Yoga Nidra at the NC Arboretum

REGISTER HERE

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

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.
