When the Breath wanders, the mind is unsteady, but when the Breath is still, so is the mind still." - Hatha Yoga Pradipika



Join us for this special class to help you integrate the power of YOGA NIDRA (meditation) and PRANAYAMA (breathwork) into your yoga practice at a deeper level.


Together these two disciplines will give you a powerful, 30-minute life-changing experience -- a way to reduce stress and anxiety, relieve pain and improve overall well-being. This class is offered to you as a special service. Your donation is greatly appreciated as it helps keep classes like this going.



PRANAYAMA (Breathwork)


Experience the healing power of meditation and pranayama (breathwork). Breathing is life. It is one of our most vital functions and one of the Eight Rungs of Raja Yoga, as defined by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras. Pranayama is composed of the Sanskrit words Prāna, life force, or vital energy, particularly the breath, and āyāma, to extend, draw out, restrain, or control. The control or extension of the life force affects changes in body and mind and therefore is a powerful means of re-establishing balance and health.



YOGA NIDRA (Meditation)


Yoga Nidra is a highly powerful ancient meditation technique originated from the Tantras. In the deep relaxation state of yoga nidra, the mind is in a state between sleep and wakefulness and its receptivity is many times more than its receptivity in wakeful state. The secret is that the subconscious mind is at front in this state while the conscious mind takes the back seat. The subconscious mind is a very obedient disciple and immediately carries out the orders that you put to it. By practicing Yoga Nidra you can train your subconscious mind and your conscious mind and intellect will follow. The subconscious and the unconscious mind are the most powerful forces in the human being. In yoga nidra you learn how to access these powerful forces to gain knowledge, heal yourself, increase creativity, and to realize your true self.
