Yin-Yoga-Nidra

$57

with Mary Schwoerer

Calendar Current session started May 7, 2022 at 9 am
1 additional session on Jun 4, 2022

In this class, you will experience 40 minutes of gentle asanas & holding acpoints and 20 minutes of deep, restful relaxation. 

YIN-Yoga- Nidra reduces pain. This unique class focuses on unwinding tension in the body & mind. Yin Yoga is about stretching and applying gentle pressure to certain tissues. Longer held postures support your body in deep rest that restores balance & stimulates deep healing. This class allows time for muscles to relax, joints to open & fascia to release long held tensions. In addition, we hold acupoints to bring balance & ease of flow to mind/body.

Yoga Nidra literally means “yogic sleep”. This ancient technique uses guided meditations to bring you into deep states of conscious relaxation. Yoga Nidra is an effective method for relieving stress & easing anxiety. It is a systematic practice of moving awareness from our external world to the inner world; allowing the body & mind to restore, rest & heal deeply. Yoga Nidra is done lying down in stillness while Mary guides you into bliss.

Wear comfortable clothing & bring your pillows, eye pillow, mat & blanket for a restorative experience you will delight in - all in the comfort of your home. You will be sent a ZOOM link to attend virtually.

Although there are many ways to meditate and many different forms of meditation, they all share the characteristic of intentionally training a person's attention and concentration. Meditation practices are used by diverse cultures, are rooted in the traditions of the great religions, and have been practiced for thousands of years to promote healing. Evidence of meditation's health effects has been well documented: the practice offers improvement in the symptoms of various disease conditions in addition to the experience of a deeper spiritual connection.

The outcome of this certificate is for the learner to describe the types and practices of meditation, specific health effects, and the practice of mindfulness meditation. (8 contact hours)
