This workshop can be enjoyed on its own or as a part of two workshops of three hours each. Immerse yourself in the relaxing, meditative practice also known as ‘sleep of the sages’.
Yoga nidra is an ancient Indian practice that allows you to consciously explore the different stages of wakefulness, dreaming and deep sleep by utilising relaxation techniques, breathing exercises and visualisations.
Laurent will lead this monthly restorative and rejuvenating masterclass, aimed at helping you to learn, and to practice, the art of conscious sleep or Yoga Nidra.
Yoga Nidra is a deep relaxation practice; a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation in which the distractions of the brain are contained, and the mind is allowed to be free. During the practice, one appears to be asleep, but the consciousness is functioning at a deeper level of awareness. This practice has had a profound transformative effect on those who initiate its powers.
This workshop about meditation is a clear, precise and simple introduction to help you establish and support a strong and fun practice. This unique and non-dogmatic approach is a great opportunity to experience a broad range of techniques which are derived from the universal teachings which includes mindfulness, Spanda, Advaita, Vedic and Eastern/Western spiritual philosophies. Plus, from Laurent’s own discoveries, practice and inner work methods coming from his teachers and people who have inspired him.Find out more »
Last Autumn, Laurent held a workshop entitled ‘The Foundation of Pranayama and Breathwork’. It served as an introduction to classical and more recent breath techniques and went on to explore and discover the mechanics of the breath. We also looked at breathwork techniques to strengthen and balance our breathing.
A key component of a complete classical yogic practice is mastering the 8 classical pranayama breaths. According to the Pradipika (one of the three ancient manuals on hatha yoga), pranayama techniques are divided into three categories: balancing, tranquilising and vitalising.
This two and a half hour, multi-layered yoga workshop will help us to explore and discover the area that we call the lower body. It will have a particular focus on the roles and the multiple functions of the psoas muscle, the diaphragm and what we call in many physical fitness classes the ‘core’.
This workshop is not merely about giving you a six pack, instead, it is a holistic practice which will look at the different ways the above muscles influence our health, our body, our breathing, our energies, and our physical practice. Furthermore, we will interrogate how they connect and work together to help us feel secure and balanced in our bodies.
