Tranquility: Deep Relaxation & Yoga Nidra Course

Thursdays 16 May – 6 June | Bicton

Tranquility is our true nature. Being able to fully relax and return to inner calm is essential for your well-being, happiness, success and self-realisation – especially in a busy, complex life.

Join my four-week course to learn the lying practice of Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) and experience the profound relaxation and healing benefits. Deeply restore balance to your body, nervous system and mind. Learn how to relieve stress, ease anxiety and overcome insomnia, and be calm and centred.

There’s no previous yoga or meditation experience required – we start from scratch, and everyone is welcome. 

Deep relaxation is the direct opposite of stress. It is an experience far beyond just sitting down with a coffee, having a beer, watching television or lazing at the beach. These involve sensory diversions. For absolute relaxation to take place, there must be a genuine slowing-down of the nervous system and a ‘turning inwards’ away from outer distractions and experiences.  

“Nothing has quietened my mind like your Deep Relaxation Course.
It soothed my anxiety in a way that lasted through the week.
I loved it – thank you!” ~ Tess 

The Benefits of Deep Relaxation

When you are genuinely relaxed, there are many palpable benefits – many of them proven by medical science:

  • better able to deal with stress and more effective at work;
  • more patience and tolerance for others;
  • greater access to wisdom, creativity and the pure joy of your heart;
  • enjoy a better quality of sleep;
  • improved functioning and healing of the entire body; and
  • an experience of tranquility and deeper state of consciousness, leading to self-realisation.

“Practising being still and allowing external stimuli to diminish was great.
I learned how to relax and to give myself permission to deeply relax.”
~ Anthony

What to expect in Yoga Nidra?

Yoga Nidra is the ultimate in relaxation. It is a systematic, guided process of self-awareness that looks like sleeping – but it isn’t the same as sleeping! You remain conscious. It’s like that state just before we drop off to sleep.

I will safely and supportively guide you through different techniques such as: body scanning; visualisations; intention-setting and breath awareness. You’ll learn to sense the different energies of the body, mind, and any emotions, just as they are, witnessing and welcoming, feeling and letting-go. People generally feel very chilled after the practice. Sometimes people can feel awkward or uncomfortable, and if so, you’ll be fully supported.

The effects of Yoga Nidra can be profound. Over time, as you learn to gain control over your relaxation response, Yoga Nidra can shift deeply-entrenched beliefs, patterns of thinking and conditioning held in the subconscious mind. This frees you to tap into your inspiration, wisdom and knowing, and to quickly find answers to the questions and challenges you face in daily life. And to Be just as you are.

“The opportunity to completely relax and let-go for one hour each week – this doesn’t happen often. I learned that I can do it and can continue practising Yoga Nidra for myself.
I liked your style in presenting interesting facts about the practice – so it wasn’t too ‘out there’ and had real’-life, practical applications.” ~ Tara

“Your Deep Relaxation Course was amazing and I looked forward to it every week. I loved how you explained what we were going to do as we went along.
It was a great way for me to learn how to relax and function better in my life as a result.” ~ Jacinta
