Catherine also teaches Yoga Nidra on a 1:1 basis – this can be very helpful if you are having problems sleeping or relaxing and is extremely restorative at times of emotional or psychological stress.
Yoga nidra means “yogic sleep”. It is a state of conscious deep sleep. In meditation, you remain in the waking state of consciousness, and gently focus the mind, while allowing thought patterns, emotions, sensations, and images to arise and go on. However, in yoga nidra, you leave the waking state, go past the dreaming state, and move into deep sleep, whilst remaining awake and conscious. Yoga nidra brings you to a supreme state of relaxation, which can be very helpful at times of intense stress, or when you are having difficulty sleeping.
Benefits of Yoga Nidra
During this deep state of relaxation, blood pressure is normalised, the immune system is strengthened and the brain relaxes and cooperates better. All the organs and senses of the body are rested in a way that sleep seldom provides. Thus the senses are sharpened and you come round feeling refreshed and invigorated. The more familiar you become with yoga nidra, the easier it is to glide into the relaxed state. And as you become more practiced at the techniques, you will be able to return to this state instantly – in the middle of the activities of your day, or at night, when you may wish to move deeper and allow yourself to drift into sleep itself.
What to expect
Yoga nidra is practiced on the floor, in a warm, comfortable and safe environment, free from distractions. Each session takes approximately 1 hour, as Catherine talks you gently through a series of relaxation techniques that help bring you into the state of yoga nidra. At the end of the session, you will wake refreshed and revitalised, ready to face the rest of your day.
Stress in the workplace is the main reason for employees taking time away from the office, costing companies millions each year.
Cultivating a good team environment and investing in the well-being of your employees shows that you care about your staff. Allowing your staff to feel part of the team makes them more efficient and determined to do well for your company.
