Yoga Nidra + Sound Bath
Dream Yoga, Sleep Yoga, Psyche Yoga...is truly magical.
Do you have trouble sleeping?
Are you suffering from stress, chronic pain, anxiety?
Have you tried meditating, but find it difficult?
Are you turned off by physical Yoga or suffering from an injury?
Do you wish to improve your memory or/and unleash your creative self?
Yoga Nidra includes no movement, stretching or strengthening. All you need to do is lie down in a comfortable position and be open to receive all the benefits. This deep relaxing technique will rejuvenate your body/ mind and heal you on an emotional level.
It is a power practice of the mind, but it is effortless and is deeply effective on the body which will remain in ‘shivasana’ pose (lying down).
In Yoga Nidra you’ll experience a state known as ‘the witness self’, whereby your awareness is suspended between the stages of dream and sleep. This is why you will feel like you’ve been on a little holiday......a restful state, a place away from your daily problems, while solving them at the same time. When you come back, you are renewed and more detached, which enables you to see things more clearly. You will feel energised, yet grounded.
Your body is renewed on a cellular level, hence 20 minutes of Yoga Nidra is equal to 2 hours of sleep. In this 2.5 hour event your will receive a 20 minute Nidra, a forty minute Nidra accompanied with a mini sound bath and an opportunity to meet others and share your experience of the journey you received.
In this state your muscles soften, giving you the same results of a massage. Some would say it is even deeper, because the effects of sound healing will transmit and vibrate within you, for days afterwards.
In my repertoire you will hear different sounds, such as: shurti box, singing bowls, percussion instruments, shamanic drum and the naked voice. These musical instruments will be used either as sound effects to enhance the theme of the Nidra; by way of a Sound Bath or played over you to aid healing.
Sound Healing is a growing phenomenon that you don’t have to believe in to receive its positives effects. Just sit back and enjoy!

My Yoga Nidras are rarely abstract, I tend to be inspired by the calendar year we live by, seasons, festive holidays, healing techniques, life as well as life beyond. Hence you will experience a movement of mental lucidity between a dream/ sleep, state of awareness.
This is a fully equipped venue, but for your own comfort, you may wish to bring your own blanket and cushion.
Please arrive on time so you may be admitted without a problem. Some Nidras’ can induce ‘out of body sensations’ so if you suffer from a mental health condition of disassociation, I do not advise the practice of Yoga Nidra for you.
Please check parking restrictions and be mindful not to block anyone.
