Lunar Nidra: Full Moon Guided Yoga Nidra Practice

An Online Guided All Levels Yoga Nidra Practice with Michele Loew | Friday, August 12th, 2022 | 9:30 PM ET | Live with Re-Plays

Join Michele Loew, Founding Director of the Tibet House US | Menla Vajra Yoga School of Comparative Buddhist & Indic Yogic studies, and the Tibet House US | Menla community for an online introduction to Yoga Nidra.

Lunar Nidra: Full Moon Guided Yoga Nidra is a monthly series co-hosted by Tibet House US | Menla & The Yoga Space creating a digital, virtual space for those looking to deepen their understanding of yoga and the body, mind, and spirit connection through direct practice in an informal and relaxed setting.

Yoga Nidra is a practice that works on profoundly healing all the layers of the body/heart/mind complex. It also provides a bridge to pure consciousness. This evening session will provide students and seekers on the path to freedom a direct experience of Yoga Nidra under the light of the Full Moon.

Yoga Nidra helps in regulation of hormones, stabilization of glucose levels, alleviates PTSD, helps with sleep and healing, and creates a meditative state very quickly that is identified in brain wave analysis and can move people into Turya (the state of bliss or samadhi which is one of the highest states of realization), and it is takes us to the direct experience of the clear light of the void. It is deeply restful and a doorway to a meditative form that all levels of meditators can enter.

In this online session, we will explore:

  • How Yoga Nidra effects our subtle energies, using different Nidra practices each month, allowing the direct experience of the science and techniques taught by the lineages' Nidra.
  • What the practice of Sankalpa, the power of high spiritually-guided intentions or high vows are and how they can help improve one's modivation and realtionship to one's body, mind, spirit and community
  • What the science behind Yoga Nidra is, both through the perspective of neuroscience and yogic science, learning how this practice affects our brains, bodies, and all the layers (koshas) of our being.

Yoga Nidra is best enjoyed in a quiet setting, laying down prone on a yoga mat or comfortable blanket with a pillow or supportive neck materials. The session will begin with short pointing out instructions before guided meditation begins. The evening will conclude with a Q&A with Michele and fellow journeyers where individuals can share reflections and inquire about Yoga Nidra in a safe space.

Hosted on Zoom and simulcast on YouTube, these monthly gatherings are open to all those interested in holistic healing, yoga, and the Buddhist Inner and Outer Sciences and to those looking to learn more about Yoga Nidra's transformative practices.

This online event will be simulcasted live on YouTube with re-plays and bonus materials provided via
