Yoga Nidra

Next Yoga Nidra for Women TBC

Women all tend to hold a lot of emotional space for others…we are the container into which our friends/colleagues/children pour their frustrations, anxieties and stresses and we often spend a lot of time worrying, nurturing and caring for all those significant others. All this supporting, organising and loving is absolutely worthy and necessary (our society wouldn’t function without it) but it is also EXHAUSTING. In these strange times of Covid-19 social distancing, it has never been more exhausting in my experience!

This class will be a luxurious 90 minutes, including some time afterwards for a virtual chat. I encourage you all to have some herbal tea and a treat ready to go for the final part of the class. Should you be in lockdown, I will bring these to you.

The class is suitable for women at all stages of life, including pregnancy. It will be nurturing, deeply nourishing and restful. No prior yoga experience necessary. Invite a friend and enjoy this wonderful session over the ether together!

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.
