Yoga Nidra, Yoga Bliss Workshop with Tracy Hodgeman
Aug 12, 2018 @ 12:15 pm - 2:00 pm
An event every month that begins at 12:15 pm on day Second of the month, repeating until Jan 13, 2019
The Yoga Nidra, Yoga Bliss workshop is a potent blend of 3 complementary self-care techniques: self-massage, pranayama, and Yoga Nidra (Yogic sleep). Self-massage is an empowering and effective tool that decreases tension and increases circulation. Pranayama uses slow, mindful breathing to calm the nervous system and settle the mind. Yoga Nidra is a systematic process of deepening relaxation– an internal, meditative yoga that happens while your body is completely still. It is said that one hour of Yoga Nidra is more restful than 4 hours of normal sleep! When we remove stressors, the body relaxes and the immune system functions more efficiently. Vitality and vibrant health are restored. 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.
Please join us for this monthly celebration of Self care rituals. Bring a friend. No previous experience necessary. Wear comfortable clothes (think pajamas) and leave the belts and bras behind. We have a limited amount of blankets, mats, and eye pillows available at the studio, if you have your own, bring them.
- Yoga Nidra Yoga Bliss takes place on the 2nd Sunday of the month.
