Yoga Nidra: Winter’s Rest | Online Immersion

Join master Teacher Tias little for this Winter Immersion, an opportunity to rest deeply, reset the nervous system, and restore the body’s vital energy as we come toward this year's end.


Course Description

In the winter season and toward year’s end we take time to rest deeply, reset the nervous system, and restore the body’s vital energy. In this yoga nidra practice, we focus specifically on the importance of releasing the cranial tissues and restoring the brain. In yoga nidra, we move from outer to inner, that is from the periphery to the core. We emphasize releasing the peripheral nerves in order to gather awareness into the brain and central nervous system.

What will we explore?

This course emphasizes release of the cranial bones and internalization of the “10 gates” – the body apertures through which sensory information travels. Each class starts with a short investigation of the physiological benefits of deep sleep and insights into the yoga teachings on absorption specifically around the ears, eyes, nasal passages, pelvic floor, and crown of the head. We embody states of deep peace and relaxation through restorative yoga, yoga nidra, and its corollary, savasana.

What will the structure of each session be?

Each session entails approximately 20 – 30 minutes of lecture/meditation, and the remaining time is used for guided practice.
