Guest Teacher Janet Dailey Butler
Janet Dailey Butler blends sound healing, aromatherapy, yoga, and reflexology into a unique and joyful system for self-care.
Janet began her study of yoga over 15 years ago during a healing crisis. An active rock & roll singer, Janet was in the midst of a drug addiction and determined to take healing into her own hands. She experienced great relief in her first yoga class and since then has continued her study of healing so others might benefit in the same way she has.
Janet began her reflexology studies over 12 years ago at the suggestion of her acupuncturist and healer Abdi Assadi. She was certified as a reflexlologist with Laura Norman and Associates. Soon after, she met Dr. Levry, founder of Naam Yoga, and immediately connected with his unique approach to yoga. As a former rock & roll singer, she loved the chanting and connection to sound healing in Naam Yoga.
Janet is a 200 hour RYT through Naam Yoga, a (150 hour) Yoga Therapist trained by Paula Tursi of Reﬂections Center for Conscious Living and a Level One Wisdom of the Earth Medicinal Aromatherapist working with essential oils and plant essences.
Janet believes in the power of sound, taking time to meditate and be in nature, and the deep healing that comes with forgiveness and connecting to your heart. Her ofﬁce is located in Manhattan and she teaches weekly classes at Naam Yoga New York, and Reﬂections Center for Conscious Living. She leads annual Yoga Retreats and Reﬂexology workshops internationally. Her new mantra release “The Naam Music Project,” is available on iTunes and CD Baby.
Yoga is a way of life for Janet. Janet’s style of teaching is influenced by a great love of sound and silence, of movement and stillness, of curiosity and being open. The teachers that have influenced her most are Dr. Levry and Paula Tursi. Through Dr. Levry, she experienced how healing chanting mantra under the guidance of a master could be. Through Paula Tursi, whom she continues to study with, she has discovered what it is to be present in body, moving from both an inner and outer world and learning to appreciate the body as divine architecture.
As a yoga teacher, Janet’s personal philosophy is to try to meet each student where they are and not try to change or fix anything, but to create a safe healing environment for them to explore in. Janet believes that everything we are experiencing in life is moving us towards perfect happiness and a profound sense of peace and belonging. She believes life is about love, reconnecting to our truth, and uncovering our unique gifts so that we can share them with the planet.
During this retreat, Janet will share the tools of Yoga Therapy, Naam Yoga, Medicinal Aromatherapy, and Reflexology, focusing on reconnecting to you Joy! You will learn self-healing techniques that include working with sacred sounds, special meditations that help to activate our intuitive intelligence, and breath work that stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system allowing us to feel at ease and at peace with ourselves.
The “Morning Flow” classes will utilize the power of the sun, breath work, and a mindful vinyasa sequence that opens the body’s energy channels. The “Restore and Renew” evening classes will include deeply restorative poses, medicinal aromatherapy, and meditations for self-healing.
There will also be two “Sacred Soles” reflexology and medicinal aromatherapy workshops during the week. In these workshops, you will learn how this ancient method can help to activate the body’s self- healing mechanisms. Learn foot exercises, how to work with pure plant essences, and specific reflexology points that can help release deeply held stress and bring your body back into a more balanced state.
