GATEWAY TO THE SOUL (Yoga Nidra+The Koshas) DATE: Nov. 25-Dec. 23 TIME: 9:00-11:00am LOCATION: King Fir Lodge, Fernie BC (Full access to the outdoor hot tub) COST: $175 for all 5 sessions or $40 for one TEACHER: Heather Ivany What is Yoga Nidra? Yoga Nidra is a transformative practice of deep relaxation and mediative inquiry. How Do you practice Yoga Nidra? You literally lie down, make a conscious choice not to move, and rest. Your teacher will audibly guide you through the map of your own body and mind, usually for around 35-50minutes. This can be done in a class or by listening to an audio recording. How Does it work? The practice draws attention inwards, and we learn to surf between the states of wakefulness and sleep (you don't actually sleep-it can be a side effect but it is not the goal). In the state of non-sleep but deep rest the breath balances and becomes quiet, unconscious and conscious aspects of the mind reveal themselves, and we fall into an innate state of deep awareness. It is here that we can begin to experience the deeper aspects of yogic teachings such as feeling our inclusiveness and wholeness, not to mention our true nature which is deeply restful and expansive. Who is it for? Absolutely anyone can practice yoga nidra. It has immense value for those suffering from sleep deprivation trauma. depression anxiety. It’s also perfect for those who have been curious about the deeper states of meditation they have perhaps read about or stumbled across but never been able to recreate. __________ Kosha, a Sanskrit word meaning ‘sheath’ or ‘covering’, describes those elements of being which must be explored, welcomed, balanced and ultimately transcended in order to experience your essential self. In this five-part series, Heather skillfully starts each class with a short talk followed by a practice. Each practice is focused on sensing and uncovering one of the five koshas from which to explore and journey. Once the body is prepped into relaxation and stillness Yoga Nidra will finish and potentially lead you to your innermost being. Yoga Nidra is an ancient practice of guiding one's own awareness through the gross to the subtle bodies of experience to eventually rest fully awakened in the impersonal stream of unbounded consciousness.
