Winter Solstice: Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra for the Holidays

On the longest night of the year, and on the eve of the holiday season and winter break for families, join Erin for this 2-hour restorative yoga and yoga nidra evening.

A 75-minute Yin Yoga practice will be followed by Yoga Nidra, the yoga of sleep. 45 Minutes of Yoga Nidra relaxation is said to be equal to 4 hours of deep sleep. Restore your nervous system and enter the Winter replenished.

Autumn Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra

Autumn is an especially appropriate time for self-care and reflection as we harvest summer's last bounty and "put away" some energy while letting go of what we no longer need.
Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep, is a practice of complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation. 30 minutes of yoga nidra is the equivalent of a 4-hour sleep!

This 2-hour special event will provide the space to reflect, relax and renew for the longer nights of Autumn.

$20-40 Sliding Scale
