Guided Meditation for Deep Relaxation
with Jen Leary
Sundays from 9:30a-10:30a
Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep, is an ancient meditation technique where you enter a deep state of conscious relaxation. This class will begin with 10-15 minutes of gentle, seated movements to quiet the body, then move into a 45 min restorative yoga nidra meditation. A 45-minute session of yoga nidra is equivalent to a peaceful three-hour nap. Yoga Nidra calms the autonomic nervous system, which regulates the body’s processes that take place without a conscious effort (heartbeat, breathing, digestion, and blood flow), and the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, creating a feeling of deep calm and relaxation. Another benefit of Yoga Nidra is it may help you fall asleep faster and experience higher quality sleep. Anyone can enjoy this meditation; no experience is necessary.
