Experience the deeply restorative, calming and transformative effects of Yoga Nidra, a technique for deep relaxation, wholeness and balance. The session will begin with passive, opening restorative yoga poses before you are guided through a deep relaxation practice which allows the physical body to rest and recuperate from the daily stresses of life - cultivating a sense of calm, clarity and peace of mind.
What to bring: It is recommended that you wear clothing that you can comfortably move in and bring along a blanket plus a cushion, pillow or block. Limited Yoga mats are available at the Centre but please do bring along your own if you have one.
Session: Wednesday 24 January, 13 March and 17 April, 8 May & 12 June 2024 6pm-7pm
Tutor: Julie Hand
With a background in fitness and dance and a Reiki II practitioner, Julie’s focus is on the therapeutic aspects of conscious movement and breath to promote health, well-being and peace of mind.
Qualified with the British Wheel of Yoga and teaching since 2003, she has since spent time studying the principles of Tibetan Yoga and works to incorporate the philosophy of Kum Nye Tibetan Healing Movement into the practice. Julie has focussed her yoga sharing on breath awareness and using it as a tool for improved well-being, relaxation and calming of the nervous system – often working on a one-to-one basis with people suffering with stress and its associated symptoms.
Julie’s teaching style is breath-led, incorporating flow and rhythm, to impart a sense of ‘being’ in one’s body. Finding her way to the Parkinson’s Dance Science Model in 2016 was a complete joy.
