You will be guided to create your personal intentions to amplify the impact of Yoga Nidra. You will also experience a gentle all-levels yoga session before being led into Yoga Nidra, the deeply relaxed state of yogic sleep. This ancient form of meditation brings you into an integrated state in which you tap into the power of Source.  Although deep and profound, the most challenging aspect of this technique  is to not fall asleep.

Attend 1, 2, 3 or ALL Four sessions

Thursday, February 13:  HIP, HIP, HOORAY (Explore hip openers, galore!) In addition to the benefits of improved range of motion, improved circulation, and decreased back pain, opening the hips can create an energetic shift or release as well.

Thursday, February 27:  THE HEART OF THE MATTER  (Low-impact cardio and strengthening) Mindfully raising your heart rate will activate your circulatory and   lymphatic systems to help rid the body of toxins. In addition, torch some calories and reduce stress. Please bring indoor sneakers for this session.
