YOGA NIDRA - 60 mins

YOGA = union of body, breath, mind and spirit NIDRA = sleep

Yoga Nidra provides a deeply restorative relaxation experience by integrating the power and science of harmonizing mind, body and breath. In this deeply relaxing guided meditation you will be lying down, or sitting if that’s more comfortable for you, fully supporting your body in a comfortable restorative pose. You’ll use props that you already have at home — such as blankets and cushions — to create a nurturing shape that encourages your body and mind to relax deeply and let go.

In this guided meditation journey all you need to do is follow my voice as you are are guided to bypass the busy chatter of your mind and ease into expansive, peaceful awareness.

With the slowing of the mind, your brainwaves shift into a calmer state associated with sleep, but you will be fully awake. This calm state allows the body’s natural healing ‘relaxation response’ to begin to function and neuroscience tells us that this type of deep relaxation is an ESSENTIAL component to the function of neuroplasticity aka the ability to keep on learning new healthier habits and tapping into deeper states of creativity.

Through this powerful process you will be invited to plant your own personalized intention — for calm, or healing, abundance, or happiness, whatever you choose! — without interference of self-doubt, worry, fear or your inner critic. Resting in deep stillness you are gently guided back into a calm, peaceful, fully-awake state of being.

You will emerge feeling more relaxed, calm and peaceful!

Intro To Meditation - 30 mins

Learn the basics with easy, simple 1-5 minute practices. These classes are designed with the realistic understanding that in order to begin, grow and strengthen a meditation practice it has to fit in your busy and sometimes complicated life. For most people even sitting still for 3 minutes can be a challenge, let alone the often prescribed 15-45 mins! Each week we’ll cover topics such as the nature of the mind, emotions and the power of the breath. There will be a short teaching at the beginning, followed by 2 short meditation practices based on mindfulness and yogic meditations.

The class is interactive so students will be able to ask questions and will come away feeling supported with ideas on how to begin their own home practice, and have an understanding of how to face and overcome the challenges meditation can present.

Our thoughts DIRECTLY influence our breathing patterns, emotions and actions. Creating a sense of calm balance and resilience begins with awareness. Meditation can show you the way.

LOVING KINDNESS Meditation and LIGHT & ENERGY meditations - 30 mins

LOVING KINDNESS & COMPASSION meditation will focus on understanding and practicing meditations based on the core teachings of Loving Kindness, Compassion, and Self-compassion. These are powerful methods to create great inner calm, an expanded state of awareness and an ability to remain grounded and happy in the midst of fear and uncertainty.

LIGHT & ENERGY meditations focus on yoga principles of chakras, aka energy centers, and visualization techniques that use the power of the mind to access deeper states of inner awareness. The mind moves from ‘out there’ inward to cultivate the ability to become aware of stress and tension as it arises, better enabling you to make conscious choices for your overall balanced and harmonious well-being.
Using meditation techniques such as Body Of Light meditation gives you direct experience of your innate, powerful ability to manage your mind and enter states of deep calm, beyond external stresses and internal worries.

FLOW. Breathe. Be. - 60 mins

THIS CLASS IS AN ESSENTIAL IN THIS TIME OF COVID-19. The class begins with movement to release muscle tension, gradually moving awareness to the breath focusing on it as a tool to access full lung capacity and deepening calm. Deep breathing is essential for activating the ‘relaxation response’, healthy lungs and an overall sense of calm well-being and balance.

You’ll learn 3-part yogic breath aka diaphragmatic breathing, and simple yogic breathwork practices called pranayama to deepen your state of relaxation and present-moment awareness. The last segment of the class you have the choice of moving into seated meditation or taking a restorative pose.
