Level 1 + Yoga Nidra
We like to think of this as the "best of both worlds."This is a 60 minute class that combines a Level 1 yoga practice with Yoga Nidra (Conscious Sleep/deep guided meditation). All levels are welcome.In the first part of the class, you are led through a series of postures (asanas) and breath work (pranayama) in a manner where lots of instruction is given, and the pace is moderate. More challenging variations of postures are offered, but absolutely are NOT required. This movement prepares you for. . .In the second part of the class, you are guided through a Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra is a profound, deceptively simple and scientifically based tool for physical, mental and emotional relaxation. Through the use of specific guided visualizations the practitioner is able to enter a state of deep rest and penetrate the otherwise inaccessible recesses of the mind.
