hello from Viveka Gardens Retreat Place in Devon
Yoga nidra aided me immensely in visioning a retreat place, vivekagardens.com. Since completing the yoga nidra facilitator course with YNN in June 2016 on the enchanting isle of Inishmore, site of Celtic faith at mid-summer, I've been sharing the practice with students in classes and workshops. I now bring an emphasis in line with my Christian faith, with the practise as a form of prayer where the Holy Spirit can be better heard. Relaxation of the nervous system, deep rest, dropping of conditioning 'shoulds', to find truth.
You can join me live online for nidra, and here at VG in real life with all Covid measures in place. Check out the Viveka Gardens website. If you'd like to co-create your bespoke nidra, perhaps with coaching, to get through change or set some goals, be in touch: 07914 843618. I have an advanced diploma in coaching and offer life & spiritual coaching. I've been teaching traditional hatha yoga since 2001, and Yin since 2019.
Thank you for the extraordinary experience today Fiona, it was so profound and enlightening. The feeling of being completely safe and surrounded by such a lovely feeling of warmth and peace. It is something I would definitely want to repeat on a regular basis. You have a very special gift. LG
I have experienced Yoga Nidra before but nothing compared to this. Fiona is a wonderful teacher and her slow soothing tone helped to enable me to gain deep relaxation and empowering answers to some long term deep rooted questions. I will recommend Fiona’s workshops to all I know – this has been a life changing experience. GL
I had been having a difficult time in the week leading up to the workshop and it turned out I couldn’t have been headed anywhere more perfect. Fiona instantly makes you feel like you have stepped into the home of a dear friend. I think without realising it I had gone to the yoga nidra workshop to get confirmation and clarity that I was on the right path. And I most certainly came away feeling a new sense of calm and purpose as I approach the next stage of my life. I actually felt surprisingly emotional afterwards, but in a lovely way, full of humility and gratitude. I would highly recommend attending one of Fiona’s wonderful workshops whether you are looking to deepen your practice or just need to take some time out from modern life! JP, Tavistock
If you are a yogi and have never experienced yoga nidra you owe it to yourself to try Fiona's yoga nidra workshop. I am a longtime yogi and teacher and I had no previous experience of yoga nidra. Fiona's workshop was amazing! Her voice and pace were soothing , the atmosphere was relaxing, sending me off into state of deep relaxation. The workshop felt like a decadent treat for the soul! Naomi
Deeply nourishing workshop thank you. Fiona holds a lovely safe space and executes it impeccably and in a very personable way. Gavin Frank
Fiona led a wonderful Yoga Nidra workshop which was very nourishing and calming to mind body and soul. She explained the origins and theory behind this powerful practice as well as guiding us through gentle yoga exercises and three yoga nidra meditations. These allowed me to relaxed far more than I had for quite a while and I found the workshop really inspiring. I look forward to practising further yoga nidra and trying some of Fiona’s other workshops. Claire
