How is Yoga Nidra different than meditation?
Traditional meditation practices generally are engaged sitting, with the purpose of increasing perception and intuition and being able to direct our attention and awareness. Yoga Nidra is practiced lying down, and is based on entry into altered states where the body is consciously asleep but awareness is present
What is Yoga Nidra for?
Yoga Nidra helps diminish symptoms of anxiety by teaching mental calmness and cultivating a state of deep physical and emotional relaxation. In addition, the ancient practice releases pent-up emotions and stress to detoxify the brain.
Ali Flower (Yoga Teacher and Owner of Namaste Yoga) will be guiding us through this blissful practice).
Why is homeostasis important?
Homeostasis maintains optimal conditions for enzyme action throughout the body, as well as all cell functions. It is the maintenance of a constant internal environment despite changes in internal and external conditions. In the human body, these include the control of: blood glucose concentration. Homeostasis, from the Greek words for "same" and "steady," refers to any process that living things use to actively maintain fairly stable conditions necessary for survival.
How does sound affect our body?
The sound is undoubtedly one of the most powerful media, as it can take the human spirit in different states of consciousness. Besides their traditional use for meditation, bowls are used for deep relaxation and muscle regeneration, to relieve pain in the joints, muscles and shoulders, to ease pain related to sciatica, the digestive system, headaches and migraine or spine injuries, to improve circulation, release tensions or blockages, to open the energy flow, eliminate the toxins from the body. When we relax with the sounds of bowls our concentration improves and our emotional tensions and blockages are eased. The sound with its vibrations can ease mental or emotional pain (low self-esteem, worries, fear, anger, anxiety, depression, insomnia). singing bowls and their unique tones are used to stabilise blood pressure, to ease asthma related issues, to renew the functioning of the adrenal gland, to open and stabilise the meridians and to improve the synaptic responses in our brain.
Samantha May will be sharing her Crystal Singing Bowls tuned to 432hz as well as an array of other instruments AND her voice to support this very special gathering.
Cacao is a sacred plant medicine from the Amazon and is an ancient teacher and healer of the HEART. Cacao has been used by indigenous tribes for over 5000 years and is a superfood - packed with antioxidants, magnesium, iron, vitamins and minerals. Her spirit gently reminds us to move through life with love while allowing us to access higher states of consciousness.
