Autumn Ross
Liscensed Acupuncturist & Yoga Teacher

Autumn is a graduate of Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College of Berkeley and a licensed acupuncturist. She has provided acupuncture to a variety of people through internships at the AIMC Clinic, SF Homeless Prenatal, and the UC Berkeley Sports Medicine Facility. She enjoys the range of use that Traditional Chinese Medicine provides and that it allows her to treat many different people.

As both a student and a teacher of yoga, Autumn strives to offer a space where the discipline of yoga is respected and made available to all bodies. Autumn hopes to provide an opportunity through yoga to explore and experience, to repair and relax. The movement and coordinated use of body, mind and breath is such a greattool of yoga, one that Autumn teaches with a beginner’s mind and joy. This excitement about yoga has driven her to bring it into communities she treasures and that are lacking exposure to a form of yoga that is more familiar and accessible.

Autumn likes to work together with you on the path to wellness and works to make people's health goals accessible and individualized. She combines her training and experience in yoga, breathing exercises, and nutrition with the practice of Chinese medicine to tailor a health plan for each individual. Autumn loves science, both modern and ancient. When she isn't practicing yoga or Chinese medicine, Autumn enjoys doing crossword puzzles, going to the beach, and relaxing with her wife and dog.

Yoga Nidra Workshops!

About Yoga Nidra

"Most people sleep without resolving their tensions. This is termed nidra. Nidra means sleep, no matter what or why, but yoga nidra means sleep after throwing off the burdens. It is of a blissful, higher quality altogether." ~ Swami Satyananda

Yoga Nidra means Yogic Sleep. It is a state of conscious, purposeful Deep Sleep which has been called "sleep that awakens the soul."

In Yoga Nidra, the body, mind and intellect are completely relaxed and one appears to be sleeping. In the state of Yoga Nidra, however, the consciousness functions at a deeper level and the subconscious and unconscious realms of the mind are more open. Yoga nidra is a very deep form of relaxation. it has been found to reduce tension, anxiety, and headaches, even providing relief from PTSD.

Yoga Nidra brings an incredible calmness, quietness and clarity. Yoga Nidra is one of the deepest of all meditations, leading one's awareness to a state of supreme stillness and insight. Traditionally it was used by Yogis to purify the Samskaras, the deep impressions that are the driving force behind Karma, in order to move one towards their true Dharma.

In these workshops, you will be safely guided through relaxing breath work and visualization. Your attention will be brought inward until you reach deep stillness and the silence of conscious Deep Sleep (Prajna), and then slowly and safely brought back to the conscious state.

Heart Opening Yoga Nidra and Forgiveness Workshops

This winter, give yourself the gift of  an invaluable Forgiveness Practice. Together we will practice Yoga Nidra with a Heart Opening focus, letting go of old stuff in order to reach for something new. Holding onto grudges, big or small, can prevent connectedness with others, as we can unconsciously bring anger into each new experience and relationship. Unresolved anger can lead to depression and anxiety, even preventing optimum health by increasing blood pressure and compromising the immune system. 

When we refuse to let go of past hurts, we're actually damaging ourselves. "Resentment is like swallowing poison and expecting the other person to die," is a common sentiment on the subject. We will spend some time revisioning and reperceiving a past injury in a useful way. And to uncomplicated the process, you will be asked to choose a mild and seemingly "small" incident to work with. Oftentimes, these small irritations are representations of larger, repetitive struggles, so when we heal the little ones the larger ones also resolve.

These workshops are FOUR HOURS and there is writing involved. 
Worksheets are provided, but bring your favorite pen and your favorite pillow.
