Yoga Nidra with Jen Mayotte, RYT-200  

Friday, November 30th from 6:30-7:30 p.m. $25.00  Space will be limited to 8 students.

Are you someone seeking a true sense of relief from the everyday tensions, anxieties and stresses of life? Who isn’t? Are you interested in the effects of meditation but just can’t seem to find a way to practice that serves you, physically or emotionally?

Have you ever heard of Yoga Nidra? It’s an incredible, approachable, yummy, nourishing, ancient yogic practice that all of us can and should access on our journey of yoga.

In this workshop, we will spend half of our time flowing through a gentle asana (poses) and pranayama (breath) practice. This will prepare the body for the wonder of Yoga Nidra. For the second half of class, we will cradle ourselves with props and blankets, setting up a super-comfy restorative shape so the body and mind can fully release. From there, we will be guided into the Yoga Nidra practice… a “yogic sleep”. Practitioners say that Yoga Nidra often brings immediate benefits, such as dramatically reduced stress, deeper sleep, emotional release, and powerful self-connection. It can, and will, engender a profound sense of joy and well-being.

End your workweek and take a break from holiday planning with an evening of relaxation and self-care. This workshop will consist of several restorative yoga poses designed to release tension from mind and body. Vicki Bannister, RYT-200 will lead a 90-minute restorative practice. During the class, licensed Massage Therapist & RYT-500, Courtney Lewis will offer massage with essential oils.
