6:30 pm to 8:00 pm: Yoga Nidra and Live Cello with Sarah Harvie and Erin Beach
This 90-minute Yoga Workshop is led by Sarah Harvie, and features classically-trained cello player Erin Beach. Practice begins with Gentle Asana, followed by a beautiful Yoga Nidra practice, and finishes with a 20-minute meditation, all to the soothing sounds of the cello. Yoga Nidra is a deep and blissful state of yogic relaxation. Through a guided meditation, the body is led into a relaxed sleep state while the mind remains alert and aware. Participants are invited to call forth a "Sankalpa"--a deep aspiration or intention ("I am healthy"; "I am happy"; "I am grateful")--which is infused into this higher state of consciousness to reach places of stillness.
