Yoga Nidra – the creative Medicine
December 29, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm GMT
Yoga Nidra is an ancient mindfulness practice from India that translates as “yogic sleep”. It induces a state of deep rest for the physical body and conscious mind, whilst connecting to heightened states of awareness on deeper layers of consciousness.
In this end-of-year holiday edition, we will integrate the essence of the topics we visited in 2021 during 10 seminars. Distilling and expanding previous information I will offer a space that guides you to deeper insight, taking you on a journey into creative consciousness where alchemy happens, challenge can transform, empowerment, resilience or healing can become a first-hand experience.
Our Yoga Nidra practice will help us to unwind, to let-go and to restore our well-being in mind, body and soul in energising and replenishing ways. We will connect to creative resources that endow us with inspiration and courage, feelings that help us create a powerful outlook for a positive 2022.
Yoga Nidra is usually done lying down or sitting up comfortably, after warming the body with gentle Yoga stretches and breathing exercises. No prior knowledge of Yoga is needed in order to participate, just openness for a new experience. Everyone is guided to the empowering realisation that healing is never more than a thought away.
Please bring for your practice:
- Wear warm and comfortable clothes
- A blanket
- A chair (dining room)
- A place to lie down or sit comfortably, i.e. a yoga mat, a sofa or comfy chair
- Drinking water
- An alarm clock (mobile telephone is ok for that, too)
