YOGA NIDRA INTENSIVE
with Tina Foster
Yoga Nidra is a systematic approach to complete relaxation. American Yoga Master Rod Stryker calls the experience one of “relaxing into greatness.” At the height of practice, the subconscious – where our deepest tensions are stored – becomes relaxed and open. Tina will guide students into a familiar state of mental twilight between wakefulness and dreams known to neuroscientists as “theta.” Practitioners of Yoga Nidra describe a feeling of luscious comfort, safety, and well-being, with no sense of linear time passing.
Benefits of Yoga Nidra include:
- deep relaxation during the practice and afterwards
- cultivation of a more positive mindset and more clarity during active life
- improved sleep
- alleviation of diseases associated with stress such as depression, hypertension, asthma, and digestive disorders
Workshop cost is $40. Pre-register by October 25 and pay only $35.
Space is limited to 15 students. Walk-ins will be accepted only if space permits.
Added layers are recommended for comfort.
