Yoga Nidra and Stress Management Workshops

 

Yoga Nidra

Tuesday, May 30th, 6:45 pm – 7:45 pm, at Nspired Yoga
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!

 

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.
