Oana Lansman, Healing Team

Vedic scholars believe humans are born twice – dvija – we are first born to a mother and a father, and then re-born into the realm of the spirit. Just like a bird first comes as an egg and then breaks out of shell into the real world.

Oana was born and raised in Romania where she completed her finance studies before starting working in Corporate Finance in New York and later on in Canada.

Well into her career her life was re-arranged and transformed after she took her first yoga class. Soon after she committed to a daily practice and found a strong desire to share with others the experiences of physical, mental and spiritual well-being that have come to light on her yoga mat.

Oana started studying Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga in Canada and later on in Carlsbad, CA with Tim Miller, Senior Ashtanga Yoga Teacher. Furthermore she became interested in other yoga systems and went on to study in the Iyengar and Hatha traditions completing over 1000 hours of training.

Through yoga asana Oana was led to meditation, pranayama and Reiki.  She went on to study and practice Vipassana, Mindfulness and Transcendental meditation.

In 2016 Oana became a Certified Ayurvedic Heath Practitioner with the US National Ayurvedic Medical Association.

Yoga Nidra: Deep Relaxation with Oana Lansman

Wednesdays 5:00-6:00pm PDT via Zoom

Yoga Nidra is the practice & art of Yogic Sleepless Sleep. In this class you will be guided through a detailed meditation and visualization that will allow your mind and body to slip into a state of conscious deep relaxation. This is a state of “sleepless sleep” and occurs between waking consciousness and dreaming consciousness. The brain will switch from beta to alpha waves, signaling the transition from activity to deep physical relaxation and withdrawal of the awareness from the external environment.
