Feelings of stress and anxiousness are signals from the body and mind to allow space and time for oneself to explore 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 bring you to a state of inner peace.
