At Uptown, we offer a variety of opportunities to deepen your practice. If you are looking to learn more, workshops, retreats and teacher training will take you to the next level. Common misconception is that you must have an advanced physical practice to join. No pre-requisite is required, just a willingness to learn.

7:30-8:30pm, Uptown Studio
Come experience a state of deep relaxation and peace as Alexandra offers an amazing sound journey, guided by the sacred sounds of crystal bowls and gongs. This practice is known by ancient traditions to “tune the soul”.
Sound healing is based on the principle that vibrations change consciousness. The healing vibrations pass through our bodies, opening blockages, helping you center and connect with the divine within. Using sound as a meditation helps eliminate the chatter of the thinking mind, allowing for a deep connection to self. It is within this connection that everything slips away, and we come into a state of deep peace.
Bring your yoga mat and feel free to bring your own blanket, pillow, cushions, or eye covering for added comfort.

Yoga Nidra for Transformation & Healing
with Lisa Coyle
Sunday, October 8
1:30-3:30pm, Austin Ranch
Each of us posses the innate human capacity for healing. We may need the support of a doctor from time to time- but the treatments themselves only help the body along its natural path toward healing and resolution.
The mind can also be healed, and deep spiritual yearnings can be resolved. Each of us experiences deep healing every night while in deep Non-REM sleep. This is when the body and the brain detoxify and process the nutrition and the events of the previous day. The ancient practice of Yoga Nidra takes us into a state that is equal to the state of non-dreaming sleep. In this place of stillness and complete relaxation we can use the practice to enhance and strengthen this innate healing capacity.
In this workshop with Para Yoga Nidra certified teacher, Lisa Coyle, you will prepare with an asana practice to balance the energy of the body and quiet the mind and then enter the magical practice of Yoga Nidra.
Yoga Nidra is done lying on your back for approximately 30 minutes. It’s important that you have the props (blankets, bolsters, etc.) to keep your body supported and completely comfortable during the practice. We will use a mindful Hatha yoga practice to prepare the body and the nervous system to rest comfortably.
