Yoga Nidra is a powerful technique in which you learn to relax consciously. For the deepest relaxation, you remain aware and alert, in a state of dynamic sleep. This can be a challenge, but even if you do fall asleep, you still benefit. You will be guided through a systematic series of physical, mental and emotional relaxation during the hour practice. You may appear to be asleep, but the consciousness is functioning at a deeper level of awareness. Yoga Nidra can help us to develop better memory, increase knowledge and creativity and to transform our nature. It's a lovely practice!
Please feel free to bring your own blanket and pillow(s) (an eye pillow too) - whatever you need to be very comfortable for an hour of complete relaxation and deep rest.

For the 1.5 hour Yoga & Yoga NIdra practice at Body Business, we first practice 30 minutes of gentle Hatha yoga followed by 1 hour of Yoga Nidra, deep relaxation. Cost is $20 for Body Business members, $25 for non-members.
For the 1 hour Yoga Nidra practice at Lakewood Community Center, the entire hour is Yoga Nidra. Cost is $10. You have the option of attending a 1-hour gentle yoga practice prior to Yoga Nidra, cost is $10. For example, if you wanted to practice Yoga and Yoga Nidra, you could attend yoga from 1:15-2:15pm, have a short break, and Yoga Nidra from 2:30-3:30pm.
