The monthly Yoga Nidra, Yoga Bliss workshop is a potently relaxing blend of self-massage and gentle movement, ending with Yoga Nidra (Yogic sleep). Self-massage and gentle stretches are empowering and effective methods for decreasing chronic patterns of tension-holding in the body. Less tension = improved circulation, less pain, more oxygen, increased freedom of movement (including the life-giving movement of the breath) and a greater sense of wellbeing.
Yoga Nidra is a systematic process of deepening relaxation– an internal, meditative yoga that happens while your body is completely supported and still. It is said that one hour of Yoga Nidra is more restful than four hours of normal sleep! When we remove stressors, the body relaxes and the immune system can function more efficiently. Vitality and vibrant health are supported. We have more energy to do the things we want to do! Another key element of this practice is the combination of relaxation with Sankalpa. A Sankalpa is a positive statement or intention that invites us to transform our lives, our very beings, as we look inside and ask ourselves the question “what does my heart desire?” This is such an important question to ask, and to ask often. When coupled with relaxation, an intention can sink deep into our subconscious, where the secret to lasting sustainable change resides.
Please join us for this monthly celebration of self-care rituals. Invite a friend. No previous experience necessary. Wear comfortable clothes (think pajamas) that allow you to move and breathe freely. You will need a blanket or two, a light eye covering of soft fabric (scarfs or sleeves work well), some pillows or bolsters, and a firm but comfortable surface to lie on.
Yoga Nidra, Yoga Bliss usually takes place on the 2nd Sunday of the month.
Dates: June 14th, July 12th, August 9th, September 13th, October 25th, November 15th, and December 13th, 2020.
Time: 12:15pm – 2pm
Location: Live Streamed
Cancellation Policy: Refunds of 90% up to five days prior to workshop. No refunds allowable after that time.
About the instructor: Tracy Hodgeman
What to expect in Tracy’s classes: Tracy’s weekly Phinney Ridge, West Seattle, and Capitol Hill classes are laced with humor, anatomy references, therapeutic movement, self massage, and traditional yoga poses. She emphasizes breath, stability/sustainability, and down regulating the nervous system. All of Tracy’s classes start with a call for requests, from which she co-creates a class on the spot based on what she hears and sees in the room. The last Friday of every month in Phinney, the 9-10:15am class ends with a 30 minute Nidra. The last Thursday of every month in West Seattle, the 5:45-7pm class is restorative.
