Holistic Health Practitioner

The Yin Lounge at SHAKTI
Tuesdays 1-1:45pm

The practice of Yoga Nidra dates back thousands of years in the Tantric tradition. It’s therapeutic application for modern times cannot be overstated. It is a nervous system tonic- and beyond. Right from the start, Yoga Nidra deactivates the stress reaction (fight/flight/fawn) by activating the relaxation response. Since the stress response is subconscious and automatic, we must learn ways to intervene as well as use skills to break the cycle of stress. Over time, your Nidra practice makes it possible to develop control over the autonomic nervous system and a range of reactions to stress.
Additionally, in Nidra we work with a Sankalpa which is a powerful personal commitment to your evolution. We feather in the Sankalpa at key moments throughout the process, when your brain is in a Delta state and your subconscious is impressionable. This literally re-wires your neural circuitry and has the power to catapult your healing and growth.
For Nidra to be effective you must be comfortable and feel safe enough to relax your body completely. Cue the Yin Mat. If ever there was an alluring mat to cradle your body with just the right amount of softness and support- the Yin Mat is IT! Participants in this series will receive the entire amount paid OFF the Yin Mat of their choice. Contact Sarah for coupon code.

Yoga Nidra 45 minute Class:
Caring for the Inner Child

This session is a loving and meaningful offering to yourself. We gently address core wounding, which is typically a result of one or more of our three basic needs not being met as children/young adults. Those needs are: safety, belonging, and dignity. This deeply relaxing and healing journey will tend to the imbalances left by this primal wounding, as we weave our sankalpa through the chakras, all the while offering our inner child attention, curiosity and pure presence.

To learn more about the ancient practice of Yoga Nidra...

Yoga Nidra is a deeply relaxing, meditative practice done laying down in savasana (corpse pose). The practitioner is guided through pancha maya kosha (the five layers of self) in a systematic method that promotes deep, nourishing rest and transformative healing. It is accessible to nearly everybody and easy to implement as a regular practice.

Rest is MEDICINE for mind, body, soul, community and Earth. And it is needed now. You can find Yoga Nidra videos on my YouTube channel, Sacredly Sustained. And for the world's BEST NIDRA NEST see my other website: yinmat. com
