Yoga Nidra Workshop with Tracy

Yoga Nidra, or Yogic Sleep, is a state of profound full body relaxation and deep meditative awareness while remaining fully awake and alert; it is the ancient science of slowing brain wave frequency to the alpha and theta states, promoting healing at the cellular level.  Simple instructions for body scans, breathing techniques and visual imagery relax the brain and allows the left and right hemispheres to integrate and the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system to come into balance.

The 2 hour Yoga Nidra Workshop offers an overview of the science of Yoga Nidra, referenced in the Mandukya Upanishads, followed by a gentle 45 minute Asana practice; while in Savasana, students are guided into the experience of Yoga Nidra to help remove energetic blocks and limitations at the physical, mental and emotional level; unconscious inhibitions and fears are released, and deep seated and repetitive karmic patterns are relinquished.  There will be time at the end for sharing.

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by the spark of another person.  Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.  Albert Schweitzer
