I pin my hopes to quiet processes and small circles, in which vital and transforming events take place. Rufus Jones
My intention in these class offerings is to create a container of safety and choice for the practitioner. Classes are a collaboration where I hope practitioners slowly come to know and choose what is right for them, feel at ease within their bodies, and in relationship with their life circumstances.
Yoga Yoga North, Meditation (iRest® Yoga Nidra)
Monday, Wednesday, Friday at Noon
This hour long class includes a few minutes of gentle movement and/or pranayama, exploration of teachings and how they land in our experience, and 25 to 30 minutes of iRest® yoga nidra meditation. There is ample time for both individual and group inquiry and sharing, as it feels appropriate.
Dharma Yoga, Gentle Hatha
Wednesday at 9:30am
I teach this class as a yoga nidra in movement class, where we are gently touching into our body sensations and wisdom throughout practice. Class begins with about 60 minutes of arriving, setting individual intention and exploring nourishing/enlivening movement. The last 15 minutes are devoted to softening through more restful poses and iRest® yoga nidra meditation.
Private Meditation & iRest® Yoga Nidra Sessions
I offer private meditation (iRest yoga nidra) sessions. iRest is a trauma informed, guided practice of meditation, self inquiry and relaxation that can uncover a transformative sense of well-being, wholeness and ease in life. This practice can be explored to help meet and alleviate anxiety, stress, and physical exhaustion, also to help with the integration of experiences old and new. We can specifically navigate the realm of emotions, beliefs, and memories if they are asking to be met.
There are many ways to explore one on one. I first take time to understand what is bringing you to private sessions. This allows me to tailor guided practice(s) that will meet you where you are. We can also work together in the form of a co-meditation dyad, where I sit with you as you meet and bring words to your experience. I may offer gentle guidance to support you in meeting experience as it is. During a dyad, I sit with the you without agenda and as a sacred mirror to your experience.
