Seasonal Self-Care: Holiday Restorative & Yoga Nidra Workshop with Katie Blecker (Dec 28th)

CAD$47.25Purchase required to enroll

The holidays can be a time of added pressure and stress, and it can be easy to forget the importance of taking good care of ourselves at this time of year. Join Katie for a nourishing and restful extended practice where you will indulge in some extra-supportive restorative yoga, followed by a full length yoga nidra meditation. This class will offer a place of refuge during this hectic, and often emotionally challenging time of year.

This workshop is open to all levels and anyone who is comfortable with laying on the floor (with the support of lots of props, of course!) Space is limited to 10 participants so that each person has access to a plentiful amount of props and guidance in setting things up ‘just right’ to cultivate space to rest deeply. The first hour or so will be dedicated to restorative yoga and then we’ll move into an extended Savasana for the yoga nidra practice.

Yoga Nidra is a heart-centered form of guided meditation. While you lay down comfortably, you will be guided through a particular multi-layered process that gradually allows your body to find a state of sleep while your mind remains present, yet focused deeply on witnessing your inner experience. Through this internal journey you might begin to release old patterns, thoughts, or behaviours that are no longer serving your highest good, which can create space for deep transformation and connection to who you are. Many practitioners also report feelings of relaxation, rejuvenation, and nourishment after experiencing the state of yoga nidra. It’s often said that an hour or less of yoga nidra compares physiologically to 3-4 hours of actual sleep.

Saturday, December 28th, 2-4pm, $45+tax before December 21st, $50+tax after.
