Restorative Yoga & Yoga Nidra


Event Details


Let your body and mind unwind.

When your life is racing full-speed ahead, so is your mind. Restorative yoga helps provide that physical and mental balance to prevent stress and anxiety. With the assistance of props (bolsters, blocks, blankets), we will hold supported passive postures for a few minutes each, using no muscular effort. Our restorative session will end with Yoga Nidra.

Yoga Nidra is a systematic method for total relaxation. It means “Sleep of the Yogis,” and has also been aptly called the “Zero Stress Zone” and “Relaxing into Greatness.” At the height of practice, the subconscious – where our deepest tensions are stored – becomes relaxed and open. You’ll be guided into a familiar state of mental twilight between wakefulness and sleep known to neuroscientists as “theta.” Practitioners of Yoga Nidra describe a floating feeling of luscious comfort, safety, and well-being, and have a decreased sense of linear time passing.

You can choose to attend this special class IRL (In Real Life) at our Lewes studio – or – VIRTUALLY (via Zoom) from your home.

Props:
All props will be provided for each attendant IRL (In Real Life).

** For yogis joining us from home via Zoom, you will need the following:

  • 2-4 blocks
  • 2 blankets
  • 1 bolster (or 2 sofa pillows)

Benefits of Yoga Nidra include:

  • Deep relaxation during the practice and afterwards
  • Cultivation of a clearer and more positive mindset during active life
  • Improved sleep
  • Alleviation of diseases associated with stress like hypertension
