Yoga Nidra is a deeply restorative and integrative practice that takes us into the present moment which is the only moment we have. And while it may look like you are just lying down and deeply relaxing, it goes deeper than that. This is the practice where we really learn how to welcome and greet ourselves exactly as we are and one that can lead to deep healing on all levels. Yoga Nidra provides tools for navigating life with a sense of calmness and peace, learning how to welcome and respond to whatever conditions arise, without the need to ‘fix’ anything. With regular practice, we learn to live with a sense of ease that infiltrates into all areas of our lives.
A session of yoga nidra guides us through sensing the body as pure energy and includes breath awareness, sensing emotions and beliefs and guides us into an experience of joy and well-being. This timeless practice originates from the highest teachings of yogic philosophy and leads us into our true state of omnipresence where we can truly experience lasting peace, joy and healing.
Shock, trauma, pain, stress and anxiety impact the health of the nervous system and can lock us into a state of constant hyper-arousal that drains us of energy and enthusiasm. Regular practice of Yoga Nidra works on restoring the health of the nervous system and calming down the anxiety response, bringing an increased sense of calmness and well-being back into our lives. Yoga Nidra is also a recognised practice for effective pain management. It will help you sleep well too.
How is Yoga Nidra Practiced in a Group Class?
Yoga Nidra is usually done lying down in a comfortable position (though a chair is also OK) and you are guided, just being open to listening to the guidance you receive. You are guided into feelings and associations that give you a sense of comfort and well-being, creating a safe place inside which you can access both during the practice, and also in your daily life, as a centre of peace and refuge. We then move into the main practice, working with body and breath awareness and whatever else arises. Our breath and mind quieten down and we fall into a deeper place of awareness and peace. As we come out of the session, care is taken to ensure you leave feeling grounded and present. You will usually feel peaceful and relaxed and sleep well that evening.
Please note you will need to bring a yoga/camping/sunbed mat, blanket and 2 cushions.
