Candlelight Flow with Yoga Nidra
We begin with a soulful open level vinyasa class that builds heat, strength and flexibility while allowing the mind to achieve a deeper meditation, as we synchronize breath with movement, enhanced by the candlelight. Attention is paid to the alignment of the physical form as well as to the subtle energy body (chakras).
The last 20 minutes of class are spent in complete relaxation through Yoga Nidra, a guided meditation practice designed to liberate the body and mind from tension and anxiety. Known as the “wakeful sleep”, one learns how to put the body into sleep while the mind remains fully awake. The brain wave drops into the theta state where deep levels of healing takes place on the emotional, mental, and physical planes.
Class is 75 minutes
All levels are welcome, some vinyasa experience suggested
