New Moon Intention Yoga Nidra

Wednesday, June 13 @ 5:30pm – 6:30pm with Naomi Cole

The new moon is a time of intention and new beginnings. It is a time to plant a seed of what you want to grow in life. Making a wish, an intention, a promise, or a heart valve is a common custom during a new moon. It is believed that as the moon grows, the intention will too, usually by the end of the moon completes its cycle and returns full circle to a new moon again. Yoga Nidra, means “Yogic Sleep” or “Psychic Sleep”, which is a deep relaxation technique and a form of meditation. You are in a deep relaxation state between sleeping and awaking. In the practice of Yoga Nidra, an intention is set at the beginning of the practice – a sankalpa, meaning heart longing vow. In this practice the results are deep relaxation and expanding the individual self-awareness. Yoga Nidra allows you to enter into your alpha state of the mind and shift your focus to the third eye chakra. The whole practice is a guided meditation, laying down on your back with support of props to deepen in the relaxation. Allow your new moon intentions to be sealed with a Yoga Nidra practice.
