What:  Extended Yoga Nidra Guided Meditation

How it Works:  You’ll get to relax while lying on your back with your eyes closed.  And you will be guided step by step through the yoga nidra process.  Blissfully relaxing!

RSVP:  Call Charlie Brens at (303) 589-2240 (or email me and I’ll forward your RSVP to Charlie).

Who is Invited?:   Anyone that can either relax on a yoga mat on the floor for 45 minutes (or if you cannot relax on a yoga mat you can sit on the sofa).

  • 2-3 blankets.  You’ll want to add a blanket or two to your yoga mat to make it more comfortable.

From Yoga Journal:

Also known as yogic sleep or sleep with awareness, Yoga Nidra is an ancient practice that is rapidly gaining popularity in the West. It is intended to induce full-body relaxation and a deep meditative state of consciousness. “We live in a chronically exhausted, overstimulated world,” says Rod Stryker. “Yoga Nidra is a systematic method of complete relaxation, holistically addressing our physiological, neurological, and subconscious needs.”

During a typical class, teachers use a variety of techniques—including guided imagery and body scanning—to aid relaxation”Yoga Nidra uniquely unwinds the nervous system,” Stryker says, “which is the foundation of the body’s well-being.”
