6:45 PM - 7:45 PM
with Sandra Coyner
Yoga Nidra is an ancient form of deep mediation used to relieve tension and anxiety by promoting profound relaxation. Sometimes referred to as yogic sleep, one could compare it to being in a very long Svasana; but, your conscious awareness will be guided by my voice and your state of relaxation will be much deeper.
Yoga means union and, it is through yoga, that we begin the process of learning who we truly are inside as we become awakened to our inner voice. On the flip side, nidra means deep sleep. Have you ever experienced slowly awakening from a deep sleep yet, at the same time, noticed that part of you is still lingering with the dream? It is a wonderful, drowsy, happy state somewhere between being asleep and being awake with a heightened sense of self-awareness. That is Yoga Nidra.
Swami Jnaneshvara Bharati describes Yoga Nidra in this way:
"In Meditation, you remain in the Waking state of consciousness, and gently focus the mind, while allowing thought patterns, emotions, sensations, and images to arise and go on. However, in Yoga Nidra, you leave the Waking state, go past the Dreaming state, and go to Deep Sleep, yet remain awake."
Please dress comfortably. After brief discussion, asana and pranayama, we will sweetly transition into a half hour of yoga nidra.
