Dulce Sueños

Yin Yoga & Restorative-Yoga Nidra w/ (optional)
Acupuncture & Cupping Therapy

with kristine keegan & kristen boze

❤🔆❤

In this workshop you will enjoy the sweet serenity of deep relaxation. 
Yoga Nidra is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, also known as yogic sleep. It is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness. The concept roots from ancient Indian tradition, as a practice of opening to the deeper phases of the mind; promoting internal healing and reduction of tension and anxiety. This uniquely relaxed state produces brain waves that allow one hour of practice to be the equivalent of four hours of sleep.


Auricular (ear) acupuncture has an incredible way of making you present. It helps to make your mind and body receptive to your experiences by downshifting the nervous system from sympathetic (fight or flight) mode, into parasympathetic (resting) mode. This shift, allows you to let go mentally, so that you are more easily able to let go physically.

Your experience will begin with Yin Yoga postures, which will allow you to more fully relax and let go into Restorative poses, that will prepare your body for meditation. After finding comfort in a supported Shavasana, with blankets and bolsters, we will begin Yoga Nidra. This practice is a guided meditation, taking you step by step to a blissful state of relaxation; allowing you to experience “a conscious awareness of deep sleep”.
The (optional) addition of Cupping Therapy, in this setting, allows you to take full advantage of this rarely experienced (to this degree), relaxed state of your nervous system. The ability of Acupuncture, and of Yoga Nidra, to ease both physical and mental stress and tension; will put your body in an optimal and unparalleled state of relaxation. This level of relaxation will allow you to receive the most desirable, potential benefits that Cupping Therapy has to offer.

No meditation or yoga experience is necessary; the only thing you need is an open mind.

🌑 CELEBRATING  the THREE FULL MOONS 🌑 
of SUMMER with

YOGA UNDER the STARS ⭐ 

with ROBIN IVY PAYTON

Summer is the season of growing and blossoming. This practice will be a unique sequence of postures, designed specifically to align us with the heavens. This summer we’ll be practicing during eclipse season; with powerful vibrations, and catalysts for personal and universal shifts.

As Pisces Full Moon lights the late summer sky, heavenly bodies form the shape of a kite! Our yoga sequence celebrates the harmony and symmetry of this Full Moon following 3 summer eclipses. With yoga postures, mudra and meditation drawing us to wholeness, emotional freedom, and inner wisdom, Robin will also offer tarot cards both individually and collectively as part of our practice in awakening intuition.

☔   In the case of inclement weather, class will take place inside the studio.

$15 Drop-in / NO Preregistration required.

Monday 🌑 August 27th 🌕 6:00-7:30pm

FULL MOON – CLOUD9 🌑 4:30pm

Astrologically, this is a good time for “letting go”; for releasing all that doesn’t serve you and making space for what does. Acupuncture and Cupping Therapy are excellent tools for encouraging your mind and body to do just that. There will be a special Cloud9 class, at 4:30pm (arrive by 5:15) for those who are interested, and who are also attending Full Moon Yoga.  Visit the CLOUD9 page for more information. $15-
