Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra (R)

Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra ® (Yogic Sleep)

April 2nd from 7PM-8PM

Cost $15

What is Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra?

Divine sleep Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation that systematically guides and relaxes you at every level of being including your physical, energetic, mental, emotional, and spiritual layers (called koshas). Through the use of breath awareness, body scanning, healing music and nature imagery, Divine Sleep invites you to become aware of each layer of being without needing to change or fix anything. This is true meditation where there is nothing to do but to ‘notice’-supporting you in feeling empowered and whole just as you are. This contemporary practice is based on ancient yogic wisdom and meditation to make a powerful tool for modern day life.

Practicing Devine Sleep Yoga Nidra

An enjoyable and easy practice, Divine Sleep requires you only to lie down and listen! It is best practiced on a mat or blanket, making sure the body is comfortable, warm, and supported. Sitting in a chair or on the floor is ok, too.

For this workshop, please dress comfortably and bring a blanket or two if you like.
