'With repeated meditation practice, the expanse of the visible universe with all its qualities dissolves to nothing, to where there is only health and a great joy'. Lalla
Yoga Nidra / Meditation
The fast pace of modern life often leaves us feeling stressed and anxious as we try to split our attention between competing demands. Patañjali describes meditation (dhyāna) as ‘a continuous flow of single-pointed concentration’. In meditation we draw the senses of perception inwards; moving from the busyness of the external world to the still, spacious, silence within.
Yoga Nidra and Meditation enable us to connect with that aspect of the self which is innately peaceful and joyful; with our deep inner intelligence; with the ground of our being.
Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) is a deeply restful contemplative practice which restores energy, promotes healing and enables us to hear the wisdom of the heart. It is ideal for beginners but is also a lifelong practice whose riches unfold over time. Classes last 60 minutes and include gentle movement to release tension and free the breath.
Meditation classes last for 30 minutes and explore a variety of sitting practices which bring us into a spacious silence – including breath awareness, gaze, sense perceptions, sound and visualisation.
All Students are given recordings for home practice.
