Yoga Nidra

Friday, December 13, 2019

7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Cost: $25 in advance, $30 at the door

Yoga nidra is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world. Yoga nidra promotes deep rest and relaxation that isn't found in your average mediation practice. Yoga nidra offers a space to explore what you need in the moment, as well as an opportunity to work on releasing long-held emotions.

In the yoga nidra class, we will have a short practice, followed by meditative rest.
