Time: 2:30 pm

What: The Lotus Lounge is a place to meet, discuss, and explore the other practices of yoga in a playful, inquisitive way. We’ll have snacks & tea, and all are welcome. June’s Topic: With a spiritual background, and prescribed practices, depending on its presentation, yoga can sometimes feel a little… churchy. But is yoga a religion? We’ll explore this question from all angles – including how yoga feeds our spiritual hunger, how various yoga “schools” might feel like “denominations,” why that might confuse devout religious practitioners. Do you have insights about your own experience integrating yoga with your religious faith? Come share! Expect a healthy, loving, curious discussion – with no “correct” answers.

* Yoga NidraYoga Nidra

Time: 4:30 pm

Yogic Sleep and Deep Conscious Healing What: Yoga Nidra, translated as “union with the deep unconscious, untethered state” is a guided lying down practice where space is held to heal and access the subtle flow of energy (prana). It is a conscious state of deep relaxation where the body is asleep yet the mind is awake in active trance and participation. This yogic practice reveals the power of stillness where you activate a specific healing process on an energetic level. It is perfect if you need personal time to go deep, to be still and to be silent, healing the sympathetic nervous system. Done lying down, please bring anything that makes you feel comfortable for the deep sleep state. (personal blankets, pillows, shawls) There will also be props and blankets available for you to attain deep rest. This session will remove blockages and support deep healing. It will empower you to access the creative principle where potentiality and creating quick shifts is possible. All levels and bodily conditions, ages and abilities are encouraged to come. Proper tools are available to make it accessible for anyone and no experience is necessary beyond a willingness to surrender and heal past impressions. The first 20 minutes will be an explanation of the affects of Yoga Nidra as well as it’s origin and 60 minutes will be a deep healing, lying down, where you are asked to no longer move once the visualization session begins. There will be a chance afterward to either continue sitting in silence or to comment on your experiences or ask questions. When: Sunday, June 26th 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM Where: Swan River Yoga Mandir Mid-City Investment: $16
