Julie is a Amrit Yoga Nidra facilitator who understands how this life changing practice balances excess tension, supports the immune system and allows healing to take place while the mind is turned off. Yoga Nidra is a sleep based meditation technique using a series of body, breath, and awareness tools. There is an effortless disengagement from the thinking mind, allowing you to enter the space between waking and sleeping. This releases healing potential of the body by removing the mind .... as in sleep.

Yes......Yoga nidra is Sleep-based!  Who doesn’t want permission to lay down and do nothing from 30-45 minutes? Yoga nidra takes you to deep sleep brainwaves, deeply restoring body and mind quickly. Some say 40 minutes of yoga nidra is the equivalent of three hours of ordinary sleep.

Come try this mindfulness meditation that assists in self-realization by allowing you to experience the self beyond the mind. Allowing you to become reintroduced to your soul in a state of Oneness with the Divine Source.
