About the New Moon Yoga Nidra Workshop

Nighttime is a time to turn towards stillness. In this stillness, we are closest to our truest essence. Add to this the powerful New Moon, which is void of light in the night sky. Out of this void and emptiness, all is birthed into Life. This is a great time to plant seeds of intentions at the start of a new lunar cycle.

We begin the session with a ritual to cleanse our space and honour the directions and elements. This practice is seen in many spiritual traditions.

We then move into a space of meditative self-inquiry (related to the New Moon in Pisces and regarding Sleep), revealing our seeds of intentions for the month.

As we rest in a Restorative yoga pose, we are guided into Yoga Nidra. I share practices passed down through my teachers (from the Sri Vidya lineage – Himalayan Institute). We offer our intentions to the Goddess.

Yoga Nidra (commonly referred to as yogic sleep) is an ancient Tantric Yoga practice that helps reduce stress, anxiety, and insomnia. In ancient texts, Yoga Nidra is a Goddess.

In this session, I guide you to a place of relaxation where the thoughts begin to slow down. You’ll move into a deep state of stillness (moving through the koshas), where you are unconditionally supported and awaken a connection to the infinite or Source.

By attending this 2 hour workshop you will:

There are 4 states of consciousness: waking, dreaming, deep sleep, and Turiya (which pervades the others). Yoga Nidra moves us to a place of awareness. The more we practice this, the greater our awareness in other states, including dreaming. We can remain aware in our dreams and also be able to recall our dreams. In this workshop:

✔︎ Explore the 4 states of consciousness and how to bring awareness to the transitions

✔︎ Implement rituals for the Dream World (incl. pre-sleep rituals, journaling, dream talisman)

✔︎ Ask a question before sleeping and see how the dream world creatively reveals the answer

✔︎ Enjoy a Yoga Nidra practice to increase awareness in the dream state

✔︎ Amplify your dreams with a tea (reishi and mugwort)
