A 4-week virtual series to pause, rest, and connect with plants!
Summer is a perfect moment to pause, rest, and connect with plants. Come nourish yourself with yoga nidra, a sleep-based meditation accessible for all bodies and abilities. Nidra takes us to the liminal space, the dream space, and sometimes right to sleep. Nidra teacher Rita Jimenez collaborated with herbalist and farmer Jennifer Serna on this special offering, so that you can access some magical new plant essences Jennifer has created to support dreaming and healing. There will be an optional opportunity at the end of each class to journal about your dreams and learn about the practice of dream journaling.
What will you receive:
- 4 live Nidra classes on Zoom
- Recordings of the classes
- Handout on Jennifer’s plant medicines with suggestions on using plant essences that support dreams [register early so you have time to order those before the series begins]
- Optional journaling opportunities at the end of each class
- Email access to yoga nidra teacher Rita Jimenez during the series.

What students say about Rita:
"Rita leads yoga nidra with a sweet and clear voice. She guides each session with kindness and understanding, taking time to explain and educate us on the importance of rest and restoration. Rita also ties in stones, plant medicine and books/teachers to learn from making the experience multi-dimensional and whole body. Thank you Rita!"
"Rita creates a safe, nurturing space for soul and body to rest and restore. Her inquisitive, gentle presence as a guide made this yoga nidra class feel like a sacred treat at the end of the day. Rita attends to everyone with care and concern, making sure that they are getting their needs met. She is very knowledgeable and took extra time to answer questions about yoga nidra during and after class. Highly recommend this class!"
"Rita holds space in a beautiful way. As she guides us through nidra, I felt held, supported, and at ease. Her ability to share distant reiki during these practices is a true gift and blessing. I left feeling well-rested and pain-free each time I've taken a class with her. So much gratitude for Rita."
