Yoga Nidra is about rest or conscious sleeping, like that dreamy phase just before you fall asleep.
Lying down on a mat and warm blankets, you are quietly guided to release tension in your whole body and then mindfully carm the chatter in your head, leading to a state of total relaxation for 45 minutes to an hour.
Yoga Nidra is amongst the deepest possible states of peacefulness while still remaining aware of your environment and also aware of just how still you have become. This has been found to be hugely beneficial in reducing tension and anxiety, and aiding restful sleep.
This is a magical candle light class running on once a month during the long dark evenings, summer time we will take it outdoors weather permitting where the setting sun will be our glow.
Begin with a lovely grounding meditation
Next flow quietly through a balanced range of asanas
Finish with quiet breathing in savasana
This is a class for those already familiar with yoga. It is a mellow, uplifting class, and enhanced with lots of gentle candlelight and inspiring music. An ideal way to round off your week and set yourself up for the weekend.
Mindfullness forms a part of every yoga class, and the practice of yoga often leads to an enquiry into Meditation as part of our daily lives.
Guidance in methods of Meditation and Mindfulness can help you to find the type of Meditation that works for you, be it active, quiet, focused or contemplative. This is still available online for individuals or groups.
Watch out for these being posted on the website and Facebook or sign-up to be notified in advance.
