Meditative Techniques for Self Healing: Rejuvenating and Balancing the Mind, Emotions, Body and Spirit
with Mello Mitchell

Saturday 12/9/2017
From: 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Room: Studio 2

Imagine how your life could improve by balancing your mind (stress reduction), calming emotions (anxiety relief) and preventing or softening physical distress. Your blood pressure and heart rate would decline. Your discomfort would be reduced or eliminated, in some cases relatively quickly. This workshop invites you to participate with an open mind and heart to explore, learn and practice safe meditations that strengthen and balance you. The practices were chosen for their simplicity and the relative ease which they can be learned and applied. They can be incorporated into your daily routine as a component of a health maintenance routine or used whenever a stressful situation arises. These proven practices originate from multiple healing modalities, including pranayama (breath work), mantra yoga and Reiki. Some have been around for thousands of years. They also compliment traditional medical therapies. Investment: $15.00 ​

Yoga Nidra  with Gina Matteucci
Button

Yoga Nidra, also known as yogic sleep, is an ancient meditation practice which allows participants to enjoy complete physical, mental, and emotional relaxation while exploring the deeper layers of the subconscious and unconscious mind bringing an incredible calmness, quietness and clarity to the practitioner. In this deep sleep meditation your conscious mind will gently guide you through thought patterns, emotions, images, and sensations 
The practice of Yoga Nidra reveals our innate intelligence and inherent wisdom which burns away negative patterns of conditioning, thus creating the space for the spontaneous physical, psychological and interpersonal transformations that can occur as a result of this practice. 

Yoga Nidra is one of the deepest of all meditations and is beneficial for people suffering from diseases such as hypertension, stress, diabetes, migraines, asthma, and digestive disorders. It has helped countless people release patterns of stress to help boost overall health, to sleep better and to lead more contended lives.
This 2 hour workshop will consist of discussion and a light gentle yoga practice to open and prepare the body for a 45 min meditation. Please wear comfortable clothes. A blanket will be provided, however it is recommended that you bring an extra pillow or cushion for extra comfort. Please bring an eye pillow or a washcloth/small towel to cover your eyes.

“We use Yoga Nidra to investigate and go beyond our limiting beliefs and conditioning, so that we may live a contented life, free of conflict, anxiety, fear, dissatisfaction, and suffering. And in its ultimate form, we use Yoga Nidra to unravel the sacred mystery of life and reveal the secret of enlightenment.” — Richard Miller, Ph.D.

Yoga History 



Modern Period
In the late 1800s and early 1900s, yoga masters began to travel to the West, attracting attention and followers. This began at the 1893 Parliament of Religions in Chicago, when Swami Vivekananda wowed the attendees with his lectures on yoga and the universality of the world’s religions. In the 1920s and 30s, Hatha Yoga was strongly promoted in India with the work of T. Krishnamacharya, Swami Sivananda and other yogis practicing Hatha Yoga. Krishnamacharya opened the first Hatha Yoga school in Mysore in 1924 and in 1936 Sivananda founded the Divine Life Society on the banks of the holy Ganges River. Krishnamacharya produced three students that would continue his legacy and increase the popularity of Hatha Yoga: B.K.S. Iyengar, T.K.V. Desikachar and Pattabhi Jois. Sivananda was a prolific author, writing over 200 books on yoga, and established nine ashrams and numerous yoga centers located around the world.
The importation of yoga to the West still continued at a trickle until Indra Devi opened her yoga studio in Hollywood in 1947. Since then, many more western and Indian teachers have become pioneers, popularizing hatha yoga and gaining millions of followers. Hatha Yoga now has many different schools or styles, including ashtanga yoga, emphasizing the many different aspects of the practice.

Yoga’s history has many places of obscurity and uncertainty due to its oral transmission of sacred texts and the secretive nature of its teachings. The early writings on yoga were transcribed on fragile palm leaves that were easily damaged, destroyed or lost. The development of yoga can be traced back to over 5,000 years ago, but some researchers think that yoga may be up to 10,000 years old old. Yoga’s long rich history can be divided into four main periods of innovation, practice and development.
Pre-Classical Yoga
The beginnings of Yoga were developed by the Indus-Sarasvati civilization in Northern India over 5,000 years ago. The word yoga was first mentioned in the oldest sacred texts, the Rig Veda. The Vedas were a collection of texts containing songs, mantras and rituals to be used by Brahmans, the Vedic priests. Yoga was slowly refined and developed by the Brahmans and Rishis (mystic seers) who documented their practices and beliefs in the Upanishads, a huge work containing over 200 scriptures. The most renowned of the Yogic scriptures is the Bhagavad-Gîtâ, composed around 500 B.C.E. The Upanishads took the idea of ritual sacrifice from the Vedas and internalized it, teaching the sacrifice of the ego through self-knowledge, action (karma yoga) and wisdom (jnana yoga).
Classical Yoga
In the pre-classical stage, yoga was a mishmash of various ideas, beliefs and techniques that often conflicted and contradicted each other. The Classical period is defined by Patanjali’s Yoga-Sûtras, the first systematic presentation of yoga. Written some time in the second century, this text describes the path of Raja Yoga, often called "classical yoga". Patanjali organized the practice of yoga into an "eight limbed path" containing the steps and stages towards obtaining Samadhi or enlightenment. Patanjali is often considered the father of yoga and his Yoga-Sûtras still strongly influence most styles of modern yoga.
Post-Classical Yoga
A few centuries after Patanjali, yoga masters created a system of practices designed to rejuvenate the body and prolong life. They rejected the teachings of the ancient Vedas and embraced the physical body as the means to achieve enlightenment. They developed Tantra Yoga, with radical techniques to cleanse the body and mind to break the knots that bind us to our physical existence. This exploration of these physical-spiritual connections and body centered practices led to the creation of what we primarily think of yoga in the West: Hatha Yoga.
