The spring months are an ideal time for rest and renewal. Yoga Nidra is the perfect means for achieving both. In order to encourage a more regular practice, Taryn will be offering three pop-up Yoga Nidra classes from February to April. During nidra, our brainwaves slow down to the pace we experience when we are dreaming. It’s no wonder, then, that participants frequently fall asleep—our bodies aren’t used to being awake when the mind is this still! A regular nidra practice will enable you to enjoy the benefits of a calmer mind and to carry these blissful states into your waking life.
Learn the foundation stances, kicks and sequences of Kalarippayat, the martial art sister of Yoga.

Each month we will build on the skills practiced in previous classes, but you are welcome to sign up for one, or all! Come and expand your movement repertoire and learn something new!
