An opportunity to explore some gentle movements before climbing into your nidra nest (check out Guidance Instructions and nest ideas) and embark on a deep listening voyage, an extraordinary internal journey of remembering and rediscovering your very own healing resonance, exploring the five elements found in the body as an expression of Mother Earth. Yoga nidra is a state between the conscious and unconscious, a gentle yet powerful resource for healing, insight and empowerment.
Don't worry if you zone out or fall asleep during the class, you will be sent a link to the nidra recording to enjoy at your pleasure until the next class.
Please do let me know about any medical conditions affecting you such as diabetes, recent injuries, pregnancy... because while some of the practices might be beneficial, other practices should be modified or avoided for certain conditions.

The direct translation of the Sanskrit word, saucha, is purity, or cleanliness. The yogic path offers many weird and wonderful practices for the purification of the body, by cleansing from inside out, as well as eating and drinking food that are healthy and nutritious. Saucha is also about purity of energy, keeping our homes and environment clean and organised.
But the real gift of saucha is the purification of our minds. It is our grand teacher of self-love, for it asks us to place our judgements aside, and take a deeper look at everything we have labelled as ‘impure’ about ourselves. That deep sadness that follows us around? The impatient streak? Those ‘dirty’ little habits we have when we are alone?
