Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation that systematically guides and relaxes you at every level of your being, including the physical, energetic, mental, emotional, and spiritual layers (called the five koshas). Through the use of breath awareness, body scanning, music and nature imagery, Yoga Nidra invites you to become aware of each layer of being without needing to change or fix anything. This contemporary practice is based on ancient yogic wisdom and meditation and is a powerful tool for modern-day life.
Joy Aldrich is an empowered healing facilitator bringing an eclectic approach to both her personal and professional practice in the healing arts. As a yoga practitioner for over 20 years, she studied and practiced various styles of yoga with New York Capital District’s premier yoga instructor, Kathleen Fisk, KYT. Upon leaving a high stressed career in the aviation industry, Joy brought her love of yoga to the next level and became a registered yoga teacher through Sharing Yoga in Concord, NH and Yoga Alliance.
In her evolving search for unique and therapeutic modalities, Joy has earned mastership in Crystal Healing, Raindrop Technique, Reiki, Shamballa, and the Access Consciousness Bars™, a method which consists of 32 bars of energy that runs through and around your head, connecting to different aspects of your life, otherwise referred to as “Bars”. One of her passionate approaches to helping individuals in their journey of well-being is her intuitive use of crystals which she incorporates in her energy work. Joy creates the space for awakening women’s self-worth, touching the core of each individual, allowing a healing awareness to occur.
Seeking to enhance her spiritual and healing practice, Joy is a continuous student of the Elements, formally studying in a Mystery School in New Hampshire and an ongoing focus on the Goddess and the Mysteries that lay beyond.
Joy uses a multi-layered approach to her healing, focusing on a peaceful and nonjudgmental surrounding to bring about the opening to healing and helping women to embrace their healing journey through self-empowerment using the mind, body, and spirit in a Joyful Alternative.
