Yoga Nidra Day with Gillian Shippey

Sun 2nd June
10.00am-4.00pm
Studio
Teacher(s): Gillian Shippey
Ability Level: Open to All

Immerse yourself into the practice of Yoga Nidra.

We will be practicing various Yoga Nidras, as well as a neuroplastic posture sequence which could be described as a ‘moving nidra’ and is deeply soothing for the nervous system and accessible to everyone.

We will explore various aspects of Yoga Nidra including Sankalpa (heartfelt desire), the science behind Nidra (why and how it works) as well as deepening our understanding of Yoga Nidra from a philosophical perspective.

This day will be deeply restorative, therapeutic and soothing. It is a useful workshop for anyone interested in Nidra, as well as teachers wishing to deepen their knowledge.
