Intro to Yoga Nidra with Emily 
Saturday, May 6th, 1:30pm-3:00pm


Yoga Nidra, also known as "Dream Yoga" or "Psychic Sleep" is a transformative yoga practice that reduces stress and anxiety. Class begins with 30 minutes of light restorative yoga postures to help prepare the body for a 30 minute guided meditation that is practiced lying down in savasana.

Yoga Nidra is ultimately the practice of our 5th limb of Yoga, Pratyahara, or the "withdrawal of the senses". The meditation is of 2 parts, the first being the rotation of consciousness through the major parts of the body, which relaxes and grounds the practitioner, and then a guided imagery, where then the mind is observed.

The practice of Yoga Nidra has scientifically proven to calm the nervous system, release negative thought patters and emotions, and play a major aid in PTSD, depression, insomnia, anxiety, and chemical dependency.

This class is all levels and no yoga or meditation experience is necessary. $25

Back Bending Workshop with Alyssa
Saturday, June 17th, 1:00pm-3:00pm


Every body is different, and so is every spine. Curious about how to unlock your individual anatomy for a deeper and safer bend? Bending backwards can help relieve back pain, redistribute back strength and release carthartic magic into your yoga practice.

This 2 hr workshop will prepare you to safely stretch and stabilize your spine. With hip opening and shoulder mobility work, we will work on healthy gateways to deeper spinal extension in classic back bending postures like camel, cobra and wheel. We will access abdominal strengthening to balance the spine, and use fluid movements and to create flexibility in ease in the energy body. Open to yoga students of all levels of experience and styles of practice who want to gain more mobility and awareness.
