Yoga Nidra workshops

In uncertain times yoga nidra offers strong benefits. First, deep rest to our system from worry: let go. Second, insight on inner processes and outer conundrums . Third, wisdom for what next for you.

The workshop includes

  • introduction to the practice and the season-based theme
  • mindful yoga moves
  • 40 minute yoga nidra (guided lying down meditation)
  • circle to each share and listen to what’s come up and is going on
Yoga nidra is a guided deep relaxation technique, offering relaxation on physical, mental and emotional levels, and is a powerful stress management tool. It is also a technique that enables you to access and manifest your true wishes.

Nidra means sleep. In yoga nidra you retain awareness while allowing the mind waves to slow to the frequency of dream and deep sleep. Your system is able to rest deeply while accessing the subconscious.

You will need:
A yoga mat, blanket or soft surface to lie on
A bolster or roll pillows in a towel or small blanket, or put the bundle in a pillowcase, or roll up a heavy blanket. Two such bundles would be good, but can probably manage with one especially if you are more on the short and slim side
eye pillow or scarf to cover your eyes (optional)
layers of clothes and an extra blanket for warmth
pets, partners, children to leave you alone!

I’ve suffered with bouts of insomnia and poor sleep for over 20 years. I went to Friday Night Nidra in the midst of a bout and left feeling calm and relaxed. I slept so well afterwards and woke feeling positive and full of energy. Can’t recommend Fiona’s nidras and yoga classes highly enough. Ommm R, North Tawton

After a profound evening of Yoga Nidra, I couldn’t rate Viveka Gardens or Fiona more highly; Fiona is incredibly warm, welcoming and a master of her art, I felt immediately comfortable and held. Viveka Gardens has a great energy in which to practise and I look forward to going back again and again! J, Tiverton
