An Inner Journey Through Yoga Nidra with Elizabeth Carman


Take 2 hours to allow your body to relax deeply, rejuvenate, and restore the balance of peace within.

In this meditative class, Elizabeth will guide you through Yoga Nidra (“yogic sleep”), an enjoyable, easy method developed thousand of years ago.

Yoga Nidra is more accessible that most forms of yoga since it requires no previous yoga experience. All it requires is to lie down and listen.

Many sources state that a one-hour class of Yoga Nidra gives the benefits of four hours of deep sleep. Yoga Nidra boosts memory, retention, learning and creativity through deep relaxation.

Elizabeth is a philosopher/psychologist, pre-birth researcher, former social worker and co-author of Cosmic Cradle, Spiritual Dimensions of Life before Birth.

Date: Saturday, February 7, 2015 and Monday, February 16,

Time: 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Cost: $20.00

* Diet and lifestyle recommendations
* Essential oils that support and cultivate balance in our lives
* Aligning ourselves with nature – time of day, time of year, time of life
* Asana recommendations for the doshas
* And more!

Becky Jordan, ERYT 500,  is a Certified Ayurveda Yoga Therapist, a member of IAYT (International  Association of Yoga Therapists), is participating in the mentoring program of Integrative Yoga Therapy, is the owner of Heart of Texas Yoga, and co-owner of Sacred Art Yoga. She has been a certified yoga teacher since 1994 and has been certifying yoga teachers through her teacher training program since 2008. She shares her love of yoga enthusiastically and with pure joy!
