FALL INTO RELAXATION WITH YOGA NIDRA

 Our next Yoga Workshop

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 29th 4-6PM

Facilitated by Catriona Mc Cormack

 yoga nidra

Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation practice designed deeply relax and release tension held in the subconscious and unconscious. This practice restores balance to mind, body and spirit. Through pranayama (breath work), gentle asana and guided visualization we can ease forward into this time of year.

As we transition into the cooler seasons the air and space element tend to increase, known in Ayurveda as vata energy. When our vata is in excess we may have trouble focusing and being still and can feel anxious, restless and fearful. We will use this class to set a sankalpaor, seed of intention to move forward with ease and clarity.

Yoga Nidra quiets and calms the nervous system. One yoga nidra practice is equivalent to four hours of restful sleep. Research has also shown that Yoga Nidra can strengthen immune system, regulate blood pressure, balance nervous system and greatly help with insomnia.

Why do a Yoga Workshop?

Perhaps you attend yoga classes regularly and you’ve even established a home practice. If you’d like to deepen and your further your practice and learn more about a specific aspect of the practice yoga workshops can offer these experiences beyond those usually included in a typical 60-90-minute class.

Yoga Workshop

A workshop normally lasts for 2-3 hours or takes place over a long weekend. Workshops focus on a specific aspect of yoga, asanas, breathing practice, meditation or a particular limb (guidelines) of yoga. The possibilities are completely different but they all have one thing in common, participating in the practice of yoga.

Time restraints

Time restraints. In today’s world, we’re under a lot of time pressure and we can sometimes rush to and from a yoga class and don’t benefit as much as we could be. A workshop offers more time to experiment with postures, more detailed instruction will happen as time allows this.

Deepen your practice.

The beauty of a workshop is that there is more time to absorb what your body is telling you, ask questions, analyze practices, postures, breathing techniques and deepen your awareness and knowledge. Asana is a beautiful way to develop self-knowledge, but it’s the tip of the yoga iceberg. Hidden depths are waiting to be discovered. Workshops can be very rewarding.

Shift your awareness

Shift your awareness. The intensive focus of a workshop may answer questions you didn’t even know you had. Focusing on yoga for a couple of hours or throughout a weekend also shifts your awareness.

Find your tribe

Find your tribe. You’ll connect with a group interested in the same themes, and have more opportunities to interact while you share experiences on the mat and off. Let your yoga mat take you places….for instance, pick a teacher, studio or venue you’ve been wanting to visit, who knows where the journey will take you.

Renew your commitment

Renew your commitment. Trying something new can help you appreciate your practice all over again. Especially good times to shake things up are the change in seasons, holidays, birthdays or whenever you need renewed energy and a fiercer focus on your practice!
