full moon yoga nidra
& SOUND HEALING JOURNEY
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Yoga Nidra is a form of guided meditation also known as “yogic sleep” or “effortless relaxation”. It is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the students become increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions. Yoga Nidra is not just the practice of relaxing, but of reforming from within, where students practice the process of releasing old habits, beliefs, and tendencies.
Sound therapy using Tibetan singing bowls is an ancient form of deep relaxation and muscle regeneration to relieve pain in the joints and muscles. The sound of Tibetan singing bowls also allows deep relaxation of both sides of the brain. It stimulates stress relief on all levels and the elimination of toxins from the body. After sound therapy emotions are calm and the mind clearer.
During this workshop, students will experience the combination of Yoga Nidra with the healing sounds of Tibetan singing bowls . The class will begin with a focus on a personal ‘sankulpa’ or resolve (intention). During the Nidra session students will have the opportunity to become aware of old habits, beliefs and tendencies. The guided meditation in Nidra will focus on visualizations to help students feel more connected with their sankulpa. Whilst students are resting in relaxation, Tibetan bowls will be placed around and on areas of the body including the lower, upper back, stomach and chest. The vibrational sounds on the body are used to heal mental and energetic blocks held in the body. When the specific tones are used on areas of the body it helps to stabilize blood pressure, renews the functioning of the adrenal gland as well as opens and stabilizes the meridians.
