Yoga Nidra: meaning, yogic sleep, balances the nervous system and reduces stress through a simple, guided relaxation while you rest in a nest of props (or perhaps in your bed at home!). Yoga Nidra’s can be of various lengths, with the typical offering at 30-minutes long. Most people fall in and out of sleep, but sometimes you will be awake and alert, or you fall fast asleep right away! Whatever happens is perfect and the beauty of this quiet and gentle practice: it’s about resting and restoring.
I myself do these regularly; sometimes when I need a little pick me up, or when I’m processing through some stuff and just can’t quite get to the root of the issue, or when I didn’t get enough sleep the night before and I have committments that I need to be fully present for because a 30-minute yoga nidra is equal to 2-hours of sleep!
3 ways to get all the benefits of Yoga Nidra with me:
1. purchase 1 or 2 or all 4 of the Yoga Nidra’s I wrote and recorded via iTunes or Amazon: here. Plus there’s an in-depth, 20-minute explanation of the when, where, why, and how of yoga nidra if you purchase the entire album. Enjoy the benefits of this healing tool at anytime, anywhere, as your schedule allows with these MP3s.
2. Attend one of my Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra Workshops and get the added benefit of Restorative Yoga: simple yoga postures held for long periods of time with the gentle assist of a lot of props. This workshop is a 2-hour event that balances our fast paced lifestyles and has an enormous capacity to heal physical and mental symptoms. The price increases for this event on 1/20, so register now for an early bird discount.
3. Attend the Yin/Yang Hot Springs Retreat on March 24-26, 2017 and find solace and fun in my most favorite place in all the world! A place so magical and remote that the highway ends: Surprise Valley Hot Springs Resort. Honor yourself with your own private hot-tub filled with hot spring water from this valley floor and recharge and rebuild with 2 vinyasa yoga practices, yin yoga, ecstatic dance, yoga nidra, restorative yoga, meditation, pranayama (breathing exercises), with time for reflection, massage, advetnure, fishing, hiking, hanging out with new and old friends, and soaking to your heart’s content absorbing all the healing benefits of the mineral enriched waters. This is a gift of divine pleasure that has far reaching effects not only for you, but for those you love and want to serve well: you can only give away what you yourself posess. Come recharge, strengthen, and take delight in this weekend away. Find the full details here .
