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.
In this 4.5-hour workshop, we will be gently, simply and gradually introduced to breath work and pranayama by exploring various stages and steps towards a safe pursuit of these essential techniques and practices.Find out more »
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.
During this workshop, we will explore different ways to open and stimulate the upper body with techniques coming from classical yoga with asanas and pranayama, but also from other methods to give you a wide variety of techniques with which to let the upper body reclaim its freedom. The workshop will also consist of simple movements that you can repeat at home in your own time, in order to make sure you continue to feel the benefits.
We will learn to cleanse and expand our lungs to enable easier, more nourishing breathing. We will also release and strengthen the respiratory muscles, open the joints and calm the nervous system to create a more fluid and lighter breathing action to facilitate better health.
