Enjoy the benefits of 'yogic sleep' now on two nights at Dream Yoga Studio - weekly on Sundays and monthly on Fridays. It's oh, so relaxing!
Weekly on Sundays:
Yoga Nidra: Stretch & Restore
7:00 - 8:15 PM
June 1 - June 29
$85 for 5-week session. Fees are prorated from the time you join. Drop-Ins Welcome ($22)
Yoga Nidra is a deep relaxation technique that’s been proven to reduce stress levels and promote mental clarity & peace of mind. As the pace of modern life increases exponentially, the timeless practice of Yoga Nidra has come to the foreground as an extremely effective tool for living with greater health and ease in the modern age. It’s an accessible form of yoga that can help you balance an active yoga practice and lifestyle.
Based in the tradition of compassionate self-inquiry, Yoga Nidra takes you through the koshas, or layers of being, to activate your body’s relaxation response and promote healing/transformation on all levels — physical, energetic, mental, emotional & spiritual. Studies show that, although the mind remains conscious during the practice, the levels of relaxation achievable during YN are deeper than regular sleep.
Each class begins with gentle movement & closes with a reflection to mindfully re-enter the world. A regular Yoga Nidra practice has been proven to help alleviate stress, anxiety, insomnia and depression. It calms the nervous system, promotes a positive outlook, and lifts your spirits. The visualization & sensory awareness used during YN directly communicate with your subconscious mind — where real and lasting changes begin!
Come to experience what 45 minutes of shavasana — lying down as you’re guided to deeper & deeper states of relaxation—can do for you! Absolutely NO yoga or meditation experience needed. Wear comfortable clothing for gentle movements to prepare for this guided experience.
Students who do Yoga Nidra say they LOVE the way they feel afterward — noticeably looser, freer…and a little more enlightened too!

Yoga Nidra literally means “yogic sleep.” Studies have shown that although the mind remains conscious during the practice, the levels of relaxation and healing achievable during Yoga Nidra are deeper even than regular sleep.
If you suffer from hypertension, stress, diabetes, migraine, asthma, ulcers, digestive disorders, skin diseases, depression or insomnia, the practice of Yoga Nidra can benefit you!
*Ease muscular, emotional & mental tension
This workshop will begin with gentle yoga practice to warm and relax the body. Then you’ll lie back on your mat to be guided systematically through increasingly deep levels of physical relaxation. As all tension leaves the body, the subconscious layers of the mind also begin to open. The techniques employed during Yoga Nidra such as visualization and sensory awareness enable you to bypass the conscious mind and enter a pre-dream state, which is the birthplace of your own creativity. It is in the subconscious is where real and lasting changes begin! Absolutely NO yoga or meditation experience needed. Wear comfortable clothing for gentle movements to prepare for this guided experience.
