‘Through the exquisite practice of Yoga Nidra, I discovered an unshakable equilibrium that is present under all circumstances and situations.’ Richard Miller
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 and focus the mind on a single object; 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 at ease – with our deep inner intelligence. Scientific research confirms that these contemplatice practices can help reduce anxiety, boost immunity, improve sleep and promote healing.
The covid pandemic has been stressful for many of us, so I am offering free meditation classes on Sunday evenings from 6.00-6.30pm. Please get in touch if you’d like to come.
Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) is a deeply restful contemplative practice, practiced lying down, 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 exercises to release tension and establish a free flow of 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, chant and visualisation. The Sunday evening meditation classes focus on simple practices suitable for all.
All students are given recordings for home practice.
