Sustained periods of community practice are essential for supporting one another in slowing down, listening deeply, refreshing our spirit, and renewing our personal practices. Together we can take a day of quiet respite from the demands of modern life to bring peace to our bodies and minds. Expect periods of seated meditation (on cushion or chair), moving meditation (gentle Yoga & Qi Gong), lying-down progressive-relaxation practice, slow walking in nature, and free time for personal journaling & reflection. Noble silence will be held for most of the day with opportunities for group sharing. All practices are gentle and accessible, such that anyone can participate regardless of prior experience or physical limitation. Tea and snacks will be provided and participants are asked to bring their own lunch. Registration in advance is required. Group size is limited to 10 participants. $65 to register. Sliding scale is available in cases of financial hardship. Contact Jenne with any questions you may have.

PLEASE NOTE: Yoga Nidra now takes place from ***2-4pm*** on Sundays.
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 and Weaverville Yoga). Registration in advance is preferred. 1st Sundays in Weaverville and final Sundays in Hendersonville.

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 assist in getting a good start to the fall season or ease holiday stress. 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
