Mama Hypno Yoga
Debi Tracy, a Certified Hypnotist as well as a Registered Yoga Teacher has merged her passions of hypnosis and yoga into Mama Hypno Yoga. She saw that the mental state during Savasana was ideal for expanding the benefit of the yoga through a brief hypnotic trance.
The Yoga Practice precedes a 20-minute expanded Savasana–the unique and uplifting new feature that sets Mama Hypno Yoga apart from all others. Hypno Yoga has been taught to enthusiastic yoginis at world-renowned spas such as The Golden Door, The Greenhouse and the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort. All are welcome; no prior yoga experience is necessary.
Our over analytical approach to realty and addiction to over stimulation makes it difficult for Western Civilization to get a grip on the concept of meditation, let alone practice it. The good news is that we are naturally predisposed to enter into an Alpha state every 90 minutes of the day. However, we grab a Starbucks instead of a siesta and press on. As one Beta wave compounds on top of another, it makes it increasingly difficult to disengage at the end of the day.
When our head finally does hit the pillow at night, we skip the Alpha phase and move directly into Theta or Delta. Since Alpha is where the rejuvenation process takes place, we may find ourselves waking up exhausted simply to start the entire process over again, consequently developing a chronic stress pattern that can lead to diminished vitality and depression.
Mama Hypno Yoga will not only familiarize you with Alpha but will also help you to integrate these rhythms into everyday life with more frequency. Twenty minutes in Savasana allows you to anchor it into the cellular memory of the body, and research has found ten minutes in Alpha can be more rejuvenating than one hour of conventional sleep.
Hypnosis is a natural phenomenon of the mind that increases openness to positive change. Mama Hypno Yoga synthesizes Hatha, Vinyasa and Kundalini Yoga; along with meaningful imagery and suggestions for healthy transformation during the final resting pose known as Savasana. The natural healing that occurs during this deep relaxation promotes at the minimum regeneration, youthfulness, joy and expansion.
You will discover that as a result of this, a seemingly magical phenomenon occurs. The external world begins to organize itself around the higher intelligence or harmonious rhythms of the heart.
Yoga practitioners have known for centuries that the practice of Yoga exercise engages both mind and body. At the end of a session, a relaxed pose of “Savasana” allows one to absorb the full benefit of the discipline as one prepares to re-enter the world of daily activities. But what if that state of mind were the beginning of something creatively delicious, intensely personal and authentically even more beneficial?
Bridging Spirituality and Science
As multifaceted beings we are capable of enjoying a multifaceted universe. A willingness to align ourselves with a non-linear way of thinking i.e. alpha is key. It is heaven on earth and Mama Hypno Yoga is ready to take you there.
Mama Hypno Yoga stimulates Alpha rhythms that orient you toward right brain or non-linear thought. This Alpha state becomes a portal into the infinite creative self, which is divine. Science has found that the brain emits various levels of frequencies of brain waves that have been classified as Alpha, Beta, Theta and Delta. Beta is characteristic of a normal linear based daytime functioning pattern. Alpha is calmer and meditative. Theta is sleep and Delta is even deeper sleep. The Alpha state is the state that Hypno-Yoga expands on. This sublimely altered state is not only rejuvenating but is highly creative as well.
