Yoga Nidra Teacher Training with Swan Michelle

with Michelle Baker at URU Yoga
Saturday, June 15 12:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Yoga Nidra Teacher Training
With Swan Michelle
June 15th

9 hours

12-9pm

Learn the deep effects that Yoga Nidra has on healing the body and freeing the subtle body of any blocked, con-caved life force, often where held trauma is still dormant within us, so that anything ready to release can come back into a Awareness that always is. This Awareness is something that we all share. It is energizing, yet calm, lucid and clear.

Yoga Nidra has been practiced for thousands of years and was originally brought to the west as a form of psychotherapy and self hypnosis. Often Yoga Nidra is encouraged to do as a stage before seated Meditation by first actually getting into the body through somatic scanning and wakefulness.

Yoga Nidra is a self empowering form of self healing. This can be something you take home with you or provide for other loved ones. Due to the sensitive nature of Yoga Nidra, if leading it publicly , is important to understand the dynamics that can arise, attune to the Classical ethics of Yoga Nidra as an timeless form of medicine, and learn that truly there is so much we can all do for ourselves, which is important for us to know and actually embody in our personal evolutions.

In this training you will spend 1/2 of the time actually doing Yoga Nidra in 3 different types of sessions.
We will also discuss:

The Background of Yoga Nidra
The Mythology of Yoga Nidra
The brain wave and responses
The neurotransmitter responses

In our practicum we will discuss:

A safe atmosphere
Ethical approach and constructive language
Eagle eyeing trauma response
The measurable physiology and chemistry changes
What Yoga Nidra is not
How To present it to others
Proper Sleeping patterns
Pathologies such as anxiety, depression and sleeplessness
How to Script 3 sessions

You will receive:

Personal healing from 3 sessions
A scripted session to take home and practice
A Yoga Nidra CD recording by Swan Michelle
A Certificate of Completion in offering Yoga Nidra to others
Tips on the description and offering it publicly

Investment: $210

Tantra, Mantra, & the Energy of Sound

with Igor Iwanek at URU Yoga
Saturday, June 22 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Tantra, Mantra and the Energy of Your Sound
Have you ever tried Tantra? Most likely the answer is ‘YES’!! However you probably were unaware of it 🙂 The name Tantra comes from two Sanskrit words: ‘Tanoti’ - to expand, to stretch and ‘Trayati ‘- to free, to liberate. A mother of Yoga, Tantra is a practice of expanding one’s perception. It aims to transform every action in life into a ritual so that we alter our level of awareness and incorporate daily life into our practice.
Come, celebrate the phenomenal healing power of your own voice, actively engaging in Mantra (incantation), Mudra (gesture), rhythmical Dharana (concentration) practices. While you create a new level of harmony within yourself, your mind becomes calm, receptive and one-pointed. This is extremely conducive to the practice of meditation.

Bring water. Bring an open heart. Bring an open mind. Please wear comfortable clothes and be prepared for some gentle movement. The workshop is accessible to beginners, yet challenging for advanced yogis.

My bio

Kriya Yoga Journey: Awakening the Sacred Serpent

with Amaya James at URU Yoga
Saturday, June 29 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

want to invite you into an incredible journey of healing and empowerment, one that can help us unlock any old patterns of undeserving limitations, and liberate our essential and beautiful essence. This essence, I believe, resides in all of us and is available to us in limitless abundance. I believe it gives birth to all life around us, and that we can engage in practices that allow us to feel this essence flow through our bodies, like light through a prism, revealing your full and glorious inner beauty. To live from this place is to say “Yes” to life. Your life, our life, all Life!

Kriyas (Sanskrit क्रय) are in their essence a sacred dance of breath, movement and meditation that work to active kundalini energy, which is described as a reservoir of infinite creative energy that is coiled, like a serpent, at the base of the spine. More ancient than yoga asana (postures), kriyas can have a powerful impact on the mind, body, and spirit, one that can go very deep and can also happen very fast. These kriyas come from a place of deep meditation, where our normal sense of space and time touches on the infinite. This tradition comes from a long lineage of teachers who have passed down to us their wisdom from a lineage of Rishikesh, India, a sacred place on the banks of the Ganges at the base of the Himalayas.

If you feel called to tap into this reservoir of energy with an experienced teacher of this practice, please come and dive deep into the kriya yoga practice. Experience the profound shifts in consciousness that these movements invoke. This practice is open to all levels, all students, and yoga teachers. Qualifies as 2 CEC contact hours for Yoga Alliance certified yoga teachers.

Ecstatic Dance

with Amaya James at URU Yoga
Saturday, June 29 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Ecstatic Dance is a form of conscious dance practice that allows us to be centered in our bodies through an exploration of movement and play. It is a safe environment for you to express yourself freely and unbound, while realizing that our bodies have an innate desire to move. Here we face our fears that hold us back from feeling free, while also relearning to see ourselves in the light of caring reflection and of course the sheer joy of a pure form of play. Through free form dance we can truly transform our limited sense of self and discover our lives in the context of infinite possibilities and endless play.

Come dance with us and witness the dissolution of our limited small self. Together we will move into states of awakened ecstasy where the mind has no option but to allow the spirit to move the body in a way that is fully connected, fearless, and free.

All ages, bodies, movement styles are welcome! No previous dance experience required.
In fact, leave all of that at the door… come with a beginners mind.

This practice trains us to check in instead of out, attending to all causes within us and liberating our relationship to separation or pain.

Teacher trainees will have many opportunities to teach and be mentored in URU classes and in the training.
