Aminda Courtwright – Hypno Restorative Yoga Practice
Sunday, February 10, 2013 from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM (MST)
Aminda is an E-RYT 200 Instructor, Certified in Anjali Restorative Yoga, Vinyasa(power) and Yin Yoga with Yoga Nidra, Therapeutic Yoga and Jivamukti training. She is also a Clinically Certified Transpersonal Hypnotherapist, Thai Yoga Masseuse, Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist and Reiki Master. Aminda came to yoga to heal emotionally, and in that discovery of personal healing she was inspired to share its healing opportunities with others and to guide others to be the change they wish to see in the world. Her philosophy revolves around the idea that we are all one, that by healing our own heart we heal those around us, by fully experiencing self love we can love others more deeply and she ardently believes that regardless of where we are at any moment our life’s purpose is to discover and reveal our authentic being and reside in a place of tranquility and joyous discovery. She reminds us to lead with our heart and share our light with all beings everywhere.
When she isn’t teaching, training or hypnotizing people you can see her riding her motorcycle, shopping farmers markets, braving the streets of Dallas on her beach cruiser, being overly political on facebook, doting on her dashing husband Carl, and of course spoiling her dog, Asimov. She is dedicated to donating her time as a yoga teacher for various charities, to continuing her own education and with any luck changing the world as she goes! (She is most excited for her upcoming training with the Prison Yoga Project!)
Hypno Restorative Yoga Practice – Chakra Balance/Release and Energize 1.Enjoy the luxury of true relaxation with yoga poses designed to support your body and release tensions easily. While your body is open and relaxed Aminda will lead you through hypnotic guided imagery designed to release blocks and past beliefs, thereby creating the space to allow abundance and ease into your daily life. The combination of physical and subconscious release brings about a sense of calm, clear mindedness and often allows for healing of both physical and emotional pain. Ending with a full guided yoga Nidra you plant the seeds of intention deep into the subconscious with a sankalpa so that the healing and change stays with you long after the class ends. Leave feeling relaxed, refreshed and revitalized in mind – body – spirit!! This is a truly an all levels, all abilities practice as brand new or restricted students have access to the restorative postures and advanced students experience a profoundly deep meditative state. The more of your own props you can bring (the whole class is on the floor in prop supported poses) the more comfortable you can get and the deeper you can go!
