Yoga Nidra means “yogic sleep” or conscious sleeping. The Yoga Nidra process is part of the Tantric tradition, and is developed from an ancient practice called Nyasa. Nyasa means “to place,” and in the context of Yoga Nidra, it involves placing the awareness in different parts of the body.
Complete relaxation is often blocked by a busy brain, the process of Yoga Nidra systematically engages the brain at the levels of the subconscious and unconscious, reducing or eliminating habitual thought patterns. As these patterns are released greater health and well-being can be established.
Yoga Nidra is a body centered form of meditation that promotes deep relaxation, stress release and healing.
Friday 4 -5 pm /$10 per session
Summer Dates: July 14 (cancelled) and 28, August 4 and 18, September 1
