Restore & Relax with Yoga Nidra at Yoga Upstairs


Imagine experiencing a journey to the most profound level of relaxation possible.

On September 20th we’re thrilled to welcome guest teacher Maggie Mellor to guide you through the experience of Yoga nidra, an extraordinary path to deepest parts of the true self.

You might wonder…

What is Yoga Nidra?

It’s a lesser known practice referred to as “Yogic sleep”. It’s an ancient method used by swamis and yogis for centuries as way to explore the deepest state of sleep, but consciously.

A yoga nidra practice typically entails a series of “subtle exercises”, or exercises without movement that will prepare you for a journey through the upper chakras and body system.

Through this technique you’ll systematically navigate your own whole being. On a physical level you’ll discover the condition of your musculature, joint system, and nervous system–all while lying down very comfortably. On a subtle level, you’re given an opportunity to dive deeply into your true emotional and mental state without reaction or judgement.

“Yoga Nidra is the wisdom that rests within the shadow of all other forms of yoga” -Imran

Practitioners often report feelings of interconnectedness with the Universe while in this lucid state between waking and unconscious sleep.

Through a yoga nidra practice it’s possible to heal from:

  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Bodily tension and chronic aches
  • Recurring pain from injury
  • Psychological wounds or trauma

Benefits of yoga nidra can include:

  • Reduced stress
  • Improved regular sleep
  • Overall increased sense of joy, peace, and well-being

The beauty of this profound practice is that it’s available to anyone. No prior experience with yoga or meditation are required to enjoy yoga nidra. All props are provided at Yoga Upstairs during this workshop. Comfortable, loose-fitting, breathable clothing is recommended.
