Psychodynamic Yoga with Akiva Daube — Monday nights
January 14, 2016 @ 1:39 pm EST
Classes are Mondays from 6 – 7 pm and cost $15.
In this on-hour class, students will be verbally guided into a deep state of gentle movement, breath and body sensing known as Yoga Nidra (literally “sleep of the yogi”). No experience, skill, discipline or flexibility is required. Yoga Nidra is an ancient Tantric Yoga practice that induces physical, mental and emotional relaxation while one remains alert and awake. It is also a profound experience of self-inquiry designed to facilitate awakening to one’s true nature. In this natural state of consciousness, even though the world is dim and relaxation is deep—as in deep sleep—there remains an inward lucidity that can be recalled later.
