Approaching the longest night of the year in the dark season, we celebrate the ability to rest and nourish the energy within.
This event will combine Yoga Nidra (Wakeful Sleep Meditation) led by Elisa Piscitelli, E-RYT followed by beautiful music performed by Lisa Labella.
With winter solstice only days away, along with holiday preparation, we find ourselves at odd with the natural rhythm of life. The night is guiding us toward turning inward, relaxing and nurturing our tired minds while society is promoting excess! We'll take a few hours to sink into our well-being and detach from the allure of holiday frenzy.
Yoga Nidra is a practice steeped in body relaxation and mindfulness. After some gentle movements to warm the body and stretch, everyone will settle into a warm, cozy space on their mats. Elisa will then gently guide the meditation through different levels of awareness starting with scanning the physical body and eventually diving deeper into visualization and breathing techniques. After some silent rest, we will then reawaken the physical body to rise into Sukhasana (comfortable seated position) and enjoy the truly gorgeous sounds performed by Lisa. She will be utilizing her voice, bowls and tuning forks to create a cohesive and meditative listening experience to help send us off into the winter night.
The studio will be warm, candlelit and comfortable. Mild essential oils will be diffused throughout the event, hot tea available and more.
Space is limited. Everyone is welcome to bring their own blanket(s) or other items of comfort as long as it doesn't take up space beyond the mat. We are equipped to offer 2-3 blankets per person. Bolsters are available for those who need further support. Nidra is practiced lying down flat in savasana but some modifications are fine if this is an issue.
