Yoga Nidra for Women

December Invest in Rest Nidra TBC

Do you feel battered by the last 6 months of Global Pandemic stress and uncertainty?
Do you feel like you have been holding space for everyone – your children, your friends, your neighbours, the NHS, the community – that there has been nothing left for you?
Do you feel emotionally drained and mentally exhausted?

Then this 90 minute Yoga Nidra is for you.

You need to be able to reset your system, restore some energy and replenish your vitality. Now, more than ever, taking time for yourself is not a luxury but a necessity. Now, more than ever, you need to be at your best. You deserve to give this time to yourself. 

The class is suitable for women at all stages of life, including pregnancy. No prior yoga experience necessary. Invite a friend and enjoy this wonderful session together!

There will be some time afterwards for a chat. Unfortunately, I am unable to provide any herbal teas as the kitchen facilities are no longer available due to increased hygiene protocols so please do bring a thermos with you if you have one! 

 

Anyone can practise Yoga Nidra – there are no specific techniques or special skills required. It can be practised anytime and is particularly beneficial as an antidote to the busy, stressful times we live in. It’s a wonderfully restorative practice that is excellent if you are feeling run-down or fatigued and/or need some time out to focus on self-care. It is safe to practice in pregnancy and can help you regenerate at all other life stages. When practised regularly, Yoga Nidra can be equivalent to several hours sleep!

Yoga Nidra helps:
* activate the relaxation response
* improve the functioning of your nervous and endocrine systems
* balance left and right brain
* regenerate and repair cells
* decrease anxiety and lift your mood

In Yoga Nidra classes, we move through some gentle stretches to prepare the body to lie (or sit) in comfortable stillness. Then we will move onto the practice itself, which brings awareness to the body and breath in specific ways to trigger the relaxation response, before gradually bringing the mind back to a waking state.
