YOGA NIDRA – SATURDAY FEBRUARY 14 2-4 PM $20
Yoga Nidra is a powerful yet simple technique of guided relaxation; the perfect antidote for a busy and fragmented life. As you are guided to move your awareness throughout your body, you will experience deeper and deeper states of relaxation, resulting in a sense of peace, harmony and balance. Deep healing is possible with the practice of “yogic sleep,” a true gift to the body, mind and spirit. No experience is needed. Offered the first Saturday of every month!

To cultivate your inner love and light, take a few minutes for this simple meditation.
1 – Sit in a comfortable position with a long spine and eyes gently closed; sit on either a floor cushion or a chair
2 – As you breath naturally, bring your awareness to the heart, visualizing or feeling there a soft, warm light
3 – As you inhale, feel or visualize the light growing brighter, warmer. As you exhale, feel or visualize the light expanding and softening the heart
4 – As you continue inhaling and exhaling naturally, let your awareness stay with the brightening and expanding light. Each inhale brightens the light and each exhale lets it expand into and soften more of the body, then the room and beyond
5 – When you feel complete, before opening your eyes, take a few moments to savor the connection between your own heart and the hearts of others
Love and Light,
