Judy Parenti instructs the following:
Gentle Yoga Practice with Yoga Nidra
Gentle asana is a slower paced yoga practice where you align and strengthen the body. Each class begins with 50 minutes of asana followed by 25 minutes of deep rejuvenation through savasana (corpse pose) and yoga nidra, a guided relaxation practice. Yoga nidra is a powerful relaxation technique where the mind and body hover between a state of total consciousness and deep sleep. It is said that one hour of Yoga nidra is equivalent to three hours of sleep. On a subtle body level this practice cultivates relief from exhaustion and stress, and provides a deeper inner awareness.
Gentle Hatha Yoga for Stress Relief
This Hatha yoga class is designed to invigorate the mind and the body by moving slowly and methodically through a sequence of traditional postures. Beginning and ending in Savasana, the class is perfect for anybody looking to relieve stress and energize, as well as build flexibility and strength. Appropriate for all levels, including beginners.
