Breathing, Relaxation, Meditation
starts Sunday 20 september 2020 at 20:00
In this one-hour practice taught in English, we tune into our subtle pranic energy system with conscious full yogic breathing for 10-15 minutes, then practice a deep guided relaxation with yoga nidra to prepare ourselves for meditation and enter into a state of mental stillness and clarity.
You will need a mat to lie on and a cushion to sit on. There will be no hatha yoga asana practices.

Style: Breathe, Relax, Meditate
This course involves yogic practices to relax the whole body and elevate the mind. There are no physical exercises or yogic postures other than lying and sitting. First, we relax the whole body (muscles, organs, bones, senses) and the mind (mental tensions) through the practice of Nidra Yoga. We then practice yogic breathing (pranayama) to tune into, purify and calm the more subtle energy body, then chant to elevate our vibratory level. Finally, we come to a state ready for meditation where we can dissolve into a feeling of eternity and infinity. Go to the Breathe, Relax, Meditate page.
