Guest Teacher Janet Dailey Butler

KimaYoga Janet Dailey Butler is a 200 RYT- Naam Yoga Therapist,Yoga Therapeutics teacher, Level One Wisdom of the Earth Medicinal Aromatherapist, Reflex- ologist 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.

Recently she completed a 150 hour Advanced Yoga Therapy training with Paula Tursi of Reflections Center for Conscious Living, which has pro- foundly 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 quiet the mind, walk in nature, and the deep healing that comes with forgiveness and connecting to your heart.

Sole Awakening Reflexology Workshop

Are you feeling ungrounded? In this day and age of faster, faster, more, more, many of us are feeling the effects of not being “in our body”.
During this workshop you will learn how to care for your feet, so you can feel grounded and supported from your foundation on up. We are meant to move with grace and ease. Healthy feet are flexible and strong!!

We will begin the workshop with gentle movements that help to open up the feet and the body’s channels of energy. Working in partners, you will learn several vital Reflexology points on the foot that can assist your digestive system, the entire nervous system, and increase circulation. You will walk away with a basic understanding of how this ancient natural healing method can help you and your loved ones.

Included in the workshop will be the use of specific Wisdom of the Earth Medicinal Plant Essences to help raise our vibrations and benefit your overall health. All are welcome.

Janet’s Philosophy

IMG_0230 Yoga is a way of life for me. It has lead me through many levels of deep exploration and continues to do so daily. It keeps me humble and reminds me to listen. My style of teaching is influenced by a great love of both sound and silence, of movement and stillness, curiosity and being open to all the universe is constantly showing us. My greatest teachers have been Dr. Levry and Paula Tursi. Through Dr. Levry I learned how healing sitting amongst a group of people chanting mantra under the guidance of a master can be. Through Paula Tursi I have found the profound affect of being present with my body, moving from both an inner and outer world and how divine the body truly is. My classes are a mix of both Yoga Therapy, starting with breath work, gentle exercises to warm up specific areas that we are focusing on and then a mindful vinyasa flow followed by meditation. An awareness of the feet will always be included as they are the foundation.

My personal philosophy is to try to meet each student where they are and not to try change or fix anything but to create a safe healing environment for them to grow in. After a near death experience in Rincon Puerto Rico in 2005, I realized how precious each day is. When stressed and feeling ungrounded, I now have the tools of yoga to help me when I need it most; yoga helps me fine tune my body, mind and spirit or what I consider to be my temple. We are all vibrational beings living in a vibrational universe. When we come together to practice yoga healing occurs on many levels.

For our retreat week at Anamaya, I look forward to teaching an energetic morning Vinyasa class and a more restorative Gentle Flow class that will include working with the Chakras or energy centers along the spine. All Classes will include breath work and meditation with an introduction to seed sounds, and the use of Wisdom of the Earth medicinal plant essences to help us connect with mother earth.
