Yoga Nidra is body-centered form of meditation that can be practiced for many reasons: to deeply relax and release stress; to promote healing of the body-mind and to rediscover a greater sense of wholeness and balance that is naturally ours. This method of guided self-inquiry is usually practiced in a comfortable lying down position, in which participants are guided into the deepest levels of relaxation and meditation. The Yoga Nidra portion of this workshop will be approximately 40 minutes in duration. Before the Nidra practice we will have a simple warm up session. Yoga Nidra has helped countless people to release chronic patterns of stress, to boost immune systems and overall health, to sleep better, and to lead more content lives. This workshop would be a great addition to any yoga practice.

What is Ayueveda? What is a Dosha? How should I eat to be healthy according to my dosha? What daily routines will help to reduce stress? What should I avoid to live a healthy life?
Ayurveda originated in India more than 5,000 years ago and is the oldest continuously practiced health-care system in the world. It is from an understanding of nature’s natural rhythms and laws.
It is understood in Ayurveda that humans are governed by the same rules and laws as all other natural beings. If we choose to ignore these laws, then imbalances will begin to appear. These imbalances show up as signs and when ignored lead to disharmony and disease in the mind and body. This system of medicine understands our deepest connections with the whole universe and the influences of the energies that make up this universe.

Burning Bowl Ceremony!
What are you hanging on to in your life?
This week at our studio we are going to have a Burning Bowl Ceremony. Burning bowl ceremonies can be done at any time of the year, but what better time then in the beginning of a new year. This practice helps externalize the internal.
Our Burning bowl Ceremony will be very simple. At the beginning of each yoga class this week, the instructor will give each student two pieces of paper one white and one purple.
The White piece of paper is for writing down something or some quality that you would like to “give away”, things that you want to release, in the upcoming month/year, Write down regrets, negative thoughts, bad habits, grudges, destructive relationships – and any other anchors to the past, inhibiting ideas and practices which stifle you.
The Purple piece of paper is for writing down the new things you want to receive into your life or some quality that you want to manifest in the up coming month/year to replace the old things you are releasing.
The purple paper with the new things you desired in your life will be folded up, sealed, and put into a manila envelope. The envelope will be sealed after the week is over and reopened during the next Burning Bowl Ceremony. Each person will be handed their sealed Purple paper as a reminder of the things they wrote down.
After class is over students will light their white piece of paper from the candle and then place the burning paper into the green pot. Once the paper is in the green pot, turn way and never look back at the paper, which was definitely symbolic of letting go.
You may participate as many times as you would like this week or if you choose, not at all.
We will become aware of what we wish to “give away” and also what we want to receive in our lives. Through this practice we may realize that this life is truly filled with blessings that have been awaiting our acceptance.
