Yoga Nidra is a great way to experience deep relaxation. One hour of this powerful meditative “yogic sleep” practice is worth FOUR hours of sleep! Take a moment to step out of the busy-ness of your life for an effortless practice that supports the body’s ability to heal and recharge at a deep level. In a place between the waking and sleeping states, you can let go of tension on the physical, emotional and mental levels, and emerge feeling deeply rejuvenated. Research conducted at universities and medical centers (including Stanford University and Walter Reed Army Medical Center) shows that regular practice of Yoga Nidra can prevent and reverse numerous ailments and diseases, including strengthening the immune system, regulating blood pressure, balancing the nervous and endocrine systems, and aid for insomnia.

EAR ACUPUNCTURE WITH KAREN JACKSON WILLIAMS:
Starting April 2, 2016, we will offer monthly auricular acupuncture sessions. Aupuncture is ‘a family of procedures involving the stimulation of points on the body using a variety of techniques’ and ‘involves penetrating the skin with thin, solid, metallic needles that are manipulated by the hands or by electrical stimulation.’ The needles are used to direct Qi, or life’s force, via meridians or pathways, in order to treat and heal, according to traditional Chinese medicine.
Ear acupuncture is used to improve the body’s flow of vital energy (also known as “chi” or “qi”) and to restore a balance between yin and yang (two opposing but complementary energies) within the internal organs. In traditional Chinese medicine, each of these effects is considered essential to treating disease and achieving health. In addition, ear acupuncture is sometimes used to enhance mood, aid in smoking cessation, alleviate pain, promote sounder sleep, relieve stress, and support weight loss. Waiver must be signed and service available by appointment. 11AM-3PM.
