Yoga Nidra and Restorative Yoga
Yoga Nidra is body-centered form of meditation that can be practiced for many reasons: to deeply relax and release stress; to promote healing of the body-mind and to rediscover a greater sense of wholeness and balance that is naturally ours. This method of guided self-inquiry is usually practiced in a comfortable lying down position, in which participants are guided into the deepest levels of relaxation and meditation. The Yoga Nidra portion will be approximately 30-45 minutes in duration. In preparation for the practice we will do restorative poses to align our bodies for relaxation. Yoga Nidra has helped countless people to release chronic patterns of stress, to boost immune systems and overall health, to sleep better, and to lead more content lives. This class would be a great addition to any yoga practice. Enrollment is limited, please register early to secure a space. Everyone at any level is welcome.
