What is Yoga Nidra?

Yoga Nidra is a special ancient form of sleep-based guided meditation. It is a unique marriage of science and Spirit, combining alert awareness and deepest relaxation.  This practice reduces stress hormones, lowers blood pressure and heart rates, while the nervous system balances and relaxes.  Let’s go even deeper . . .

Your ability to connect with your Higher Self for healing and personal growth is already part of who you really are. Yoga Nidra gently guides you to a 4th state of consciousness, or Witness state, where you re-connect with your natural state of Well-Being on all levels.  This then allows the blossoming of the unique expression of your True Nature everywhere you go, with whomever you are with, and in everything you do.

In this retreat, we will be co-creating seeds of intention (Sankalpa), offering a space to explore what you need in the moment, as well as an opportunity to work on releasing long-held emotions and false identifications. Then in our practice of Yoga Nidra, at the deepest level of surrender and trust, we will plant our intentions, turning the ‘doing’ over to our Higher Self.

Join me in this journey of remembering . . . imagine and allow a life of relaxed Acceptance, Joy, Love, Freedom, and Fulfillment, beyond your wildest dreams !
