A practice designed to release inner tension and connect us back to our essence which is peace and joy
We are made up of five vibratory fields (koshas) that surround our spirit (atman) When there is tension in any one of these fields, it effects the others and we lose our connection to spirit, to our natural state of being which is peace and joy. In this workshop we will focus on releasing tension in all five sheaths using asana, pranayama, kriya techniques restorative postures, visualization and yoga nidra.
The practice will begin with gentle guided vinyasa to release stress in the physical body and the breath. Participants will then recline on bolsters to the sound of soothing music, the aroma of essential oils and gentle hands on adjustments. Restorative poses will be accompanied by pranayama, visualizations and kriya techniques to help release tension from all five vibratory fields.
The practice will end with a thirty to forty minute long yoga nidra, designed to systematically release contraction from each of these vibratory fields starting with the physical body, ten the breath body, the mind body, the wisdom body so we can rest back into the bliss body. When we are connected to our essence the light of spirt shines through directing and giving meaning to our lives.
