Yoga Nidra: Guided Relaxation in the Amphitheatre

Recurring event see all

Thursday, August 25 @ 8:00 am 9:00 am


The Camden Public Library will host Yoga Nidra sessions, in addition to other wellness offerings, in the Camden Amphitheatre this summer. Camden-based Health & Wellness Coach Hester Kohl Brooks will facilitate Yoga Nidra programs every Thursday from 8:00 – 9:00 am. Yoga Nidra is a form of guided meditation that brings the body into a state of deep relaxation. 

Kohl is a trained Daring to Rest Yoga Nidra Facilitator who utilizes the practice to help her clients overcome their exhaustion in order to reach their wellness goals. “Yoga Nidra is known for bringing peace and clarity,” says Brooks “and may be helpful for people experiencing stress or other conditions. The practice is called a ‘sleep-based’ meditation, in that it combines the benefits of meditation with some of the benefits of sleep.” 

Many people practice lying down, but participants may also choose to sit or walk. Please bring anything that will help you get comfortable such as a yoga mat, blankets, a pillow/bolster for under your knees, eye mask, or a chair if you’re planning to practice seated. 

The program is offered for free, but donations are accepted. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Camden Public Library. For more information and to pre-register, contact Hester at hesterkohlwellness@gmail.com. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged so you can be contacted in case the class is canceled or moved.
