Deep Rest: Monthly Yoga Nidra on Zoom

Click HERE to Register for an Online Session

Yoga Nidra is a guided lying-down meditation that induces a state of deep relaxation and peaceful awareness. Yoga Nidra releases cumulative stress from the mind and body by down-regulating inflammation and reducing stress-hormone arousal while harnessing the natural ability for the body and brain to recover and heal with focused rest. Practiced regularly, Yoga Nidra can restore balance to the nervous system, alleviate persistent cycles of anxiety, improve sleep, reduce symptoms of chronic pain and chronic illness, promote healthy brain chemistry, and establish a sense of inner balance, clarity, and self-compassion. Each session begins with a calming breath practice and very gentle tension-relieving stretches that can be done seated on a chair or cushion or by lying down on the floor or on the bed. No prior yoga experience is required and participants who are working with injury, illness, post-operation or other physical limitation will find this class to be highly supportive, accessible, and restorative.

Held on the second Sunday of each month on Zoom. You may register and pay for one specific session or you may purchase a set of Yoga Nidra Passes at a discount which can be used to attend any future Yoga Nidra Zoom session of your choice (these passes do not expire). Patreon Members receive a 25% discount (click HERE to learn about membership). Yoga Nidra sessions are free for Patreon Members who have pledged at the “Bodhisattva” tier.

Beginners are welcome. Build strength at your own pace and honor your body’s needs while exploring what is possible.

Qigong & Guided Meditation on Wednesday Mornings

PURCHASE CLASS PASSES

PURCHASE A MEMBERSHIP

Wednesdays, 10am – 10:45

Qigong means “cultivation of life-energy.” Qigong is the foundation of Tai Chi practice. Instead of a set sequence like Tai Chi, Qigong consists of a wide variety of slow, flowing movements that balance the nervous system and optimize joint mobility, tapping and knocking to circulate blood, lymph, and vital energy, and gentle yoga-like stretches for tension-release. Research demonstrates the effectiveness of qigong in improving physical coordination and balance, mental focus and cognitive health, bone density building, joint stability and mobility, and cardiopulmonary health. Practice of qigong activates the body’s relaxation response, balances the nervous system, increases self-awareness and self-compassion, and reduces symptoms of anxiety and depression.

This class consists of 30-minutes of Qigong practice followed by 15 minutes of guided meditation. The guided meditation practice can be done either seated or lying-down according to your personal preference.
