Yoga Nidra is defined as a practice as well as a state of consciousness. During Yoga Nidra, the body is completely relaxed in stillness. During this guided meditation, you will be sunk into a parasympathetic state yet completely aware. This is the perfect time to allow the conscious and subconscious mind to experience different feelings and sensations, without attachment.
This practice is paired beautifully with Acupuncture. Before the Yoga Nidra begins, small pins will be placed at specific points on the body to bring you into an even deeper state of parasympathetic relaxation. You will leave feeling revitalized and calm!
What to bring:
- yoga mat
- light pillow
- comfortable clothing
Bolsters will be provided by Yoga Nova.
Spots are limited! Sign up online by selecting the Acu-Nidra workshop here.

About Sarah & Jenny
Sarah is owner and practitioner of Acupuncture Collective in Calgary. She's inspired by the undeniable relationship between the physical and non-physical aspects of the human body, and through her own health journey, Sarah discovered the powerful effects of Acupuncture. Sarah's practice is primarily focused on women's health, treating conditions such as infertility, menopause, PMS, endometriosis, hormonal imbalance, anxiety, depression, as well as pre and postpartum care.
Jenny’s journey toward healing started 5 years ago, when she had a dream that she had to go on a pilgrimage to India to heal past trauma. In the 4 years that it took her to prepare for that trip, emotionally and spiritually, she stumbled upon Nidra completely by accident and was enamoured immediately. On her trip to India she practiced the Himalayan tradition of Nidra, and upon returning to Canada completed her teacher training with the School of Sankalpa in the Bihar tradition of Nidra.
