Need an energy boost? Strengthen and stretch workshop with Yoga Nidra
Start this workshop by setting intentions and goals for how you want to feel moving forward towards Summer and what you want achieve.
Next you'll be guided through slow strengthening exercises and twists, to detox and invigorate.
As a contrast you'll then be guided through deeply restorative and gentle yoga poses, fully supported by bolsters, blankets and cushions. This contrast in the 2 halves of the practice will allow you to let go that little bit more.
Finish the practice with Yoga Nidra. What is yoga nidra? Nidra, meaning sleep, is a deep relaxation form of yoga, and a technique to awaken the connection between body, mind, and soul. The practice is like a deep sleep while you are still awake.
This ancient practice is becoming more popular as a form of meditation and mind-body therapy, and has multiple physical benefits. Below you'll find just 3 of the benefits of yoga nidra.
1. Reduce Your Stress
Suffering from hypertension, hypothyroidism, or poor sleep? Deep relaxation exercises are known to reduce blood pressure, reduce stress, and improve sleep.
They can also stimulate thyroid function, reduce the symptoms of chronic fatigue and adrenal insufficiency and aid in the recovery of muscle fatigue and repair.
2. Bring vibrancy Into Your Life
The practice of yoga Nidra has some pretty powerful psychological benefits as well. It can assist in healing psychological wounds and assists those dealing with depression and dependency.
3. Connect with Yourself
Taking this one step further, yoga nidra is also a way to connect with your deeper self. It restores the body, senses, and mind to their natural function and awakens a subconscious awareness that allows you to stop feeling disconnected. Instead you feel a sense of being whole again.
