Yoga Nidra can be translated to “Yogic Sleep”. Yoga Nidra is an ancient yogic practice that is both a form of meditation and a mind-body therapy. It is a systematic form of guided relaxation. Yoga Nidra has many benefits which include deep relaxation, release of chronic stress, more restful sleep, resolution to many of life’s issues, and a greater sense of harmony in daily life and relationships. Guided by the teacher’s voice, you identify sensation throughout your body and focus on your breath, while remaining in a state of relaxed awareness so that you may release deeply held tensions.
 
We will start by developing an intention for our life and then focus on our breath and bodily sensations to help release emotions and let go of thoughts. Throughout the practice we will tap into an underlying sense of peace that is always present.  One hour of Yoga Nidra is said to equate to about four hours of restful sleep.
 
No prior yoga experience is needed to participate in Yoga Nidra.  You can sit down or lay down wherever you are the most comfortable, supporting yourself as needed with bolsters and pillows.  Since we will be using Zoom, you can even just lay down on your bed for the session!  If you prefer to join the session without Zoom video turned on, that is just fine. You’ll want to be in a quiet space and you may want a light cover layer as the body tends to cool down during Yoga Nidra.

Marma Energy Treatments

This is one of the most restorative treatments for your mind/body

Are you feeling tired or depleted?  Not sleeping well?  Have aches or pains that won’t go away?  Is stress taking its toll on you?  Want to be more productive?  Need more balance in your life? Marma energy treatments can help with all of these concerns and more!

Marma are vital energy points located on the surface of the body similar to acupressure points. Marma points are located where the flesh, veins, arteries, tendons, bones and joints meet.  Marma is a Sanskrit word which means “hidden” or “secret”.  There are 107 major marma points on the body which are “doorways” into the mind/body.  Each point allows for entry into the chakras and works on the subtle body, releasing blocked energy and stimulating the flow of prana.  Prana is our vital life force and can easily become depleted. Activating these points gently awakens your body’s own natural self-healing, self-balancing and sense of calm.

Marma energy treatments can help with so many areas of the mind/body including aches and pains, stress and anxiety, insomnia, grief and loss, digestive issues, improve organ function and overall balance and relaxation.  The body responds to the mind and the mind responds to the body.  They are not separate.  These treatments synchronize and harmonize the entire system.

Through gentle touch on specific points, the body deeply relaxes, the nervous system is reset, and cellular healing of the body is enhanced by creating balance and harmony in your mind/body.  You remain fully clothed during this treatment.  Focus is on energy centers rather than muscles.  Touch on marma points is done with specific fingers.  A tuning fork which is tuned to the frequency of Ohm or other tuning forks with various healing frequencies are used on marma points to allow a subtle vibration to relax and heal the body.  Essential oils and gemstones or crystals may also be incorporated into a treatment.  

Client comment about marma energy treatment:

While it may seem subtle at first, Becky’s marma treatment has a profound impact on body, mind and spirit.  It is a deeply healing modality, restoring balance and health.  I have had many sessions and each time I come away with something new and wonderful.  A marma session with Becky is a total treat and a very loving gift to yourself.”     ~ Lynn E.

 

What People say

Having been a yoga student of Becky's for more than ten years, I believe that she is an outstanding teacher and mentor. She is dedicated to learning/growing in her own practice, and she eagerly shares her knowledge and information with her students. She has a gentle wisdom and manner, and is gifted at ensuring that each student's practice addresses his/her own individual needs and abilities. I often feel that she can "read" my mind/body!

Our journey to Peru was an amazing adventure! I can't say what I loved the best -- the Sacred Valley oasis of Willka Tika with those beautiful chakra flower gardens, Machu Picchu and the grand sense of the past, or our tour guide's passionate stories of the ancient and wise peoples. It was wonderful to have the daily yoga practice to give us all a deep truth connection to our surroundings. This was a well developed and intimate adventure for all of us.
