Everything on the earth
in between and above
Is arising from one effulgent source.
If my thoughts, words and deeds
reflected this complete understanding of unity,
I would be the peace I am seeking in this moment.

- Gayatri Mantra

Yoga Nidra is an ancient guided meditative inquiry or also called a guided mindfulness practice.  The practitioner is invited to find a very comfortable restorative position and simply follow the words of the facilitator. 

Yoga Nidra takes us on a guided journey through all dimensions of our being, the 5 koshas/bodies:  the physical body, the breath, the mind and emotions, the wisdom and deep knowing that abides in all of us, and bliss or the state of Being. 

Studies have shown that Yoga Nidra elicits brain waves at each stage: it  takes us from the alpha waves of wakefulness into theta and delta waves,  where creativity, problem solving, healing and deep states of conscious rest are to be found.

Studies have also shown that the practice of Yoga Nidra can improve sleep as well as improve pain management, memory and aid in the treatment of PTSD. 

Not unlike meditation, Yoga Nidra is an excellent self-regulation practice, i.e. it increases our ability to regulate our inner states, feelings and emotions as a response to outer circumstance.  Our tolerance toward change increases and our resistance and reactivity decreases. 

Join us to discover the benefits of this practice!

Together we will:

  • Take a few minutes to move the body and let go of surface tensions
  • Discuss different aspects of Yoga Nidra in its historical, scientific, and practical applications.
  • Inquire into our own experience through journaling
  • Enjoy the deeply healing and relaxing effects of this popular practice
  • Also, each class will be recorded and sent to you
  • Note:  if you aren't able to take the zoom live classes, you can pace your own learning with the zoom recordings.
