Yoga What? Most of us have heard of Yoga. Now Yoga Nidra is exploding in popularity. But what is it?

Yoga Nidra can be defined as “expanded awareness in a state of deep relaxation.” Literally, yoga means union and nidra means sleep; however, if you actually fall asleep during yoga nidra, you get a nice nap, but you have not achieved the yoga nidra state. 

Ayurveda and Panchakarma: Fall is just around the corner - the best time for a deep cleanse! Book your panchakarma today!

Ayurveda and Subtle (Astral) Body Anatomy: The 72,000 Nadis of the Subtle Body

“The subtle body is a field of energy whose form is more fluid than the physical body. Energy (prana) flows through subtle channels called nadis. These channels permeate the entire subtle body. The mind can be understood to be the sum total of all of the nadis, as the mind can not function without the nadis and the nadis can not exist without the mind. The mind is the field and the nadis are the channels through which pranic energy flows.
