7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Yoga Nidra is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation. The term Yoga means union or one-pointed awareness, and Nidra means sleep. During the practice of Yoga Nidra, one appears to be asleep, but the consciousness is functioning at a deeper level of awareness. Through the practice of Yoga Nidra we are not only relaxing, but restructuring and reforming our whole personality from within.

The first part of the class explains the theory of Yoga Nidra in yogic and scientific terms followed by the practice of Yoga Nidra. This practice is suitable for all practitioners, all you have to do is to lay down comfortably in Śavāsana, stay awake and listen.

11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Offered IN PERSON for fully vaccination students. 

For most of us, we experience yoga as asana. But asana is only one small part of the yogic path.  Especially in times of difficulty, it can be useful to see how the human experience has been described in ancient texts and remains relevant even today. We’ll discuss important concepts presented in the “Yoga Sutras of Patanjali” and how this wisdom can be utilized to cope with the uncertainty and challenges we’re currently facing.

Register in advance to receive the optional reading assignment.
