Learn about different breath techniques and how to move with the breath. Prepare for poses such as downward facing dog, cat and cow, twists, sphinx and child’s pose, and move through half sun salutations. Also expect an introduction to meditation and demystify Sanskrit terms. Finally, experience savasana and rediscover the lost art of rest. You may wish to have two blocks to hand.
Yoga Nidra Elements Series: Fire
This yoga nidra stokes our fire within. It takes us on a journey to empowerment and invites us to stand in our power. If you have never practiced Yoga Nidra before you are in for a treat! It is an ancient practice known as Yogic Sleep. It takes place laying down so is accessible to all levels. The teacher then takes you on a guided journey with their voice. It leads you into a deep state of bodily relaxation, then moves onto quiet the mind and open the heart. This practice is truly powerful and deeply healing.
