Yoga Nidra Meditation Workshop

Yoga Nidra Meditation Workshop

 

Yoga Nidra or "yoga sleep" as it is also known, is a deeper meditation tactic used by many to assist in relaxation of the mind. Yoga Nidra has been used recently by the military even for soldiers who have PTSD. Yoga Nidra is thought to balance the two hemispheres of the brain through the space in the mind that is between the conscious and subconscious. This stage of brain pattern waves or Alpha stage is determined by sleep scientists to be the time when the mind becomes very relaxed and receptive to suggestions such as in hypnosis.

Yoga instructors will learn how to guide their classes through a Yoga Nidra Meditation session. Instructors will practice constructing their own Yoga Nidra outlines.

Yoga instructors will receive a handout of the materials and will be led through a nidra session towards the end of class.

Yin Yoga Flow Fundamentals

Saturday, February 01st, 2020, $45. Registration opens in January!

Yin Yoga Fundamentals

 

In this course yogis will add to their skill set by learning and practicing the fundamentals of Yin Yoga. Yin Yoga differs from other traditional forms of Hatha Yoga in that it focuses on opening the body through deep stretching intended to deliver circulation to the areas of the body being lengthened. Yin Yoga stretches out the ligaments and fascia of the body to lubricate the joints, increase the health of the muscles and deliver fresh oxygen and blood throughout the body. Yin Yoga can increase flexibility and mental stamina while allowing the mind to intensely focus to a point of singularity within an asana.

This course is open to the public yet it is anticipated that each individual has a solid yoga practice and/or foundation of the asanas.

Each participant will receive a handout of the printed material discussed in class.

Past Workshops


Bhakti Meditation Workshop: "Sowing the Seeds of Love"

Anahata Chakra

Bhakti Yoga is the yoga of love and devotion. The word Bhakti comes from the Sanskrit root word "bhaj" meaning "to partake", "to belong" and also "faith, love, and to devote oneself spiritually to a practice or deity".

 

In this Bhakti workshop we will be focusing in on the Anahata Chakra (4th chakra; heart chakra). The Anahata Chakra is green in color and relates to unconditional love, self-healing, and joy.

 

Spring is upon us and this is the perfect time to begin sowing the seeds of personal growth and development with love for oneself so that we may be of service to others in our life. We will begin by clearing out "debris" through our first 3 chakras in order to clear a path to the heart chakra. We will accomplish this through specific asanas (poses) meditations, kriyas, mudras (hand gestures), mantras (chanting/singing) and pranayama (breath).

 

Through these movements and sounds we will bring intentional energy to our heart chakra so that we may begin growing a loving garden for 2018! We will end the class with a Yoga Nidra Savasana.
