Yoga Nidra workshops

In times of change 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!

Insomnia sufferers keep coming back for the great nights’ sleep that follow
Thank you so much for the Yoga Nidra session. I had an amazing sleep last night. I noticed during the nidra that I felt my heart area becoming warm. Maybe this is fanciful on my part! But I went with it and it felt – for the want of a better word – reassuring. Margaret, Cork
