Course Yoga Nidra

5-6pm | £35 | 5 weeks | £8 per session | Tutor Ishwara

A powerful yet gentle deep relaxation practice, Yoga Nidra is especially useful for promoting normal deep sleep, mental calm and physical ease free of tension and pain.

What will the course or workshop cover and how will it be taught?

Yoga Nidra (yoga sleep) is essentially the practice of the deepest relaxation you experience between waking and sleeping. It is a type of meditation carried out while lying down, warm and comfortable under blankets.

Each week the instructor will build on the previous weeks practice to develop those attributes of stillness, breath awareness, focus and relaxation on the levels of body and mind.

Ishwara is passionate about the benefits of a regular Yoga practice which, when aligned to a healthy lifestyle and healthy diet, helps to maintain our body and mind in optimal conditions of vitality and inner peace. Yoga is also proven to be a useful tool that helps in unlocking the vast potential of the self to overcome difficulties, achieve happiness and life goals.
