RESTORATIVE YOGA IRELAND
Mindfulness meditation is moment to moment awareness. It is being fully awake. It involves being here for the moments of our lives, without striving or judging. Bringing our fullness of attention into anything is mindfulness. This is how we bring mindfulness into our yoga practice, by being fully here & opening to the experience, moment by moment, stepping fully into the moment. There is a sense of completeness, of enough-ness. These are the moments of our lives when we feel most at home. Mindfulness involves a formal practice & an informal practice. In formal practice we take time for sitting meditation or mindful movement practices like Yoga. Informal practice is a way of life in which we meditate as we do, what we do. It involves being present IN the moments of our lives. Mindfulness, involves being in each moment as it is without judgment or striving. It's a relaxed state of awareness that observes both your inner world of thoughts, feelings and sensations, and the outer world of constantly changing phenomena without trying to control anything. Bringing space & peace into our daily lives.
A systematic guided form of meditative self inquiry that induces a profound relaxing effect on the body & mind. As the breath becomes quiet, mind & body slip into a rhythm of deep, healing rest. In Yoga Nidra you simply allow the directions to wash over you, the more effortless the better. Yoga Nidra induces the Parasympathetic nervous system - our relaxation response, the body's own healing state, where rejuvenation and revitalisation occurs. The practice can help stress, invites clarity of insight, promote emotional and physical healing. Yoga Nidra can help to transform our core negative beliefs, releasing deeply rooted habitual patterns that keep us from reaching our true potential, thus improving our health, happiness and open to self-awakening..
