Yoga Nidra means "yogic sleep." It is a state of profound stillness and peace in which the body is in the deepest state of relaxation, yet the mind is wakeful, still and expanded. Practitioners are led through a series of techniques using body, breath, and awareness, resulting in deep physical relaxation, subtler mental states, and eventual stilling of the mind. In this expansive state beyond the restrictions of the mind, old reactive patterns and stresses are effortlessly dissolved. We then consciously use an intention to redirect our energy and steer our life in whatever direction we want to go. This simple practice is usually done lying on the floor.
As old patterns and stresses are released, the practitioner is freed to function in life with greater clarity and inner joy. Through the use of intention, every thought and action begins to be a graceful expression of our life's deepest purpose.
We hope to see you!
