Date: Friday 20th December

Time: 6.30-8.30pm

Price: £15.00. Bookings only

Think cosy and warm, calm and candlelight. Think solace at the Solstice and this is what you'll get in this soothing and nurturing Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra practice.

Take time out before Christmas to rest and restore your body at what can be a busy time of the year. We will be taking it slow in this practice, starting with gentle movement and connection to breath and then allowing ourselves plenty of time to settle fully into Restorative Yoga Postures; using bolsters, blocks, bricks and blankets to fully support ourselves as we sink into a deep state of rest. Holding the supported postures for between 5-10 minutes will allow your mind and body the opportunity to soften and yield into a state of deepest relaxation, re-setting and restoring yourself to meet the longer and brighter days to come.

You will finish your practice with a guided Winter Solstice Yoga Nidra and Meditation, welcoming the Return of the Light on the shortest day of the year.

Just Yoga Nidra, no more, no less. Yoga Nidra is a powerful technique in which you learn to relax consciously. It is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation. The term yoga nidra is derived from two Sanskrit words, yoga meaning union or one-pointed awareness, and nidra which means sleep. During the practice of yoga nidra, you appear to be asleep, but the consciousness is functioning at a deeper level of awareness. For this reason, yoga nidra is often referred to as psychic sleep or deep relaxation with inner awareness. In this threshold state between sleep and wakefulness, contact with the subconscious and unconscious dimensions occurs spontaneously.

In yoga nidra, the state of relaxation is reached by turning inwards, away from outer experiences. If the consciousness can be separated from external awareness and from sleep, it becomes very powerful and can be applied in many ways, for example, to develop the memory, increase knowledge and creativity, or transform one's nature.

Join me in the beautiful Yoga Tree Studio for a monthly guided conscious relaxation experience by candlelight.
