Candlelight Slow Flow & Yoga Nidra

This experience is designed to calm and balance the central nervous system and support you on your personal journey of growth and transformation.
The Yoga studio is dimly lit and illuminated with candles. Relaxing music plays softly in the background.
Class usually begins in a comfortable seated position. You will be led through a breath awareness exercise and practice using the breath to find your calm, quiet center. You will then be led through a process of identifying something you would like to see different or better in your life. A personal mantra is silently created and you will explore how to use your mantra, breath, and movement to consciously create positive change in your life.
You will link long deep breaths to slow flowing movement, creating a moving meditative experience. You will be introduced to techniques to manage stress and pain, and learn how to be less reactionary when feeling challenged.
About half way through the class, you will transition to a comfortable supported position on your back where we will then travel through a Yoga Nidra Guided Meditation. It is here where we will go to a place between being awake and being asleep, the “twilight zone” where we will work with the subconscious mind and your personal mantra to make positive changes on a deeper level.
Blankets and pillows are available, however, feel free to bring your own to ensure your comfort. Eye masks or eye pillows are a nice addition too. Dress in layers as your body temperature may fluctuate.
