YOGA with NIKKI
YOGA SLOW/ iREST YOGA NIDRA & MEDITATION
(All levels welcome)
This yoga class is welcome for all levels. I say yoga ‘slow’ because most classes say ‘flow’ and in my personal practice I am learning to slow things down. We live in a fast paced world and we work in an even speedier one so this class is going to give you an environment to work on slowing things down.
Imagine traditional yoga as a slow meditative quality that ends with a long yoga nap. Read more below on benefits of Yoga Nidra and more about iRest Yoga Nidra.
What to bring: Yoga Mat, Blanket, Notebook/Pen, Water bottle, Comfortable Clothing
Anyone can do YOGA NIDRA
Yoga nidra, or yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is an immensely powerful meditation technique, and one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain. While the practitioner rests comfortably in savasana (corpse pose), this systematic meditation takes you through the pancha maya kosha (five layers of self), leaving you with a sense of wholeness. No longer do you have to dread spending hours sitting on the floor waiting for liberation. Here are five benefits of developing a yoga nidra practice.

What is iRest Yoga Nidra?
iRest Yoga Nidra is based on ancient yogic teachings, but made accessible for modern day life. It is designed to bring the healing benefits of yogic and meditative practices to a wide variety of people. iRest can be practiced by anyone, regardless of whether you are a lifelong meditator or if you have never tried meditation before. iRest was developed by Richard Miller, PhD. Richard is a world-renowned spiritual teacher, author, yogic scholar, researcher and clinical psychologist, who has combined traditional yogic practice with Western psychology and neuroscience. He is committed to bringing the healing benefits of iRest to all segments of our population. Richard also founded the iRest Institute, an educational non-profit with the mission of helping people resolve their pain and suffering, and experience deep healing and peace.
