Yoga Nidra (starting Oct 7th)
This is an ongoing class open to all levels of practitioners, no experience is necessary. We will meet up for class, spacing at least 6 feet apart and set up all of our mats and props with masks on.
Once all set up, we will remove masks if desired, and begin the practice. We start with a gentle flow of asanas (poses) and some gentle breathwork both geared toward bringing you to a place of openness and relaxation. We then settle into savasana, lying prone on our backs with propping and begin the guided "meditation."
Students who have practiced Yoga Nidra with me have reported, "A deeper sense of relaxation than they ever have before in their lives, losing all sense of time and even Self."
The Sanskrit word Nidra is broken down into two syllables; "Ni"- meaning nothingness, absence or void, and "Dra"- meaning to draw forth. Nidra can bring you to a higher level of awareness and consciousness, and this can have lasting benefits during your "waking" hours such as reducing anxiety and stress, normalizing sleep patterns, and releasing old patterns of behavior or thought.
On a personal note, Yoga Nidra has literally changed my life. I am so much more grounded, confident and clear since I began my training with Yoga Nidra and I feel humbled to be able to share this ancient practice with you.
Due to the current situation, it is best if you bring your own mat, although we do have mats to share at the hall. IT IS AN IMPERATIVE THAT YOU BRING AT LEAST TWO OF YOUR OWN BLANKETS! Almost any blanket will do, but something similar to a "mexican blanket" or a throw works best. One is for a prop under thighs or possibly a small roll under your neck and the other is to cover you as your metabolism slows way down when practicing and you tend to get cold. Please wear comfortable clothing, socks and layers. FMI, to register, or to ask any questions please email Denyse Robinson at email@example.com
