Chair Yoga + Self-Massage + Yoga Nidra with Janis Goto

April 13 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm HST


Are you sleep-deprived or overly stressed (which encourages abdominal fat accumulation)? Or, do you simply want to learn a method to become more balanced and tranquil? Experience the benefits of gentle chair yoga, easy to do self-massage techniques, and Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra (aka “Yogic Sleep”) is a guided meditation where your brain activity shifts from Beta (lots of brain activity) to Alpha (relaxed state). The shift in brain waves promotes the “Rest and Digest” or Parasympathetic Nervous System, which releases the calming hormones, Serotonin and Melatonin, bringing relaxation and calmness. Offered even in the corporate world to promote creativity and production with employees… imagine what it could bring to your daily life!


Fee: $25
