...is a deep state of relaxation in which you are awake, and yet, you go deeper and deeper.
Research shows that 30 minutes of yoga nidra is equivalent to 4 hours of deep sleep.
To help you achieve this state, Sandy will guide you through group chanting, a few gentle yoga postures and then you'll lie down. As you relax, she'll incorporate guided meditation, visualization, and sounds of crystal singing bowls, a gong, and other sounds to help you go deeper into a yogic sleep. The typical experience is beyond words. We share a nourishing tea afterwards and whole fruit.
Being guided into this deep state means that deep relaxation is readily available to you, offering a practical method for restoring body and mind.
Play the videos to hear the crystal bowls, a few of the sounds you will hear in this journey.

YOGA NIDRA is a deep relaxed yet wakeful state, a "yogic sleep," through yoga, guided meditation & sound immersion. Those who fall asleep still receive all the benefits! Yes, it's that good!
Yoga Nidra involves lying down and being aware of the sounds around you.Imagine being in a deep sleep state but you are conscious and aware. Some liken it to lucid dreaming, others describe it as the stage between being awake and falling asleep. Yoga nidra is a yogic sleep, a deep state of pure relaxation where we have consciously engaged the relaxation response and go as deep as we can. Your brain waves come into the theta state, often described as a magical state of consciousness that is difficult to maintain. Yoga nidra helps you maintain it.
Imagine the end of a typical one hour yoga class where we rest lying down for a few minutes in "corpse pose" or savasana. Been there? Multiply that feeling by ten! It's powerful! The relaxation response is triggered with deep breathing, meditation, visualization, and sound. We'll be doing all of these.
Guided meditation will help you journey deeper into a relaxing state after which you'll hear Sandy play sound healing instruments. You'll be lying down, snuggled up, absorbing the sounds and clearing away tension in the mind while opening up to clarity in the heart.
MANTRA/CHANTING in the beginning of our practice helps calm and center the mind. Self-generated sound healing is a powerful way to begin, to release, to feel, to heal, and to sink deeper into what this experience has to offer you.
YOGA incorporated after the opening of our practice is meant to release the layer of physical tension you're holding in the body. This will allow less physical distraction and more awareness of it at the same time. It is a controlled awareness. Less body tension allows for deeper relaxation. Movement is important before you rest lying down for a good hour!
WHAT TO BRING
Blankets and blocks will be provided.
Please bring a yoga mat and hydration. We will share tea to close the evening. In case you'd like extra cozy nestling, bring blankets and/or pillows, an eye mask or light kerchief to cover your eyes for darkness, and anything else your heart desires for comfort.
RELAXATION FACILITATES CLARITY
Imagine your mind as a spacious and vast sky, just like the one above you. There are times when this sky is filled with clouds of liquid droplets, frozen crystals, suspended particles keeping you from seeing the light above them and under them. Your physical body, your emotions, your thoughts, and all the tension in between, layer upon layer, clouding this sky and keeping you from seeing clearly. You've felt the difference between a "cloudy" and a "clear" mind. You already know what I mean!
This workshop, using pure quartz crystal singing bowls among other sound healing instruments, is about coming into clarity and the feeling of knowing. When we can clear our inner selves, we can more easily trust ourselves. We already know deep down inside, we just need to clear the overcast sky and see that internal flame. Seeing clearly in the mind and heart shines radiance into your life, so that everything all around, as if sparkling, looks different, even the darkness, the sadness and the pain.
I hope you'll take time to join me to shine your clear heart!
Let the Mind's Radiant Clarity sparkle and tickle your bones.
The session begins with mantra and then a few gentle yoga postures to release tension and relax the physical body. You do not have to have experience with yoga for this. Lying down comfortably, the guided meditation and sounds will help you come into an even deeper state of relaxation and a deeper state of consciousness.
You'll feel different, changed, and yet much more like yourself.
