In this class we will begin by moving gently, focusing on yoga poses that will help release tension from your body. Then we will settle in for a guided, restorative rest in Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra is the practice of sacred sleep. It takes you into the healing space between wakefulness and sleep. Your body is completely still and asleep, while your mind is awake and conscious of this deep relaxation. After waking, we will have a short discussion about what brain waves. We will learn about which brain waves we use in Yoga Nidra to help bring our awareness beyond the analytical mind (take attention away from the outer world) and into the inner world of thoughts and feelings. In this space we can create lasting change in our beliefs and perceptions about how things are.
