Holiday Healing Nidra

Melissa Lees, RYT 200
$15, pre-registration required
Tis the season to be jolly, fa la la la…
from shopping with long lines and short tempers to diet-busting parties with bellyaches and countless hours on your feet to endless decorating and no sleep…all while maintaining your daily routine…
wow, it is not easy to feel not so great at this most wonderful time of the year.
Well, two words : yoga nidra.
Yoga nidra is a relaxation and meditation technique that originated in India and roughly translates to yogic sleep. It is not really about getting in some good zzz’s on your mat, although it might be just what your body is going to order.
Nidra is the practice that allows our body to turns off our ‘flight or fight’ response and turn on our ‘relaxation’ response, the body’s natural healing state which gives our body and mind the necessary time it needs to heal, slow down and prevent illness.
Our bodies know exactly what to do to attain and maintain health and equilibrium, but it is necessary to practice deep relaxation to go into this state for healing to happen.
