Yoga Nidra Programme – Deep Rest

Come home to yourself in this ten week body-mind restoration Yoga Nidra programme where you can experience the technique in person.

As you rest, you will be guided into a relaxation by my voice. Sometimes focusing on the breath, sometimes on the body, sometimes on sensation, ...

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is loosely translated as 'Yoga-Sleep; since yoga means union of the body-mind, therefore 'union of the body and mind in a deeply relaxed state'. The practise is quite simple. Lying down or sitting supported, so that you can totally relax, all you need to do is listen and feel. It is a different technique to a meditation, and it is not a trance. You are very safe. You may fall asleep, and although this is not the aim, it can be what is needed for you so don't worry too much. The practice of yoga and deep relaxation has been found to reduce anxieties and ...

Meditation

There are so many different types of meditation. Some contain movement; some contain stillness. Some have breathing practices; some have visualisations. Some have eyes open, some closed. The common element is focus. As the mind stills, with regular meditation practice, it is able to recognise when it is wandering. At this point we can direct it back gently to the focus point and remain present. Daily commitment is advised to get the most out of meditating, but don't judge yourself if you forget or just didn't have the time. Choose a suitable time and place, maybe ...

Reflexology

What is Reflexology? Working on the feet, hands or face, reflex points are pressed and gently stimulated to balance and soothe the body. This brings about a deep state of relaxation and encouraging homoeostasis. The therapy is based on the principle that the feet, face and hands contain 'mini-maps' of the whole body and that by applying pressure using the fingers or thumbs a reflexologist can have a positive effect on the corresponding parts of the body. Sensitive, trained hands may detect changes, which could be interpreted as imbalances in the body. By working on ...
