Every quarter, in place of her regular Wednesday evening yoga class, instructor Amy Prais offers this guided meditation called iRest Yoga Nidra. Anyone can do Yoga Nidra–all you need to be able to do is lie down comfortably (or sit in a chair, if you prefer).
We provide mats, blankets, cushions, chairs. Classroom opens at 5:45 PM for those who wish to come stretch, move around, or relax and do some quiet reflection beforehand. We recommend taking advantage of this time to help get maximum benefit from your meditation.
iRest Yoga Nidra was developed by a clinical psychologist with a background in yoga in order to help people address traumas, injuries, and conditions such as PTSD, anxiety, addiction, insomnia, and more. However, even if you don’t suffer from such conditions, Yoga Nidra can be a powerful tool to help you overcome an obstacle or realize a goal.
The medical community is beginning to recognize quantifiable benefits to a practice of meditation. While meditation may often seem esoteric or mystical, in fact it is a simple (yet challenging) discipline that brings awareness to how the mind and body interact. Not only can it help us detach and let go of stress, it can teach us how thought patterns lock us into cycles of injury, bad habits or reactions, and be a powerful tool to help overcome and break through.
Regular students may use their punch cards; walk-ins are only $15!
