How is it possible to find stillness when life feels full, busy, or chaotic? iRest Yoga Nidra offers us the tools to meet, greet and welcome sensations in the body, our emotions, as well as thoughts, beliefs, and memories. It supports us in accessing the unchanging part of ourselves, the underlying stillness that is always present, even in the midst of the challenges of daily living.
This series will focus on connecting into an underlying sense of wholeness and well-being that is always present, no matter what life is offering up. Join us to find rest and greater ease amidst life's chaos.
- Cultivate an inner resource that we can access in our daily lives.
- Recognize the unchanging stillness that is always present.
- Rest deeply together through the practice of iRest Yoga Nidra; a wonderful antidote to our busy lives.
- Have an opportunity to discuss together what comes up in practice.
