Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra provides a path for rediscovery of our true nature and the many benefits that can be realized from its practice.

Yoga Nidra is an ancient practice with incredible relevance in the modern world. With an excess of tension and worries, discomforts and uneasiness, fear and phobias, our students need a vehicle to connect deeply to their true nature, to peace, health, and self-awareness.

This increased self-awareness helps us to remain detached and calm amidst the chaos of our daily lives.
