About the Event
This signature workshop is offered as a Spring Detox that includes the practice of Pranayama, Vinyasa Flow, Restorative Yoga, and a Yoga Nidra (see description below). This 90-minute workshop is designed for advanced-beginner and intermediate students with foundational yoga skills. The vinyasa flow aims to teach the coordination of movement and breath, increase joint mobility, and boost circulation for detoxing. When one works to let go of tension and allow energy flow, one will truly feel union of the body, mind, and breath (spirit). It is through this awareness and a vigorous flow that one comes to manage the “vrittis” or chatters in the mind. Following an energetic and empowering vinyasa practice, a sweet Restorative yoga sequence will invite in sense withdrawal and deep surrender. You will be held by a combination of props and gentle hands-on guidance to facilitate a deeper relaxation response and transition into a special Yoga Nidra practice.
Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation technique practiced lying down in savasana. The practice elicits a state between being awake and being asleep, known as the Hypnagogic state. This powerful state on the threshold of sleep allows that body to enter a deep state of relaxation and can be used to many purposes that include releasing memories locked in the subconscious and unconscious and creating an expanded state of consciousness. During Yoga Nidra, one is guided to enter into deeper states of sleep and still maintain awareness. The more we are able to maintain awareness, the more we can integrate the conscious, subconscious and unconscious mind.
Additional benefits of Yoga Nidra:
· Helps to open up the deeper phases of the mind. Release memories of habits that we can not change with the intellectual mind and helps to change our undesired patterning.
· Can be used to replace sleep or to fall sleep. Twenty to thirty minute is often compared to four hours of sleep.
· Improves concentration-A relaxed mind is better able to focus.
· Increases visualization and creativity-A relaxed mind can access solutions that lie in the within. Visualization builds memory, vision and open-mindedness and intuition.
· Releases hormones that are associated with pain reduction.
