Open Sky is a beautiful sanctuary that has a long history of retreats and the quiet surrounding nature is conducive for contemplative practices. We begin with a cup of tea and some gentle, guided movement followed by 45-minutes of yoga nidra (which is done laying down with your eyes closed). The class will end with a short seated meditation and you can stay to enjoy the grounds until 12:30pm. There is a nice loop around the property to walk or sit in quietude with the incredible Balinese art.
Yoga Nidra, or 'yogic sleep' is considered a state of consciousness rather than a practice itself. The aim is to remain awake and aware, observe, deeply relax, heal, and restore. For more background and research check out this article, The Origin and Clinical Relevance of Yoga Nidra. Please email me to register for tomorrow's class. ~CG
