Yogi claims her relaxation program is better than sleep
Workshop planned for Aug. 11

There are only so many hours in the day and night, and far too often Americans are operating in a state of sleep deprivation. The city of Lancaster is offering the community an opportunity to overcome this stressful condition by presenting a new deep relaxation yoga class this Sunday, Aug. 11, from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Held in the American Heroes Park community building, located at 642 W. Jackman St., this yoga experience will focus on the practice of wave state alignment, which teaches students how to bring together physically activating techniques discovered by ancient yogis with a scientific understanding of the quantum energy system.
Mind-state alignment, rooted in the ancient practice of Yoga Nidra, is used by yoga masters and healers for addressing sleep deprivation, negative-thought patterns and even addictions. Students in this class will, reportedly, learn how to access their deep subconscious mind and effect positive change, which will stimulate mental healing and can help them better achieve their goals and mend relationships.
The course instructor, Kae Bender, is new to the Antelope Valley, and is said to have a lengthy career of experience and training in energy management modalities. Through years of practice and teaching at Tennessee State University, Bender has created a process that she believes not only physically recharges and emotionally invigorates participants but also mentally focuses their intentions, while motivating them to overcome past negativity and more easily achieve their most challenging goals.
Bender explains, “My students learn the rational basis for the process and then experience the altered state of integrating all of their energies to work effortlessly in harmony. Often, people go to expensive retreats in exotic locations to experience the restorative effects offered in this workshop. I am excited to be working with the city of Lancaster to offer this to my new home community.”
