Monthy Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is an invitation to come as you are, lie down and allow your body to fully let go into a deep state of relaxation as my voice takes you on a guided meditation / exploration around your physical body.

Session starts with roughly 15 min of Yin Yoga then 45 min Nidra, where you set yourself up with pillows, blankets, lavender eye pillows and bolsters; The idea is that once your body is absolutely comfortable, it can also remain absolutely still and centre.

Nidra translates as Yogic Sleep, or sleep that is yoga, though in fact it's not a sleep but an awakening. It induces complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation.  Swami Rama describes it this way; ' Yoga Nidra is a state of conscious sleep in which one can record what is going on. There is a fine distinction between Yoga Nidra and Samadhi. In Yoga Nidra one can record those experiences which he cannot receive in the conscious state. When one cannot register something properly in the waking state,they can go into Yoga Nidra to register it..'

If you've never tried a Nidra class, you'd be pleasantly surprised at how it helps you feel deeply rejuvenated, as well as with a calm and clear state of mind!

Happy to share that I’ll be involved with the wonderful warm and fuzzy creative community that is Camberwell Arts Festival on the 1st of December. Will be their Christmas markets across three different venues, so lots to choose from!

Especially if you’re tired of the faceless, nameless consumer culture that surrounds the Festive season..Chance to get to know the source of your products, hear their story and how they’re actually made.

I shall have my brand new range of lavender eye pillows, yoga journals and mat bags, all made with ethically sourced, sustainable textiles, including bamboo silk (sexy!) and organic cotton..lusssh!

These are also available on my new website shop; https://www.purplepalmwellness.com/

Here’s a little from the organisers themselves:

Looking for unique and thoughtful gifts this Christmas? Camberwell Arts are offering more creativity, style and local talent than ever before on Saturday 1 December between 12noon and 5pm. Visit over 40 stalls in three market locations hung like festive baubles strung delicately across central Camberwell:
The Tiger Pub, Butterfly Walk Arcade and The Joiners pub are all within 50m from one to the other.

YIN YANG YOGA + KERALAN CHRISTMAS MEAL

YIN YANG YOGA + KERALAN CHRISTMAS MEAL

Back by popular demand!

Will be holding a 90 min Yin Yang Yoga Class followed by a 4 course Vegetarian Keralan Supper, which is sure to do the job of getting you out of your head and well and truly into your body..

Yin Yang Yoga aims to cultivate a balanced holistic practice. ‘Yin’ postures are long held and seated, targeting the connective tissue, joints and ligaments.  This side of the practice helps with joint mobility & is also deeply meditative, engaging with the meridian lines & releasing ‘stuck’ energy.  The ‘Yang’ postures & practice are more dynamic and engage the muscles, developing strength & flexibility.  Yin Yang Yoga encourages engaging with  foundation and alignment through standing postures & flowing movement. 

Chef Vizzy Sagar who's originally from Kerala, a self taught culinary artist, big on the London Markets food scene, specialises in authentic, mouth watering dishes from his homeland.  He really is second to none with quality, freshness and taste of course… Plus there’s the added bonus of his wicked sense of humour!

Not to be missed! 

Class + Supper £35
