Online Yoga Nidra Workshops

Yoga nidra offers strong benefits

deep rest from the twin grip of monkey mind and conditioning

insight on inner processes and outer conundrums

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 lying down meditation for transformative rest and constructive dreaming.

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
Thank-you so much for last night (Friday Night Nidra). It was truly both amazing and beautiful. I was so relaxed, and still am, listening to the birds this morning. It seemed such a deep experience and I slept for hours afterwards. Julie, Okehampton
That was super relaxing thank you. I have no doubt it did me the world of good and I definitely feel rested. You have a lovely way of of teaching nidra. A lovely way to begin some time to unwind from an extremely stressful period. Much thanks Ruth, Oxford
I have participated in two online Yoga Nidra evening sessions via Zoom. Fiona creates a calm and caring atmosphere, offering thoughts on a particular theme and providing a caring and accepting space for participants to share their thoughts. We are also encouraged to do whatever we need to be as comfortable as possible. After some gentle yoga postures Fiona guides us through the Nidra, where it is possible to enter a state of deep relaxation as well as a special place between sleeping and being awake. Both times I went to bed soon after completing the Nidra, and I slept deeply and far better than usual. The next day I felt less anxious and my body felt nicely rested without the usual little aches and tensions. The Yoga Nidra is a very special experience mentally and physically, and I thoroughly recommend it. S, Normandy
