Yoga Nidra – February 10 – Womanspace

Yoga Nidra
Saturday, February 10, 2018 10:00am-11:30am

Learn this practice of self-inquiry.  Yoga Nidra is an integrative practice as it addresses both psychological and physical issues such as stress, trauma, PTSD, insomnia, and pain in your body and mind. And it’s also restorative because it helps you recover/restore your inner resources of joy, peace, and well-being which enable you to feel connected to yourself and all of life.
If you’ve been curious about Yoga Nidra, come experience it for yourself!
Yoga Nidra is a systematic method of inducing complete physical,
mental, and emotional relaxation. In Yoga Nidra, the consciousness is
in a state between waking and sleep.  It is during this band of awareness, characterized by Alpha (brain) waves, where deep and progressive relaxation happens and muscular, mental, emotional, and postural tensions are
released.
Open to all levels.

Yoga Nidra means Yogic Sleep; a state of conscious, deep sleep where we learn to relax consciously. Yoga Nidra is deep relaxation with an inner state of awareness. In Yoga Nidra, the body, mind, and intellect are completely relaxed and the practitioner appears to be sleeping. In the state of Yoga Nidra, however, the consciousness functions at a deeper level and the subconscious and the unconscious realms of the mind are more open. Yoga Nidra is a very deep form of relaxation and has been found to reduce stress, tension, and anxiety; is beneficial
for insomnia and to calm symptoms of chronic pain, headaches, depression, high blood pressure, heart disease, autoimmune disease,
helps to balance the Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Nervous Systems –
balancing the left and right hemispheres of the brain, and has been shown to help those in recovery from addiction. Yoga Nidra calms and clears the mind and has the potential to heal psychological wounds, provides emotional healing, and restores our body senses and mind to their natural functions. It is said that 1 hour of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to 4 hours of sleep!

Open to all. Please bring a yoga mat, blanket, small blanket or very small pillow for underneath the head, and dress in layers as your body temperature will lower.

Yoga for the Feet Workshop

Yoga for the Feet Workshop

Yoga for the Feet Workshop

If you’ve ever suffered from sudden and frequent, unrelenting foot cramps, inflamed bunions, planter fasciitis, or just years of stuffing your feet into shoes weakening them, you know what it’s like to have foot pain – it affects everything else. Our feet have a big job and it’s important that we take care of them.

Soothe your tired feet! In this workshop, you  will learn how to strengthen your feet, ease foot pain, and improve overall foot health!  We will be practicing postures that focus on building a strong foundation, learning techniques to ease cramping and foot pain, discuss and learn structure in anatomy of the foot, learning and understanding of basic foot and ankle movements, and learning how to better take care of our feet on and off the mat.
When you treat foot problems with Yoga, you end up treating back pain, hip pain, neck pain, and all kinds of structural problems.
In addition to your yoga mat, water, and any yoga props you have, please bring a tennis ball and a journal or notebook to write in. A foundational knowledge and experience in yoga is helpful but not necessary. Open to all.

Restorative/Yin Yoga for Stress Management

Saturday, June 17th, 10:00 am – 11:30 am, at Nspired Yoga
10:00am – 11:30am
Join us for this healing and nurturing restorative yoga practice.  Release stress, alleviate anxiety, reflect and redirect.
A restorative yoga sequence typically involves 5 or 6 postures supported by props (bolsters, blocks, blankets, etc…) that allow you to completely relax and rest.  Each held for 3-5 minutes or more, restorative postures include light twists, seated forward folds, and gentle backbends.
Step away from the busyness of your day and your mind and go inward.
