Guided Deep Relaxation
The practice of Guided Deep Relaxation, Yoga Nidra, relaxes the physical body, helps create clarity, increases intuition, clearer thinking, and calmer responses to life's challenges.
As a yoga teacher and yoga therapist, one of the things I see most is that people are in a chronic state of doing. It can be challenging to realize that non-doing is equally as important as doing. Non-doing is a space of consciousness where you are present for what is happening now. Guided Deep Relaxation is a wonderful practice that can help prepare the body and mind for the ultimate space of non-doing.
These sessions begin with mindful gentle movement, which helps to get your energy flowing more fluidly so the physical body can be more comfortable in the stillness that will follow. You will then lay comfortably on your yoga mat (you also have the option to sit in a chair), with as much or as little prop support as you like.
Yoga Nidra means yogic sleep. It is deeply healing and can improve the nature of your mind, and your physical well-being, it can help restore creativity, and is known to increase the quality of your sleep. One hour of Yoga Nidra equals for hours of sleep. Although it is not recommended to replace sleep with Yoga Nidra.
Join me for this monthly workshop to help create balance in your being.
Wear comfortable clothes as you would for a yoga class. As you rest in stillness the body tends to cool down. I therefore recommend bringing a long sleeve shirt, socks and maybe even a favorite blanket. If you have an eye pillow, bring it as well.
