Yoga Nidra: Deep Relaxation Meditation with Joy Kirstin
at Radiance, in the heart of downtown Lancaster
Thursday evening, September 12, 2013, 6:30-8pm
Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) helps us release long-held subconscious feelings and beliefs that give rise to self-destructive patterns, and assists the nervous system in relaxing deeply. Rooted in ancient yogic teachings, this guided meditation is practiced while lying down, and has been clinically proven to assist with insomnia, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and PTSD. It facilitates an effortless entry into a deep meditative state where your wholeness and authenticity await. Practitioners can continue to reap the benefits at home using a CD recording.
Beginners and experienced practitioners welcome; no movement involved. Dress in comfortable, loose-fitting clothing, and if possible, bring a pillow and blankets. The evening will include a brief explanation of Yoga Nidra, a one hour practice, and time for questions.
This class will be held at Radiance, 9 W Grant St., Lancaster, PA 17603, across the cobblestones from historic Central Market. Cost for this workshop is $20.00. To register, call Radiance at 717-290-1517, or stop in.
