Yoga Nidra

“Yoga Nidra is the hidden gem of all yoga practice, a great treasure, a potent meditative resource for healing, insight and empowerment.”

– Uma Dinsmore Tuli PHD

Yoga Nidra is an incredibly profound and transformative practice.  By creating a warm, cosy and safe space, students are able to nestle into a place of comfort and rest, where they are able to simply receive.  Yoga nidra is a practice that guides awareness through the sensations of the body, the movements of the breath and into a state of deep rest.  Experiences are unique to the individual as they travel through their own journeys within, but frequently report feelings of rejuvenation, warmth and a sense of held.  The nourishing and nurturing qualities of Yoga Nidra are incredibly supportive and all are welcome 🙂

Yoga Retreat in Spain 2019

Busy schedules, lots of responsibilities and external pressures are some of the seemingly insurmountable barriers people face in terms of practising yoga and finding time to meditate.  A yoga retreat is essentially a holding of space for people to be freed of these external influences and circumstances for a time, in which they can begin to explore and meet themselves in an undisturbed manner that is both authentic and nourishing.

Every individual will come to retreat with different needs, expectations and hopes.  All of which are valid.  Using all of the experiences I’ve had practising, teaching, training, attending and hosting retreats my aim is to create this holding of space in a way that is both supportive and safe, and spacious and dynamic.  The daily schedule incorporates movement and stillness, sound and silence, structure and free-flow.

Daily Schedule*:

9 – 11 am – yoga practice

11.30 – 1 pm – brunch

1 – 3 pm – free time

3 – 5 pm – workshop

5.30 – 7 pm – dinner

8 – 9 pm – optional meditation

*schedule is subject to change
