Yoga Nidra Workshop

Are you over-scheduled, burned out, seeking change or just plain tired of being tired? Come find out how adding “non-doing” to your to-do list can help.

This is a wonderful workshop for sensitive and soulful caregivers (parents, teachers, grandparents, healthcare workers, etc), who are looking for an effortless way to add restorative practices to their own self-care routine.

It’s especially perfect for people who’ve yet to master the fine art of relaxation – but who aren’t ready to give up trying!

During the Workshop you will:

* Practice Yoga Nidra, one of the easiest and most effective meditation practices.

* Find out about foods that support sleep and leave with a wild herb that supports lucid dreaming.

* Hear how Asha used this practice to transform her relationship with her daughter.

More about Yoga Nidra (Psychic Sleep)

Yoga Nidra has been described as the yoga of non-doing or the yoga of stillness. After 15-20 minutes of gentle physical postures, we just--- lie--- down and stop doing. Sounds amazing, doesn’t it?! That’s because it IS! During an extended savasana, we’ll use a series of breath, body and awareness techniques to guide the brainwaves down towards sleep states, where we naturally begin to find distance from our thoughts.

If you have trouble enjoying a seated meditation, you might just love this. You can’t do it wrong, and most participants experience a deep sense of relaxation.

Yoga Nidra feels so good because it IS so good for you. It lowers cortisol, while increasing GABA, serotonin, dopamine and melatonin, and mitigates the chronic effects of stress on the nervous system.

It is deeply restorative and has been said that 40 minutes of the practice is as restorative as 3 hours of sleep.

About Asha:

Throughout her career, Asha has supported people of all ages in hospital, museum and school settings.

She currently teaches yoga at Ceremony and at the Denver School of Science and Technology and sees the role of teaching as an opportunity to deepen her own experience of yoga.

Asha studied yoga in Florida, Colorado and India (That’s right folks, India. So you know she’s gonna be a legit teacher). She’s also a Reiki Master and a jokemonger. If that wasn’t enough, in 2018 she graduated from a Waldorf-inspired Teaching Program and received her Early Childhood Teaching Certificate. Asha practices conscious sleep daily, and when in the waking state, she enjoys art, spending time outdoors and making people laugh!
