Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is the ancient meditation practice of deep rest.

This challenging time has given us many blessings, including the blessing of bringing our yoga practices home. Many of us have only practiced yoga in a studio setting, but now we are beginning to explore the ways technology can help to enhance our selfcare habits.

Yoga Nidra is one practice that can help us to reduce our stress and reduce pain while increasing our capacity to concentrate. Thanks to the very 2020 theme of connecting through technology, we can get together and share this skill building practice.

Yoga Nidra is for everyone, all abilities, all ages, no experience necessary.

Thursday, August 27, from 7:30-8:30pm you can experience this ancient meditation practice.

I love sharing yoga and it’s practical acceptance of receiving whatever this moment holds. I am a Certified Yoga Therapist (Ajna Yoga Centre, Victoria) and meditation teacher, with background as a Massage Therapist (Mount Royal University, Calgary). I have been practising yoga since 1998. When I first began yoga classes, I was immediately hooked by the quiet exploration and play of moving through the postures. Yoga’s natural exploration of the inner world is a comfortable reminder of childhood. I began practising at the Victoria Iyengar Centre and have since spent many years exploring the Vijnana style practice. The Vijnana practice is a beautiful, flexible, and compassionate practice that calls us to work from within. The foundations of the Vijnana practice are the Seven Vital Principles. These principles are relaxing, quieting the mind, intent, rooting, connecting, breathing and elongating. With each breath, each pose, and every practice, the investigation begins anew. I love this emphasis on trusting intuition, exploring -not from our external guides, but from inner awareness, our own authentic self.
