Yoga nidra is a guided meditation practiced in savasana and used for many purposes, including deep relaxation and experiencing an expanded state of consciousness. Participants enter into the hypnogogic state, a state on the threshold of sleep where the mind and body are able to replenish and let go.
The workshop will begin with gentle asana to release tension, followed by a series of restorative poses accompanied by soothing hands-on adjustments and essential oils. The practice will end with a forty-minute yoga nidra. Visualizations, pranayama, and mantras will be integrated throughout the practice to help release inner tension and experience an expanded state of awareness.
The yoga nidra will include all nine steps of Mona Anand’s ISHTA Yoga Nidra, a system designed by Mona and Alan Finger. The practice will be followed by a discussion of the science behind this profound technique and its numerous benefits. Mona will discuss what she did in each of the nine steps, and participants will have the opportunity to share their experiences and have their questions answered.
