Full moon Yoga Nidra

Sundays 5 July | 2 August | 6 September | 4 October | 1 November | 29 November
3pm - 5pm

Experience deep-set and self care.
When we are near to a full moon we often have disturbed sleep. Yoga Nidra helps to calm the mind and emotions, promotes healthy restful sleep and calms anxiety, it is a great remedy to a stressful life. Yoga Nidra takes you into a liminal space where the body and mind deeply rest and restore themselves.
This practice is done entirely lying down, in a very comfortable place, and is suitable for anyone.
We will enjoy a total of three nidra practice during the two hours, as well as some very gentle nurturing movement, tasty snacks and refreshments. 

Sliding scale payment £9 - £18.Please pay what you can afford.

Saturday 7th November

Venue: Lotus Loft, Exeter

Morning session: 10am - 1pm
Yoga and Ayurveda for you.

Yoga practice to include Asana, Pranayama and Meditation.
Yoga is part of the Ayurvedic system, therefore it needs to be adapted for us all individually, once size does not fit all. 
We will begin with a brief discussion on how everyone is feeling, consideration of the general group and individual energy. Practices offered will then be tailored to respond to the individual and group needs. Therefore some practices will be experienced as a group and I will also give you some individual suggestions. Pranayama will form at least one third of the session (one hour).
