Yoga Nidra with Sound

Friday 15th March 2024 - Ullesthorpe Village Hall (FULLY BOOKED)

AND Friday 22nd March 2024 - Ullesthorpe Village Hall

Time - 7.30pm - 9pm

You are warmly invited to join Sara for an evening of deeply restorative and nourishing rest and sound.

These monthly sessions are intended to offer you a space to 'simply be; providing a safe and held space for you to set aside all that you have been 'doing' so you can surrender to the sacred act of stillness and the many benefits this brings to your body, mind and soul'.

The session includes nourishing Yoga Nidra, soothing sacred sounds and mantra, poetry to inspire and space for self inquiry through journalling.

Sacred Rest: Throughout the session Sara will weave in the beautiful healing sounds of many sacred instruments (a beautiful journey of sound as created by Anne Malone, Oasis of Sound). We begin our journey into deep relaxation with the wonderful deep vibrations of the singing bowl as it is placed & played on the body, followed by the Chinese wind gong, drum, rainstick, & chimes. The vibrations of sound will deepen your meditative experience, helping you to release blockages and accumulated stress, quieten the mind and revive your heart and soul.

Yoga Nidra is such a healing balm for these times. Through the practice of Yoga Nidra you'll hover in the liminal space between waking and dreaming. The beauty of the practice is that you not only get to rest deeply but you can also receive great clarity and connection to your inner knowing.

You will feel all your systems settle as you pause and experience this deep healing time to be still. It will help you:

- release anxiety/ stress & overwhelm

- receive complete physical restoration

- feel a deep sense of inner peace

- feel safe, held and supported

This event is suitable for all. No experience necessary.

Cost: £20 per person including tasty nibbles to end the session. Spaces are limited

Yoga Nidra with Gong Bath - Coming soon

Date TBC - Ullesthorpe Village Hall

Time - 7.30pm - 9.15pm

You are warmly invited to join Sara Johnson (Connect to Calm) and special guest, Jackie Searle of Soul Sister Yoga, Gong & Holistic Therapies for a beautiful evening of Yoga Nidra & the magical vibrations of the Gongs.

Sound healing is an ancient art used for thousands of years for calming and tuning the mind while rebalancing the body by releasing tension and subtle energetic blockages. Gong Baths are deeply calming and stilling for the mind providing a gateway for meditation and as a wonderful accompaniment to Yoga Nidra - the yoga of sleep.

What to expect:

Lie down, nestled in amongst all your cosy warm blankets and pillows and receive the beautiful healing sounds of the Gongs and other sacred instruments along with a soothing restful Yoga Nidra, allowing you to rest deeply, receive great clarity and tap into your inner knowing.

Gong Bath

The Gong is the most amazing tool to help switch off chatter, calm the mind and help you achieve a much deeper state of meditation than you might be otherwise be able to access. The magical vibrations of the Gongs and other sound instruments harmonise the body cells, recalibrating the vibration of the body and balancing the nervous system.

Yoga Nidra meditation

Sara will share a nourishing Yoga Nidra to awaken your consciousness to deep rest. Yoga Nidra is a healing balm for these times. There is nothing to do, simply rest in your Nidra nest and receive. It is beautifully simple to do, as there is nothing to do. It will calm even the busiest of minds.

Who is this for?

By slowing down and resting deeply, the session will help you to:

Calm the nervous system, restore the physical body and lighten the mental/ emotional mind as well as connect you to your soul wisdom.

Return to a place of balance

Feel restored and replenished

Release all that is ready to be released, creating space for wonderful new opportunities ready for this new year ahead.

What to bring:

You will be lying down for the whole session, so comfort is key. Please bring as much as you can to ensure your comfort and warmth.

Blankets, pillows, cushions, warm clothes. Please bring more than you think you will need, especially for underneath you!!

Afterwards we will enjoy some treats as we bath in the afterglow of this special Sound/ Nidra experience.

Feedback

Sara's Yoga Nidra sessions are amazing. She has such a soothing voice, it is very easy to quickly relax and find your inner 'home'. Along with all the energy, emotion and empathy Saras clearly invests in every one of her sessions, there is really nowhere else you want to be in that moment. Life can sometimes drag me away from regular Yoga Nidra sessions, and when I return I wonder why I let it.

"I cannot explain how calm and relaxed I feel after Sara's Yoga Nidra sessions. It is incredible! Sara has a very calming voiced and manner and the whole experience is just so lovely. I've been telling everyone to join, especially inn these crazy times we live in. It's like a giant, magic reset button. Thank you Sara."

I felt really relaxed and sleepy afterwards and I got off to sleep much more quickly than I usually would. Today I don't feel so concerned about things that have been troubling me. The Yoga Nidra really did help me. Thank you Sara.

It was like an invitation to fully let myself go and rest as deeply as I wanted -which I did. I felt extremely relaxed afterwards (like a bear after hibernation).

Thank you so much. After a really tough day, it has helped me switch off. I love your Yoga Nidra. A little Oasis of calm in the current climate.

I just wanted to say thank you again. I feel so calm and relaxed. I'm going to listen to it again and go to sleep.

That was so relaxing and grounding. Thank you Sara. This is the highlight of my week.
