Mona's has been teaching her signature Restorative / Yoga Nidra/  Workshops for the past ten years. She has combined her knowledge of Yoga Nidra, which she started practicing at fourteen in India, with her love for Restorative which she credits with helping manage her asthma symptoms to create her own unique Restorative/ Yoga Nidra Workshops. She teaches two different series, one to balance the chakras and the other to balance the doshas.

Each practice begins with gentle guided vinyasa to release stress in the breath and tension from the muscles and joints. Participants then recline on bolsters to the sound of soothing music, the aroma of essential oils and gentle hands on adjustments. Restorative poses are held for about ten to fifteen minutes. Her workshops  end with a thirty to forty minute long yoga nidra. 

Yoga Nidra is a guided  guided auditory meditation technique practiced lying down in savasana. It is based on  an ancient tantric technique called nyasa in which practitioners through brought awareness to different parts of the body. Through the practice of yoga nidra practitioners are able to enter the hypnogogic state, between being asleep and being awake, a  state that induces a deep state of relaxation, releases past memories trapped in the unconscious and enables one to experience an expanded state of consciousness.

Restorative / Yoga Nidra & Pranayama Workshop

Tuesday, October 23rd | 18:00-20:30

Sundbyberg, Sweden  

Prana is the vital force that rides on the breath and enlivens us. Pranayama means expansion of this vital force. We use pranayama techniques to balance our energy, to reign in our minds and our senses, to heal, to create internal transformation and to lift our consciousness.

We are made up of five vibratory fields (koshas) that surround our spirit. One of these fields is the pranamaya kosha which is the fuel for the other vibratory fields. The other fields include the physical body, the mind, the wisdom body and the bliss body. Just as the physical body is made up of our muscles, joints, organs etc the pranamaya kosha is made up of of five forms of prana. These five forms of prana are called vayus, and govern different functions in us.

Thursday, October 25th | 9:30am – 12:00 pm

Gothenburg, Sweden

The practice will focus on balancing Svadhisthana Chakra which is the energy center that governs our relationship with sensation, feeling and pleasure in our lives. When this energy center is balanced we’re in touch with our feelings, we’re comfortable with intimacy and are able to manage the duality of life. When this energy center is underactive / tamasicour senses are dulled and we lose our ability to feel and enjoy life. When, overactive / rajasicwe’re addicted to short term pleasure and ruled by our feelings. The entire practice, including the asanas, restorative poses, visualizations and yoga nidra are all designed to release blocked feelings and emotion and facilitate the free flow of energy through the body.

A Restorative/Yoga Nidra Workshop to Balance Muladhara Chakra  

Thursday, November 15th | 6:30 - 9:00pm

ISHTA Yoga
56 East 11th St | New York, NY

A practice destined to balance Muladhara chakra with asana, restorative and yoga nidra.

The Muladhara Chakra is the energy center that governs the way we function on this plane of consciousness – our family, occupation, money, etc. When balanced we feel grounded and relaxed and are able to move through life smoothly. When this energy center is underactive/Tamasic we feel fearful and anxious, lack focus and often disconnect from our bodies. When overactive/Rajasic we feel stuck and unable to bring about change in our lives.

The practice will begin with a gentle guided vinyasa and stretching to release stress in the breath and tension from muscles and joints. Participants will then recline on bolsters to the sound of soothing music, the aroma of essential oils and gentle hands on adjustments. Each restorative pose will be held for about ten to fifteen minutes. The workshop will end with a twenty to thirty minute long yoga nidra, a meditation technique practiced in savasana to deeply relax the body and mind and integrate different levels of consciousness. The entire practice including the asanas, restorative poses, meditations and visualizations will be designed to rebalance this energy center by regrounding and reconnecting us to the body and releasing what lies in the unconscious.
