Yoga Nidra for Every Body with Gongs and Singing Bowls @ Open Source Arts | England | United Kingdom

Yoga Nidra with Gongs and Singing Bowls. Lie back in our studio and join us as we float on a cloud of deep relaxation through meditation and sound waves…

Yoga Nidra is an effective and efficient relaxation and meditation technique derived from ancient tantra and developed by Swami Satyananda of the Bihar school of Yoga.
Sometimes called ‘sleep with awareness’ because it takes us to the edge of sleep, where we are deeply relaxed, yet awake and aware. The ultimate goal being to increase self awareness. Yoga Nidra is easily accessible for all, the practice simply requires you to rest comfortably and listen to a specific set of spoken instructions all the while on your back in Savanasa pose.
The instructions invite you to silently rotate awareness around different parts of the body, systematically calming the nervous system, soothing muscular aches and engaging the mind and breath, allowing mental tensions to pause.
As a bonus, practitioners report that the relaxation achieved in a typical 20-40 minute Yoga Nidra session is as refreshing as 4 hours sleep!
These unique special yoga sessions will be led by Sophie Hutchinson, professional Yoga and Dance teacher. Sophie’s classes are open to all, regardless of prior experience! You are warmly invited to come and find pleasure in a healthy and holistic yoga practice.
Mats and blankets are available but limited, so you’re welcome to bring your own mat and blanket to make yourself extra comfortable.
This is Yoga for EVERYONE, regardless of experience!
Price: £7 (ticket in advance)
