In this workshop we will learn how to use iRest Yoga Nidra on our own, both on and off your mat. iRest Yoga Nidra meditation can be done by anyone, you don’t need to feel like you have to “turn off” your thoughts. Our thoughts guide us in our lives and are needed in order to function, so why would we want to turn them off. In fact, in iRest we use our thoughts, sensations, emotions to guide ourselves back to our deeper selves, which is always present. In this way we are able to use iRest in each moment in our lives.

Join us for another evening with Indu Arora in which she share more of her deep knowledge about the practice of Mudras. Nothing has the greatest power to heal but Self!
Mudra science has been kept as a sacred secret for ages. It is time to explore subtle ways of healing and integrating all possible tools we can to clear pranic pathways, trigger the innate intelligence to allow one to be established in Self.
Anyone who can breathe can do Mudras! Mudra means a gesture, seal, pose and lock. They are nonverbal modes of communication. When we understand the ancient yogic art and science of gesturing and sealing vital pranic energies everything becomes alive. It becomes filled with messages and it communicates with us the secrets untold. Mudra is one of the most powerful tools to deepen the practice of yoga, self-awareness and healing.
iRest Yoga Nidra is a form of mindfulness meditation. In this hour long class you will lay down and get comfortable with your pillow and blanket.

All the while; your body, mind and spirit will be gaining the deep benefits of Yoga Nidra.
