Delve into deep Relaxation, Heal, Rest & Create positive personal change with Yoga Nidra. Gain insight into this ancient practice for imbalances such as stress, anxiety, high blood pressure, chronic fatigue, digestive disorders, insomnia etc. Release tensions & impressions stored in layers (the Koshas) of the mind and body from negative core/self beliefs. Yoga Nidra is a meditative form of very deep relaxation that has a profound effect on the body, mind & emotions.  All you need to do is lay comfortably in savasana on your mat & listen.  Whatever you experience, whether you are awake or asleep, your deepest layers will go through the journey, & as a result, you will benefit in so many ways!  If you’ve been feeling a bit sleep deprived, you will be happy to know a 45 minute Yoga Nidra practice is equal to 3­-4 hours of sleep!

YOGA FOR BEGINNERS

Back by popular demand!  We understand that walking into a studio for the first time can feel … a bit awkward or uncomfortable (we’ve all been there!); however, if you have been considering trying yoga, or coming back to your mat to give it another try, this is the class for you.  Designed just for beginners, we will cap this class to a maximum, to ensure a more intimate practice.  This series of classes will slowly guide you to explore and honor the needs and limitations of YOUR body, while increasing balance, flexibility, focus and muscle tone.  By the end of this 8 week session (but likely before), you will not only feel lighter, looser and freed up in the physical body, but also in the mind.  Together, we will hold and share a space of no judgement, competition, comparing or criticism, but rather acceptance, compassion and self care.

Time:     5:30 – 6:30 pm
