iRest® Yoga Nidra: Moving into Spring
As we move through these Winter months, it can feel like it's never going to end. Everything can feel more challenging, our lows might feel lower, and anxieties intensified. This may feel particularly true during this pandemic time. Fortunately, the practice of iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation can be a wonderful support during this time. It is a deeply healing practice, calming the nervous system, and helping us to come into a deeper befriending of ourselves, and all of life. Many report a lessening of anxiety, more energy and improved sleep. Please join us for this series, as we move through these colder months and into the Spring.
This online series is open to everyone, whether you are new to the practice, or have been practicing yoga nidra for awhile. Each class includes brief discussion, mindful chair yoga, short “micropractices", and a guided Yoga Nidra session (seated in a chair or lying down). Participants receive handouts and guided recordings to support home practice. The recorded practices are available through Dropbox. Please join us!
