Quiet the mind: A dreamy Yoga Nidra Meditation workshop | The Old Rectory Clinic | Saturday, 07. September 2019

When we pay attention to our breath, we are learning how to return to and remain in the present moment, to anchor ourselves in the here and now on purpose without judgement.Yoga Nidra, offers a safe space to explore what you need in the moment as well as an opportunity to work on releasing long-held emotions. Yoga Nidra is one of the best ways to remove deep-seated tensions and to improve your capacity to sleep peacefully. It reduces excess vata and in fact is a tridoshic energy balancing technique when practiced properly.As you practice Yoga Nidra you are guided deeper and deeper through the layers of your being, gradually releasing the more deep-seated tensions that prevent you going into deep states of recuperative sleep. As a result Yoga Nidra takes you into a conscious sleep-like state where you can gain all the benefits of sleep, including deep rest and better health.Yoga nidra, or yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is an immensely powerful meditation technique, and one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain.While the practitioner rests comfortably in Savasana (corpse pose), this systematic meditation takes you through the pancha maya kosha (five layers of self), leaving you with a sense of wholeness.Donna will be holding the space for you and guide you into simple techniques leaving you feeling more at peace within.Sleep and stress sufferers! - Yoga Nidra Relaxation technique improves the quality of sleep! Yoga Nidra is a powerful relaxation meditation technique performed in the lying position. It is one of the most beloved of all the relaxation-meditation techniques in the world today. This is because the technique is practical and easy to do and creates the deep rest and relaxation required for good health, mental peace and higher awareness.Getting deep rest is especially important in today’s busy world. The problem is that many of us carry our day-to-day tensions into sleep. Also constant stimulation by the technology that is supposed to make our lives better and to be more connected can easily over stimulate our nervous system, increase vata dosha (vata dosha is the energy pattern that drives our bodily movements and communications) and erode our ability to relax and rest. Constant engagement and stimulation results in excessive vata in the body and mind, which leads to disturbed sleeping patterns. Disturbed sleep detriments all aspects of life and can create a negative spiral of increasing stress, tension, exhaustion and ill health.The event is inside the beautiful surroundings of The Old Rectory Clinic. Parking available.Refreshments are included in the price of the ticket. 8 Spaces Available COST: Early Bird £18.00 (Valid yo until 15th August ) Thereafter £22.00
