YogaNidra_(1)Pranayama & Yoga Nidra

While Pranayama is the regulation of breath, that allows the energy (prana) or life-force to flow effortlessly through the body, Yoga nidra is divine sleep or deep relaxation, practiced in a state of shavasana, to consciously allow the body and mind to relax. 

Our 60-minute combination of Pranayama and Yoga Nidra, is a wonderful way to let go of the days stresses and train yourself to respond to relaxation, thus returning the body to its natural state of being.  Through practice the energy within the body is regulated, the body relaxes, and you begin to experience calmness, clarity and the aspects of prana which are love, wisdom, light and energy.  It helps relieve stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, migraines, asthma, hypertension etc.  It also promotes clarity of mind, general health and harmony.
