Pregnancy Restorative Yoga with Nidra
A really relaxing yoga class of gentle movements followed by yoga nidra. This class doesn't need a yoga mat and can be done in limited space or even in bed. Start with seated joint mobility, restorative forward folds and hip openers, all preparing your mind and body for total relaxation through the practice of yoga nidra. A great practice for when you are feeling tired, in need of a 'yogic power nap' or to prepare you for bedtime. Options for using bolsters to support are used, but you can use pillows or cushions as well. This is a pregnancy yoga class, specially created for mums-to-be to be able to find time to relax, but you may also want to try this is you're not pregnant for deep relaxation.
Honour Your Cycle: Winter
A beautiful yoga nidra (yogic sleep) for menstruation, especially designed to ease flow, ease pain and feel nourished and supported. Uma uses the sound of Tibetan singing bowls to help us to drop into a deep, nourishing relaxation. The first 6 minutes 40 talks through setting up for yoga nidra, how to create a comfortable yoga nidra so that you feel held and supported. You may wish to start at 6.40 if you'd like to get straight into your yoga nidra after you've set up. You may enjoy a hot water bottle for this class. We recommend a scarf to wrap around the waist and a blanket to keep warm and you will need to set yourself up next to your sofa or a chair, so that your knees are resting up, and your ankles higher than your knees.
Honour Your Cycle: Spring
Honour completion of your bleed cycle and take time to savour the spring moment, when your energy returns, but you want to honour, not depleat your energy reserves. It's easy at this time to feel energised but this can depleat us. This nourishing, gentle yoga class focuses on breathing, mudra and gentle movements from heart to womb, letting the body soak up the benefits and class ends with a long relaxation, short yoga nidra. You will need pillows or cushions to sit on and a bolster and blankets for a long relaxation.
