Description of Yoga Nidra: A calming, stress-relieving class designed to rejuvenate and heal the body and mind. Whether you are stressed, have injuries, chronic pain, or trouble with sleep, you will benefit from this class providing gentle movement, breathing techniques, restorative poses, plus the healing guided meditation of Yoga Nidra — all proven to reduce stress and improve the quality of sleep and well-being. All are welcome. No yoga experience necessary.
Mindful Wellness with Diane Butera offers support and practical tools to reduce the fear, anxiety, pain and stress that often accompanies a cancer journey. Diane Butera, former owner of Eugene Yoga, is herself an ovarian cancer survivor of nine years. In addition to conventional chemotherapy, she found tremendous healing power using mindfulness tools such as yoga nidra, a guided meditation, to move through the cancer experience with ease. Diane offers a sliding scale to cancer patients who want to access her support.
