Yoga Nidra Workshops with Lyz Krieger
Fridays, February 14 & March 13
5:30 – 6:45 pm;
Yoga Nidra is a deeply restorative & cleansing practice that brings into harmony:
- The body through relaxation & sleep (where the body repairs itself).
- The mind through guided instructions that assist the brain to make new connections (increasing neuroplasticity).
- The spirit through allowing one to cleanse their karma (current, accumulated and destiny) & access different levels of consciousness (koshas) to aid in the manifestation of their highest being.
- Yoga Nidra is a deeply relaxed state of sensory withdrawal where the practitioner becomes increasingly aware of their own inner world. It has also been used to aid in the reduction of tension, stress and anxiety. The autonomic symptoms of high anxiety such as headache, giddiness, chest pain, palpitations, sweating and abdominal pain also respond well to the practice.
Lyz Krieger earned her degree in Psychology with a focus in Cognitive Neuroscience at Northeastern Illinois University. She expanded her research to various relaxation techniques and their effects on stress and related dis-ease. Yoga Nidra and Reiki (RMT) have been her primary areas of practice but she draws from many different methods including Writing Therapy, ASMR, Trauma Therapy, and Crystal Healing. Lyz uses her well-developed modalities to hold space, acting as a mirror, to allow the opportunity for individuals to dive deep into the reflection of their own energies and recognize areas for personal transformation.
