Summer Solstice Yoga Nidra
The Summer Solstice marks the longest exposure of sunlight at the onset of summer, and so it is a time to honor our connection with the sun, the nourishment and luminosity it provides, and the fire element’s properties of illumination and catalyst for changes. According to the Chandogya Upanishad, the Hita nadi connects the heart of each individual to the sun, making this a time to celebrate and recognize this powerful solar connection. This yoga nidra practice will focus on our connection to the sun, fire’s ability to burn away impurities, and will leave us transformed, nourished, and energized for the most abundant time of year. Yoga Nidra is a practice of yogic sleep, in which the practitioner reaches the deepest state of relaxation while maintaining a fully lucid consciousness. Yoga nidra develops a deeper relationship with your Self, cleanses the body and mind of tension. The Yoga Nidra will be one hour, and we will prepare the body with a simple breathing technique and a few yogic postures.

Yama Yoga (Third Ward) 231 E. Buffalo St.
According to John Sharkey, a Clinical Anatomist, Exercise Physiologist, and European Neuromuscular Therapist, when researchers measure bones, and depth, or thickness, or length, none of the bones have even a similarity, that each person’s bone shapes, “attachment sites” of muscles, and routes of nerves are individually unique. So how could we expect any two people to do a yoga posture the same way? Two people cannot do a posture in the same way, because we each have indivual movement capabilities, ranges of motion, bone lengths, etc. Private yoga allows you and I to find the best alignment for Your body, getting rid of what a posture “should” look like based on an imagined model body.
Whether you are new to yoga or a well established practitioner, private yoga is a wonderful and efficient way to deepen your practice and understanding of yoga in a setting that allows for open conversation, more personalized attention, and the ability to focus on what you want or need.

I have been using mantra to assist in my meditation practice for a few years. Repetition of mantra helps still the mind, relieving the practitioner of distractions. Trained as a jeweler, I decided it would be a natural merging of my two passions, yoga and jewelry making to start making malas. The malas below are $70 a piece, plus shipping!
