Monthly Yoga Nidra with Rainey
Apr 28, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm| $18
Yoga Nidra (yoga sleep) is a nourishing practice designed to cultivate the resiliency of your nervous system and offer deep relaxation to all levels of your being. Class opens with gentle fluid movement and concludes with a long guided relaxation.
The practice of Yoga Nidra is an ancient and sacred way of cultivating deep relaxation and healing for our nervous system. It is designed to melt tension on all levels and help us access our most creative and authentic self by removing our habitual stress patterns. Regular sleep doesn’t resolve all our tension but by actively participating in the process of Yoga Nidra relaxation can settle into all layers of your being. The Process is simple…you lie down for 20-30 minutes and allow yourself to be guided through a systematic relaxation process. Yoga Nidra has been used to manage stress, insomnia, anxiety and many other issues.
Dates & Time: Sundays, 4/28, 5/26 @5:30-7pm
About the instructor: Rainey
Rainey attended her first yoga class in High School. The hatha yoga with seated meditation allowed her to connect internally to a deeper sense of Self and be more present with the world. This momentous experience planted a seed that was watered gently throughout college in various experiences of yoga, movement and nature. It came into full bloom in the early 90s, when Rainey committed herself to a yoga practice while living in Crested Butte, Colorado.
Between adventures in nature and explorations of bodily movement and alignment, Rainey’s passion and dedication to the potency of bringing full sensory awareness to every moment of life was born. After moving to Seattle in 1996 and studying, training and apprenticing in the yoga tradition with Theresa Elliot, Kathryn Payne, Denise Benitez and John Friend, Rainey began teaching in 2000. She was certified in Anusara yoga in 2003. At this time, Rainey also began meditating in the Buddhist tradition of vipassana, deeply influenced by Pema Chodron and Phillip Moffitt.
