Enjoy for a profound experience of a meditation practice. Yoga Nidra is a simple guided meditation technique that is practiced while lying down on the floor in a supine position (savasana or corpse pose). While the body is very still and relaxed, the mind is aware as you listen to the voice of the teacher guiding you through the meditation practice. Yoga Nidra means yogic sleep or having a trace of awareness. It is the sleep after throwing off the three basic types of tension which are muscular, emotional and mental tension. The brain goes into the Alpha state or hypnogogic state. Prolonging the Alpha state allows for deep healing on all levels of our being. Research has found that fifteen minutes of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to four hours of sleep. One emerges from the practice of Yoga Nidra feeling fresh, invigorated and inspired. Yoga Nidra can be practiced at any time and place or after a regular yoga class. We will begin with a thirty minute restorative yoga practice followed by one hour of yoga nidra meditation. Experience absolute relaxation and deep self-awareness through the practice of Yoga Nidra. Reminder: Dress warmly, socks, long sleeve shirt or light jacket.
