You’ve heard the term, but what does it actually mean? Nidrā, translated from Sanskrit, means “sleep”. How is “yogic sleep” different from regular sleep? There are multiple approaches to yoga nidrā, with different intentions, but all include the principle of letting the physical body relax completely while the mind stays conscious. The body moves into the sleep state and the mind is guided through a process of calming, then is directed toward more subtle experiences. Paul will share the foundational theory of yoga nidrā and guide attendees through several practices.
Practices will include light āsana and breath work, then students lay down on yoga mats for yoga nidrā.
