Power-Ful Practice Still Taking Place
Power of Your Om, located upstairs at 1221 State Street down the hall from SOhO, is still maintaining its full schedule as of Monday night. The only adjustment is in reducing the capacity from 49 to 20, and also offering live streaming of some of the classes for home practice as well. Sunday’s upcoming Yoga Nidra workshop is also still registering. The 5:30-7:30 pm event taught by Tricia Speidel addresses stress – certainly an issue that’s pertinent to the times – through restorative yoga postures, yoga nidra, and stress-relieving essential oils in service of turning down the intensity of stress and tuning into a new state of consciousness. Yoga nidra or “yogic sleep” is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the “going-to-sleep” stage, in which the body is completely relaxed as the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a guided meditation. Attendees are advised to wear comfortable, snuggly clothes, bring a yoga mat, blanket and anything else you would like to be as comfortable as possible for a long savasana. And, of course, maintain six feet of “social distance.” Admission is $40.
