Restorative Yoga Nidra w/ Janet

Yoga Nidra Grass Valley

Restorative Yoga Nidra Workshop
May 10, 2019
4:30-6:00 pm
w/ Janet Rankin
Cost: $17

Restorative Yoga is where all yoga postures are fully supported with the use of blankets, bolsters, blocks and straps to create a sense of ease, well being and calmness. Each posture is selected for its ability to quiet the mind and rest the entire body giving you a deep rejuvenating experience. Restorative yoga can be practiced by everyone, regardless of age or experience, and can be extremely beneficial: To quiet the mind ~ Deeply relax the body ~ Allow healing to occur ~ To balance the extraordinary stresses of life.

Yoga Nidra is the art of conscious deep relaxation. During the practice, the body is still, but the mind is awake as an active participant in the relaxation process known as “yoga sleep”. In this relaxation, all burdens melt away as you attain a blissful state of awareness much more rejuvenating than ordinary sleep. It is a powerful healing practice for body, mind, and consciousness. It restores the proper flow of energy throughout the body and mind, allowing the systems of the body to function properly.
