Yoga Nidra 2019-06-25T16:15:14+00:00


Yoga Nidra is an ancient yogic technique which has been used for centuries in the yoga culture. It is now gaining popularity in the west and has been used to remove the deep-rooted tensions and stresses stored in the physical, mental, and emotional bodies.

Scientific evidence shows that Yoga Nidra practice may improve physical and mental health through the down-regulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and the sympathetic nervous system, which helps promote concentration and brain health, reduce stress and anxiety, and provide relief from pain, insomnia, depression, and many other modern disease states.

Sho Higuchi

Sho’s years of practice in meditation and yoga have led him to find his voice as a teacher. He has trained in the arts of classical Kriya Yoga, Tantra Meditation, and yogic lifestyle from the Saraswati lineage of the Bihar School of Yoga. His studies in yogic philosophy led him to become a dedicated student of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. His teaching style fuses the powerful practice of classical Kriya Yoga and Tantra Meditation, the structure of Iyengar Yoga, the wisdom of the Yoga Sutras, and the freedom and fluidity of Qigong.

In Sho’s classes, you can expect to reconnect with a deeper version of self in a very gentle and nonjudgmental environment. He guides his students from a place of pure love, joy, and kindness. Sho leads happiness workshops throughout NYC and brings a similar light to all his classes. He finds true happiness from being a vessel of joy for others.
