Private Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra

Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra has the power to transform you at your core.  All you do is lie down and listen.  During this ancient tantric meditation, Jennifer will systematically guide you through each layer of being to relax and heal at every level – including the physical, energetic, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies.

Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra is a step-by-step guided meditation that leads you deeply into your own being.  You are asked only to become aware of body, breath, thoughts and feelings without needing to change or fix anything.  There is nothing to do but ‘notice’ which is true meditation.  Healing music and nature imagery are typically included in the journey.

20 minutes of yoga nidra is said to be equivalent to 3 hours of sleep!  By inducing the ‘relaxation response’, the body’s healing state, Divine Sleep turns the healing switch on in the nervous system, allowing you the necessary time the body needs to heal, prevent illness, and also to fall and stay sleep!  Divine Sleep helps to retrain your nervous system to relax on its own and it can be used to put you to sleep by listening in bed.

The main benefits of regularly practicing Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra are improved sleep, health, happiness, and integration of all the parts of oneself.  Provides deep rest and liberation from stress; helps prevent illness, and to renew organs; increases health, happiness, and outlook; improves memory, concentration, creativity, intuition, and spontaneity; helps develop compassion, clarity, trust, and peace.  It has been used to treat: insomnia, anxiety, depression, chronic pain and more

Shiatsu Therapy

Shiatsu is a Japanese form of bodywork. Like acupuncture, shiatsu is based on the holistic system of traditional Chinese medicine, where illness is thought to result from imbalances in the natural flow of energy through the body.  Shiatsu therapists diagnose imbalance, then stretch, massage, and use hands to open energetic pathways to improve the flow of energy.  Pressure is applied within comfort level of each client in a continuous rhythmic sequence.  The treatment is done on the floor on a soft surface, without massage oil, so you remain fully clothed during the treatment.  A scientific explanation is that shiatsu calms an overactive sympathetic nervous system, which improves circulation, relieves stiff muscles, and alleviates stress.

•Relaxation
