It brings awareness to the inner processes of the mind: the habitual patterns, the good and bad discursive thinking, the judgment, the filters through which we experience the inner and the outer worlds and realities. This is a Journey into Bliss: releasing thought, stress, tension and drifting into a half sleep state of relaxation. It is a journey through the chakra energy system as every crystal bowl resonates on the notes of one of the energy centers of the body. Also, grounding and centering your being utilizing Tibetan Bowls, Chimes and a gentle steel drum. You are invited to rest, unwind and sink in. Allow the vibration of the sound bath instruments transport you to a deep meditative state. No experience is necessary. No physical effort will be needed so this is accessible to all. This is your opportunity to rest, relax, restore, nourish and receive the healing vibrations throughout your physical and energetic body.

Deep Relaxation with Yoga Nidra

Saturday, 6/22/19 @ 2:15 PM
Sign up here and receive Early Bird Summer Savings. Or payment can be taken the day of at Willow Yoga Studio Summer Savings when you sign up early $15 CLICK HERE (before June 15th) or At the door: $25 for non members and $20 for members Dress comfortably and bring anything that will help you get extra comfy: Blankets, pillows, cushions, etc. Yoga Nidra, the science of deep relaxation. Yoga means โ€œunion.โ€ Nidra means โ€œsleep.โ€ Yoga Nidra is a state between sleep and deep relaxation. It is a systematic method of inducing deep physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. The practice is done while lying down on oneโ€™s back. The eyes are closed and the body made completely comfortable. It involves deep relaxation with inner awareness while I lead a guided session. I will use auto-suggestion cues, visualization, and affirmation to create an environment in which healing can occur. A few of the benefits now being confirmed by the medical field are increased immune function, digestive function, and better sleep. The gifts of Yoga Nidra are the releasing of old habits, fatigue, worry, and stress. Yoga Nidra can be practiced by anyone of any size or shape. This is not a physical exercise but rather a technique for physical rejuvenation, mental relaxation, spiritual growth, and overall wellness. According to yogic thought, unregulated stress is the root of most physical and mental ailments today. The secret of Yoga Nidra (and to better health) lie in its ability to relieve tension and stress at its root and restore a balanced state of mind and a deeply rested body.
