Yoga Nidra

Relax. Renew. Rejuvenate. In this series students will learn breathing techniques, hand mudras, gentle stretches and yoga postures to help calm body and mind. Each class will end with a long, guided deep relaxation known as Yoga Nidra. In the practice of Yoga Nidra, participants are gently led from awareness of the physical body through the breath, the senses and the conscious and unconscious mind, with complete rest and rejuvenation as the end result. One often feels physically relaxed, emotionally balanced and spiritually aware after a Yoga Nidra session. In our first class we will spend some time on protocol and how to best prepare for Yoga Nidra; inspirational readings and quotes will be part of every class. Beginners are welcome and encouraged to attend.

This course will be offered on Mondays, 6:00pm – 7:30pm, October 19th through November 16th. This is a live virtual class held via Zoom. The meeting link will be sent in your registration confirmation email.
