Full Moon Restorative Yin + Yoga Nidra w Sound Healing

Following on from the magic women’s Yin + sound healing experience last month, Simone, Leaf and Beth are coming together to offer this once again to many who missed out and many who have asked for it again – and this time we are offering even more, to both men and women!

The experience in brief:

A candlelit restorative Yin Yoga journey makes way for a sacred moon Yoga Nidra practice led by Simone. Calling on the healing water and beauty of the full moon, you will be guided on a special journey that nourishes and shines the light on any darkness.

Healing mantra and soundscapes by Leaf and Beth will be magically weaved throughout. This not only includes the blissful tranquil sounds of Leaf and Beth harmonising mantra (sacred Sanskrit) but also the integration of a range of instruments including crystal and tiebeten singing bowls, Shaman drum, shaker, guitar, chime bells and more – a true sound bath to help every cell vibrate back into harmony.

The intention of this powerful combination is to ignite and shine brightly your flame of your awareness, penetrating more light, joy and purity into your body, mind, and heart.

Only 1.5 hours long, but there’s a lot on offer to share within community on this evening!

The experience in more detail:

This experience is timed to fall just after our full moon, calling on its healing waters and beauty to let go and manfiest the new.

It will be lit by candlelight and fairy lights, as night falls upon us.

The practice will end with an invitation to free write or journal to let go what you don’t need with the passing of the full moon to allow the new manifestation of your desires in. Writing it down can help to cement your desires. You are welcome to bring your own favourite journal or use the supplied moon prompt sheets. Alternatively you can use this time to bask further in the soundscapes.

Organic teas, filtered water, and a seasonal fruit will be on offer to inspire your manifesting.

All equipment is provided (mat, blanket, bolsters/cushions), however please bring an additional cushion should you wish to offer any part of your body, such as head or low back/knees, extra support as you lie down in Savasana for the Yoga Nidra experience.  An eye mask, crystal, or any other sacred object is also most welcome.

About Restorative Yin Yoga – w Simone:

Supported by props, the Yin Yoga will be ultra restorative, allowing the big muscles within the body to soften so we can delve deeper into the deeper tissues of the body, gently stressing them to allow the free flow of Qi or lifeforce through the physical temple, priming it for Yoga Nidra and sound healing. This is a nourishing practice that is suitable for all stages and ages. No experience is necessary.

About Yoga Nidra – w Simone:

Following Yin Yoga you get to experience a Yoga Nidra practice, the most gentle of yoga practices where you simply lie on your back in corpse pose (called Savasana in Sanskrit).

In this particular practice of Yoga Nidra, you will be invited on a sacred journey to tap into the healing waters and beauty of the full moon, as we rotate consciousness to infuse this light into your body, heart and spirit.

Yoga Nidra is also known as Yogic Sleep. It not only helps you to recognise your more subtle energies, but also promotes deep rest and wellbeing.

Yoga Nidra is also reported to assist you in accessing your calm state more readily, improve your sleep, and sharpen your mind and creativity long after practicing it – 20 minutes of Yoga Nidra, which is said to equate to two hours of sleep. A practice that can be very replenishing for many of us in the West who often are sleep deprived and affected by chronic inflammation.

About sound healing – w Beth & Leaf

Open and receptive in and between your Yin poses, is the opportunity for sound to penetrate deep into your tissues, helping to further nourish your entire being and vibrate every cell back to harmony. 

You will be treated to sound scapes from Leaf and Beth, both local talented and soulful musicians. Their angelic voices will sing ancient and healing Sanskrit mantra and chants from the Bhakti Yoga lineage with their own harmonic twist, supported by traditional instruments such as crystal and tiebeten singing bowls, Shaman drum, shaker, guitar, chime bells and more.
