Join Heather for this special Holiday mindful treat. Yoga Nidra, sometimes also referred to as “yogic sleep”, is a form a guided mediation which allows you to transcend to a place where your body is in a state of sleep whilst your mind is conscious and alert. This 60 minute class begins with movement in preparation for a lengthy savasana, or supine rest where the teacher speaks to guide you through a sequence of visual and cognitive instruction offering the opportunity to clearly see and set deep intentions.
Nidra is designed to induce a deep state of relaxation and has been known to be a positive benefit to certain common ailments such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, headaches and a whole host of other stress induced afflictions. This class is accessible and welcoming of all levels.
Community Yin w/Massage Fundraiser in Support of the Barho Family
Friday, March 1st
We've gathered some extra hands to hold a very special class on March 1st in support of the Barho family who were affected by a home fire claiming the lives of all 7 of their children. Along with many others within our thoughtful small business community, we are feeling the need to support and connect in any way possible. The best way we know how is to give our time in service with the space we hold. Our regular Friday evening class will be replaced with this restorative practice guided by Shabnam Sobhani & Lori-Anne Coffin with additional assists from Catie Mason & Alicia Wright. Over 75 minutes, students will be led through a series of mindful, yin style postures while receiving plenty of hands-on massage to facilitate support & release in the body. The rate for this type of class at Pramana is usually $40 but we're opening the door to any size donation your heart is able to give. 100% of funds raised will go to the Go Fund Me campaign already in place for the family. Space is very limited so pre-registration is required. We look forward to meeting you under our small roof for this mission of compassion.
