Super Relaxation with OM Retreat
Techniques for the Art of Relaxation

Not scheduled at this time.

with Maitri Jones

Paramhansa Yogananda gave specific practices and visualizations to help master the art of relaxation that are similar to a yoga nidra system from other traditions.  The Ananda version presented uses Yogananda's words and techniques to achieve complete relaxation and a higher state of consciousness.

Gentle Yoga Super Relaxation poses at The Expanding Light RetreatTrue relaxation is one of the most difficult skills to master, especially in today's world.  Our stressful daily lives give us the message to be constantly on guard, tensed for the next demand upon us.  If this state of worry and fear rules our lives our nervous system is caught in chronic "fight or flight" mode, and we feel always tired and depleted.

This weekend can change this pattern in your life permanently!


Give yourself a lasting life skill:

  • Learn how to build an inner portable paradise of peace
  • Find deep rest without collapsing into sleep but learning how to relax upward
  • Recognize the tangles of emotion, tension, and negative feelings that are sapping your energy.
  • Use yogic techniques to accept, relax, let go, and transform.
  • Tune into the transcendent healing power of OM!
