A gentle exploration to free the psoas while creating stability in the pelvis.  The psoas is central in our being for core movement and balance, hence our creativity, such as dance, speech/song, and our awakening, are profound aspects of its function. Because the fight/fright/freeze mechanism (autonomic nervous system) is set in the psoas, the practices also can release and integrate imbedded impressions of stress and trauma. Ideal for women in pre-conception phase or menopause, and for men and women with back and pelvis aches, stress and anxiety.  This is a gentle and safe release-work approach to take you to your next step on your path in mind, body and spirit.

Experience profound relaxation and deep renewal through the practice of TotalYoga Nidra (yogic sleep), with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli, PhD, in her first US visit! Uma, with her husband, Nirlipta, were the first, and are still the only, people in the UK and possibly, in the world, to teach Yoga Nidra independently and in a way that compares the different styles and approaches.

A series of short yoga nidra practices will be alternated throughout the evening with time for questions and discussion about the nature of Yoga Nidra. There is no need to move; simply settle into deep comfort and listen.  Spoken word is accompanied by mantra and poetry, song and soundings to soothe and calm your nervous system. An evening of Total Yoga Nidra empowers you to refresh your vitality, boost your creativity and support your health and well being.

These meditative experiences can be used therapeutically for healing, as well as to enhance creativity and productivity and to improve sleep and general health.

Uma co-founded the Yoga Nidra Network in 2011 which liberates and expands the understandings of Yoga Nidra.

Join me this Spring in the experiences of Yoga at the magical Temenos Retreat Center.  Temenos offers access to nature and beauty that supports the pathway of going within.  The forest, pond, trails speckled with fall leaves, labryrith and views are just amazing.  This gem is right in our backyard, just a one hour drive from Northampton.
The name Temenos is taken from a Greek word meaning the sacred space surrounding a temple or an altar. Carl Jung used this same word to refer to the inner space deep within us where soul-making takes place. Here, we remember the sacredness of our natural world, rekindling our connections to the earth, water, and all the creatures and growing things inhabiting this temenos. In returning to the natural cycles of the earth, we learn to live in balance with nature.
Fee includes teaching & accommodations!
Food expenses will be shared averaging about $15 per day.
