Fall 2019 Session
Join Sho Higuchi, self proclaimed savasana connoisseur, in this special exploration into Yoga Nidra, a unique meditation done on the back in savasana that promotes deep relaxation and healing.
Yoga Nidra, often called the art of conscious relaxation, is an ancient yogic technique which has been used for centuries in the yoga culture. It is now gaining popularity in the west and has been used to remove the deep rooted tensions and stresses stored in the physical, mental, and emotional bodies. Scientific evidence shows that Yoga Nidra practice may improve physical and mental health through the down regulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and the sympathetic nervous system, which helps promote concentration and brain health, reduce stress and anxiety, and provide relief from pain, insomnia, depression, and many other modern disease states.
This training will focus on the science and technique of Yoga Nidra meditation, and provide you with the tools to guide yourself and others through this healing practice. It is great for teachers looking to learn new therapeutic techniques, practitioners who would like to deepen their meditation practice, those who would like to learn how to heal themselves and others, or anyone who wants to sleep better at night and learn how to truly relax. The training will include an introduction to the Chakra system.
Sho is a passionate instructor who teaches from a place of loving kindness and compassion. He is best known for his fun, playful, and soothing style. Sho believes that the purpose of our lives is to be happy and share this happiness with others. This shines through in all his classes – you can expect to reconnect with your body, mind, heart, and soul in a gentle and nurturing environment.
Upon completion, you will receive 20 CE credit hours.
