Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Yoga Nidra - An all systems "reboot" in preparation for dancing and fun. Spend the entire class lying down. First move through some gentle and deeply effective movements to unwind tight muscles and soothe a stimulated nervous system. Then settle into a savasana position to do a long deep relaxation and meditative practice that will leave you rejuvenated and centered. It's said that 30 minutes of yoga nidra is the equivalent of  2 hours of deep sleep!

Growing up with a yoga teacher as her mother, Ashleigh began her exploration of yoga at an early age, dedicated to the pursuit of healing a lifelong spine condition. Now, living a pain free and spiritually empowered life, Ashleigh is dedicated to sharing the healing power of yoga with the world. As the Head of Yoga Content for Gaia.com, Director of Yoga and Movement for The Envision Festival in Costa Rica, and co-founder of The Ālaya Yoga School, Ashleigh Sergeant also spent five years as the Global Yoga Trainer for Adidas and was honored to be the youngest Certified Anusara Yoga Instructor in the world.

A regular presenter at the Wanderlust Festival, Ashleigh’s work can also be seen on Mind Body Green, YOGANONYMOUS, Latin Women’s Health and German Yoga Journal.  Ashleigh’s life is a true embodiment of the teachings of yoga. Her life, presence and vibrant way of being in this world are shining examples of her dedicated practice. Steeped in a breadth of knowledge and depth of experience, she has the unique gift of being able to guide her students in a clear, effective and inspiring way. Grounded in a solid foundation of the ancient teachings, Ashleigh continues to be on the leading edge of yoga’s evolution.
