Guest Teacher Janet Dailey Butler
Janet Dailey Butler blends yoga, sound healing, aromatherapy, and reflexology into a unique and joyful system for self-care.
She came into this work over a decade ago as a direct result of her own healing crisis. Self-healing, addiction, and several other challenging personal experiences led her to this path. Almost 19 years ago, in her first yoga class, Janet experienced great relief from the pain of detoxing and was drawn into this form of self-healing. Janet began her reflexology studies over 12 years ago at the suggestion of her acupuncturist and healer Abdi Assadi. She was certified as a reflexologist 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 RYT through Naam Yoga, has completed 150 hour Corrective Yoga training with Paula Tursi of Reflections Center for Conscious Living and Yoga and is also a Level One Wisdom of the Earth Medicinal Aromatherapist working with essential oils and plant essences. Janet is a life long student of the mind, body, spirit connection and is grateful to the following people for helping me to rediscover my nature, helping me to regain my health at my darkest hour, and reconnecting me to my joy: Abdi Assadi, L.A.C, Dr. Joseph Michael Levry, Gabrielle Epstein Casper, Paula Tursi, My dearly departed mother Lois, who taught me true compassion, and my sisters Nancy and Carol.
“I am truly honored to bring the tools of yoga and self care to my students and clients, who teach me each and every day. Yoga is for every body! I am committed to creating a safe sacred environment for my students to explore in. I believe that reconnecting to our nature, finding the tools that support our nature and committing to raise our vibrations on a daily basis assists the planet. We are vibrational beings!”
Her office is located in Manhattan (Upper West Side) and she teaches weekly classes at Naam Yoga New York, and Reflections Center for Conscious Living and Yoga. She joyously leads annual Yoga Retreats and Reflexology workshops internationally. Her mantra release “The Naam Music Project,” is available on iTunes and CD Baby.
“Keep some room in your heart for the unimaginable.” ― Mary Olive
The daily yoga includes a morning “sunrise flow”, which is an invigorating flow that includes sun salutations, specific exercises that access the energy of the sun, pranayama (breath work), and meditation working with sacred sounds. The evening “restore and renew” classes will focus on healing through restorative poses, meditations (working with specific mantras), and rituals using medicinal aromatherapy.
Links to more information on Janet:
Yoga is a way of life for Janet. “I cannot imagine my life without this vast wisdom that has rocked my world since the very first class I took over 15 years ago.“ Janet’s style of teaching is influenced by a great love of sacred sounds, and the healing that takes place when we come together as community. The teachers that have influenced her most are Dr. Joseph Micheal 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 our happiness. Janet believes that life is about love, reconnecting to your truth, and sharing your gifts with the planet.
During this week we will tap into your very nature, your “I Am-ness”. Working with powerful breath exercises, yogic movements, and specific meditations as a community, that help us reconnect to our truth.” Our nature/truth, who we are, is not outside of us. We will join together in this place of beauty to enliven our senses, play, eat delicious healthy food, practice ancient yogic rituals in the morning and evening that strengthen our physical and energetic bodies. What is your nature? When you are connected to your truth, that which brings you joy, life flows. You will experience self-healing techniques that include working with sacred sounds, exercises to help access your energetic body and intuitive intelligence, and daily rituals that raise your body’s vibrations for vibrant health. All levels are welcome.
