Workshop: Yoga nidra for deep relaxation

How often do you truly give yourself time to relax and replenish? These days, we often rush through life with never-ending to-do lists and rarely take a moment to replenish our spent energy.

This Yoga Nidra workshop (now longer than before!) will begin with gentle yoga postures to warm up and tune in to our bodies. We will visit each area with gentle movement, preparing to arrive at a place of stillness where we will be better prepared to deeply relax. We will visit some supported restorative poses to allow the body to release back into its true alignment. We will then finish with a guided yoga nidra practice.

Yoga nidra is a powerful technique derived from the tantras that is used to bring about peace and calm to a tired body and a busy mind. The practice itself is a journey through various stages: rotation of awareness, visualisations, and mindfulness of the body and breath. Modern-day mindfulness practice traces its roots back to these teachings. Students with all levels of experience are welcome, including beginners, practitioners with injuries or pre & post-natal students. There will be refreshments on offer at the studio for you to enjoy after the session.

This workshop is perfect for settling into the winter season, letting go of this year,  and making space for the new year…..

Monday 10th, free.
Regular meditation group

Meditation by the Bay invites you to join us at the Old Cottage for a seasonal meditation and a glass of mulled wine.
We host a regular group meditation on the second Monday of the month for those who have meditated before (no matter how long!). Although meditation is an individual inner experience, meditating in groups provides a sense of community and connectedness. Contact us if you would like to join us or would like to know more. This group is *free*.

Tuesday 18th (every third Tuesday), £5
Toning Circle – 6-7pm
This session will be before Mantra, so please feel free to come to either or both sessions! Experience the power of vocal toning with intention for healing. We will tone first for the group, raising our energy and altering our consciousness. Then we will tone for Earth Healing. Finally, people who would like to will be invited to lie or sit in the centre of the circle to receive from the group.

Tuesday 18th (every third Tuesday), £5
Sacred mantra chanting – 7pm-8pm
Whilst mantra can be used for facilitating a meditative state, many people also find them to be uplifting and joyful especially when sung. Join Naomy every second Tuesday for a beautiful community class.

Contact Naomy regarding either evening session on 01227741802 or
