Peggy Adair instructs the following:
This class is a great for anyone looking to reduce stress, release tightness in the body in a gentle way or anyone new to yoga. It begins with an extra gentle flow to open the body preparing oneself for a luxurious second part of class in Restorative Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra is a relaxation technique guided by the teacher's voice where you identify sensations throughout your body, and focus on your breath, while remaining in a state of relaxed awareness so that you may release deeply held tension in your body -- some which you may not even be aware of. Yoga Nidra will be used while the body is supported with blankets, bolsters, blocks in relaxing restorative poses - to allow the body to soften, open and bring you into a relaxed peaceful state.
