Lauren Fulbright, 500-RYT, 500 KYT, E-RYT
Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra Instructor & Life Coach
Beginners, All Levels, Ages 15 & Up
Take a break from your busy life with this grown-up version of "nap time."
Yoga Nidra, or 'Yogic Sleep," is a lying-down 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 proven to have many benefits, including:
- Helping to alleviate stress, anxiety, insomnia and depression.
- Calm the nervous system
- Boost your immune system
- Promote a positive outlook & and lift your spirits.
- By working with the subconscious mind, Yoga Nidra can also help you make real and lasting changes.
Just one hour of Yoga Nidra equals 3 to 4 hours of deep restorative sleep.
Everyone can do this practice. No yoga or meditation experience needed. All you have to do is lie down and listen to the teacher's soothing voice. Wear comfortable clothes.
This is a great way to start or enhance a meditation practice.

Sound Bath MEDITATION
by Crystal Ashram
with Robert Lee, E-RYT 500 First-Timers & All Welcome!
$25 Early Bird; $30 After
Experience the Rejuvenating Power
of Singing Bowls / 'Human Activation'
How can you be more clear and productive when you're awake, and be more restful when you sleep?
MODERN SCIENCE now agrees that deep meditation can give us all of this and then some including, reduced blood pressure, reduced anxiety, and increased overall wellness.
IN THE AMERICAN JOURNAL of Health Promotion,Tibetan Singing Bowls were used compared to silent meditation. Scientists found the singing bowls produced greater decreases in blood pressure and heart rate than simply silence alone.
HUMAN ACTIVATION has been featured in a recent Washington Post article in the Wellness section as the leaders in modern mindful meditation with their "sound bath" offerings.
Sound bath, what's that?
Human Activation sound frequency specialist, Robert Lee, will be playing several of these rare Singing Bowls, some of which are over 200 years old. A magical alchemy of 7-12 different metals rings in the past, present, and future for our relaxing enchantment.
Experience these gifts from the past in this NON-religious practice of our present.

Special this Winter
Stretch Deeply. Relax Fully & Renew with
Yin & Restorative Yoga
With Luann Fulbright, MA, I-IAYT, 500 E-RYT, KYT & IYT, YACEP All Levels
Professional-Level Yoga Teacher & Therapist $25/person Early Bird; $30
Join Dream Yoga Studio Director & Yoga Therapist Luann for a special practice people adore. This is a perfect class for the winter -- to help you slow down, let go, reflect and realize alert calmness.
With time, gravity, sitting 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’ll 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, combat fatigue & promote healing.
Gravity does a lot of the work while you are guided in breathing and relaxation techniques that quiet the mind and soothe the nervous system.
Tip: Comfort and ease in the body/mind/spirit develops best with regular practice, so registering for all of Luann's fall Yin & Restorative Yoga Practice Classes is recommended.
Your Instructor: Luann has been teaching yoga to students in group and private Yoga Therapy sessions for almost 20 years. Yoga has helped Luann overcome physical challenges and debilitating fear, which makes her passionate about introducing people to the profound effects of traditional yoga practice and Yoga Therapy.

| 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 48th “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.

Learn & Practice THE FIVE TIBETANS
With Luann Fulbright, 500-KYT, IYT & E-RYT All Levels
$108 / 3 classes; $41 Drop In
It takes 21 days to create a new habit! This Mini-Course will get you into the habit of practicing the life-enhancing Tibetans (aka, ancient "Rites of Rejuvenation").
The "5 Tibetans" is a basic—yet often little-known—yoga practice. This powerful ancient yoga rite gives you a quick physical workout, leading to physical, emotional, mental and spiritual transformation. The Tibetans can be practiced in small spaces with little time. All you need is a few minutes, and enough space to swing your arms around or to do a push up. The 5 Tibetans can also be used as a warm-up for other exercises.
In less than 20 minutes a day, the Tibetans strengthen your muscular, glandular and nervous systems, energize & balance you. They aim to normalize the speed of our chakras—the spinning energy centers along our spine—that affect every aspect of who we are and how we experience life. They balance our endocrine—the system that produces the harmones which regulate our organs and affect tissues within the body as well as the aging process. They can enhance bone mass, eliminate double chins, boost memory & immunity, improve eyesight, posture/spinal health, more. Done in the morning before breakfast, the practice can "energize you like a double expresso without any of the negative side effects." You'll feel healthier, more alive!
The Tibetans can be strenuous, but modifications are shown & practiced in this intro class open to students brand-new to yoga, to the Tibetans & to those wanting a refresher course.. Detailed HANDOUTS for home practice included.
Sign up for this series to:
- Learn how to perform each Tibetan with proper alignment and breathing in order to reap the most benefits from the practice and avoid injury/ramifications.
- Learn and practice appropriate warm-ups to prepare the body for the Tibetans.
- Practice Alternative Poses for each Tibetan, to use when one or more of the Tibetans is too challenging for you.
- Focus on the impact the Tibetans have on the Chakra energy centers, glands and organs.
- Receive important tips and cautions on how and when to practice these powerful Rites.
- Get your questions answered about your practice, if you already practice these Rites.
