November 3 Yoga Nidra Workshop at the Ashtanga Yoga Studio Exeter

A warm welcome to the November Nidra Workshop: The Thin Place

A warm welcome to the November Nidra Workshop: The Thin Place.
Yoga nidra is a guided lying down meditation practice that brings deep relaxation and allows you to work creatively with the subconscious.

It’s the ‘Thin Time’ of the year: with the darkening days our memory, dreaming, shadow selves and the whole cast of our inner life come to the surface. Yoga Nidra helps us access the liminal spaces, the places in between. In this workshop you can identify the interior aspects you wish to work with this winter season.

This is a workshop for anyone, including those new to yoga or yoga nidra. In this afternoon workshop being ‘able’ is more about the willingness to go within and use the breath than trained physical strength or flexibility. Experienced practitioners will have a chance to explore nidra more deeply.

Yoga Nidra and Sleep

Yoga Nidra definitely helps with insomnia; students who suffer from this regularly report improved sleep, ‘That’s the best night’s sleep I’ve had in seven months’ (since bereavement). ‘ I slept for 12 hours solidly without moving. My husband couldn’t believe it.’
A recent Guardian article on insomnia wrote:
To the wakeful, insomnia can feel like the loneliest affliction in the world. But an estimated third of British adults suffer from chronic insomnia… Between 1993 and 2007, the number of people in the UK who visited their doctor complaining of insomnia nearly doubled, while NHS data shows, in the past decade, a tenfold increase in the number of prescriptions written for melatonin, the hormone that regulates sleep.’
The deep relaxation that Nidra offers deep release. Let go and sleep.

Here’s feedback for Yoga Nidra workshops to encourage you to join us:

A deeply penetrating experience into relaxation and mind consciousness. An experience I will want to repeat many times. LG

I was feeling very disconnected from myself. Today I feel so much more grounded and reconnected with the universe. I love that we all felt like a little family and the energy built up was truly empowering. Cannot say thank you enough. DH

A wonderful practice, and very well-timed for me. It’s had a significantly profound effect on me at a point in my life where I’m leaving my career and moving forward into new things. Angela, Tavistock

Just what I needed to rebirth, go inward and rest. The body and mind just wanted to feel contentment, without attaching anything to outcome. I got just this. PW-P

Yesterday was a truly wonderful experience. I feel an amazing sense of clarity today. I also slept for 13 hours solidly… Thank you so much. LC
