Workshop Details

Experience five days of deep restoration, reflection and intention. Using the profound practice of Yoga Nidra guided meditation, we will begin to restore the body, clear the mind and shift the habitual patterns that keep you from being calm, clear and balanced. Yoga Nidra uses the biological process of sleep to systematically release stored physical, emotional and mental tensions. Through the process, you can begin to let go of the old beliefs and habits that keep you locked in your past. Allow emotions to be experienced knowing that you have the capacity to feel them from a grounded and calm inner presence. Then, take this felt sense of being back into your personal life, family life, work life and love life.

We will move our bodies, clear our minds and create intentions to live not from your unconscious past programming but from a new perspective — the perspective of knowing your true self. All you have to do is show up, lie down and let go; Yoga Nidra will do the work. We will use two different lineages of Yoga Nidra — iRest and Integrative Amrit Method — for our inner exploration. Join us as we deeply rest, restore and rewrite our life.

Please bring blankets, a yoga mat, an eye pillow and anything you need to lie comfortably on the floor for Yoga Nidra.
