"The soothing, nourishing practices of Nidra really
is 'Powerful Rest'. It has been an invaluable method
to aid my own wellbeing and energy
and for maintaining my overall health, resilience and improved energy levels, especially for pain management due to a longstanding chronic illness. Yoga nidra, coupled with meditation practice and restorative healing, helps to sustain my inner peace, resilience, and to instil more awareness and clarity of mind.
The first time I was introduced to Yoga Nidra I was 10 years old and it left a lasting impression. Many years later I started practicing for my own healing benefit and I have made a firm commitment to share these time-tested practices with others, especially women who often extend themselves too much or struggle with chronic illness. My aim is to help ease the stress consciousness, provide more tools that help instil habits of more daily ease and a true sense of holistic wellbeing for women of all ages. I believe this powerful combination of methods deeply soothe weary bodies and minds, create a life of more balance and inner harmony and reminds women of their own intuitive wisdom and heart of compassion for self and others."
