Yoga Nidra, Yoga Bliss with Tracy Hodgeman in West Seattle
Oct 20, 2019 @ 12:15 pm - 2:00 pm| $35
The monthly Yoga Nidra, Yoga Bliss workshop is a potently relaxing combination of self-massage followed by Yoga Nidra (Yogic sleep). Self-massage is an empowering and effective method 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.
Yoga Nidra, Yoga Bliss usually takes place on the 2nd Sunday of the month. Save the date for these upcoming workshops in the monthly series: November 10, December 8, 2019, and January 12, 2020.

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.
