Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra or yogic sleep brings us into a deep state of consciousness that goes beyond the sleep state to a higher state of awareness. In this healing state we can access our higher knowledge within, and let go of mental processing, where we are frequently judging and evaluating the external world. Yoga Nidra is thought to help us heal from anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and insomnia, and even heal from disease. We will begin with a cooling and slow movement practice, and then transition into the Yoga Nidra guidance.

What to wear and bring: comfortable clothing, small blanket, and eye pillow if you have one.

Summer Solstice: Yin and Sound Bath

Summer Solstice: Yin and Sound Bath

In this workshop we will use our Yin practice to draw upon the energetic principals outlined in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and celebrate the outward expansion and fullness of summer. The summer solstice marks the longest day of the year and our transition into more daylight, warmer temperatures and in our bodies a feeling of expansiveness and outward movement. We seek out community and connection in the summer, all of which is guided by the energy of the heart. A healthy heart guides us into healthy relationships.

The summer season is represented by the element of fire, which when in balance is generative and transformative. When out of balance, we may feel burned out and overwhelmed and this can manifest in the body/mind as inflammation, nervousness and overstimulation.
