It is estimated, that 1 in 4 people suffer from insomnia and that many more experience anxiety on a regular basis. In our society; full of deadlines, constant external stimulation and an incessant pressure to succeed, it is no wonder that so many of us struggle to quiet our minds & our bodies. Our adrenal systems are stressed to their max and our nervous systems are working overtime to keep us going.

It is like a yoga date night with yourself. Lights low, candles lit. We will begin with a light vinyasa (flow), once you are warm and ready, we lather up some yin (deep stretching) and wind down into some long held supportive restorative postures. Focus on relaxing into the deepest layers of the body to return yourself to a place of release, surrender and calm.

Through calming breath-work, deep and relaxing poses, and gentle massage offered by Margo Imbert, you will learn to unwind in a natural and effective way.

We will end the practice with Yoga Nidra, a yogic technique, is guided meditation usually practiced while reclining. This meditative technique focuses on effortless receptivity and deep ease for profound relaxation and healing. Expect to leave this workshop with the ability to create a routine that will assist you in your nightly wind down.

Cost: $40
