Invoking Your Inner Goddess Yoga & Yoga Nidra with Aly Daly
Friday, November 29 7:00 – 8:30pm $30
Much like the balance found between yin and yang, we all possess both masculine and feminine energy. While masculine energy is governed by the sun and strength qualities, feminine energy is guided by the moon with nurturing qualities. Join us to honour the feminine energy within as you’re guided to explore your inner compassion, grace, resilience, and creativity through an empowering yoga practice and guided meditation.
Yoga Nidra opens you up to a space that encourages complete physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. Within this peaceful state, the mind remains awake to explore different states of consciousness, while stimulating rejuvenation, increasing inner strength, shifting limited thinking patterns, awakening creativity, counteracting stress and awakening that powerful goddess within!
All experience levels are welcome.
The family here at Yoga Within is always trying to think of ways to improve our schedule & classes to better fit what classes & workshops you want to see & attend. The most helpful way to do this is by your early registration for our Registered Classes & Workshops. We need a minimum number of people pre-registered for each class & workshop. Pre-registrations help us determine what classes you are still excited about & interested in & what we will keep on our future schedule. While we do our best to make as many of our classes open to drop-ins, we need to do as much pre-registration as we can so we can ensure your favourite classes run & stay on the schedule. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!
