Yoga Nidra is like the total opposite of the fast paced, harried life most of us feel pressured to live. It’s a chance to rest, focus on the inner channels and perhaps get to the very root of ourselves through conscious relaxation. Add in all the health benefits like deeper sleep, improved immune function, and better memory then top it off with the fact that 1 hour of yoga nidra is equal to 4 hours of deep sleep and (wo)man, you have got to come to this class!
Basic meditation instruction will be provided for those new to meditation, followed by a 30 minute sit and a short discussion. We have props (blankets, bolsters, blocks) for you to use to create your perfect seat, or feel free to bring your own.

This class moves around the room with walking, skipping, light jogging, bear crawls, sumo lifts and hara pulls - all designed to stimulate blood flow and build pranayama.
