6:30 – 7:30pm Yoga Nidra: Ancient Remedy for Modern Life

Yoga Nidra (yoga sleep)
Explore the Ancient Science of Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is a powerful and transformational practice. Science has shown that Yoga Nidra can ease
insomnia, relieve chronic pain, calm anxieties, alleviate stress, transform negative habits, behaviors and
ways of thinking, enhance mental focus and improve creativity and whole brain functioning.
The practice of Yoga Nidra gently takes your body into a deep state of relaxation while your mind
remains inwardly alert. You may move through the four main stages of brain wave activity into a state
between wakefulness and sleep – a place where you are fully aware. That’s why it’s also known as
Enlightened Sleep.
Come experience the science and magic of Yoga Nidra.

Relax, Restore, Heal with Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra (yoga sleep) is for you if you want to de-stress, sleep better, feel energized, improve your performance, or heal from trauma. With regular practice, yoga nidra can have profound physical, psychological and spiritual benefits.

Walk Away As Refreshed As If You Had Taken a 3-Hour Nap!

Yoga Nidra is a nourishing practice for deep relaxation physically, mentally, and emotionally. The stillness of the practice brings incredible calm and mental clarity. The session allows you the space to explore what you need at the moment, as well as release long-held emotions. Better yet, 45 minutes of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to a three-hour nap. Refresh and reset your mind, body and soul!

Class begins with gentle stretches and moves into a long, guided relaxation. It’s not meditation and anyone can do it! Just let yourself be guided.

Taught by Ahna Machan of Audacious Changes, this class is offered the 4th Sunday of every month.

No prior registration required.

Fall is a time of transition from the fire and heat of summer into the cool, dry autumn season.

9 – 10:15am Breath-Centered YIN Yoga

Summer's End YIN Yoga

In August, the large masses of berries, which, when in flower, had attracted many wild bees, gradually assumed their bright velvety crimson hue, and by their weight again bent down… ~Henry David Thoreau

A Soothing Antidote for Your Active Lifestyle

As summer wanes, our August practice will be one of ease. We’ll move through gentle poses that don’t create heat, but allow for lengthening and grounding. Focused on our breath, our sequence will guide our bodies and minds to seamlessly transition from summer’s heat to the upcoming cool of Fall; an opportunity to adjust our lifestyle and our practice. This class is perfect for all levels of yoga practitioners.

Pre-registration not required for YIN Yoga, but it’s helpful to know if you plan to attend.

Please contact [email protected] with questions or for more information.

About Jeanne Startzman

Jeanne of Yoga Spring Asana will be leading us in this breath-centered Yin yoga class, which incorporates more relaxing floor postures. Yin Yoga is a great way to take some rest with your yoga at the end of the month. Class size is kept small for full benefit and are attended by 4 – 10 students, on average.

We would love to see you!

About Yoga Spring Asana

Yoga Spring Asana’s teaching format has evolved to one that encourages students to choose from a variety of specific-focus sessions, workshops, series, and events. You can select or request offerings that most directly speak to your heart, interest, needs, and budget.

No matter what the focus or experience level, options are offered throughout the instruction that can modify a pose so you can choose the adaptation that best meets the needs of your age, body, mood, and energy level on that day.

For private sessions, Jeanne encourages student reflection and participation. She will discuss and outline the poses with the student, that will enrich the student’s physical wellness and promote a quiet mind.

Nurture Your Body, Open Your Heart, Quiet Your Mind

Yoga Spring Asana provides a quiet, peaceful setting where yogis can nurture their bodies, open their hearts, and quiet their minds. Continuous breath-and-body awareness is practiced, and postures are approached with compassion and acceptance, rather than judgement.

Jeanne encourages each of you to come enjoy a session soon, and experience the benefits of Yoga for yourself!
