Join Sonya for a magical evening of guided relaxation through live stream. Yoga Nidra is a practice that is usually practiced at the end of a Hatha yoga class and can vary from 10 - 20 mins.
But in this class, I wish to offer you the space to drop deeper into this extremely healing practice as a practice itself. Yoga Nidra which means "Yoga sleep" guides you through the body and helps to sense, notice and bring relaxation. Yoga Nidra is very deep form of relaxation and it's a practice that is cultivated and the more that we practise, the body begins to respond and moves into a state of deep rest and relaxation more easily over time.
While the practitioner rests comfortably in savasana (corpse pose), this systematic meditation takes you through the pancha maya kosha (five layers of self), leaving you with a sense of wholeness. We invite a nourishing intention of San Kalpa at the beginning of the practice. Yoga Nidra is a powerful yet very gentle meditative practice.
The stages of body awareness and breath awareness alone can be practiced to calm the nervous system, leading to less stress and better health. There is no wrong way to practice Yoga Nidra. Just show up on your mat and let the practice do what is needed! Yoga Nidra is suitable for everyone and it is always the favourite part of end every Hatha Yoga class for many students! It's a beautiful practice to get to know yourself innately.
This nourishing class will be held over the very easy live stream platform of Zoom.
