Sweet Dreams: Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra
Centring and grounding breathwork (Pranayama) will begin our time together, followed by Restorative Yoga; gentle, comfy stretches supported by bolsters and cushions that soften and release deeply held tension. The later part of the evening will be a long Yoga Nidra: guided meditative rest known as ‘the meditative heart of yoga’. Claire’s soothing voice will guide you on an inner journey through the breath, body and visualisation, supporting you to soften your heart and drop deeply into peaceful rest.
Some of the potential benefits of Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra:
- release anxiety and restlessness
- support sleep
- balance the nervous system
- ease stress
- calm your mind
- settle emotions
- feel safe, held and supported
- and replenish depleted energy
You will need to bring props for both online and in-person events:
Yoga mat or large towel
a yoga bolster or large bath towel and a pillow
an eye covering (eye pillow or light scarf

Lea Miklody: Born in Hungary, based in West Cork, Ireland, the music of Lea M. is rooted in improvisation and inspired by nature. With cello, voice, and loop station she creates experimental and ambient instrumental soundscapes that bring listeners to a quiet space of inner journey and connection. Layer upon layer of bowed, plucked, and even strummed cello loops weave seamlessly, ebbing and flowing from near-symphonic force to delicate stillness, only to be further enhanced by Lea's evocative singing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNLP7-8BJoQ
