Monthly Yoga Nidra: Deep Relaxation Workshops


Yoga Nidra is a practice that ANYONE can do; it does not require physical exertion. It is a guided lying-down meditation that induces full-body relaxation and strong states of awareness. This 2-hour session begins with gentle tension-relieving stretches and resting poses, leading up to a 45-minute Yoga Nidra practice. The various elements of the workshop, taken together and practiced regularly, will improve sleep and memory, relieve anxiety and fatigue, and make up a sophisticated set of mind-body tools to generate greater calm and clarity in navigating the storms of life. Cost is $20 (discounted for monthly members of The Shift & Weaverville Yoga). Registration in advance is preferred. 1st Sundays in Weaverville and final Sundays in Hendersonville, unless otherwise noted. Special dates at the North Carolina Arboretum.

Unwind & Renew: A Mind-Body Wellness Retreat at the North Carolina Arboretum


Like painting or playing an instrument, releasing cumulative stress is a skill that can be honed through practice. This weekend retreat is an immersion into gentle mind-body practices to release muscular tension, calm the nervous system, digest emotional distress, and de-clutter the mind. Expect very gentle stretching and breath-based movement, guided progressive relaxations, personal journaling, mindful group sharing, and indoor/outdoor contemplative practices. Excerpts from the speeches of Martin Luther King Jr. will offer a reflection on the power of practicing care for ourselves as a skillful means to deepen our sensitivity and attentiveness to others and the world. Held at the beautiful Arboretum. Registration opens on December 20th.
Limited to 12 participants. Advance registration required.

Yoga Nidra at the NC Arboretum

Sunday, January 19th, 2-4pm REGISTER

Yoga Nidra is a guided lying-down exercise that induces full-body relaxation and strong states of awareness.  Each session will begin with very gentle tension-relieving stretches for neck, shoulders and low back, followed by reclining “restorative” poses with soothing live music. The session culminates in a 45-minute Yoga Nidra experience. The various elements of the workshop taken together can harness the body’s natural healing processes and reduce anxiety and fatigue. These practices are highly accessible, ideal for beginners and seasoned practitioners alike, and require only an ability to get down onto the floor and back up again unassisted. Seated stretches can be done with the support of a chair if needed.  Mats and other props will be supplied or you may bring your own. Limited to 12 participants. Registering in advance is required. $24 Member / $29 Non-member
