Intentional Rest: Restorative and Yoga Nidra with Katie Blecker ONLINE WORKSHOP (Oct 24th 2020)

CAD$42Purchase required to enroll

Feeling stressed, exhausted, or overwhelmed? Join Katie for a deeply nourishing self-care practice of restorative yoga and yoga nidra.

You may attend online OR in-person; there are four spots available for in-person yoga. Recordings of the online event will be available for three days following this event. You must register at least an hour in advance of the class in order to get the appropriate link.

Restorative yoga postures gently guide the body and mind into a state of comfort and relaxation, setting the stage for a deeply restful, therapeutic guided meditation practice called yoga nidra. In this way, we gradually prepare the body and mind for an experience of quiet and ease, which allows our systems to rest, replenish, and invite healing on many levels. This two hour experience is open to all levels of practice (including true beginners) and anyone who is comfortable with lying on the floor with the support of props. Online attendees can use household props you already have. The first hour or so will be dedicated to exploring a few restorative yoga postures and then we’ll move into a guided meditation experience.

Yoga nidra is the art and science of yogic sleep. You’ll be guided through a systematic series of instructions that gradually move your awareness inward. While your body experiences the physiological effects of sleep, your mind settles into a place of inner awareness. You’ll be guided through working with a sankalpa (a deep, heartfelt intention) which is a personal statement about something meaningful that you wish to call forth in your life. For some, the state of yoga nidra is a profound and introspective place. For others, it’s a chance to receive the physical benefits of true rest and relaxation. It’s commonly said that an hour or less of yoga nidra compares to 3-4 hours of actual deep sleep.

Saturday, October 24th, 2-4pm. $35+tax before October 17th, $40+tax afterwards. Recordings will be available for three days following the event.
