Yoga Nidra presents an important time to rejuvenate the mind and body, especially as we continue to navigate challenging times.

Yoga Nidra or "sleep with awareness" is for EVERYONE and offers a fully guided, systematic method of complete relaxation, holistically addressing the body and mind's physiological, neurological, and subconscious needs. It can also help restore mental peace and encourage general wellness while easing:

* Lack of energy from a busy life and an overactive mind.
* Depression, anxiety, and stress.
* Insomnia.
* And more.

After a short lecture, Miriam Zernis will skillfully guide you to finding a direct experience of this wonderful restorative practice.

No yoga experience necessary. Please have a yoga mat, blanket, neck pillow (or a rolled-up towel), and eye covering on hand. Also eat lightly before or after, dim the lights and turn off all devices.


Miriam's voice is extremely soothing and relaxation comes easy listening to it. Her calm, nurturing energy added so much to my experience along with her voice which is mesmerizing!

Miriam is a passionate, knowledgeable teacher with so much to share. Yoga Nidra is one of her strengths for sure.
