Deep Rest: Intro to Yoga Nidra

  • LIV Yoga and Wellness 840 6 Avenue Southwest Calgary, AB, T2P 3E5 Canada (map)

Yoga Nidra is a practice of creating an open and rested state of being to nourish ourselves more fully. It is a guided, meditative journey through all layers of our being that supports us to move into slower, more easeful brain wave states where we can drop below the busyness of the conscious, thinking mind and access the subconscious mind. By working with the subconscious mind we have the opportunity to reprogram belief systems and patterns that inform our conscious mind and waking life. 

Yoga Nidra translates to sleep with awareness, it is a deep dive into the Self bringing us to rest in peace and supreme stillness. This practice puts us directly into connection with that part of self that remembers itself as already completely whole.

This workshop is open to all levels of practitioners both new and seasoned. It will be an introduction to the practice of Yoga Nidra including an overview of the philosophy behind it, as well as the science that supports and validate this ancient practice. We will also discuss the use of Sankalpa (affirmative statements) in the practice and select one to work with. Through this workshop we will be deepening your understanding of how the practice works to facilitate healing and deep rest as well as giving you a whole experience of the practice itself. 

We will begin with a brief discussion and gentle movement followed by 40 minutes of the Yoga Nidra practice which is done lying on your back, well supported by props for maximal comfort
