These classes are a synthesis of Kripalu Hatha Yoga, Pilates-Inspired Bodywork, and Nondual Wisdom teachings as embodied by BodySensing and Yoga Nidra meditation.
The Autumn 2018 session of day and evening weekly classes will begin on September 10th.
Come on October 20th for a day-long Mindful retreat 'Reconnecting Within', you will have a golden opportunity to step away from the demands of life to regroup your priorities, to reconnect within and restore your vital energies... and to move forward with a greater connection to your deepest Self.
Enjoy the guided meditation practice of Yoga Nidra Meditation in the upcoming series of classes - the schedule will be announced shortly.
Yoga Nidra is an accessible form of meditation for those seeking deep relaxation and wellbeing, and an effective way to cope with everyday stress.
The practice of Yoga Nidra and the Nondual wisdom teachings inform and inspire Clearlight's teachings, and all of the classes she offers at Yogaspace.
