Therapeutic Yoga Nidra: Healing From Within
with Courtney Squire
Sunday May 5, 4-5:30pm
$12 sliding scale
This class offers a unique approach designed to mobilize blocked energies in the body and promote overall vitality. Using a combination of breathing exercises, gentle movement, and prop-supported poses, students will learn how to rest with and release tension in a gentle manner so that energy can flow more freely along the meridians (energy pathways). We will seal in this deep opening with Yoga Nidra- a deeply restorative ancient meditation practice- where all you have to do is lie down, get comfortable, and follow the instructor’s guidance. Yoga Nidra uses a series of techniques to consciously enter into a sleep-like state where restoration of our body systems and rejuvenation of our own internal healing powers can take place effortlessly.
In this class, we will use breath, attention and imagery to engage the mind and bring specific body parts into complete relaxation, activating marma points (potent energy centers) and releasing blockages so that energy may flow more freely along the meridians and accelerate healing from within.
This is an all-levels class, no previous yoga or meditation experience needed.
