These energizing and healing classes help the physical body to let go of habitual tension and channel the subtle energy into the spine. Yoga Nidra Yoga Nidra is a powerful, scientific method based on ancient Tantric texts, of complete mental, physical & emotional relaxation. An invaluable tool for manifestation, letting go of habitual patterns, and connecting to your true nature, Yoga Nidra releases built up tension, stress and anxiety, providing a perfect tool for the often fast-paced life of the modern world. Yoga Nidra induces the mind to transition from the waking state, through the “hypogonic” state (between waking and dream), into dream and deep sleep states. This transition however is not done unconsciously. Using the tool of Yoga Nidra the transition is done with full consciousness and allows the practitioner to access layers of the subconscious mind with clarity and mindfulness. This allows for the release of many negative patterns in the mind to unravel and ultimately dissolve. This state of heightened awareness, coupled with the equipoise of mind that yoga nidra promotes, ultimately helps elevate us the higher levels of spirituality where inner wisdom and compassion express themselves effortlessly.
Dattatreya's sculptures with alternate iconography have been identified in 1st millennium CE cave temples and archaeological sites related to Hinduism.  For example, in the Badami temple (Karnataka), Dattatreya is shown to be with single head and four hands like Vishnu, but seated in a serene Yoga posture ( padmasana ). Carved with him are the emblems ( lañchana ) of the Trimurti, namely the swan of Brahma, the Garuda of Vishnu and the Nandi of Shiva. The right earlobe jewelry and hair decoration in this art work of Dattatreya is of Shiva, but on his left the details are those of Vishnu.  Rigopoulos dates this Badami sculpture to be from the 10th to 12th century.
