11.30 am - 12.30 pm - Pranayama (yogic breathing techniques) and meditation session

Pranayama is a Sanskrit word meaning “extension of the breath or life force (prana).” Pranayama is a restorative practice that focuses on controlled breathing techniques that cultivate stillness and quiet the mind in preparation for meditation.

Practising pranayama is an excellent way to enhance your practice on every level. As we learn to harness the breath, we begin to experience a new level of mind/body awareness which improves our capacity to live in the present allowing us to pay attention to our thoughts, feelings and surroundings without attaching judgement.

Removing judgement from our thoughts strengthens our ability to control emotional reactions and invites peace and contentment into our daily lives. Flowing naturally on from the pranayama, we will try some meditation techniques focusing on how to still the mind, release stress and experience a deep inner peace.

12.30 pm - 2.30 pm - Lunch and optional walk to enjoy part of the beautiful North Wessex Downs

2.30 pm - 4.00 pm - Yoga Nidra (yogic dreaming) is a lying down meditation which takes you from the world of outer sounds step by step through body, breath and mind to your deep subconscious to release negativity, tap into creativity and positivity and explore your deeper being.
