ParaYoga Nidra is the sublime science of complete relaxation. But, it is more than that. Rooted in a vast body of knowledge, ParaYoga Nidra has five different aims or outcomes. Depending upon which one of these five you wish to achieve, the approach changes. On the most basic level, ParaYoga Nidra is a comprehensive method for maximizing health and well-being. On a deeper level, it is a profoundly spiritual practice and somewhere in between, it is one of the most profound and accessible ways to positively reshape the unconscious. The practice of Yoga Nidra is a guided practice done lying down in the pose of savasana. As you fall deeper into relaxation you may experience all resistances fall away and your body melt into a place of deeply restful peace and beyond.In this experiential immersion you will experience Yoga Nidra in the ParaYoga lineage.

Weekly classes across Atlanta

“Healing, he told us, depends on experiential knowledge: You can be fully in charge of your life only if you can acknowledge the reality of your body, in all its visceral dimensions.”
The Body Keeps The Score by Bessel van der Kolk

Our weekly, trauma informed classes offer the healing resource of yoga to people across the city of Atlanta. In partnership with MercyCare, we complement their behavioral health programming by sharing holistic yoga programs at their clinics in Chamblee and Vine City. We also provide yoga to the women of House of Cherith at City of Refuge and the men of Trinity House. 

100% of City of Refuge participants who were polled reported that yoga reduces stress and tension and empowers them to manage their chronic conditions. Approximately 88% of participants agreed that yoga was “very helpful” in maintaining an overall greater sense of wellbeing.
