Yoga Nidra and the Art of Conscious Relaxation

With Carolyn Bagdoyan

Fee: $20 pre-registered; $25 drop-in

Yoga Nidra is an ancient practice that takes people into a state of deep relaxation through a guided meditative process and conscious visualization.  Also known as yogic sleep, the practice gives rest to the mind, body and senses by drawing the practitioner into a state of conscious awareness—a brain state between full wakefulness and full sleep.  This practice has been linked with reducing stress, tension and pain; improving circulation and immune functioning; lowering blood pressure and inflammation; and stabilizing mood.

Carolyn Bagdoyan is certified in Dr. Marc Halpern’s Yoga Nidra and Self-Healing. Yoga Nidra is generally practiced while lying down or in a seated position. For your comfort, please bring a pillow and wear comfortable clothing and arrive 15 minutes before class start.  Mats and blankets are available at the studio or feel free to bring your own.

Please RSVP to reserve a spot with Jan at bodygrace@verizon.net by Saturday, Feb. 10 to receive the pre-registered price.

Yin Yoga

With Lisa Gunther
Fee: $20 preregistered; $25 drop-in

Yin yoga is a meditative style of yoga which provides a deeper release in the body by safely working the connective tissue - the ligaments, tendons and fascia. Poses are typically held for three to seven minutes, increasing circulation in the joints and enhancing range of motion.
Yin also stimulates the flow of qi, the body's subtle energy.
This quiet and sometimes intense practice allows you to release and connect more profoundly into inner silence and awareness.

Please reserve a spot with Jan by Saturday, Feb. 17 for preregistered price.
Drop-ins are welcome with a minimum of six preregistered students.
