We will open with warming oil, intention and a full body self-massage. You may bring a candle to light your inner and outer altar. Ayurvedic massage with oil (abhyanga) can be seen as a daily love offering to your beloved. The benefits of a daily practice of oil massage include improved circulation and lymph drainage, improved sleep, supple and resilient skin and hair, and improved vitality and health.

We slip into a series of restorative yin postures where we use props to fill in all the spaces at the edge of relaxation and release, accompanied by singing bowls and the Reconnective healing frequencies. These postures, all held for 3-5 minutes, activate Meridian lines and their corresponding organs to stimulate healing and lengthening of the connective tissue. This practice promotes stillness and a meditative state.

“Stillness is a gateway into who we are.”

Our practice will culminate in a sacred and light activated yoga nidra. Yoga Nidra means psychic sleep and is a lying guided meditation. Yoga Nidra Trance is yoga nidra accompanied by the Reconnective healing frequencies and designed to slow brain waves, reconnect fragmented parts, produce profound insight and healing. On hour of nidra is like 3 hours of sleep.

“Nidra is a systematic method of inducing complete mental, emotional and physical relaxation. It means psychic sleep, where conscious intellectual mind disappears, subconscious mind becomes active and unconscious mind merges with the subconscious, and there we have no concept of time and space.”
— Swami Satyananda Saraswati
