Human life has become very fast, hectic and demanding. The present lifestyle requires constant adjustments on the part of the individual to keep up with the pace of daily challenges. When we fail to make a proper adjustment according to the demands of the situation, a state of negative stress - or distress - develops in our personality, which gives rise to mental or psychological problems. Yoga Nidra is an efficient method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation while the waking consciousness directs the unconscious to relax. Yoga Nidra is a 'sleep' where all the burdens, stress, strain, anxiety are thrown off to attain a more blissful state of awareness, a relaxation much more intense than ordinary sleep.
A very special feature of Yoga Nidra is setting the Sankalpa, a positive resolve about one's aims in life. The relaxed body and mind are ideal soil in which to plant this resolve.
The workshop will start with a gentle asana practice to prepare the body for the actual Nidra practice, a 1-hour guided meditation in savasana (corpse pose). A Tibetan bowl bath will follow to release blocked energy and to bring the body back into alignment, creating the conditions for a deep healing. Afterwards there will be time for questions and answers about personal experiences.
Please bring warm clothes and a blanket.
