Sunday March 14th 8am at Yoga Essence of Dunellen. Suchitra will be accepting donations to assist with the operations of Yoga Essence during this pandemic.
Yoga Nidra is a practice of yogic sleep guiding you through pancha-maya-kosha into a state of consciousness, visualization and expanded awareness. It induces deep relaxation and healing. Associated with pratyahara and dharana, it helps you slip into a meditative state.
We will start our practice with intro, pranayama, a short warm flow into stretching, followed by a guided Yoga Nidra, and a ten-minute meditation. Yogic sleep helps the nervous system to reset, encourage Delta and Theta brain waves, and is known to promote cellular healing.
Yoga Nidra experience can be improved using these props (totally optional), and can also be practiced at home on the carpet or on your bed.
- A Yoga mat, blanket over the yoga mat, rolled towel or blanket width-wise at mid-torso, small blanket or soft pillow for under the head, extra blanket/sheet to cover up with, and a small bolster under the knees.
- Eye pillow or a small face towel to cover your eyes.
- A journal and a pen.
- Comfortable clothing & socks to keep you cozy through laying down relaxation.
Find a room where you can be alone and undisturbed. Set out 90 minutes that no one disturbs you. Let your family know so that you are not interrupted. You are encouraged to put your phones on silent. Let this time be just for you.
Donations accepted inperson cash/check or electronically via Venmo/PayPal (friends and family)
