Aminda Courtwright – Creating a Powerful Sankalpa: Yoga Nidra Practice
Friday, February 8, 2013 from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM (MST)
Creating a Powerful Sankalpa – Yoga Nidra Practice 2.This workshop is 1/2 Lecture 1/2 practice. Participants will first be lead through the process of creating or refining their sankalpa for a deep yoga nidra practice. After everyone has a working sankalpa you will experience an extended Yoga Nidra practice. Yoga Nidra literally means “yogic sleep” but more precisely it is a deep state of relaxation with a subtle touch of awareness that fully releases tensions and rejuvenates body, mind and spirit. Much like modern hypnosis your brainwaves drop into the alpha and theta state which is the state of creativity and expansiveness. As you progressively enter deeper and subtler brain waves you become more relaxed, integrated, and present. Eventually, you completely shift out of identification with the body, mind and ego and you begin to naturally re-align with spirit, allowing you to effortlessly disengage from restrictive physical, mental and emotional patterning. Here, you are free to create a life that is an expression of higher consciousness, rather than acquired conditioning. By taking the time to create a powerful sankalpa (intention) your yoga Nidra practice takes on profound meaning and becomes a powerful agent for change that is both harmonious and beneficial to your ongoing journey. After the session you will be rejuvenated, every half hour of the state of Nidra is like 4 hours of deep sleep. This is the perfect class to attend during a long weekend of yoga to help you recover and be able to absorb more of the work you are doing. Ideally suited for ALL students, accessible to the complete novice, to those with limitations and yet still profound for the long time/advanced student. Come prepare to lie in Savasana (corpse pose) for close to an hour…the more support you have the deeper you go!
