Intentional Rest: Restorative and Yoga Nidra with Katie Blecker ONLINE (Dec 19th, 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.

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, December 19th, 2:00-4:00pm. $35+tax before December 12th, $40+tax afterwards. Recordings will be available for three days following the event.

There is one spot available for financial assistance in this class. Email jane@oceanandcrow.ca to inquire.
