End your week and begin your weekend by letting go of whatever it is that may be holding you back with a reflective gentle pranayama and restorative practice followed by yoga nidra (yogic sleep). You will be lead through gentle restorative postures, pranayama (breathing) practices and meditation followed by a long yoga nidra (deep relaxation). You do not have to have practiced yoga to benefit from this class. You will learn to relax your mind and body, improve your breathing and be guided through a yoga nidra to help you feel restored and enhance your sleep.
The studio is fully equipped but should you wish to bring along a along a blanket and pillow please do, eye pillows provided should you wish to use. Be prepared for a good night’s sleep following the deep relaxation. Many people forget or don’t know how to relax their nervous system, relaxing in a conscious way is very different from sleeping, watching TV, reading a book. Many people spend their lives rushing around and their bodies are in a state of ‘fight or flight’ mode much of the time, which can elevate the stress hormone ‘cortisol’. In this session we aim to reduce high levels of cortisol and let the Parasympathetic Nervous system to do it’s job of maintaining ‘Homeostasis’ and relaxing your body/nervous system.
