New Moon Yoga Nidra
with Judy Farniok
Sunday, June 13th
3:30 -5:00 pm
The New Moon opens us to new beginnings. It's a time to start fresh, and to set new intentions or goals for ourselves. Following the phases of the moon may allow you to be more in harmony with the natural world, allowing for a natural cycle of new beginnings, growth, manifestation and letting go.
Yoga Nidra is a guided meditative practice incorporating conscious relaxation where you can explore the various states of wakefulness, dream and deep sleep. This is an ancient yogic practice often referred to as ‘yogic sleep’ or the ‘sleep of sages’ but we practice with the intention of remaining awake and aware. The practice can leave you feeling deeply rested with a sense of improved physical vitality.
The practice will begin with a focus on breath and gentle movement preparing the body and mind for the final stages of savasana (corpse pose) and guided meditation. The power of Sankalpa will be integrated into the practice manifesting your own personal intention. A Sankalpa (sanskrit meaning ‘intention’) is a tool meant to harness the will helping to harmonize mind and body and planting the seeds for your ‘hearts desire’.
This practice will require whatever props you need to be comfortable in Savasana. Blankets, bolsters, pillows and an eye pillow are often used.
