Yoga Nidra & Gong (A Guided Meditation)
This class combines the complimentary modalities of guided meditation (Yoga Nidra) and sound-based meditation (Gong) to facilitate restorative effects on both mind and body. The meditation begins with Yoga Nidra, to draw awareness inward, promote relaxation, and shift brainwaves to lower states similar to those experienced in sleep. The sound and vibration of the Gong are then introduced to promote gentle energetic shifts and clearing. Benefits include: reduced stress and anxiety, improved sleep, lower blood pressure, improved mood and well-being and a heightened sense of awareness and mindfulness. This class is open to all. Beginners welcome.
Level 1 + Yoga Nidra
The best of both worlds, this class combines a Level 1 yoga practice with Yoga Nidra (guided meditation). The class begins with pranayama (breath work) combined with a series of asana (postures) at a slow to moderate pace with attention to alignment of body, use of props, and explanations of how to come in and out of postures. More challenging variations of postures are offered for the more experienced student. The movement practice prepares you for Yoga Nidra, a guided meditation that brings the practitioner into a deep rest for physical, mental and emotional relaxation.
