Reset Your Self Mini-Retreat with Alissa Martin and Bianca Lorage

What is Yoga Nidra?

The practice of Yoga Nidra, typically translated as “Yogic Sleep,” is an invitation to a sleep-like state where we can release tension, stress and anything that is no longer useful, while replacing it with a heartfelt desire.

Join us for a physical, mental and emotional experience to give yourself time to reset.

We will begin and end this mini-retreat with a rejuvenating all-levels Yoga practice, including Yoga Nidra.

You will be guided into creating a personal intention, through journaling. We will also blend a calming herbal tea to take home, and take a meditative nature walk. A light, plant-based dinner will be provided.

Please bring your journal or a notebook with you, and a pen. The nature walk will be rain or shine, so bring clothes appropriate for a walk outdoors (and an umbrella if needed).

Side-Effects May Include:

  • A chance to reset
  • Stress relief
  • Deep relaxation
  • Calm nervous system
  • Rejuvenated outlook
  • A sense of community

Alissa Martin

Alissa believes strongly in taking time for self-care, especially with Yoga and Nature. She sees the beauty in the uniqueness of the individual practice.

Alissa’s classes always offer a healthy dose of compassion, introspection and nourishing movement. She teaches students how to slow down, notice, and listen – always leaving them with some food for thought to help take their practice off their mats and into the rest of their lives.

Bianca Lorage

Bianca works as an Outreach Worker supporting families and facilitating programs for children facing addiction, poverty and mental illness. Through working in this field, she began to realize the heaviness that can come with caring for others in difficult situations, and the mental and emotional implications that will inevitably show up without proper self-care. Since taking her first 200 hour yoga teacher training in 2015, Bianca has been inspired by the philosophies that guide yoga, and the self-study it encourages. As she continues to study different modalities in holistic wellness, she hopes to instill this curiosity of self-discovery within others.


Community Events

This is what Yoga is all about. Community events include gatherings such as drum circles, free yoga days, and wellness clinics. They are the things we do together to interconnect, share experience, and raise awareness or money for an initiative (such as a local charity). We invite you to come out and meet others in the Kushala community.
