Yoga Nidre with Sherry Rubin
Monday, October 15th – 6:30 to 8:00 pm
Note: You must pre-register to attend.

Yoga Nidra it is a reliable 4,000-year-old path. It is a guided meditation, done either sitting in a chair or lying on the floor. We begin this class by doing some very gentle movement and breathing practices. These help balance energy and mood by soothing and calming where there is agitation and/or by bringing calm energy where there is fatigue and lethargy. Yoga Nidra guides you to a place of deep relaxation and rejuvenation. There will be some blankets, pillows, and yoga mats at Temenos, but it is suggested that you bring your own, plus any ‘props’ that will allow you to be comfortable lying on the floor.

Suggested $20 payment for each class, but do not let the money keep you from attending. Pay what you are able to pay or speak to Sherry.
