Do you struggle to unwind, recuperate or sleep?
Or perhaps you’re curious about what lies beyond the mind, and about yogic consciousness (turiya) that enhances daily life and is found beyond waking, dreaming and sleep?
Yoga nidra is an effortless, guided practice that releases tension on all levels and nourishes wellbeing. It’s accessible to all.
As part of this process, yoga nidra gently invites you to explore and befriend your layers (koshas) and all the parts of you unconditionally. This offers freedom from the conceptual thinking mind, its imprints and limiting patterns. What’s revealed is our essence; a deeper, unshakeable source of peaceful being that infuses daily life. Sound sleep and rejuvenation are welcome by-products of the practice.
Over time, you rediscover the ability to rest, be and meet life’s varied circumstances with greater calm, clarity and contentment.
“Thanks so much Carol – this practice was sumptuous! I thought I was fairly awake throughout but when I started to stir at the end I felt like I’d been asleep for days. Wonderful! Thank you” – Vicki
Carol has trained in traditional (Satyananda/Bihar) and contemporary (iRest) methods of yoga nidra and has experienced other schools’ approaches. The iRest Institute continues to track published research into the efficacy of yoga nidra for various conditions, including chronic pain, sleep problems, depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
”Carol’s clear and compassionate guidance allowed me to feel safe and to relax into this transformational practice. It’s been such a supportive practice for my own general well-being in these challenging times. The course is also helping me to gradually come to greater loving acceptance of myself as I am” – A

Why yoga nidra?
It can be challenging to find deep rest, replenishment and contentment. Yoga nidra, sometimes called ‘yogic sleep’ or NSDR (non-sleep deep rest), makes the transition to self-awareness, acceptance and wellbeing possible. Please see more below.
