We will start our Yoga Nidra Series at Maya Yoga in the Crossroads District, downtown Kansas City, Missouri on Sunday, June 12, 2016 at 2:00 pm. This practice will take 90 minutes. The classes will be designed for all students (no yoga experience necessary) as a guided meditation experience.
All students will explore and develop intentions; experience body sensitivities, breath and energy awareness. You will also develop and refine a systematic neutralization of negative body sensations and stress, negative feelings and emotions, negative beliefs, images and memories. This practice accumulates in a deeper experience of joy and well-being with the development of freedom from the sense of separation generated by the senses and the mind. You will ultimately learn how to experience peace amidst the changing circumstances of life once you develop a consistent practice of the Yoga Nidra.
Students can expect to lie down or sit comfortably during the practice supported by blankets and props. The benefits of a Yoga Nidra practice are: decreased stress, anxiety, fear and depression; decreased insomnia and sleep disturbances; decreased perception of chronic and acute pain; improved interpersonal relations; increased energy levels; increased sense of control in their lives; more confidence and joy in their lives and a greater sense of peace and well-being.
Each Second Sunday, we will gather for the practice of the Yoga Nidra. Starting in June, we will start our journey through the chakras, and our experiences and shared teachings will be available through the blog.
