This meditation is a little different than a typical guided meditation. We are bombarded daily with excessive stimulation (smartphones, computers, the media, and life in general) and it clashes with our natural rhythms. This can cause us to be under-rested and then have to down cup after cup of coffee to keep us “alive” through the day.
This session is a meditation and conscious relaxation practice that is intended to induce total physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. It is said that its restorative nature for just one hour is the same as four hours of regular sleep. We will move the mind from inner chatter to calm peace, so you can move into deep rest when you return home.
We’ll begin with an intention, a body scan, breath awareness, and return from the meditation, ready for a good night’s sleep.
This is also called Yoga Nidra, but it not yoga in the sense of doing poses. This is a complete relaxation of the body and mind while lying down.
You can bring your own mat, pillow, eye pillow and blanket, or use our mats, pillows and eye pillows. (45-60 minutes)
Aside from being relaxing, restorative and restful, studies have shown that yoga nidra can also:
- Ease insomnia
- Decrease anxiety
- Alleviate stress
- Reduce PTSD, chronic pain and chemical dependency
- Heighten awareness and focus
- Transform negative habits, behaviors and ways of thinking
- Foster feelings of peace, calm, and clarity
It is best to arrive 5-10 minutes early for our events so we can start on time and not have the session interrupted.
This session takes place on Tuesdays at 7:30 pm.
