• Sacral Chakra: Yoga Nidra for Creativity

    Yoga in Quartz Hill

    $25.00

    Yoga Nidra, also known as “yogic sleep” is highly effective deep relaxation technique. The entire practice is done lying down and is similar to guided meditation. Yoga Nidra activates the parasympathetic nervous system (the part of your nervous system that controls rest and digestion) allowing the practitioner to enter a state of ultimate relaxation. Through Yoga Nidra, you can access a realm of consciousness that exists between waking and sleeping, combining an alert awareness of the mind with total relaxation of the body. It is a practice where science and spirit meet—working together to relieve the tension and stress. Yoga Nidra helps release mental blockages known in Sanskrit as samskaras. This session will emphasize bringing balance to the sacral chakra's core issue of creativity.

    The Wellness of OZ Yoga, Meditation & Workshop Studio

    • What we'll do Prana vidya is a progressive and systematic set of breathing exercises by which we acquire knowledge of the aspect of consciousness known as prana, the life force that permeates the entire body. The focus of prana vidya is to awaken and manipulate the breath consciously. As the practitioner develops subtle awareness of the breath s/he is able to perceive and gain knowledge of the nature of the prana, which in turn leads to new dimensions of awareness, understanding and total heath. Prana vidya focuses both the expansion of consciousness and the awakening of prana. This is a transformative practice done both seated and lying down. Prana vidya is an important step in the journey toward self-realization and wholeness. Please wear comfortable clothing. Price: $20 • What to bring Come on a empty stomach.
