Yoga Nidra with Shambhu
Yoga Nidra, which translates to "yogic sleep," allows the participants to transcend self-created perceptions and limitations through the meditative experience.
Developed by Yogi Amrit Desai and Dr. Kamini Desai and based on both ancient teachings and modern psychology, Yoga Nidra is a paradigm shift in Self-Realization.
Knowledge of yoga posture or flexibility is not required, nor is a mastery of meditation. Participants will be asked to lie down and listen to simple guidance. Through a unique combination of alert awareness and profound relaxation, Yoga Nidra works by immersing the participant in the healing rhythms of the alpha state. Here, you simultaneously access the power of the logical left-brain and the intuitive right brain to align the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems back to homeostasis.
Come comfortably dressed, lightly fed, and mostly decaffeinated, bringing with you any props like yoga mats, a small pillow and blanket.
Yoga History and Philosophy with Shambhu
Begin your journey through thought and time. The culture and history of Yoga cannot be separated. All Yoga in the West today comes from a tradition of multiple competing and complimentary ways of thinking and thousands of years of Indian classical texts.
Modern grand masters of Yoga, and their well-known yoga styles, are part of an ancient tradition spanning millennia. This course is designed as an in-depth introduction to implicit philosophies foundational to all Yoga. It will address where, when and how Yoga was developed and how it evolved into what it is today.
Cost $250/per person Friday evening - Sunday afternoon. (Includes your choice of classes/workshops and kirtan. Without kirtan $200/per person).
*As with all of our bhakti offerings, cost is a suggested offering based on travel and lodging expenses.
