Sleep Alchemy:

Transforming Rest with Yoga Practices

Fall Equinox - September 23rd, 2023

The Fall Equinox is around the corner. Are you ready? To honor the change of seasons, 3HO is hosting “Sleep Alchemy: Transforming Rest with Yoga Practice.” In this all-day virtual program, we journey into the dreamspace of rest and deep sleep.

Rest as Resistance

Have you considered the relationship between sleep and your yoga practice? Have you prioritized sleep as a part of your practice? Have you considered rest, like your yoga, to be brave in a world that always begs you to do more? What does it mean to improve your sleep hygiene?

“We are not Machines. We are Divine.” 
-The Nap Ministry

Our nervous systems were made to handle the news of our village, not the entire world. The influx of information and stimuli today can be incapacitating, and for many of us leads to stress, fatigue, and health problems that stem from subpar sleep. 

Reclaiming your sacred sleep is a revolutionary act. Like your favorite kriya or meditation, rest is a tool for liberation and personal change. Join us for our Fall Equinox Program to unlock the secrets of profound rest through the practice of yoga. 

Event Highlights
  • The science of sleep and its impact on health and well-being.
  • Research-based evidence on the effectiveness of yoga practices for improved sleep.
  • Expert-led Kundalini Yoga sessions tailored for deep relaxation and sleep enhancement.
  • Tools to improve your sleep hygiene 
  • Deepen your understanding of Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine perspectives on rest and healing.

Mark your calendars and reserve your spot for the 2023 3HO Fall Equinox Program, Sleep Alchemy. Embrace the power of profound sleep and awaken to a life of serenity.

Raminderpreet Elisa first discovered Yoga at UCLA in 2000. Upon graduation, she trained in Hatha Yoga (Iyengar) with Yoga Works founders, Lisa Walford and Maty Ezraty. Once teaching, she saw the emotional impact yoga had on clients, and herself, so she earned a Master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology (USM 2005), exploring a deeper understanding of our emotions, and is where her Life Skills Yoga Program began.

Raminderpreet applied her therapeutic yoga approach with cancer patients (2003–present) volunteering with WeSpark Cancer Support Center in Sherman Oaks, CA. and then worked at four cancer centers in Los Angeles (2006-2012). Based on her experience with cancer patients, Raminderpreet Elisa was “grandmothered” as a certified yoga therapist with the International Association of Yoga Therapists (c-IAYT, 2017).

That same year, Raminderpreet earned two film laurels when she premiered her documentary film- Your Brain, Your Body, Your Breath: The Science of Yoga Therapy at the Awareness Festival @LALIve!. This film explores the research, and how yoga therapy is being used as part of a comprehensive, holistic treatment approach, featuring Dr Sat Bir Singh Khalsa, Dr. Mukta Kaur Khalsa, Dr Shanti Shanti Kaur Khalsa, among others.

Practicing Kundalini yoga since 2005, it was in 2016 when she enrolled in Kundalini Yoga teacher training at Yoga West LA under Guru Singh Khalsa, graduating in 2017.

Her training and experience has seen an evolution of her program, reflecting all she has learned over the last 20+ years. Raminderpreet launched her online program in 2022 where she teaches her weekly classes, private sessions, and her signature Life Skills Yoga Program.

What is Kundalini Yoga?

Kundalini Yoga is known as the Yoga of Awareness. How does it differ from other forms of yoga? The emphasis in Kundalini Yoga is on the flow of the kriya—the specific sequence of exercises and meditations (these may include posture, breath, mantra, focus, and/or movement).

Postures are often held for a substantial period of time, to the point where the mind gives way to the body’s wisdom. We begin each yoga set with a mantra of protection called the Adi Mantra (Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo), which links you to the flow of Infinite Consciousness that guides the kundalini energy, a powerful energy of consciousness that lies at the base of the spine.

The synergistic combination of postures, mantras, and meditations combines to put positive pressure on the subconscious mind and allow it to clear limiting beliefs and patterns that are otherwise inaccessible.
