mind-body

deep yogic meditation

A space to fully rest and re-learn how to be. Surrender to your whole experience.

By practising Yoga Nidra, we can learn to access a state somewhere between ‘asleep’ and ‘awake’. As we take time to rest, we learn to be with our whole self – our whole experience – with a dreamlike quality, more spacious than our thinking mind. Rather than judging, choosing and refusing what we do and don’t like about ourselves and about life, we have the opportunity to be with ourselves in a new, more open, less judgmental way. 

During Yoga Nidra, you learn to pay close attention to the naturally arising phenomena of your body and mind. You neither invent nor deny anything. Yoga Nidra is not a strategy of self-improvement. Listening and welcoming are you tools, and Yoga Nidra is your process for learning how to listen and welcome all that you are and all that life is – without intention for anything to be other than it is.

I was trained at the Ekhart Academy. I use James Reeves’ method. Want to learn more? Read his and Gabrielle Brown’s wonderful book The Book of Rest- Stop Striving and Start Being

“Yoga Nidra reveals that your body, mind and the entire universe live in you, in your awareness.”

Dr Richard Miller

frequently asked questions

An ancient practice; the deepest, but very natural, state of meditation.

We learn to acknowledge and welcome rather than resist and withdraw from every movement that arises in our life.

You learn to pay close attention to the naturally arising phenomena of your body and mind.

No. It is your process for learning how to listen and welcome all that you are and all that life is – without intention for anything to be other than it is.

We intentionally enter into a state that approximates sleep. However, we remain aware (the paradoxical process of being awake while asleep!!)

No. You don’t need any experience.

Not really, but your body temperature may drop as you enter into a relaxation state. Therefore you may want to bring a blanket/towel, or warm socks.

Listen to your body and be kind to yourself. Avoid alcohol and caffeine. Drink plenty of water.
