Yoga Nidra class Mondays, 6 - 7 p.m. at the Lotus Studio 446 Olive Street, Shreveport, is one of numerous classes offered in the cozy Highland Shop.
Belly dance, hatha yoga and hooping are also part of the weekly regimen at Lotus.
No Yoga experience is required for Nidra Yoga, says instructor Joy Yeager-Lasher. "Already have a workout regimen in place? This class is a great addition to your routine to help strengthen the mind, which often gets neglected," says Joy. "Yoga Nidra is also known as “Yogic Sleep.” It is a sleep like state that yogis report during meditation. In this practice you will enter the deepest possible state of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness. You will follow the voice of the Nararator who will guide you through breathing, body part focus, and visualizations. Yoga nidra provides full relaxation of the nervous system; builds a healthy and strong mind; improved learning and concentration; restored emotional balance; relief from insomnia, PTSD, OCD, anxiety, depression, and everyday stress."
Class is $12 drop in or 4 classes for $40 in advance. Cash or check only, please.
