This workshop is for new and previous participants in yoga nidra. There will be a focus on finding, honing or developing your sankalpa, which is Sanskrit for intention, life-purpose, heart’s prayer, and can be an affirmation that goes deep into your psyche to support you in your aims.
What do you really want? Yoga nidra is also an opportunity for aligned information to rise from the subconscious. Let’s bypass the brain, conditioning and other people’s needs and expectations to find your path.
It’s Sivaratri, the festival of Siva, the yogi God. He symbolises the shedding of the old to step into the new. At this time of Spring let’s renew.
You’ll also experience deep relaxation and explore the benefits of yoga nidra for taking away. This workshop takes place at this amazing yoga studio on Dartmoor, the Barefoot Barn in Chagford. You’ll later receive the recordings of the day via dropbox too.
Sunday February 18th 11am – 3.30pm £35
Early booking advised
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.
The session includes:
- energy freeing yoga movements
- Two yoga nidras, deep guided relaxation practices
- exercise on finding your true goal (sankalpa)
- guidance on resources for practising at home
Bring a light lunch or snack to have at 12.45 (not enough time to go out). We will start at 11.00 so please aim to arrive by 10.45.
Please park in Chagford car park and walk to the Barefoot Barn (15 minutes). Guidance from the Barefoot Barn website http://barefootbarn.org/
Here’s recent 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

Other workshops coming up
I have experienced Yoga Nidra before but nothing compared to this. Fiona is a wonderful teacher and her slow soothing tone helped to enable me to gain deep relaxation and empowering answers to some long term deep rooted questions. I will recommend Fiona’s workshops to all I know – this has been a life changing experience. GL
I had been having a difficult time in the week leading up to the workshop and it turned out I couldn’t have been headed anywhere more perfect. Fiona instantly makes you feel like you have stepped into the home of a dear friend. I think without realising it I had gone to the yoga nidra workshop to get confirmation and clarity that I was on the right path. And I most certainly came away feeling a new sense of calm and purpose as I approach the next stage of my life. I actually felt surprisingly emotional afterwards, but in a lovely way, full of humility and gratitude. I would highly recommend attending one of Fiona’s wonderful workshops whether you are looking to deepen your practice or just need to take some time out from modern life! JP, Tavistock
Thank you for the extraordinary experience today, it was so profound and enlightening. The feeling of being completely safe and surrounded by such a lovely feeling of warmth and peace too. It is something I would definitely want to repeat on a regular basis. LG, Tavistock
