Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is the art and practice of “Yogic Sleep” – a state of deep relaxation. Ideal for those who find it difficult to meditate alone. Yoga Nidra allows you to experience a meditative state without having formally “meditated”.

In this practice you are guided through a step-by-step process that allows your mind and body to move into an ever-more relaxed state, from which you can access your inner awareness. The brain switches from beta to alpha waves, signalling the transition from activity to meditation.

I trained in the iRest Yoga Nidra protocol, created by Richard Miller, PhD, a clinical psychologist, author, researcher, yogic scholar and founder of the Integrative Restoration Institute (IRI).

Keen to try Yoga Nidra?

I teach a “pop-up” Yoga Nidra class from time-to-time at Merchant City Yoga in Glasgow (approximately once a month). Keep an eye on my social media pages and the studio website for details.

Suitable for all levels. No previous yoga or mediation experience required.

“In the end, we realise how simple life is when we accept this moment, just as it is, without pretending to be other than who we are.”
