“Even a soul submerged in sleep is hard at work and helps make something of the world.”             – Heraclitus

Are troubling dreams interfering with your sleep? Do you ever wake up feeling anxious or alarmed, knowing that you have been dreaming, but unable to get back to sleep? Dream expert Mia Woodford has a toolkit that can help you turn these troubling dreams into your allies. If you wish, bring your own dreams to share in this safe and supportive, experiential workshop.

The Iyengar Yoga tradition is known for its therapeutic applications. In his medical classes, Yoga master BKS Iyengar created “yoga prescriptions” to help alleviate many ailments. Our focus in this workshop will be on the sequences of asana (yoga postures), active and restorative, and pranayama (yoga breathing) for anxiety and insomnia. Yoga Nidra, a specialized guided relaxation with visualizations will also be practiced.
