- The Art and Practice of Relaxation
Yoga Nidra also known as yogic sleep is a ancient practice of dynamic relaxation that is very calming with many health benefits that help to release mental & emotional energetic patterns from the conscious and subconscious mind.
Yoga Nidra is a systematic method of complete relaxation that invites you to turn inward from your outer experiences where your consciousness is functioning at a deeper level of awareness. This deeper awareness will lead you to a higher state of concentration and towards our highest awareness of Samadhi, Bliss.
Join Cindy Shapiro for this deeply relaxing practice.
