Yoga Nidra:

The Art of Relaxation

With Gena Foreman

Saturday, November 16th

6:00pm - 7:30pm



Location: Lotus Garden Yoga: 9739-B Fair Oaks Blvd. 

Yoga Nidra is an ancient method of guided relaxation practiced in the lying position that systematically guides one into a state of conscious deep relaxation. In this state, the body and mind are deeply connected through the parasympathetic nervous system allowing the body to recharge and rejuvenate. One hour of practice provides the rest of four hours sleep and awakens the healing intelligence of the body. Other benefits include:

• soothes your autonomic nervous system
• enhances your mental focus and attention span
• improves your creativity and whole brain functioning
• gives you more ease and peace of mind in daily life
• helps create new neural pathways in your brain leading to healthy habits & routines

Yoga Nidra relaxation is very easy and you can enjoy the benefits after one session. No experience necessary. No asana.

Lay down. Let go. Silence the mind. Rest the body.

Join us for "Nia", a unique blend of dance, yoga, Chi Gong and Aikido, that promotes energy, strength and well-being.
Done barefoot, Nia's grounded approach maximizes body efficiency and teaches you to consciously move in a gentler way. The result is improved muscle tone, increased flexibility and endurance, and a calmer mind.
Nia blends the expressiveness of dance, the power of martial arts, and the wisdom of the healing arts. The guided practice creatively encourages students to move in ways that are natural to their bodies. Classes are adaptable to every age and fitness level.
Your instructor this month is Kelly Fitzgerald-Holland. Kelly holds a black belt in The Nia Technique. Since 1994, Kelly has been studying African-inspired dance and other movement forms, including belly dance, Sufi techniques, tribal-dance, tai chi, and yoga. She began her study and practice of Nia in 1999, and was certified as an instructor in the Nia Technique in 2004.
