YOGA

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra or Conscious Deep Sleep

 

‘In yoga nidra you leave the waking state, go through the dreaming state, yet remain fully awake.’  Swami Jnaneshvara Bharati

 

Facilitator: Cath Hanlon  Cost: £8 per individual class or £39 for block of six classes

Thursday mornings 10-11.15am

 

The practise of yoga nidra can induce incredible calmness, quietness and clarity. It is a state of deep conscious sleep - during which you may discover almost complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation.

 

You are gently guided to relax every part of your body and induce a state of deep relaxation, similar to the slow, calm and tranquil state experienced prior to sleep.  Breathing and thinking gradually slow allowing you to reach a state of peace and deep repose.

 

During a yoga nidra class you will be asked to wear comfortable clothes, lie on a yoga mat, wrapped in warm blankets, and follow the spoken instructions of your yoga teacher.

 

The practise of yoga nidra involves a series of specific stages which guide the participant into a state of deep relaxation. The stages are:

 

  • Preliminary relaxation of the body
  • Rotation of body awareness throughout the whole body
  • Conscious breathing
  • Feeling and sensations to bring relaxation at an emotional level
  • Mental relaxation through visualisation
  • A return to full awareness

 

The Benefits of yoga nidra:

  • Encourages stress release
  • Reduce feelings of anxiety and tension
  • Promotes mental and physical wellbeing
  • Can help to lower blood pressure

 

One hour of Yoga Nidra can be as restful as four hours good sleep.
