Yoga Nidra... the Journey Home with Jana Roemer

Apply to Nidra Training

Notes From Jana:

My intention is to create a deeply personal experience that will help to clear blockages and allow you time to explore your inner landscape so the practice speaks for itself. This training will set you up to guide yoga nidra practices with confidence.

 

We will take a careful look at the following topics: 

~ developing a more intimate relationship with your breath 

~ the basic template of a Yoga Nidra practice as taught through the Bihar lineage, yet influenced by current research on the practice. 

~ theory / why?

~ witnessing principle

~ the nature of the mind

~ neurology as relevant to the practice (brain wave states, neuroplasticity of the brain, etc)

~ subconscious programming / samskaras

~ limiting beliefs

~ altering the infrastructure of the mind

~ scriptwriting and language

~ sankalpa 

~ practicum

~ music selection

~ meditation

~ pre-practice movement theory and sequences to clear and enhance pranic flows within the nidra practice

~ and more

With almost a decade of experience leading public classes, privates, 3000 hours of facilitation of 200hr and 300hr YTT's, international retreats and other trainings, Jana has finally birthed this work into Practices of Self Love through her own, most authentic voice. She works in intuitive and loving ways to help coax your truth to the surface. You will receive personal coaching, participate in group discussions and refine your skills as a nidra guide through a teaching practicum and an optional post-training mentorship.

My Journey with Yoga Nidra - Jana Roemer

Yoga Nidra is the practice that took me home into the softest, gentle womb inside my heart. After years of work to silence my hyperactive, sometimes neurotic mind using tools of yoga, breathwork and meditation, yoga nidra gave me something nothing else ever could: Silence. 
 

Over a decade ago in Edmonton, Alberta, Jessica Fergusson and Jai Kai were the first yoga nidra guides I encountered, but I actually had no idea what I was doing, nor was I able to make it past my right big toe in the body scan. All I knew is that I woke up feeling amazing and my mind and nervous system were calm. 

 

My thirst to understand the practice became unquenchable so I dove in deep with Tanis Fishman. After that first teacher training, I scoured my notes for every single reference she offered and continued my studies gobbling up books, taking online courses, studying with other teachers and practicing nearly every day. The more I practice, the more my inner world opens & the more attuned I become to my inner teacher. In essence, this practice gifted me a rebirth of my mind space.

About Jana Roemer

Midwife of Awakening

There are so many ways to be a Human and within each life, we live multiple incarnations determined by our choices. To explain who I am by listing experiences, hardships or moments of joy only offers a distorted glimpse. We live. We make choices. We deal with consequences. We break, we grow, we forgive, we celebrate, we laugh. This is life. We all do it and it looks different for each of us. In the end, we all long for the same things: To be heard. To be seen. To belong. To love and be loved.

 If I could add a dimension to your existence, it would be that you long to listen so that you desire to hear every single cell of your body through multiple portals of perception in every moment. I believe your body is an ear to the Universe and a map to a hidden reality, a gateway to intuition and that it is our job to release the imprints of our past from our tissues. I believe we are a species in a state of evolution, transforming into a psychic society. Integrity is no longer optional; align with your truth and honesty. I believe that our species’ survival depends on those willing to wade out into the unknown to imagine a future that has yet to exist and then ground that futuristic reality into now. I am a Mystic who appreciates science, yet my curiosity doesn’t end there. I’d rather challenge science than silence my intuition. I came here with an attention to detail and desire for perfection, which untamed could easily drive me nuts and when harnessed is a curious guide to radical new ideas and ways of BE-ing. I’m a rebellious provocateur. I speak things often left unsaid and have learned to be comfortable in discomfort. I love deeply and choose joy over suffering and recognize that there are times when a bout of suffering is the only way to that joy.  The way I teach reflects all of this.

 Astrology and plant wisdom are other obsessions of mine that are woven into my teachings. I also run moon circles, essential oils workshops and do natal chart readings.

With roots in Canada, after 20 years of traveling and studying with respected teachers and nearly a decade in the role of teacher, my home is in Venice, CA where I lead classes at Love Yoga Space. I also offer in-home private sessions and facilitate 200-hour yoga teacher trainings in my living room and run 300-hour YTT's with Sasha Bahador, a Soulful guide who, like me, feels called to do it a little differently. The 2019 menu includes two Yoga Nidra trainingsa 200 hr YTT and online offerings including the ongoing Astro Nidras and Insight Timer courses and content.

 A hilarious star-seed of a child chose to join us about four years ago. We called him Freddie Wilde. He has stretched my heart's capacity for love, awoken emotional responsiveness and sensitivities and challenges me beyond measure. He and his father are by far my most profound teachers these days.

Heal Evolve Thrive- The Fall Retreat- with Trish Dingman & Maddi Rundle

The Retreat is for EVERYONE; yoga teachers, school teachers, community leaders, activists, health care providers, parents, and ALL PEOPLE in nurturing roles whom feel overwhelmed and exhausted from caring so deeply for others, while often at a loss for how to care for themselves. 
The term Compassion Fatigue refers to the profound emotional and physical erosion which takes place when one is caring for others without getting the proper refuelling and regeneration. 
This retreat will explore how we as humans “over extend” ourselves. Through psychotherapy, yoga, philosophy, meditation, play and group discussion, we will create space to recover from compassion fatigue.

Heal Evolve Thrive- Yoga Teacher Training- with Trish Dingman & Maddi Rundle

This is not your regular Yoga Teacher Training!  
This YTT’s focus is NOT to quit your job and become a studio yoga teacher (though you could choose to do that, after this training)
LIVING ON PURPOSE encourages taking the teachings, the wisdom and the love to places beyond yoga studio walls.
LIVING ON PURPOSE's aim is to infuse all spaces of your life with self love practices, not necessarily as a career change; but to embody this wisdom to bring more light to where you currently reside. LIVING ON PURPOSE ’s focus is to help YOU to remember your practice, your rituals, your voice and share it every where in your lives. To NOT necessarily be the “Yoga Teacher” who holds the light- but use this light to reflect who you already are. The Hygienist who holds the light. The Accountant who holds the light. The Lawyer who holds the light. The Barista who holds the light. The Doctor who holds the light. The parent, the Grandparent, the Partner, the School Teacher - who holds this light- even if you never share the postures, you are aware you are holding the light for those who have not yet remembered.
Trish and Maddi want to help build an army of heart warriors, who are remembering WHO WE ARE and reminding others.

Have trouble sleeping? Or settling the mind/body?

This guided meditation systematically guides and relaxes you at every level of your being including your physical, energetic, mental, emotional, and spiritual layers. Through the use of breath awareness, body scanning, healing music and imagery, Divine Sleep invites you to become aware of each layer without needing to change and fix anything. It is intended to induce full body relaxation and a deep meditative state of consciousness. 

Researchers have even suggested that 20 minutes of Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra can be equivalent to 3 hours of sleep. 

We’ll start the evening off enjoying a nice tea and teaching about Yoga Nidra followed by an experience of Yoga Nidra that includes guided imagery and body scanning to aid your healing experience. The great thing is that you can't do it wrong!

Date: Friday August 10th, 2018
Time: 7-9pm
Cost: $35.00 (+hst)

BreathWork Experience- With Serah Ruth Goldberg

BreathWork is a conscious connected breathing technique that makes use of the body’s inherent ability to cleanse and heal itself.

Come experience the power of your breath.
