Are you overwhelmed by the demands on your attention?
Are you longing for relief from the perpetual state of digital distraction?
Do you feel constantly pulled in a thousand directions? At the mercy of external stimulation? Too easily triggered?
Have you forgotten how to focus? Like really narrow your attention, without interruption, to read, or write, or nourish your soul with creativity?
Do you sometimes feel hopeless that you’ll ever be able to re-connect with the spacious silence within?
What if you could find an embodied sense of re-connecting with your inner wisdom? How grounding would that feel?
The longing for refuge is imbued in what it means to be a human being.
Refuge is not a location, it is an intention.
Refuge is not running away, but choosing what you want to move toward.
And refuge is available to you, right now, on your yoga mat.
Refuge is a central theme in the wisdom tradition of yoga.
This self-paced immersion explores how you can find your own special refuge in the midst of your busy your life.
We examine how you can live grounded in that space of refuge every day.
This immersion is self-paced, which means all sessions are available to you as soon as you enroll.
The sessions are designed to be watched about once a week.
Each 2.5hr session contains a discussion, practice, and includes some personal homework assignments to think about before you watch the next session.
Mostly, we deepen our understanding of refuge by experiencing it together on the mat.
The four sessions focus respectively on:
Refuge must not be just understood, it must also be felt in the body. And what they can each teach us, specifically, about refuge.
Together we practice active asana, pranayama, Restorative poses, and meditation to experience what they can each teach us, specifically, about refuge.
An earlier pioneer in conscious rest, Judith Hanson Lasater has trained teachers to teach Restorative yoga since 2001.
Her two books on Restorative yoga “Relax and Renew" (1995) and "Restore and Rebalance” (2017) are used around the world in teacher training programs.
Judith is also a passionate overachiever who, as mom of three, grandma of nine, and author of 11 books, understands the allure of busy-ness. But she also deeply appreciates the urgency of slowing down and finding refuge, not just for ourselves but for our families, friends, and the planet.
She likes to say: “Savasana is a 20 minute gift you gift to yourself, and the world, at the same time.”
Lizzie is Judith’s daughter who has practiced yoga since 2002.
Trained as a yoga teacher and designer, she’s passionate about producing and hosting digital yoga courses.
And as a working mom of three-year-old twin boys, Lizzie very much understands the importance of sustainable self-care.

One year from the day you enroll. That way you can relax and feel spacious with the self-paced material.
What level is this immersion? Is it suitable for beginners? Or, what if I’m a yoga teacher?
Open to all levels, Judith offers suggested modifications to fit beginning students. And for teachers, this is a wonderful opportunity to saturate yourself in self-practice. What could be a better gift to your students?

Yes! You’ll receive a certificate for 10 hours of continuing education that you can submit to Yoga Alliance, or similar international organization.

A beautiful step into consciousness of how we live our lives "in the present moment" of each day, each hour, each moment. "Staying present" and finding that "refuge" within the center of our bodies, (brain, heart, and belly) is a tool of peace. I love the brilliant honesty of Judith and Lizzie as they share their imperfect episodes of their real day to day lives and show us their practice of finding refuge. They help us embrace the "human side of ourselves"; with the sweetest chuckle "O how human of me" Not perfection. Stop the fighting with our own minds......and they laugh and share with us a personal journey of practicing, practicing and getting better day by day. Thank you dear friends and teachers. I look forward to this Sunday of Refuge within my Self! Excellent 5 Star course! 🌟♥️☀️Read Less
