A gentle and guided meditation session to bring you gently into the energy of the festival. Take time first thing in the morning for a self check in, a guided relaxation and time to reflect on the beauty of what is unfolding.

The story of Rama, Sita and Hanuman is a breathtaking adventure across ancient India. The Ramayana has a little bit of everything. Romance, heartbreak, epic battles, terrifying villains and noble heroes keep this story moving at a relaxing but fun pace.

The Power of Tranquility
Limited Capacity full

We will start the yoga nidra practice by quieting our busy minds and then move into a meditative, dream-like state, gradually resting in a space between awake and asleep. In this tranquil state, the brain waves slow down and a gentle joy and a deep relaxation can emerge.

Yoga nidra cools off the fight/flight nervous system and allows us to go deeper, excavating the knowledge and power within.

We stay in a comfortable savasana position most of the class, so make sure you bring the clothing, blankets, and/or props you need to stay warm and comfortable.

Rather, we can learn from our “stuff” and relate to one another by developing a greater understanding that we are all living a human experience and we are not alone in our struggles. We will begin the practice with a sharing circle meant to create a safe space for truth to be revealed. We will then shift our awareness towards the spiritual, physical and mental bodies as we explore yin postures that are crafted to provide a deep release of tension and negativity. We will end with calming breath work, a nurturing meditation practice and group chant. You won't want to miss this opportunity to let go of unwanted emotions and welcome a deeper sense of acceptance and self-love.
