Yoga Nidra (or yogic sleep) is a ancient practice built upon Indian traditions such as Hinduism and Buddhism. The goal of this class is to help the student to willfully achieve a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the "going-to-sleep" stage, or deep relaxation. It differs from meditation in its method; whereas the meditative state is reached through contemplation and a singular focus, yoga nidra is achieved by internalizing or ‘releasing’ the five senses that comprise the conscious state. Some compare the experience to lucid dreaming.
Jay Jay Zaia will guide the class.
