Namastday Workshops


Workshops at Namastday Yoga are different from regular classes in that they have a specific theme. The poses are sequenced for you to become aware of a particular part of the body, of yogic philosophy, of emotions and mind/body connections.  It is your chance to deepen you understanding of the poses and the actions within them. The pace is slower and more informative. You will get more individual attention.

Yoga Nidra & Restorative with Anna Delury Sun, Dec 3, 2017 at 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$55 Early Bird, $65 Day-Of
Yoga Nidra is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the "going-to-sleep" stage. It is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions. This state of consciousness (yoga nidra) is different from meditation in which concentration on a single focus is required. In yoga nidra the practitioner remains in a state of light pratyahara with four of his or her senses internalised, that is, withdrawn, and only the hearing still connects to the instructions.
Anna Delury is one of southern california’s Senior Iyengar yoga teachers and a founder of iyila. She has traveled regularly to pune to study with the iyengar family since 1982.
In 1988 she received a BSC. In kinesiology from UCLA. Known for her insight and wry sense of humor, Anna brings a practical application of yoga philosophy into each class, as she helps guide students to a deeper understanding and awareness of what lies within each of them.

Teaching and practicing has been a great blessing in Matt's life for the past decade. It is his biggest motivation. It moves and drives the actions he takes, and it lights up the lens through which he sees the world. He loves the precision of Iyengar, and the way in which it aligns the body. He appreciates equally the freedom and creativity Vinyasa offers, and the way Asana can become a dance, once the poses are understood. He blends the two together, and offers an intelligent, fluid and fun class. He has had the privilege to learn under a wide range of teachers and styles. He is a constant learner and an avid student, and is always taking what he learns into what he teaches. You can find and learn more about Matt on his Instagram account @mattphippen or website at
