Yoga Nidra :: A Restorative Guided Meditation

  • Fire Horse Yoga 515 Main Street Jasper, IN (map)

Join Samantha Knies Gray for Yoga Nidra! Yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is an immensely powerful meditation technique. As you lie down, supported in savasana, all you have to do is follow Samantha's voice. Falling asleep is okay, too, as you will still receive benefits while the unconscious mind is absorbing the practice. Yoga Nidra offers a space to explore what you need in the moment, as well as an opportunity to work on releasing long-held emotions. The class will start with a few gentle stretches to prepare your body for stillness. "Most people are trying to change themselves," says Richard Miller, a San Francisco Bay Area yoga teacher and clinical psychologist. "Yoga nidra asks them to welcome themselves. That moment of true welcoming is where the profound transformation takes place." For this practice, wear socks, warm layers, and consider bringing an extra blanket. We have limited space. To ensure your spot, please purchase your ticket beforehand.

About your teacher, Samantha Knies Gray, RYT ~
Samantha made yoga a daily part of her life when she lived in Carmel, Indiana – maintaining a home practice when she wasn’t sweating it out during hot classes after work. She began practicing at Fire Horse after moving back home to Dubois County in January 2016. Samantha fell in love with yin yoga after taking one class with Julia Jalles and knew that she wanted to bring this practice to the lives of others. She finished her 200-hour teacher training at Fire Horse in November 2017 and is passionate about the benefits of all yoga, but especially yin, restorative, and children’s yoga.

In addition to teaching, Sam attends regular vinyasa and hatha classes at Fire Horse and maintains a daily yin practice at home with her two young daughters. She’s an avid believer in taking time out of our busy lives (and taking time off of heavy workouts!) to rest + restore our bodies and minds. Samantha’s intention is to bring a deep level of peace and an awareness of body + breath to every student she teaches.
