Come learn how simple, beautiful and healing this practice can be in this class that will include asana and breath work. This will be suitable to any level, even if you have never done yoga. This class is to both simplify the practice and to raise funds for The Trini Foundation. Every dollar raised goes directly toward teaching Ashtanga yoga classes in substance abuse treatment centers and providing yoga tuition scholarships for individuals in recovery.
Meditation: Yoga Nidra
Yoga Nidra (Psychic sleeping) – Yoga Nidra is the art of conscious relaxation. It is a powerful practice where the body and mind are liberated from their tensions and anxiety. One learns how to put the body into sleep while the mind remains fully awake. The brain wave drops into the theta state where deep levels of healing takes place on the emotional, mental, and physical planes.
