Yoga Nidra

Receive deep rest and restoration in this extremely healing practice of yogic sleep.  In this session you will be guided through a detailed meditation that will allow your mind and body to slip into a deep state of relaxation.  In yoga nidra, the brain switches from beta to alpha waves, signaling the transition from activity to meditation resulting in a deeply restorative practice. 

What to expect:

This is a fully guided practice and no experience is necessary.
We practice some gentle stretching prior to the yoga nidra practice - poses are accessible to all.
Participants should be to get down to the floor to rest.
Yoga nidra is practiced lying on a yoga mat (we provide bolsters for under the knees to relieve low back tension, and an extra blanket if needed for cushioning and warmth, or as a pillow). Participants may also lie on their side if pregnant or if lying flat is not comfortable.

 

What to wear/bring:

Wear comfortable clothes for relaxation.
During deep relaxation participants body temperature often lowers so you may wish to wear socks and a sweater.
Blankets will be provided for comfort, however you may wish to bring an extra blanket or pillow to make sure you stay warm and comfortable.
If you have a yoga mat please bring it with you. Studio mats are available to rent ($2) if required, and a selection of mats available for purchase if preferred.
