About the event

Join  Valerie in Downtown Long Beach for in-person Yoga Nidra! In this  workshop, Valerie will be giving an overview of the practice of yoga  nidra and its purpose and benefits, followed by a 45-minute guided yoga  nidra session.

What is yoga nidra? Yoga nidra is a conscious  state of deep relaxation and awareness. In this state, we are given  access to restore our abilities to heal by reducing stress and bringing a  newfound sense of clarity and calm. In Sanskrit, nidra means sleep.  However, yoga nidra is distinct from sleeping, dreaming, or even  meditation. Practiced regularly, it is not only restorative but can be  deeply transformative as well. Done lying down with ample cushioning and  support, this practice is quite different from your typical yoga asana  class!

What have people said about the experience? "I  can't believe how quickly time passed, as I completely lost track while I  was being guided deeper into the meditative state by her soothing  voice. All the stress and fatigue I'd been feeling from changes in my  life were lifted completely as I reached an utterly peaceful state; I no  longer felt like anything was wrong! So I honestly couldn't have had a  better experience" - Vikash J.

What do I need to prepare? Prepare your session  with a yoga mat or comfortable surface to lie on, as well as a pillow  and blanket (optional). You may want to bring extra bolsters if you need  back or knee support. The facility provides cushions but the tatami mat  surface is also quite comfortable.
