Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep, is a meditation practice that involves finding a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping while in a laying down position. Think of it as almost hypnosis. Your teacher will be guiding you through a specific serious of body scans to help prepare your body and mind for deep rest. It is often said that 1-hour of Yoga Nidra is as restorative as 4 hours of sleep! Yoga Nidra has been shown to improve sleep quality, help with insomnia, ease headaches and migraines, improve immune function, decrease anxiety and depression, decrease pain, lower blood pressure, improve symptoms associated with diabetes, regulate hormones, increase cell repair and regeneration, and improve mood, amongst a variety of other health benefits.
Sound bath meditation is a unique style of meditation in which requires little to no effort or focus on anything at all -- the sound waves coming from the singing bowls do all of the work for you, slowing your brain waves to reach deep meditative and even sleep states. Sound healing is a non-invasive, ancient and newly re-emerging holistic therapy used to treat physical, mental, and emotional dis-ease of all types. You will spend the duration of the class lying in a comfortable position, typically on your back, so we highly encourage you to come ready to be cozy and if you have an eye pillow bring it with, and anything else that will help to make it easier for you to relax.
No yoga or meditation experience required.
