YOGA NIDRA with SHALANNE
This workshop will work through a gentle 45 minute practice focusing on moving meditation followed by deep rest guided Yoga Nidra session to reset the body, mind, and spirit. Yoga Nidra or Yoga Sleep is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, and is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions. This state of consciousness (yoga nidra) is different from meditation in which concentration on a single focus is required. In yoga nidra the practitioner remains in a state of light pratyahara with four of his or her senses internalised and only the hearing still connects to the instructions. The yogic goal of both paths, deep relaxation and meditation are the same, a state of meditative consciousness.
