Meet our new Teacher Angela at our Rise and Shine Classes
Yoga Nidra translates as the sleep of the Yogi’s, it is a relaxation practice, but it is much more than that. A guided meditation that induces a conscious switch of function from the Sympathetic Nervous System to that of the Parasympathetic Nervous System. The change is one from activity with elevated blood pressure and increased pulse rate, to a state of lowered blood pressure and relaxed pulse. As a result the Autonomic Nervous System, which is normally beyond our conscious control, responds indirectly by restoring functional balance Sympathetic Nervous System and Parasympathetic Nervous System. The Endocrine System is also regulated in much the same way. This produces a feeling of wellbeing, inner balance, harmony and ultimately optimum health.
Yoga Nidra is practised lying down.
Please bring your yoga mat, a blanket and anything else you might like to feel warm and comfortable.
75 min yoga nidra practice followed by herbal tea to revive the senses.
