About the event

Yoga nidra, otherwise known as yogic sleep, is a guided practice, practiced lying down, usually on your back, or in a seated position.

It allows you to access a deep sense of awareness and combines the capacity for present moment awareness, with deep relaxation. The practice invites you to explore the states of wakefulness, dreaming and deep sleep.

The beauty of this practice is that without effort, it allows us to access deep healing and meditative states, bringing us in touch with our true nature, that which is expansive, unified and whole. These states can open us up to new possibilities and allow us access to creativity, a more rested life, and joy.

Scientific Benefits of Yoga Nidra include:

Improved mood

Reduced anxiety

Improved ability to focus

Improved memory

Enhanced readiness - 60% more dopamine in the brain after a yoga nidra practice.
