{Sacred Sundays} Meditation – Restorative Yoga Nidra: Light In My Heart

 

Teach me how to trust my heart, my mind, my intuition, my inner knowing, the senses of my body, the blessings of my spirit.  Teach me to trust these things so that I may enter my sacred space and love beyond my fear, and thus walk in balance with the passing of each glorious sun.
Lakota Prayer

YOU are MAGIC 💫🔮✨  {Sacred Sundays} are a place for you to reconnect with yourself, in an intimate and peaceful session of intentional rest.  Melissa will lead you through a restorative session that includes: breath-work (pranayama), flowing into gentle movements (light stretching, simple poses or asanas, or bindu yoga), and then moving into a guided seated meditation or lying down (savasana).  To further your experience, a journaling or creative art exercise will be used to explore your natural self.  And ending with a lying down yoga nidra session (yogic sleep).  Each session allows for a sacred circle of sharing, deep inner listening, and release with healing.  Experience peace and reconnect with your heart.

Mindfulness Meditation -Sacred Sundays

What is yoga nidra?
Learn to be awake yet asleep ~ bliss for your brain.  Yoga nidra is a yogic technique which guides us into a state of deeply restful meditative awareness and inner stillness.  Many studies have shown that a 20min yoga nidra session can be the equivalent to a 3hr sleep!  This will be a longer 40-50mins restorative meditation where you will experience emotional, mental, and physical relaxation and peace.  Learn more on our Yoga Nidra page.

The Universe is all that is, or ever was, or ever will be.  Our contemplations of the cosmos stir us.  There’s a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation as if a distant memory of falling from a great height.  We know we are approaching the grandest of mysteries.  The cosmos is within us.  We are made of star stuff.
Carl Sagan
