A Divine Recipe for Transformational Rest
Join Tara Temple as she blends the healing methods of restorative yoga and yoga nidra to create a sanctuary of peace and complete relaxation.
What is Restorative Yoga?
Restorative Yoga takes yoga poses, that are usually active and done standing, and brings them to the floor. You are supported by bolsters (large pillows), blankets and blocks in passive poses that allow you to hold the pose for an extended amount of time to open your body, find gentle stretching and release held tensions. This is a healing yoga allowing the mind and body to relax so that the body can repair, deep relaxation can occur and restore a natural balance within the body. Mind, body and breath are united and the benefits are numerous. Lights are dimmed, calming music is played and aromatherapy set the stage for this soothing peaceful practice. No yoga experience is needed and every level of student is welcome. Especially nurturing for those with chronic illness, pain or injury.
What Is Yoga Nidra?
Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation that has the power to transform, heal and rejuvenate you at your core levels. Through the use of body sensing, breath awareness, guided imagery and other practices, you are systematically guided on a journey through your whole being called the koshas.
What It Does: Transforms Stress Into Healing
Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra switches you out of flight or fight and into the relaxation response — your body’s natural healing state — where revitalization and regeneration naturally occur. Your body knows exactly what to do to attain, and maintain, perfect health and equilibrium, all you need to do is switch on the healing switch. Divine Sleep is the button that can bring you effortlessly, compassionately, and rapidly into relaxation and healing.

She furthered her study by taking immersions in Pranayama and Meditation. Tara has studied with Jillian Pransky, Jennifer Reis, Ellen Pfeffer, Tari Prinster, Mark Whitwell, Johnathon Foust, Richard Faulds, Seane Corn, Sharon Salzberg, Kelly McGonigal, Dharma Mittra, and Shiva Rea.

Tara thinks of her practice “as a prayer of thanks and a way of deepening my connection with God and my true self. I feel blessed and honored to have the opportunity to share the wonderful gifts with others that I have received from my many teachers”. Some of Tara’s other passions include wildlife rehabilitation, stained glass, gardening, cooking, being of service to others, and nature.
