What to Expect
A rich programme of restful yoga nidra for neuroplasticity – to lay back, listen and enjoy!
Nirlipta will also share with you brief lecture-type sessions designed to inform and enlighten without being overly technical and overwhelming.
You will encounter the nidra practices gradually, and your learning will be consolidated through gentle repetition, in the experience of both nidra and as meditation - this embodied learning is very restful.
There will be handouts with a fuller description of course content provided.
It’s a day to learn more about your amazing brain with Yoga Nidrā Made Easy co-author & Yoga Nidra Network co-founder, Nirlipta Tuli. You will experience techniques designed help you truly understand the workings of your own mind. This foundation course will enable you to comprehend the function and structure of your own brain.
Imagine a whole day of resting in yoga nidrā, navigating your own mind, all held in our lovely home yoga studio in our small but pleasing garden in Stroud. From beginning to end, the day will be filled with yoga nidrās to help yo to understand and work with your amazing brain; all in the profound nourishing rest of yoga nidrā with Nirlipta.
Who is it intended for? Who is eligible for this course?
Anyone who has a brain is welcome to attend! All are invited to come and rest and learn about the inner workings of your own mind. If you are curious to learn more about the structure and function of your brain through restful horizontal meditations, this is the course for you.
What do I need to bring?
Nothing at all, just your good self, and a journal if you would like to make some notes. We provide: a super comfy yoga nidrā nest for you – specially designed yoga nidrā mats, plus cushions, bolsters, eye pillows/scarves, oodles of covers, multiple bolsters (small and large), cosy sheepskins, and as many lovely blankets as you need! We will also provide a delicious vegetarian lunch, as well as snacks and refreshments.
You will learn by experience primarily, the experience of doing and being immersed in yoga nidrā for neuroplastiticy for the best part of a day. There will be space for informative mini-lectures, discussions, explanations of the practices and of yoga nidrā, and also for querying and making observations.
What will I be able to do after this course?
You will be able to consolidate your learning about neuroplasticity and brain function, and establish a regular system of self-practice, by listening to recordings from the workshop sessions. Over time, as you practice, gradually listening to the practices you will find you can easily begin to experience them without the necessity of listening to the recordings.
To re-emphasize, this is an introduction to the subject to inform, and for your own personal exploration. This is not a course to train you to share these practices with others.
Please note that this course doesn’t qualify you to teach or facilitate yoga nidrā.
It is entirely independent of any of our other courses, offered by the Yoga Nidrā Network.
It is a standalone event, and of it is also a nourishing choice for anyone who has done any of our other courses, workshops or training and would like to widen and deepen the range of their experiences of yoga nidrā. The course teaches you how to practice and refine these learnings. After doing this workshop, you may wish to deepen your understanding of neuroplasticity and yoga nidra through more substantial offerings Nirlipta makes. As well as being most profound, they are unique, original creations that have come to him and which he has worked up into practices and sequences of substance and depth. It is not possible to learn these elsewhere.
