Classes We Offer
Spend Some Time With Us
Yoga Nidra Meditation
Also known as "yogic sleep", Yoga Nidra is a guided relaxation practice where the mind enters a deep relaxation while remaining conscious. In this sleep-based meditation practice, by withdrawing from the senses and disengaging from the external world, we enter a state of "being" rather than "doing". We connect to our sense of being whole, unlock the intuitive ability of our system to heal, and set powerful intentions to change our relationship with stress, pain, and unhelpful habitual patterns.
"Most people are trying to change themselves. Yoga Nidra asks them to welcome themselves. That moment of true welcoming is where the profound transformation takes place."
~ Richard Miller
Loving Kindness Meditation
This popular class is based on the belief that mental and physical health are interrelated, and should be conditioned together. All of the classes at Practical Spiritualism attempt to coordinate breathing and mental presence, improve focus and concentration, and help participants regain control of their body and mind.
Focus on the present moment. Among its many benefits, this class helps improve numerous aspects of your life including reaction time and short term memory. Those who have tried this practice have described feeling more relaxed and less distracted by their fleeting thoughts, demonstrating an enhanced ability to solve problems and recall information better.
Yin & Tonic
Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga as exercise, incorporating principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, with asanas (postures) that are held for longer periods of time. Asanas are held from two minutes to five minutes or more. The sequences of postures are meant to stimulate the channels of the subtle body known as meridians in Chinese medicine and as nadis in Hatha yoga.
Yin Yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, its goals are awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality.
