Full Description

Yoga Nidra is truly one of the untapped treasures of the Yoga tradition, dating back 5000 years.
The Yogis believe it is not just current stresses and traumas that impair our health and well being, but also unresolved emotions from the past that get locked in the tissues and in the sub conscious mind. These stresses represent energy that could be available for our present lives and to move forward toward the manifestation of our highest potential. But due to the accumulated and blocked nature of these traumas our energy is locked in the past and we may not even be aware. Yoga Nidra is yoga’s answer to this dilemma.

Through guided meditation in an extended svasana or corpse ( resting) pose, you will relax through deeper and deeper layers of your psyche, until you are in a state near sleep, but with just a trace of awareness. In this state your are close to the sub conscious and the potential for release of negativity and inner transformation is enormous. This is called the theta brain wave state in which you have the potential to change the course of your life. When in this state we employ a Sam kalpa, or intention/resolve which is planted like a seed into the ripe soil of the sub conscious. Positive change and the manifestation of your Sam Kalpa is inevitable.

This class benefits all levels, from the new yogi to the yogi who practices regularly
“Yoga Nidra has been successful in such settings as Walter Reed Army Medical Center in fostering freedom from stress and trauma and helping to identify and heal destructive tendencies that can otherwise impede the healing process.”
