Workshops

At the end of Yoga Nidra, I was ‘in the Zone’ – that delicious relaxation that I sometimes get during a massage. Being guided through Yoga Nidra is the only other experience where I’ve felt that delicious relaxation.”

Yoga Nidra induces deep relaxation throughout your entire body and mind and enables you to eliminate stress and can help resolve personal problems and trauma. It can neutralize anxiety, fear, anger, depression and insomnia. It teaches you how to enter deep meditation, and in its ultimate form, Yoga Nidra helps you be with the mystery of life and such questions as, “Who am I?” and “What is enlightenment?”

 

Yoga Nidra is an ancient form of yogic meditation. Kevin teaches a modern adaptation of Yoga Nidra, also called iRest®, developed by his main Yoga Nidra teacher, Richard Miller. Yoga Nidra helps you break free of self-limiting patterns, emotions and beliefs so that you may live a contented life, free of conflict, anxiety and suffering. In its ultimate form, Yoga Nidra reveals the secret of enlightenment and introduces you to your True Nature as joyful and radiant Presence.

 

There are many studies that have proven the efficacy of relaxation and meditation. The great thing about Yoga Nidra is that it eases you into meditation, effortlessly, through the valley of deep relaxation. You find yourself ascending the slopes of meditation without even “trying to meditate”. All this while lying down! It can also be practiced seated or standing, and then throughout one’s daily life.

 

This practice offers tangible tools to:

  • profoundly relax
  • deeply rejuvenate
  • sleep well
  • improve your digestion, memory, and concentration
  • de-stress
  • support your immune system
  • reduce pain and fatigue
  • improve your flexibility
  • resolve personal problems and trauma
  • neutralize anxiety, fear, anger, depression, and insomnia.

These workshops begin with some gentle, mindful movements and segue into the practice of Yoga Nidra. As one person said, ‘I finally found a practice that allows me to deeply relax and meditate.’ Come experience it for yourself. To prepare, I would suggest you have the following ready for the workshop: 
  • Your practice space is warm enough.
  • You will not be disturbed during practice.
  • Enough cushioning on the floor for you to lie on your back for 45 minutes or so.
  • A blanket to cover yourself with, if you wish.
  • A blanket to fold to support your head and neck, if you need that to keep your neck neutral.
  • A bolster, or could be a couple of blankets rolled together, to put behind your knees.  Some people like another bolster, possibly a bit smaller, to put underneath your ankles/heels.
I will guide you through using the props. Again, I really look forward to offering this gift, this gem of a practice. Until then, all the best, Kevin

What People Are Saying About Yoga Nidra:

“Wow… did i sleep well after that class… yummmm”

 

“I’m a busy person, my mind is always active. But after Yoga Nidra my mind was completely clear.”

 

“In yin and restorative yoga during meditation I am often uncomfortable and I shift my body around a lot. In Yoga Nidra I found that I was completely relaxed; it’s the most relaxed I have ever been in my life.”

 

“I have a weekly massage that I get so I can relax. After Yoga Nidra I was as relaxed as I am when I get a massage.”

 

“In the body scan section of Yoga Nidra I felt completely released into the floor, so relaxed. I never sleep entirely through the night, so this is a big gift to me to be able to relax and experience that rest.”

 

“It’s like when you feel the warmth and glow of stepping into the sun.  Except, with Yoga Nidra, that glow is coming from inside.”

 ONLINE EVENTS

HEALING THE VOICE
HEALING THE HEART

An Online Chanting Workshop
with Kevin

School of Voice Berlin

SUN April 25, 2021
10:30am – 12 Central
5:30 – 7pm Berlin
Location: Online

 

You’re not alone if you have ever felt self-conscious about your voice, whether speaking or singing. So many of us have been wounded when it comes to finding our voice and letting it ring and resound, speaking our truth. I can’t tell you how many people have told me stories, often with tears in their eyes, of careless or even cruel comments that others have made about their voice, especially when they were singing or chanting. Even people who have been told they have a ‘good voice’ often feel that their self-worth is entangled with how well they sound or perform. Rest assured, there is a way to heal your voice and heal your heart from these wounds. 

Kevin will take you through simple sound healing warmups.  He will then use call and response to teach a short Vedic chant, in Sanskrit and English, that connects our voices to our hearts.

 

There is a great freedom available, because chanting is not about how you sound to other people, or what they think of your voice, but rather about how you experience the sounds, feeling, and meaning of the chants within yourself! This realization and experience is incredibly empowering. We start where you are, as you are. By listening with love there is always healing, growth, and joy. All are welcome!

“I love to sing, 
It opens my heart.  
I have never known a teacher like Kevin so willing to connect to the heart-minds-spirits of students and, to radiate the lineage that he has been following is an added gift. It makes a difference, you can feel it.


In the past years, I have been gifted the opportunity to learn 
Chanting with Kevin. I am grateful to think of how powerful this gift has been for me. Chant elevates me to a place that I am so grateful for. Kevin is patient, kind, understanding, and at the same time, he is serious about his teaching. That is why I am his student. I am serious about learning, and Kevin really knows how to teach. After all, I am singing even though people say I can’t do it. And learning by leaps and bounds.”
