Yoga Nidra and the Nervous System
Yoga Nidra, typically translated as “Yogic Sleep,” is an invitation to a sleep-like state where we can release tension, stress and what is no longer needed. When practiced regularly, Yoga Nidra can improve sleep patterns and concentration, regulate blood pressure and digestion, calm the nervous system and connect you to your own source of healing.
This class will begin with gentle Yoga postures and Somatics practices (ways of tapping into our innate ability to be present and heal) to prepare the body and regulate the nervous system for the deep relaxation of Yoga Nidra.
