What is Yoga Nidra?

Yoga nidra, or yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is an immensely powerful meditation technique, and one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain. While the practitioner rests comfortably in savasana (corpse pose), this systematic meditation takes you through the pancha maya kosha (five layers of self), leaving you with a sense of wholeness. It may look as if absolutely nothing is happening, but the deepest of restoration is occurring.

What are the benefits of practicing Yoga Nidra?

The benefits of practicing Yoga Nidra include deep relaxation, stress reduction, improved sleep, enhanced creativity, and heightened self-awareness. It releases tension, promotes emotional balance, and fosters holistic well-being by harmonizing body, mind, and spirit, offering a profound sense of rejuvenation and inner peace.

What should I bring to the Breathwork event? 

For this event, you'll need to lie flat on the floor. Please remember to bring a yoga mat, a blanket, a small pillow, and an eye mask. Utilizing an eye mask is strongly encouraged for a more profound experience. If lying flat on the floor is usually challenging for you, ensure to bring whatever you need to enhance your comfort during this event.

Why is the event two hours long?

The Breathwork session lasts for about an hour, starting with a 15-minute opening circle where we discuss the practice's details and ensure everyone's safety and comfort. Following the Breathwork, there will be a 30-minute session of soothing Yoga Nidra. The final 15 minutes will be dedicated to a closing circle and integration.
