Deep Peace- Yoga Nidra Drop In Class

Deep Peace - A Yoga Nidra Experience

In this deeply relaxing 60 minute experience you will be guided through the ancient yogic practice of Yoga Nidra or yogic sleep. This relaxation technique induces full body relaxation and a deep meditative state of conciousness. It pacifies the body and quiets the mind by discharging muscular, nervous, mental and emotional tensions.

Participants will need to be able to lie down (or sit if you wish) for 45 minutes. Blankets , mats, cushions and eye bags will be provided.

The last 10 minutes of class will be used to reorient to the world around us and have a cup of tea.


Exploring Yoga Nidra: In this workshop we will start with a powerpoint presentation on this practice, including the stages and benefits, followed by an experience of this relaxing meditation technique."

Yoga and Cancer

Classes will include yoga postures, flowing movements, pranayama (focus on breath) and meditation to help you achieve relaxation and mobility in everyday life.

Yoga has therapeutic benefits by providing cancer survivors an opportunity to gently stretch, build strength, detoxify and deeply relax in a supportive environment. Specific movements along with relaxation techniques are important as it helps relieve stress and helps the efficiency of the immune system.

Classes are suitable for all patients; newly diagnosed, in cancer treatment or recovery. Feel free to bring a friend or family member for additional support. Newcomers to yoga are welcome.
