Yoga Nidra ("Yogic sleep") is a guided practice that involves simply listening while lying in savasana for the entire class, inducing complete mental, emotional and physical relaxation. This versatile technique has been used in stress management, physical therapy, to enhance the learning process, to harmonize the deeper unconscious mind, and to ultimately awaken our inner potential. All our welcome, and all can benefit deeply from this practice! It is believed that a single hour of Yoga Nidra is as restful as 4 hours of conventional sleep... see for yourself!

with Stu Girling
Saturday-Sunday, 9/15-16 1:30-6pm
Register Early (10% Discount Through July 31st)
Stu Girling's weekend workshop is arranged according to the major joints of the body (Ankles, Hips, Shoulders/Wrists and Spine) and associated posture groups (Forward Folds, Hip rotations, Backbends, Shoulders, Twists and Binding). The sessions introduce anatomical concepts in an accessible and fun way and are very practically based with the intention of allowing students to discover those muscles and areas of the body that are restricting them and demonstrating ways that they can work on those areas with more specificity. The idea is that through greater understanding of how different areas of the body influence the finished postures students or teachers can learn release restricted areas, to sequence more efficiently and also reduce the risk of taking stress into vulnerable areas by moving in the right places. The sessions are suitable for all styles of yoga because rather than looking at specific alignment that might relate to one style or the other. Stu takes the route of exploring what might stop you achieving a desired alignment. All levels of student is catered for by providing the information in multiple layers and allowing students to practically explore at their own level. It is recommended to take them all together for a full anatomical journey; however, each one is equally valuable independently should you prefer to focus on a specific area. 

Fri, Oct 19, 2018 - February 24, 2019
A four-month, weekend-intensive program designed to equip students with a strong and sound knowledge and experience base, from which they can practice, teach and live their yoga off the mat and in their lives.   Comprehensive in its depth, breadth and substance, Adarsh and Heleen teach from many decades of dedicated personal practice, from an Ashtanga method that has its roots from a traditional source and lineage, the very foundation of all the "styles" of modern yoga we see today. This is no ordinary Teacher Training... guaranteed!  Please email info@downtownyogashala.com for further inquiries.
