Yoga Nidra with Pam Godbois

Cost: 25.00 before September 5th after 30.00. Space is limited sign up today! To reserve your spot and submit payment email downdogflow@gmail.com  

Combine the benefits of the breath, flowing asana and aroma therapy in the form of essential oils with the relaxation of Yoga Nidra and you have a class designed to open and soothe the body and soul. 

This class begins with the use of oils and sequences through a Vinyasa style flow (movement with breath) that grows from a gentle flow and builds on itself through the use of Moon salutations, standing and seated poses to open the physical body, and work out the kinks of the day. Once the body is ready, the mind will calm and open.  Coming into a supported and comfortable position the practice finishes with a Yoga Nidra Practice, a guided relaxation, to relax and heal the bodies systems.

Benefits of Practice:
Yoga Nidra induces the relaxation response, your body's healing state where revitalization and regeneration occur. Your body knows exactly what to do to attain--and maintain--perfect health and equilibrium, but you need to turn on the healing switch. Yoga Nidra is that healing switch that brings us effortlessly, compassionately, and rapidly out of the fight-or-flight state and into the healing state. This is a gentle and restorative style practice, all levels are welcome and no yoga experience is necessary. 

Pam Godbois, RYT 200, came to yoga in 2000 while in graduate school for Social Work after years of chronic back pain. She noticed that her back pain was decreasing and she had found a new home on the mat. Yoga has brought a sense of peace and calm to her body and mind and allowed her to gain perspective on life. As a result, Pam is skilled at encouraging her students to let go of expectations and see what happens.

Pam began teaching Pilates Mat classes in 2007 and has experience offering beginner, intermediate and advanced levels of practice. Pilates led her to the completion of her 200 hour yoga training in Vinyasa with Lynne Beiger and Ame Wren at Back Bay Yoga in Boston. Pam has also completed Yin Yoga training with Josh Summers, Prenatal Yoga training with Bec Conant and is certified to teach children through ChildLight Yoga.

Her goal in teaching is to provide a fun, supportive and safe environment for individuals to grow their practice both on and off the mat. As a teacher, Pam believes in letting go of competition and judgment and accepting who we are today. You will find her group classes and private sessions infused with introspection, reflection and humor to accomplish this. Pam simply loves to teach, whether handstand or butterfly, her passion for sharing the principles and asana of yoga with shine through.
