Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra translates as ‘yogic sleep’. However, rather than actually sleeping, in yoga nidra you will lie down and be guided by the teacher into a state of profound physical and mental relaxation, somewhere between wakefulness and sleep. As well as allowing our bodies and minds some much needed rest, this also allows the sub-conscious mind to be at its most receptive, so that the practice can help to sow seeds of positive intention as well as help let go of negative habits. Yoga Nidra has been shown to help relieve stress, tension and anxiety, and has become a valuable therapeutic tool in many contexts.

At The Secret Space the benefits of Yoga Nidra can be experienced in our weekly Relax, Recharge and Restore sessions on a Monday afternoon with Becky, which is followed by a free session of chanting, providing opportunity to experience the healing vibes of the Mrityunjaya mantra. You are more than welcome to sit in and listen if you do not wish to chant. We also hold a monthly Relax and Revitalise class monthly on a Saturday afternoon with Cathy.
