Healing Darkness: A Yoga Nidra Workshop

Saturday November 3, 2018 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Join Fedora for a deeply healing Yin and Yoga Nidra workshop where you’ll honor the darkness and unknown and celebrate the healing powers of silence and stillness. We’ll begin the class with one hour of a soothing Yin Yoga practice, a restorative style of yoga that uses long-held, passive poses to nourish the connective tissues in the body, promoting greater physical flexibility, organ health and peace of mind. Poses will be held from 2-7 minutes to support rest and restoration. We will then move into an iRest Yoga Nidra, also known as ‘yogic sleep’, a deep relaxation practice that works directly on the energetic body inducing a state of wakeful calm and deep rest. iRest provides you with tools to help you find stillness, release stress, increase resiliency, improve your interpersonal relationships and provide you with greater mastery and control in your life. All Experience Levels are welcome. Wear warm, comfortable layers.
