Yin & Yoga Nidra with Muriel Duncan

with Muriel Duncan

Friday April 20 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Yin & Yoga Nidra with Muriel Duncan

Join Muriel for an afternoon of opening and releasing yin yoga followed by yoga nidra.

Yin yoga postures are designed to open up the body by prolonged holds of deep stretching techniques – typically between 1 to 5 minutes in length. These techniques are designed to put both your body and mind in a state of deep relaxation. Yin yoga focus on the connective tissues of the body – tendons, fascia, and ligaments – with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. Often referenced as more meditative approach to yoga, Yin aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality.

The second part of the class, Yoga Nidra, builds upon the relaxed physical and mental state from the preceding Yin postures. Yoga Nidra – also known as Yogic Sleep – is a state of consciousness similar to the process of drifting off to sleep. It is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of their inner world by following a set of verbal instructions.

Yoga nidra is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness.

No yoga experience necessary.

The focus of this form of Energy Medicine is based on the traditional Buddhist Master Usui Method, established in the 1930”s from the practices of Buddhist monks to systemize and download the harnessing of the life force. As a form of energy hygiene, upholding the sacred life force within you and around you, it encourages you to practice clarity as to assist in clearing, holding space for more Life, greater freedom, greater creativity to all as a form of empowerment in identifying as a Higher Self.

Reiki is an accessible and very approachable form of of energy medicine that is perfect for all beings in any field or responsibility they operate in, be it a parent, teacher, physical therapist, massage therapist, yoga teacher, social worker or uplifted human being!

Reiki is found in most hospitals as a valid addition to current and modern day medicines (not replacements) of healing in many parts of Asia and is beginning to be far more widely accepted here in the West, mutually making its way into hospitals, clinics, progressive therapies, yoga studios, schools and massage studios.

Based on the tradition of Master Usui, the Reiki program at Swan River Yoga is also unique in that it includes some of the healing energetic practices of the subtle body found in the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, along with the inspirations of numerous Energy Medicine healers that Michelle, the Director of the program, has encountered in the Energy practices of Bali, Mystical forms of Kabbalah, Pranic Healing and Psycho-therapy, Polarity Energy Medicine & Ayurveda.

The Reiki System works in 3 stages.

Level 1; Clear Thyself, Know Thyself. This is entirely for you. You will learn the history of Reiki and be given tools for personal daily use. You will not work with others at all. You will learn how to clear your inner and outer environments and become more sensitive to the energy around you.

You will learn to:
Cut Cords
Harmonize and feel your chakras
Clear Your Energy quickly
Dial into your Higher Self
Understand boundaries & Energy hygiene
Call on Spiritual Guides & access yours
Do a fire ceremony
Hold more life force within you
