After a busy summer, come join Julie and your fellow practitioners for a few hours of meditation practices. A short talk will be given around the nature of the mind and meditation. The rest of the time will be experiential. Meditation experiences will include movement practices accessible to everyone, pranayama, meditative kriyas (energy work involving some combination of breath, sound, and movement), and seated meditation. This will be a wonderful opportunity to find your center and remind yourself of the ways you can return there again and again.

What is Yoga Nidra? Yoga Nidra is a method of guided relaxation and meditative self-inquiry that can take place resting on one’s back, sitting in a chair, or even through slow paced movement.

Each class will incorporate some gentle yoga to help the body release tension and a long 35-minute guided Yoga Nidra practice.
Through visualization and guided relaxation, an experienced facilitator will support you in releasing layers of habitual tension in the body and mind. This process allows a person to access a state of awareness and realm of possibility that lies beyond habitual physical, emotional and/or belief patterns, clearing space for a new and more resilient way of being.

Rooted in the Vedas, Yoga Nidra has been practiced throughout the world for over 1,000 years. Current research has found that a regular practice can effectively support things like:
– Resiliency and moving through creative blocks
– Pain management
– Emotional wellness
– Healing from illness
– Better sleep

She is also a Certified Yoga Therapist with the International Association of Yoga Therapy and a teacher of yoga and somatic based education for over 25 years.
