Feldenkrais and Yoga Nidra for Ultimate Relaxation

Thursday, September 19 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

First experience a Feldenkrais® lesson to increase self-awareness by learning to mindfully move with less effort and to reduce pain from      orthopedic, neurological or other stress related conditions. You will be taught to become aware of your body’s ultimate positioning for deep relaxation. Then you will be led through the verbal instructions for Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep. This is not physical exercise. It’s easy and done lying down.   Wear comfortable clothing.

Yoga nidra  is the ultimate relaxation. It is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, in which the body is completely relaxed, and you become systematically and increasingly aware of your inner world by following a set of verbal instructions. It is easy.  It is usually practiced lying down in what is called savasana (corpse pose) but can also be done while sitting in a chair.

This is not physical exercise. It combines the best of stress management, relaxation training, meditation and guided imagery.  Anyone at any age can do Yoga Nidra.

To Participate:

Register at

Wear comfortable clothes.  Bring a yoga mat if you have one and any props that you need to lie on the ground comfortably; a thin pillow for under the head, a blanket if you tend to get cold.  The yoga studio has some mats, blankets and bolsters, but not enough for all.

According to the Felzer Institute, 62% of America adults say they need more forgiveness their lives.  A normal aspect of aging is to reflect on the act and the ability to let go of residual pain is important for mental, physical and emotional health.  Past grievances against others and the self, impact stress and quality of life.

The capacity to forgive is essential for overall well-being and necessary for peace of mind. This workshop will reveal the steps.

CONSCIOUS AGING:  Navigating Life’s Third Act

Coping with the physical changes and losses in you and the ones you love, managing the ups and downs of constantly changing circumstances, and living with the knowledge that you will experience the loss of others and ultimately face death yourself, can get overwhelming.  Common misperceptions about aging affect attitudes and ultimately quality of life.

Learn about the Conscious Aging Movement.  Explore issues of love and intimacy, loss and identity later in life. Discuss the latest advances in medical science, new research in psychology and the wisdom of ancient healers that can help one to flourish later in life.
