- The teacher training on Sunday (for yoga teachers and students aspiring to be teachers) lays a keystone in the wall of your Dynamic Gentle Yoga Teacher tool box—developing the ability to guide smooth transitions. Interoception builds when the mind continuously attends inward. Teachers will master the techniques of guiding a practice that transcends the discursive mind.
This style is unique. Otherwise, you would already be doing this!
Come and experience for yourself a practice that empowers you (and your students, if you’re a teacher) to have a new relationship with yoga. Explore a meditative technique to generate a practice that is truly yours—unique, accessible to all, and empowering.

Jennifer is a truly knowledable and a compassionate teacher. I am definitely leaving with a greater sense of ease and relaxation. As a yoga instructor, I have the confidence and motivation now to offer this practice to my students." ~ Eric Yatar
"The best part of the Yoga Nidra Teacher Training was the integration of Yoga Nidra with the knowledge and opportunities to practice. I felt like this training was truly multi-dimensional and well integrated. The sessions to practice postures and Yoga Nidra built up knowledge from slides and manual. Then the practice time to create and deliver Yoga Nidra scripts was developed incrementally and reinforced through all the above that it really came together for me. I leave with a fuller appreciation of myself as a whole being." ~ Lisa Bell

There is nothing required of you but to lie down and listen, giving yourself permission to rest, balance and restore.
