About the event

Yoga  Nidra (sometimes called yogic sleep) is a very old form of yoga that  allows one to achieve a state “being” between waking and sleeping,  somewhat like the place that feels like "going-to-sleep”. In this state  the body is completely relaxed and by following verbal guidance you will  become increasingly aware of your inner world, your “body mind”.

When practicing Yoga Nidra you remain in a state of light “withdrawn awareness” as the sense of hearing stays connected and responsive  to the instructions. Yoga Nidra is among the deepest possible states of  relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness. The practice is  easy to do, with the only possible negative outcome being falling to  sleep!

At  the root of all healing is our core relationship with self. Practicing  Yoga Nidra deepens and strengthens this relationship and increases our self awareness on all levels.

This  is the powerful practice of conscious rest that systematically relaxes  and unwinds physical, emotional, and mental tensions. When we sleep, we  often continue to hold onto stress and sometimes wake up still feeling  tired and overwhelmed. Yoga Nidra helps to break down these patterns  through guided relaxation techniques, breath awareness, and meditation  to reach resting states usually only experienced in the deepest states  of sleep. The practice also holds the potential to turn your  wholehearted desires into reality that will create positive ripple  effects throughout your work-home- and personal-life.

Yoga Nidra has been shown to: decrease stress, anxiety, fear, and depression. decrease insomnia and sleep disturbances. improve interpersonal relations. increase confidence and joy. promote a greater sense of peace and wellbeing. True healing begins when the body is at rest.

Come as you are. This class is open to all levels. No prior yoga or meditation experience needed.

We  will be sitting and lying on the floor so please bring your own yoga  mat. Yoga blocks and blankets are available but feel free to bring  additional pillows, blankets, or cushions, as desired. It is recommended  to not eat a large meal before & empty your bladder prior to class.

What you’ll need: Blanket, pillow or towel for your comfort Eye Pillow (optional) Notebook/Journal (optional) Bring an open mind & heart

Facilitated  by Leslie Rowans, Certified Reflexologist, Hypnotherapist, Reiki Master  Teacher, a Yoga Nidra Practitioner, and she is a Certified Facilitator  of The Resilience Toolkit™.
