Practice The Art of Relaxation

with Paul Sneddon

Join us for a deeply restorative experience with our resident teacher, Paul. On Friday evening, June 14th, we are offering a special 90-minute Yoga Nidra class designed to guide you into a state of profound relaxation and inner peace.

Yoga Nidra, also known as yogic sleep, is a powerful meditation technique that promotes deep relaxation and healing. During this practice, you will be guided through a systematic method of complete relaxation, while maintaining full consciousness. It is designed to bring you to the edge of sleep, where your body can deeply rest and rejuvenate, while your mind remains calm and alert. Yoga Nidra is known for its ability to reduce stress, anxiety, insomnia, and to promote overall well-being.

$35 for non-members. $25 for members and yoga teacher training students.


What to expect?

In this 90-minute session, you will experience a gentle introduction to the practice and philosophy of Yoga Nidra, set in a serene and nurturing environment that supports deep relaxation. You'll receive step-by-step guidance through the stages of Yoga Nidra, which include body scanning, breath awareness, and visualisation techniques designed to release physical, mental, and emotional tension. This session offers you an opportunity to reconnect with your inner self, cultivating a profound sense of tranquility and well-being.

What are the benefits of Yoga Nidra?

Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep, offers a variety of benefits that promote overall well-being and inner peace. Through deep relaxation techniques, Yoga Nidra helps you release physical, mental, and emotional tension, providing relief from everyday stressors and promoting a sense of calm.

Practicing Yoga Nidra regularly can significantly improve the quality of your sleep. By calming the mind and relaxing the body, it helps you achieve deeper, more restful sleep patterns. Yoga Nidra facilitates emotional healing by creating a safe space for you to explore and release emotional blockages. It allows you to cultivate self-awareness and develop healthier responses to challenging emotions.

This practice heightens your awareness and mindfulness. By guiding you through body scanning, breath awareness, and visualisation techniques, Yoga Nidra helps you develop a greater sense of self-awareness and inner clarity. One of the primary benefits of Yoga Nidra is deep physical relaxation. By systematically relaxing each part of the body, it helps release muscular tension and promotes overall physical relaxation and rejuvenation.

Yoga Nidra offers a holistic approach to relaxation and well-being, benefiting both the body and mind. Whether you are seeking stress relief, better sleep, emotional healing, heightened awareness, or physical relaxation, Yoga Nidra can support you in achieving your goals and cultivating a deeper sense of peace within yourself.

Who can attend?

This class is suitable for everyone, regardless of age or level of experience. Whether you are new to meditation and Yoga Nidra or have been practicing for years, you will find this class accessible and deeply beneficial.
