This workshop will include an overview of the ancient practice of Yoga Nīdra, the yogic science of progressive relaxation wherein one attains a goal of bodily rest, while the mind remains awake and aware. In this state, one is able to better perceive subtle energies, and infuse their lives with healing intentions (called Sankalpa, in Sanskrit).
In this workshop, we will briefly introduce the history and how it works, then perform a guided practice, and have a sharing circle afterwards. No prior training in meditation or yoga is necessary, although Yoga Nīdra can work in conjunction with other meditation practices to deepen them.
Yoga Nīdra is performed while completely in śavāsana (corpse pose).
