Mondays 7:00-8:00 pm
Join our team of meditation teachers to be guided on an inner journey of peace and expansiveness.
Each session will begin with a guided relaxation or Yoga Nidra* practice, followed by seated meditation - partly guided, as well as time resting in silence.
Our experienced teachers draw from their many years of practice, study, and teaching to support you in the not-so-little miracle of slowing down, unwinding the mind, and discovering the stillness within.
We have everything you need to be comfortable: cushions, blankets, and chairs. No experience necessary. The teaching will be equally suited to beginners and long-time practitioners.
It's always easier to practice together! Plus, the benefits of practice are amplified when we come together in intentional community. What the world needs now is clear hearts and restful minds! So come change the world with us, one breath at a time!
What is Yoga Nidra?
Sometimes known as "yogic sleep," Yoga Nidra is a practice of conscious relaxation that counters the swirling busy-ness of everyday life and relieves muscular, mental, and emotional tension. Often we seek rest and rejuvenation through distraction, but true restoration comes with awareness, in a state between sleep and waking, where the senses get a break and the subtle layers increase receptivity. Through Yoga Nidra, you'll be gently guided to rotate consciousness throughout the body and learn to reset to natural awareness. Join the Ojas community and learn to rest more effectively, increase receptivity, and restore balance.
