Monthly Yoga Nidra: Deep Relaxation Workshops

YN7 2

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. Registration in advance is preferred. 1st Sundays in Weaverville and final Sundays in Hendersonville. Upcoming dates:

Sunday, October 29th, 3-5pm at The Shift Hendersonville REGISTER

Sunday, November 5th, 3-5pm at Weaverville Yoga Weaverville REGISTER

Inner Sanctuary – Practices in Radical Self-Acceptance & Fierce Inner Peace



Self-Acceptance, Compassion, Joy, and Equanimity –the “Four Immeasurables” of the Yoga tradition are the foundation of mental health. Recent collaborative efforts between western neuroscience, eastern spiritual traditions, and modern research psychology have yielded sophisticated emotional education and mind-body tools that have the capacity to fundamentally improve the healthy functioning of your nervous system, your brain chemistry, and the neural networks that support resiliency. In this 7-week intensive series, you will master the psychology and practice of each of these qualities, generating an inner sanctuary that is safe, nurturing, resilient and centered in personal insight. All therapeutic, yogic, and mindfulness-based practices utilized in this series are gentle, trauma-sensitive, and accessible to all bodies. Evidence-based research associates these practices with a significant reduction in symptoms associated with anxiety, depression, sleep disturbance and post-traumatic stress. To accommodate participant’s schedules, each session builds on previous content, so that up to 3 sessions can be missed while still absorbing the full content of the series. Lecture notes and instructions for practice are emailed each week.

Thursdays at The Shift Hendersonville, 6:30 – 8:30pm
October 5th – November 16th   REGISTER HERE
Early Bird Registration (by September 21st) $120
