Discover Yoga Nidra

Wednesdays, March 11th - April 1st
5:45pm - 7:00pm
@ JCA Maine
$60 for members
$75 for non members

Feeling stressed? Discover a new way to relax with Yoga Nidra! 

Practiced lying down, Yoga Nidra is for everybody, regardless of age, fitness level or experience! You will learn how to relax your nervous system, focus your mind, and balance your emotions. This is not a physical exercise but rather a technique for physical rejuvenation, mental relaxation, spiritual growth, and overall wellness.

Each class will include a discussion on the philosophical aspects of the practice, gentle stretching to prepare the body for stillness, and the guided meditation that leads to the state of Yoga Nidra. You will be guided through various breathing, body scanning, and visualization techniques that take you into deep states of relaxation and integration. This series will allow you to dive deep into the practice with new techniques introduced each week and a new video each week so you can practice at home. 

The physical body tends to get cool when lying in stillness for sustained periods of time. Warm cozy clothes help to keep the body comfortable for the duration of the practice. Blankets, bolsters, mats, and blocks will be provided although you are welcome to bring your own blankets, pillows, etc. if you like.

What’s Included:

  • Four 75-minute classes
  • 4 Yoga Nidra recordings
  • Journal

A few of the benefits now being confirmed by science are increased immune function, digestive function, and better sleep. The gifts of Yoga Nidra are the releasing of old habits, fatigue, worry, and stress.

Minimum 4 students, max 8 students. Registration is required.
