[Live Streamed] Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra Afternoon Retreat with Christy Fisher
Dec 20, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm| $30
Yoga Nidra is a body and breath-based meditation practice that can take place resting on one’s back, sitting in a chair, or even through slow paced, gentle mindful movement. It has been practiced throughout the world for over 1,000 years. Current research is finding that Yoga Nidra practice supports the present-centered network in the human brain governing processes of resiliency: deep creativity, inspired thinking, pain management, and healing on a cellular level.
In this retreat we will explore:
✓ Gentle yoga movements to unwind tension, increase circulation and support the immune system.
✓ Gentle yet powerful breathwork to reduce stress and support emotional balance
✓ The ancient practice of Yoga Nidra as a powerful tool to facilitate deep relaxation and healing
✓ Time for journaling to integrate and gain clarity
Date & Time: Sunday December 20, 2020. 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
