In Yoga Nidra and other meditative yoga practices, we begin by cultivating Kaya Sthairyam— Body Steadiness. As the body becomes increasingly still, the mind begins to still as well. Become as still as a mountain, as a deeply rooted tree. In stillness we awaken to the miracle of Awareness.

This week’s offerings at Yogala:
✨Restore + Nidra Sunday 10am (space is limited as we will be in the healing space this week, so please come early)
✨Open + Restore Sunday 6pm
✨Yoga Nidra Monday 5:30pm
💐Appreciating all mothers— biological mamas, adoptive and foster mamas trans-parents, fur-mamas, godmothers, grandmothers, guard-moms, aunties, moms-to be, everywhere. Thank you for everything you've given this world. The matriarchy is the root of all life. 💐Bring YOUR MOM or a MOM YOU LOVE to Yogala Saturday + Sunday for a FREE CLASS! 💐Tomorrow, I’ll be offering Restore + Nidra at 10am and Open + Restore at 6pm

Have I told you about how Yoga Nidra saved my ass when I was a new mom? Don't let this adorable baby fool you-- he ran me through the ringer from the moment he came earthside! As new parents, we experienced so many joyful-joys and awful-awfuls that they began to take a toll on me.

Believe anyone that tells you that sleep deprivation is torture (it's even illegal under international law). I felt like my life was falling apart, and in many ways it was-- when we are lacking restorative sleep, we react rather than respond, we make choices that are not in our best interest, we have a harder time regulating our nervous systems. And of course sleep deprivation affects everyone in your constellation!

Anyway, Yoga Nidra (a guided meditation practice that brings you to a state between awake and asleep) helped me to grab truly restorative rest in just 45 minutes, and every time I returned from the practice feeling lighter on my feet, less anxious, more able to deal with the challenges that inevitably came my way, and I felt like a happier and better mom/spouse/employee/human.

If you're a parent struggling with the effects of sleep deprivation, let me know in the comments, or DM me and we can talk about how I can help!

Sankalpa: it's more than an intention. It's a heartfelt resolve, a statement of fact that reflects your heart's deepest longing. It's a vow and commitment we make that honors the deeper meaning of our lives. It's a statement that you can call upon to remind you of your true nature and guide your choices. A Sankalpa is your North Star, always shining to guide you on your path!

Creating a Sankalpa takes deep listening-- Who am I? What is my purpose? What support do I need in order to live in my truth? And what about pleasure? When we listen-- REALLY listen to our heart, we can determine what we really want to embody in this life and how to make it so

The North Star is offered on January 8, 2022: we will come together to explore our hearts' deepest longings in order to create a potent Sankalpa for the New Year. Then we will plant this powerful starseed into your consciousness through the practice of Yoga Nidra meditation. I hope that you will join me in this special Rest-shop!

Today is theee day! That is, today is the last day to register for the Winter cohort of Transformational Rest: a 40-day Yoga Nidra Immersion-- THE easiest New Year “challenge” ever. A challenge where failure isn’t an option because failure doesn’t exist! A challenge where you not only get to Rest— you also get to Rest on your terms— when and where you WANT to. There are no “shoulds” in Transformational Rest. There is only Rest itself, Rejuvenation, Healing, and Joy.

Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) can truly transform your sleep quality as well as provide a conduit for remembering and reconnecting the body, mind, and spirit to your essential nature. This ancient practice, combined with modern wisdom, provides a roadmap to Joy and Freedom!

Through Transformational Rest, your daily Yoga Nidra practice will be the nourishment that empowers you in your waking life! Once a week we will come together on Zoom to talk a little bit about one of the many dimensions of Yoga Nidra, practice together live, and share our experiences and processes with one another (if desired.) Then, you will receive a Yoga Nidra mp3 recording to use each day of the following week on your own!
Don’t worry if life gets in the way and you miss a day (or more) of practice! You are a human being navigating the human experience, so know that you can go easy on yourself and start again whenever you are ready. Remember, this is NOT a test— it’s a way of inviting Rest and self-compassion into your day to day life.

After 40-days, you will emerge from this “challenge” with a renewed connection to your body, energy, mind, and intuition; plus a new habit of finding ways to Rest in your days!

This immersion is, as always, designed for ALL bodies and experiences— even (especially!) those who don’t believe they can meditate! I am so excited for this offering and hope that you will join me on this new adventure, beginning January 2, 2022.

We are getting closer to 2022! How will you center Rest in your life?

To help you explore this question, I am offering Transformational Rest: a 40-day Yoga Nidra Immersion-- quite possibly the EASIEST New Year “challenge” you'll find on the interwebs! Imagine a challenge where you get to Rest!

Getting not only enough Rest but also quality Rest has been a huge challenge for so many over the past 2 years, so I thought it would be nice to offer a gentle way to relearn how to Rest through Yoga Nidra, so that you can truly feel restored and less burdened as you move through your waking life.

The last full moon of the year...
Reflecting, reassessing, re-aligning, and of course, Resting.
How will you acknowledge the December Cold Moon?

Hi friends! It's Sydney, the human behind Ananda Meditation. This #smallbusinesssaturday I invite you to give your loved ones, friends, and workplace team (and YOURSELF) the gift of Rest. Why do I capitalize the R in Rest? Because Rest is sacred, Rest is our birthright, and Rest deserves the respect our society has devalued over the decades. When you meditate with me, you experience profound Rest, healing, and a new sense of purpose in your waking life. Well-rested humans can change the world, so let's get together and be the change! Links in profile to meditate with me, as well as for gift certificates at all price points! I am so grateful for your support!
