Yoga Nidra is a form of guided mindfulness meditation. It is a systematic process for leading the body and mind into receptive states of relaxation and deep presence. Through this process we are able to access inner healing and the pure awareness of being. Yoga Nidra is a powerful tool to help reduce stress, overcome insomnia, solve problems, resolve trauma, and neutralize anxiety, fear, anger and depression. It is a process we can use to explore our life experiences and enter into a deeper connection with all that is.

In this series we use the Integrative Restoration (iRest®) approach to Yoga Nidra. Each class includes brief discussion, mindful chair yoga, short “on the go” practices, and a guided Yoga Nidra session (seated in a chair or lying down). Participants receive handouts and guided recordings to support home practice. The recorded practices are available through Dropbox. Please join us!
