Yoga Nidra Network Autumn Newsletter

When you know the most joyful day
and the most terrible night
as one moment, 
then awareness is alone
with its Lord.

(Lalleshwari, translated by Coleman Barks) 


HARI OM 
Dear Souls

Thankful Autumnal Greetings to you from the heart of London. After the sunny travelling of the summer and the highlight of the end of summer with five yoga nidras every day in our Santosa Yoga Camp near Glastonbury, I am so pleased to be here with the Total Yoga Nidra Facilitator and Teacher training course in the magnificent shrine room of the Kagyu Samye Dzong Tibetan Buddhist centre - our base in London for these extraordinarily empowering courses. It is a treat to share this precious practice and to see how creative and confident everyone become to share yoga nidra from the heart’s wisdom of their own practice and experience. 

We love to share Total Yoga Nidra, and are thankful that so many people are keen to appreciated the practice -  already this Autumn, the Total Yoga Nidra Foundation courses have been sold out in Oslo, in Manchester, and London, and also at our home studio in Stroud. At each venue I am humbled to meet so many wonderful practitioners and enthusiasts of Yoga Nidra.

By popular request we are offering two NEW YEAR RETREATS in Stroud. The first is held over New Year’s Eve, giving gratitude for the year that’s past and moving into the year ahead with grace and trust and Total Yoga Nidra and many more delicious practices – Total Yoga Nidra New Year Retreat: Grace and Gratitude. The second retreat is on the 2-3 January and empires you to move into 2017 with a positive techniques to search for happiness, and enjoy the search – Never-ending Search for Happiness Retreat.

At the tail end of 2016 we are delighted be travelling back to Athens by again popular request, to offer an EXPANDED Total Yoga Nidra Foundation at NYSYS in Central Athens, this time with additional variants on the practices to nourish and support the practice of those who have already done the Total Yoga Nidra as well as those who are coming for the first time.

We are truly excited to be collaborating with Lucy Crisfield, our Sanskrit Sounds and Vedic Chant Teacher for offer two unique new workshops that explore the relationship between Total Yoga Nidra and the sacred sounds of Sanskrit. A marriage made in heaven! We hope you will join us for the nuptials… 15 November and 15 December

Our next Total Yoga Nidra Teacher and Facilitator training will take place in Copenhagen, part one 4 - 6 November 2016 and part two 6 - 8 January 2017, and there are some beautiful Intensive Teacher and Facilitator trainings to look forward to 2017: 
in February in the wild beauty of the Duddon Valley in Cumbria, in the English Lake District and then in Greece in May, back on the fabulous Aran Island of Inis Mor of the stunning coast of Counties Galway and Clare in the West of Ireland in midsummer and off grid in Gravito in Portugal in August. Each of these opportunities offers a chance to dive deep into the practice and sharing of Total Yoga Nidra and we invite you to join us.

And a special treat in London in December, a chance to soak up the Nidra Bhava and hear the exquisite music and voices of Sivani Mata and Russell Oliver Stone in our Mystic Poetry, Bhakti Song and Total Yoga Nidra Evening

Trusting the practice of Yoga Nidra is serving you well… 
    
With great respect and love I send warm wishes for your well being

THANK YOU
SHANTI
