Events and Workshops

Myriad Yoga Events and Workshops

 We are proud to offer you many opportunities to expand your study and practice with these guest teachers!

Kirtan in Brownsville!

We will be starting a regular gathering of friends for food, Kirtan, Meditation, chanting, reading, etc… Others are invited to open discussion as well- this is a community centered event. As per request, we are now attempting early afternoon events! I myself and not an “evening person” and folks with children often find it difficult to be out in the evening. We hope you can attend!

Kirtan event is always free, but we do leave out an optional donation bowl to help pay for food and for gas for the traveling percussionists!

Quick Kirtan note: I have been trying to fit in a Kirtan event for you all, and I had one listed here for Sunday, March 4. But we now have a family commitment now for that evening. Honestly, fitting them in is getting more and more difficult! We will plan events for the future, but please be patient with us as we navigate many family responsibilities and personal obligations.  

Please do join us for Kirtan with Yvette in March, see below!

Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra ® is a form of meditation and transformation whose roots are grounded in the wide and deep field of yogic tradition found in yogic texts, philosophy and psychology. Not only is this practice relaxing and energizing; it has the power to transform us at deep levels to become more of who we are and to live life from an awareness of our true Self with clarity, purpose and confidence. It is one of the deepest of all meditations, going beyond meditation, as our awareness is led through each of the koshas to our true Self.
Nidra means sleep. Yoga means yoke, or union, wholeness and one-pointed awareness. Yoga Nidra, yogic, or dynamic, sleep, refers to awakening in every level of our being through a specific guided meditation practice.

An inviting practice, Yoga Nidra can be practiced by everyone, regardless of age or physical ability. All that is required is to lie down and listen. It is a systematic method of complete relaxation and peace, not only for the physical body, but also for the deeper emotional and mental systems, penetrating to the roots of stress and allowing the release of subconscious tensions and tendencies that inhibit us from living fully. Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra brings us to a place of deep calm, quiet and clarity.

Yoga practice can help us stay close to what matters most in our lives. It is a dynamic inquiry into the nature of what it is to be human and to live humanely. For me, on the mat, that includes practicing with curiosity, kindness, creativity, and care – particularly in the midst of challenge – and approaching the inquiry in a playful and lighthearted way.  
In this workshop we will play with props in simple and creative ways to explore the shapes and actions of basic, familiar poses and build toward more challenging poses. With curiosity, kindness, creativity, and care we will journey from the known to the unknown and back to the known, where we will arrive, perhaps, with a  clearer view of what matters most.

About Sue…

Sue first encountered yoga in 1988 while visiting Nepal between high school and college. She fell in love with the practice as it immediately enhanced all aspects of her life. She continued her studies at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health and, in 1997, received her Kripalu teaching certification.Since that time, Sue has taught classes throughout the Upper Valley.  In 2004, she began regular studies with Peentz Dubble, an Intermediate Junior III level Iyengar teacher. Sue’s teaching style is grounded in the Kripalu tradition of observing the interplay of body, mind, and energy through the lens of compassionate self-awareness, as well as the precision and clarity of the Iyengar method. Click here to learn more about Sue’s offerings. 
*Note from Angie: Sue is a long time yoga teacher in the Upper Valley, and she was a pivotal influence in my early days of teaching yoga. I first came to Sue while in teacher training. She patiently answered my questions and guided my practice. Sue is deeply inquisitive and brings careful attention to her teaching. She is a teacher of teachers and a well admired yogi. I am deeply honored to host her at Jai Studios. I hope you will join us for this special workshop.
