Mind Body Restore Yoga Nidra Workshop with Shakti Assouline
Sunday, July 9th 2:30-4:30
Lay down and experience an incredibly easy, yet profoundly powerful form of meditation called yoga nidra. Instead of asking the mind to “be still,” we use the active nature of the mind and direct it in a way that relaxes the actual cerebral cortex, and thus rejuvenates the brain, mind and body. In this delicious state of receptivity, it is easy to shift old patterns of thought or behavior and rewire neural pathways to bring about more optimism, satisfaction and happiness. Nidra is also known to heal sleep difficulties, and nourish our entire system.

Yoga and Ayurveda for Diabetes Yoga workshop and Book Launch with Rachel Zinman
Sunday, October 8th
Whether you live with any type of Diabetes, have pre-diabetes are a caregiver to someone with diabetes or a yoga teacher wanting to know more about how you can support a person with diabetes in your class, you won’t want to miss this informative, motivating and life changing workshop.
International yoga teacher Rachel Zinman never thought it could happen to her. At the age of 42, nearly 25 years into her career as a yoga teacher and teacher trainer she was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. At first she was devastated and sure there had been some mistake. Fighting her diagnosis she relied on the profound health benefits of yoga and ayurveda to help to preserve her insulin producing cells. Eventually, facing some hard truths, she knew that the only way forward was to incorporate insulin into her diabetes management plan. This was the start of a journey to write a book to help people living with diabetes to discover the profound benefits of Yoga and to offer her wealth of knowledge through workshops and retreats worldwide.
Register now… Registration includes the book.
In this workshop Rachel will share…
A short talk introducing:
– Why Yoga is the perfect compliment to a daily diabetes management plan
– What sorts of yoga styles are suited to the type of diabetes someone has
– How yoga benefits someone living with diabetes and their caregivers
– The beauty of the healing science of Ayurveda and how knowing ones individual constitution can help manage diabetes
A yoga practice including:
– a simple breathing technique to melt away stress
– a well rounded flowing easy sequence for every type of diabetes
– a calming meditation
The workshop will conclude with a short reading from Rachel’s new book, Yoga for Diabetes, How to manage your health with Yoga and Ayurveda and a book signing.
“So often the medical world treats diabetes, and all chronic disease, from a purely mechanistic, reductive framework, ignoring the complex reality of how disease affects body, mind and spirit. Rachel does a beautiful job of integrating western physiology, yoga and Ayurveda into a fluid practice that can be tailored to our individual needs.” Lisa Nelson MD – Director of Medical Education, Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health
