What is yoga nidra and why haven't I heard about it before?
Yoga nidra is often referred to as "yogic sleep," a paradoxical state of being between sleep and consciousness that's conducive to deep emotional and physical healing, rewiring your brain, and self-exploration. Yoga Nidra is gaining popularity because it's an antidote to our modern lifestyles. As a culture, we're always connected, often stressed, and our nervous systems are constantly in a fight-or-flight, sympathetic state. Yoga Nidra is an effective and efficient way to access the "rest and digest" parasympathetic state, which is where healing happens. Yoga nidra will help you rest, restore, de-stress, increase awareness, undo bad habits, and eventually understand your true calling and higher purpose. Through the use of body sensing, breath awareness, guided imagery and other practices, you are systematically guided on a meditation journey through each level of your whole being called the koshas( layers of being). Yoga nidra is accessible to everyone.
In this 90 minute workshop we will first explore asana, set an intention, then settle ourselves in for a guided yoga nidra practice. This workshop is open to all levels of practitioner.
