Yoga Nidra Meditation Class Available from Home

WRIISC yoga nidra classes are available to all VA enrolled Veterans The meditation can be done seated, laying down, or standing No special equipment needed except a telephone Yoga nidra is safe, however, Veterans must assure they will not drive or operate machinery during class

Yoga nidra (yoga sleep) is a spoken word guided meditation that promotes a sense of deep calm while enhancing awareness. The meditation class follows the 10 stage iRest™ protocol. During class Veterans:

 Discover a heartfelt mission & purpose and establish a goal for the meditation

 Establish and connect with an inner “safe haven”

 Explore the connection between body sensations, emotions, thoughts and beliefs with an awareness of how thoughts and emotions affect the body and mind

 Learn to experience an inner joy and develop an awareness of, and access to, one’s own sense of well-being

 Connect with an inner strength & resiliency in order to more appropriately “respond” rather than “react” to situations in life Veterans may also benefit from the restful sleep-like state achieved during the meditation Join each week – no class limit
