Yoga Training for an Elevated Rest

introductory yoga classes near me
Yoga Nidra is a state of consciousness between wake and sleep where the participant is deeply, physically relaxed but still mentally aware. This sacred practice has been around for thousands of years and when combined with the use of Aerial silks will aid the participants in getting into an elevated state of relaxation. Aerial Nidra can assist one to reach a deeper sense of the self, divine consciousness, and further self-realization(s).

Benefits of Aerial Nidra Yoga:

  • Stabilizes the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems
  • Calms the central nervous system
  • Aids in relaxation on the plane of feelings/emotions
  • Supports physical relaxation
  • Tractions out the spine
  • Balances brain hemispheres
  • Enhances mood states, helping with anxiety and depression

Strong Women


Strong women don’t care what other people are doing to make themselves happy.  Instead, they take time to look within themselves for acceptance and love. 

 

There is something truly remarkable about women who know their worth and don’t settle for mediocre treatment. 

 

Those brave enough to stick around and get to know strong women come to appreciate and admire the intelligence, honesty, and unique perspective they have on the world. 

 

Strong women have strong tribes. They surround themselves with other incredible souls, whose minds and hearts are open to receiving life’s many graces. 

 

Strong women are proactive and often strong-willed. They find success in every area of their lives because they accept nothing less. 

 

They see good in the world because they connect deeply with the good in themselves.
