Less Stress, Better Sleep | Gentle Yoga & Deep Conscious Relaxation (also called Yoga Nidra)

This is a pre-recorded 60-minute gentle yoga session with conscious relaxation practice in the second half.

We are bombarded daily with excessive stimulation (smartphones, computers, the news & media, and life in general) and it clashes with our natural rhythms. This can cause us to be under-rested and then have to down cup after cup of coffee to keep us “alive” through the day. Stress affects not only our quality of life but our quality of sleep. This class will help you to down-regulate.

Gentle Yoga – This class is a 60-minute class that involves half the class spent in gentle yoga and the other in conscious relaxation. It is a quiet, slow, and meditative class. I will provide variations of poses using props such as chairs, blocks, straps, bolsters, and walls. Being a gentle supportive class, anyone is welcome at any ability. I offer variations to poses to assist you to make the most out of our practice. 

Conscious Relaxation – In our second half of class, we will experience conscious relaxation. This is like a guided meditation, but it induces full-body relaxation and a deep meditative state of consciousness. It is also known by the name Yoga Nidra. It is also practiced lying down, with the aid of blankets and props to comfort and support your body. It is an ancient but lesser known yogic technique described as “the sleep that awakens pure being.”

This practice that is intended to induce total physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. It is said that its restorative nature for just one hour is the same as four hours of regular sleep. We will move the mind from inner chatter to calm peace, so you can move into deep rest when you return home.

Our motto is Come as you are, Use what you have, Do what you can. 

We are here to accept and believe in ourselves no matter how we look or who we are. We are a body-positive, yoga-for-all space. Our classes are open to all bodies, all abilities, all levels are welcome.  

This will be a pre-recorded video and no live component.
