'Be aware of your breathing.  Notice how this takes attention away from your thinking and creates space’
Eckhart Tolle

When stressed the nervous system triggers the flight and fright reaction. This causes us to breathe short and shallow as if we are permanently hyperventilating.   

Prolonged periods of stress and incorrect  breathing leads to anxiety, confusion and many other debilitating health conditions. 

Short periods of Silence

The breathing practices, pre breathing technique asanas – postures to deepen the breath

& Yoga Nidra - relaxation taught on this weekend will correct, reset and restore the breathing patterns resulting in greatly reducing stress and anxiety.

Yoga Nidra:  the complete relaxation technique for sustaining life balance

Feelings of stress and anxiousness are signals from the body and mind to allow space for inner quietude and peace. 

Yoga Nidra is a simple deep relaxation practice where body, breath, mind and emotions are systematically guided into a deeply relaxed state. 
It is this relaxed state where profound positive change can happen.
Through Yoga Nidra, you will experience the body and mind’s ability to consciously relax with the power of awareness and intention – Sankalpa, 

Immerse yourself in the peaceful environment of ashram and nature and be inspired to use the support of yoga to quickly restore a sense of inner harmony.
