“I was so scared to get quiet with myself. I wanted to leave before it started. The teacher asked if I had somewhere I needed to be, if someone was waiting for me… which reminded me that there was no other place that I needed to go… that I am used to running away from myself…. This is transformative yoga. This is the best thing I have ever done in my life!” -MG

Restorative Yoga (longer-held floor poses in comfort and ease), Yoga Nidra (sleeping body, awake mind) and Kriya Yoga radiance meditation will bring into balance subtle life force energies while releasing nervous energy and mental and emotional burdens.

Be expertly-guided to promote self-directed healing and inner peace; plus experience the therapeutic weight of blankets to release trauma comfortably and to promote easy present-moment mindfulness.

Take home breathing skills to retrain and regulate emotions and the bodymind. Centering imagery supports awareness and effective mudras enhance well-being, gently.

This practice can relieve chronic pain and insomnia and supports healthy sleep and healthy digestion.


YOGA FOR INSOMNIA and PAIN RELIEF

 

YOGA NIDRA
The Easiest Yoga of them all! The practice of therapeutic, deep rest.
Friday, December 8
6:30pm -8pm
Yoga Village in Arroyo Grande
In this session, we practice just one pose, Savasana, or “relaxation pose,” while students are guided through a deeply restorative visualization and meditation to retrain the brain and nervous system. This (Yoga Nidra) is the Yoga style used to relieve severe PTSD and other serious mental health issues, chronic pain and insomnia. Accessible to everyone.

Yoga nidra is deep rest which helps to heal trauma, insomnia, feelings of despair and disconnection. Relaxation is made easy in Yoga nidra.

Yoga nidra is an opportunity to be gently guided a place where anxiety does not exist. Master rest.

The Practice:
One Yoga pose, Savasana, tucked in and cozy. Drift in quietude. Find relief from tension. Experience the ease. Yoga nidra is simple magic.
