Yoga Nidra: Working with Intention
Jackie Morrison & Valerie Fontana
The literal translation of Yoga Nidra is Yogic Sleep. It is an ancient form of guided meditation that will take you into the deepest levels of relaxation while still remaining fully aware. Yoga Nidra (Yogic Sleep) is a guided meditation that is done lying down or in a chair, allowing you to enter the deepest state of relaxation. No experience necessary, anyone can benefit from the practice Yoga Nidra. This type of meditation is wonderful for simple relaxation, stress reduction and health issues. Come experience the healing effects of Yoga Nidra and see the difference in your everyday life.
When practicing the Amrit Method of Yoga Nidra, your brainwaves drop into the alpha and theta state. As you progressively enter deeper and subtler brain waves you become more relaxed, integrated, expansive and present. Eventually, you completely shift out of identification with the body, mind and ego. In this deep state beyond ordinary waking consciousness, you naturally re-align with spirit, allowing you to effortlessly disengage from restrictive physical, mental and emotional patterning. Here, you are free to create a life that is an expression of higher consciousness, rather than acquired conditioning.
Tai Chi (also known as Tai Ji and Tai Chi Ch’uan), is an ancient Chinese martial art that in recent decades has become known for improving both mental and physical health. Tai chi is known to improve balance, coordination, internal strength, qi flow and to give an overall sense of relaxation, harmony and well being. The emphasis in Tai Chi class is learning basic principles including stances, balance, coordination, proper body structure and alignment. All formulated around relaxtion of the body, calming of the mind and which allows movement of energy or “Qi” (Chi). During class a series of warms-ups and qi gong (literally, energy works) are practiced prior to working on forms.

The Amrit Method® – the Posture of Consciousness
Amrit Yoga is for all levels of practitioners, from beginner to advanced, all can benefit from unique and integrative style of yoga. Amrit Yoga transforms the conceptual philosophy of yoga into experiential reality, taking you directly into the experience of integration. Amrit Yoga combines a strong foundation of dynamic asanas followed by deep stillness. Inward focus and meditative awareness enable you to extend your practice into subtle, unconscious stress patterns held not only in the physical body, but also in the mental and emotional bodies. Using these techniques, you can reconnect with the restorative, regenerative healing forces dormant within you to transform your life and your way of being in it.
• Transform yourself
• Transmit to the world
Amrit Yoga provides powerful tools for students, spiritual seekers, health and helping professionals and healers, as well as teachers, adding new depth and awareness to your personal practice and professional skills. This intense yoga practice can help you discover a whole new dimension to life, and to you.
Reiki Healing Circle
Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) is a holistic method of healing, much like the laying on of hands. The practitioner or Master simply lays her hands along your body and allows the universal energy (Ki) to flow through her to promote your natural healing process. A good analogy is that Reiki works like acupuncture, but without the needles. Reiki works on all of the bodies – spiritual, mental/emotional and physical – providing an all-encompassing healing experience.
