Yoga Nidra is practiced in Savasana. A guided meditation, it has the power to re set the body and mind by relaxing it on a deep unconscious level - bringing you home to your true self. All you need do is relax, make sure you are comfortable and listen to my voice as I guide you around your body and take you on a journey. You will be brought around safely at the end of each session going home feeling clear headed and relaxed. You may notice improved sleep, feeling less stress in everyday life and a more rested body.
If you would like a taylored yoga nidra recorded I offer private one to one sessions where we chat and I garner the information I need to record a personalised yoga nidra for you to take away and practice regularly at home. This can either be done at my flat in Stokey or I can come to you.
Longer held postures using props to support the body. Enabling the body and mind to deeply relax, activating the parasympathetic nervous system. Good for stressed minds and tired or injured bodies, or as a way to unwind and calm a busy mind. Can be particularly useful if you live in a busy, fast paced city like London, have a very stressful job, or to compliment other more physically demanding exercise regimes.
A private class is useful for alignment tips, more detailed one to one work on specific postures or if you have an injury and want to modify your practice around it. The option is also available to get a small group of your friends, neighbours or colleagues together and Catrin can come around and teach the group.
Message her for prices and available times. Catrin has a moped so can come to you, she can also teach a private at her flat in Stoke Newington.

Yin Yoga Workshop on Friday 5th October at Hackney Tennis Club, 3, Queen Elizabeths Walk, Stoke Newington, N16OBF. For details of the Workshop and to book click below
In this workshop we will practice floor based postures, with the use of props to help support the body. This opens up fascia, a layer of connective tissue covering the entire body. Yin is a quiet, reflective practice and can help us to slow down and look inwards, focusing on the meditative power of the breath, practicing stillness and observing what comes up when we let go. Expect to leave feeling like you have stretched the body passively, often going deeper as we hold the postures for longer but also with a sense of inner calm, enabling you to feel less stressed and experience better sleep. The session will end with Yoga Nidra - a guided meditation practiced in Savasana (lying down). The venue looks out over Clissold Park and the space will be candlelit. There will be bolsters, blankets, blocks and belts provided, please bring a yoga mat if you ahve one. If not e mail me as I have a few available to borrow.
