Guest Teacher Janet Dailey Butler
Janet Dailey Butler is a 200 RYT- Naam Yoga Therapist,Yoga Therapeutics teacher, Level One Wisdom of the Earth Medicinal Aromatherapist, Reflexologist and Singer with over 12 years experience in the healing arts. Her office is
located in Manhattan and she teaches weekly classes at both Naam Yoga New York, and Reflections Center for Conscious Living. She leads annual Yoga Retreats and Reflexology workshops internationally. Her new mantra cd “The Naam Music” project, is available on iTunes and CD Baby. 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.
Her Reflexology studies began at the suggestion of her acupuncturist and healer Abdi Assadi, and she was certified with Laura Norman and Associates.
Soon after she met Dr. Levry, founder of Naam Yoga, in 2001 and immediately connected with his unique approach to yoga. As a former rock and roll singer, she loved the chanting and connection to sound healing. Naam Yoga is a complete science and yogic practice that works with sound, movement, and breath to restore vital energy to the entire body.
She completed a 150 hour Advanced Yoga Therapy training with Paula Tursi of Reflections Center for Conscious Living, which has profoundly affected her teaching and practice.
Janet believes in the power of sound, as we are all vibrational beings, as well as taking the time to meditate, commune with nature, and the deep healing that comes with forgiveness and connecting to your heart.
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 the areas of the heart, self-love, and forgiveness. You will learn self-healing techniques that include working with sacred sounds, proprioceptive exercises, meditations and journaling exercises.
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 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.
