[Zoom] Theory and Practice of Yoga Nidra | Q&A with Mia Park

May 23 @ 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

$15 – $25

Conscious relaxation is an ancient system perfect for modern times. First mentioned in the classical Indian text the Mahabharata as “yoga nidra,” conscious relaxation is clinically proven to reduce PTSD symptoms, ease pain, and cure insomnia. Learn how deeply resting the body and mind has the potential to heal and guide you to your highest Self.

This class will consist of an informative slide show lecture explaining the “Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How” of yoga nidra followed by a deep practice.

Conscious relaxation, or yoga nidra, is safe for all and can be practiced seated, lying down, and even standing. Understanding the history and structure of yoga nidra will inform your experience of conscious relaxation and deepen your connection to the timeless part of yourself.

Mia Park teaches yoga from the inside, out. She prioritizes the linking of breath to movement as a way to access our deeper physical, emotional, and mental bodies. Connecting to these deeper bodies is a spiritual practice of self-awareness. And with self-awareness, a life of purpose can be lived. Mia uses yoga poses as a gateway to developing inner refinement. She also uses techniques she continually learns, training in yoga nidra, breath work/pranayama, energy-focused Tantra hatha yoga, yoga anatomy, yoga therapy, Daoist taiji, and other studies that support inner development. Mia and her classes are powered by hope and engagement.

Mia is a highly trained yoga teacher based out of Chicago, IL. She’s a certified iRest Level 1 teacher, Rest and Renew restorative yoga teacher, 500 Hour Viniyoga teacher, E-RYT 500, YACEP, 200 CYT, a Darshan Certified Integrated Ayurvedic Practitioner and Advanced Yoga Teacher, and a former 500 Hour Parayoga teacher. Mia is also currently becoming an IAYT Yoga Therapist. She is a Domestic Violence Advocate who teaches survivors and has volunteered teaching prenatal yoga in Cook County jail since 2010.

Mia has studied the art of yoga nidra with many teachers, including iRest with Richard Miller, Total Yoga Nidra with Uma Dinsmore Tuli, the Himalayan tradition with Rolf Solvik, Trauma-Informed Nidra, and Satyananda Yoga Nidra with Tripura Yoga, Rod Stryker and Dr. Swami Shankardev Saraswati. She has led several yoga nidra teacher trainings since 2014 and continues to grow as a yoga nidra practitioner and teacher.
