Yoga Nidra for the Grieving Heart

Join Rita for this nourishing 35-minute yoga nidra for our grieving hearts

In a moment with so much collective grief, in addition to personal grief that many of us carry, Rita has created this deeply personal offering to support rest and healing, as she grieves her mother’s recent death. The class will provide you with a nourishing 35-minute yoga nidra, where you can rest in an embodied space where to hold your grief. Grief can often present challenges for sleeping and rest. Yoga Nidra is a potent guided meditation that takes you through the brain wave states that happen during sleep. There will be time for optional journaling at the end of the class.

Processing grief is a layered journey. Rita encourages grieving folks to nurture ample support, such as a grief support group, spiritual practices, or other modalities for healing. Nidra is a powerful complement to these resources.

Beginners are warmly welcome.

*recording will be available to students until January 22*
