How Living The Dream came to be: Sid began Living The Dream as a Collegiate Football Coach. To further the dream he needed to find a way to heal his body from a fused ankle do to many sports injuries, and release his asthma he had from childhood. Sid began to see that a dream was possible through yoga and healed in every way. As a football coach be began to teach yoga to his football team and still knew there was more to it. Over 20 years of coaching football, teaching yoga and inspiring others Sid found his way and doors began to fly open. lululemon had come to the first “Living The Dream” in Nashville, TN. Lululemon was made aware of Sid’s goal of traveling the world to spread peace, through their ambassador goal bomb program. In January of 2014 lululemon helped Sid begin this dream.

Bhagavan Das is one of the last living cultural icons of the 60′s. As Ram Das’s mentor (author of Be Here Now) he ushered in the New Age Spiritual Movement being the first Kirtan Artist in America. His groundbreaking album “Ah” (1971), produced by Jimi Hendrix’s manager Michael Jeffrey, was the first World Music album from Electric Ladyland. Bhagavan Das has also toured with Allen Ginsberg, opened for the Grateful Dead and sang with Bob Dylan.
Bhagavan Das’s rare and sacred offering to this world is like a singing open heart heralding the Guru’s Grace through the vehicle of Sound.

Release your inner blocks
Healing Breathwork is a tool for healing, and clearing old patterns within ones body. Learn how to use your breath for emotional release, mental clarity, and physical freedom.
Sid’s Healing Breathwork is a powerful approach to self-exploration and healing that integrates insights from modern consciousness research, transpersonal discovery, and spiritual practice. The process itself uses very simple means: it combines natural baby’s breathing with evocative music in a comfortable setting. With the eyes closed and lying on a mat, each person uses their own breath and the music in the room to tap into deeper a consciousness.
This experience is appropriate for everyone and will leave you with clarity, inner peace and connection to yourself.
Sid McNairy will be your lead guide for this session, who has countless hours studying Holotropic and transgressional breathwork under the direct supervision and teachings of Grandmother Morningstar, who was a direct student of founder of holotropic breathwork Stanley Grof’s for years.
Space is limited. Sign up today!
