Our Jen is sick with laryngitus- Yoga Nidra will still go on. The amazing Sara Gruss will be leading nidra tonight. Yay!
What is Yoga Nidra?
Is it a pose? Guided imagery? An affirmation? A visualization tool? Mind-body therapy? A relaxation exercise? Yoga Nidra can be all of these things, and more--in essence, it's a highly effective meditation technique that's been around for thousands of years.
Though yoga nidra is translated as "yogic sleep," this method is not really about getting in a good snooze. Guided by your teacher's voice, you identify sensations throughout your body and focus on your breath, while (ideally) remaining in a state of relaxed awareness so that you may release deeply held tensions, some of which you may not even be aware.
You will leave your nidra session feeling nourished restored.
