Fall Stress Relief, Yin & Yoga Nidra

Friday, October 1, 6:30-8pm CST

LifeTime, 1100 Skokie Blvd, Northbrook

Settle into fall with this all-levels specialty class designed to draw your energy inward, cultivating space to pause, let go, and recover. The Yin practice will work with long held, passive shapes that target the deeper tissues of the body offering relief from stress and pain. After the yin practice, Sonya will lead you through a 30-minute yogic sleep or Yoga Nidra which allows the mind to stay inwardly alert while the body re-sets to full relaxation or rest-and-digest. Improved mood, anxiety relief, hormonal balance, and cell regeneration are just a few benefits of Yoga Nidra.


You will feel refreshed, calm, and nourished from the inside out!

Comfortable clothes and a blanket recommended.

I wanted to take the time and thank you for setting this course up. I was able to really establish a solid and consistent meditation practice that allowed me to explore various facets of my mind with kindness, compassion, and less self-judgement. With all these new resources, I feel supported to continue on my journey of self-growth with love.
