Yoga Nidra with Rachel Burklund
Mar 30, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm| $25
Yoga Nidra or yogic sleep brings us into a deep state of consciousness that goes beyond the sleep state to a higher state of awareness. In this healing state we can access our higher knowledge within, and let go of mental processing, where we are frequently judging and evaluating the external world. Yoga Nidra is thought to help us heal from anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and insomnia, and even heal from disease. We will begin with a cooling and slow movement practice, and then transition into the Yoga Nidra guidance.
What to wear and bring: comfortable clothing, small blanket, and eye pillow if you have one.

About the instructor: Rachel Burklund
(200 Hour RYT)
Rachel began a yoga practice in 2000 for physical reasons, to become stronger and more flexible, yet after that first class, it created a lasting impression, which eventually evolved into a way of life. Her path has taken her to different styles of yoga, yet what remains
consistent, is a strong desire to go deeper within. Yoga became a way of healing and as she grew physically she also grew spiritually, developing a regular meditation practice.
These passions for seated meditation, and the moving meditation of yoga, eventually lead Rachel to become a yoga teacher.
In 2015, Rachel completed her TT at Shakti Vinyasa Yoga, and shortly after she completed Shakti’s Teacher Mentorship program. She is now participating in Synergy’s Teacher Mentorship program for an advanced Yoga and Ayurveda study.
Rachel combines hatha and vinyasa styles into her yoga classes with an opportunity to settle the mind, connect and expand. Rachel believes that we all have a spiritual knowing within, and in her classes you will be given the chance to grow physically, spiritually and
mentally to unite with your whole self.
