Nighttime Nidra: Deep Guided Relaxation

Rejuvenate and destress with Kerry Ouimette. Please wear comfortable clothing, and bring a sleeping bag, blanket, and/or yoga mat.

Nighttime Nidra (also known as "Yogic Sleep") is a wonderful way to rejuvenate yourself by providing relief from sleep issues, anxiety, stress, and depression and leaving you with a sense of restoration. All you have to do is lie there and let Kerry guide you to complete mental, physical, and emotional relaxation. 

What to Expect: A brief explanation of yoga nidra, which is a guided relaxation best experienced while lying down, followed by 45 minutes of yoga nidra with some time to ease back into the evening. 

What to Wear: Comfortable, cozy clothing for warmth and relaxation.

What to Bring: BYOC Bring Your Own Comforts. A sleeping bag or blanket (maybe two if you like to be cozier), a yoga mat/towel for an extra layer underneath you, and/or an eye pillow of even a dry face cloth to fold and place over your eyes. Comfort/warmth is beneficial for Yoga Nidra, so please bring some variation of the suggested items.
