Program Description 

Yoga Nidra is an ancient sleep-based meditation technique that has the power to take you to the innermost, deepest levels of relaxation where your whole body and being is permeated by peace of mind and profound stillness.

Program Objective

The practice of Yoga Nidra will allow the participant to have more focus, awareness, and energy, along with improved wellbeing.

Program Format

Yoga Nidra Meditation: Exercises will be done on the floor, so please wear comfortable clothing as well as layers, as body temperatures tend to drop when in a profoundly relaxed state. You are encouraged to bring a blanket, pillow, yoga mat, eye mask, or whatever you may need for a relaxing nap.
