Join me for 6 weeks of Mindful Energy Yoga and Yoga Nidra ONLINE!
Winter is upon us and in the event that you feel like tucking in and not going out in the cold, dark evenings (as winter, the season of rest and restoration actually calls us to do!), here’s an opportunity to practice self care in the comfort of your own cozy home!
Here’s a short video describing the benefits of adding energy work to yoga:
Mindful Energy Yoga incorporates Eden Energy Medicine into the practice of gentle, Mindful Yoga, a powerful combination which may help you to:
Restore your energy balance so that you experience more flexibility, both in your physical body and in your mind
Release & remove energy blocks that may have prohibited you from moving your body freely before
Decrease pain - When we combine energy medicine with yoga, it allows a release of stuck energy, which allows you to move through poses with greater ease and comfort. (Even for people who have found yoga to be uncomfortable or inaccessible before, adding the energy medicine could allow movement to occur with much more ease.)
Disclaimer: These practices are offered for you to try on, not as dogma or the “right” answer for you. Ultimately, they are only beneficial if you find them to be useful to you in your own life. It is essential for you to work with your own body; if you have any preexisting conditions or mental or physical concerns, please check with your own health care provider before beginning this or any other exercise program. These practices are NOT a substitute for more traditional physical or mental health care. If your body says NO to anything offered here, please listen to it. This is where the value lies-learning to communicate skillfully with your own body, listening to how it feels, learning what it actually needs rather than relying solely on what someone else is asking you to do. Get to know yourself again!
“Never sacrifice the wisdom of the body for the glory of the pose”
In this series I’ll also add mudras, which are hand gestures used in the yoga tradition to move energy in a specific way throughout the body. More energy work- in your own hands!!
And in week 4 we’ll practice a full length Yoga Nidra for deep rest and healing. More info on yoga Nidra here
Students in my Yoga Nidra classes have reported:
An increase in the quality of restorative rest that they are able to achieve that lasts days or weeks beyond a single practice
The felt sense of 2 to 6 hours of high-quality, deeply restful sleep.
A sense of balance in the nervous system, which allows a more restorative, healing state (Rest and Digest rather than Fight/Flight/Freeze, the root of chronic stress & survival mode)
Relief of pain and anxiety!
In this series, you’ll receive 5 pre-recorded yoga classes ( 60-90 minutes in length) and 1 Yoga Nidra session for deep rest and relaxation. The videos are yours to use as you wish again and again. My intention is for the series to include many of the well known yoga poses so you have a complete series that is well rounded.
In a studio, this class would cost at least $150, but I’m offering it to you for just $79 if you register by January 15. After January 15, the cost goes to $99.
REGISTRATION CLOSES ON JANUARY 21 at Midnight EST.
The class launches Tuesday January 22 and you’ll be sent a new class each Tuesday until February 26. There will be a Zoom call for questions and answers on Monday February 11 at 6 pm EST.
I hope you’ll join us and tap into the power of rest and restoration that the winter season offers- taking care of yourself in the comfort of your own home.
Gift yourself the true wisdom of the winter season so that you are ready to burst forth into bloom when springtime arrives!
