Sunday night rest & relaxation
Many of my students have told me that they love the guided relaxation at the end of the class and feel it is the "best bit" and wish it could be longer. In response to this I now offer a once a month Sunday night rest and relaxation class which will focus specifically on deep relaxation and yoga nidra.
Yoga nidra translates as "the sleep of the yogis" and aims to create a balance between relaxing deeply in the body and being alert and clear in the mind. Just a twenty minute practice is thought to be as restorative as two hours sleep. It is a practice that I use regularly myself for a range of situations such as:
- restore energy levels when feeling depleted,
- managing insomnia
- allowing my body to take deep and healing rest
- release physical tension
- reduce stress
This session will be a blend of practices to let go of muscular, emotional and mental tensions. Some of these practices will be contemporary guided relaxations and some follow a traditional yoga nidra approach. Each session will also contain elements of breathwork and meditation to compliment the relaxation experience.

"Most people sleep without resolving their tensions,
This is termed nidra.
Nidra means sleep, no matter what or why,
But yoga nidra means sleep after throwing off the burdens,
It is a blissful, higher quality altogether."
Yoga nidra - The blissful relaxation by Swami Satyananda Saraswati
