What is yoga Nidra?

Nidra is where your inner and outer awareness meet to restore, to heal, to transform. This ancient yogic practice induces the deepest possible form of relaxation while in a full meditative state of consciousness.  Come to completely rest and de-stress from busy life while also increasing your mindfulness, deep healing, and higher purpose.

Replenish & Renew - Yoga Workshop - Yoga Nidra & Myofascial Release - Maria McDonald & Betsy Shilling - Twist Yoga - Edmonds, WA


‘Tis the season to recommit to self-care! Treat yourself (and those you love) to the gift that keeps giving. We’re talking about replenishment and renewal of your mind, body and spirit!

Join Betsy Shilling and Maria McDonald for 2.5 hours of healing-bliss!

Guided rolling on pliable and grippy Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Balls with Betsy will help you release the stress and toxins that show-up in your body as muscular and fascial tension and pain.

After 90 minutes of self-massage, you’ll melt right into the sweetest yogic slumber lead by Maria. From your cozy cocoon of blankets and bolsters topped with an eye pillow, Maria will lead you on an inner-journey of discovery and healing with Yoga Nidra.

Warm hugs and hot tea included ♥
