Sometimes the heart sees what the eyes can’t.
“Heart Chi is considered the monarch that looks after the whole kingdom. The Spirit is stored in the heart. Healthy heart chi is related to a broad intelligence and connection with life, an understanding of its interconnectedness. Healthy heart chi allows us to experience the beauty of life.” Sarah Powers

What is Yoga Nidra ?
Le Yoga Nidra est une des huit branches du yoga et s’adresse à tous. C’est un yoga profondément relaxant qui permet de récupérer, d’améliorer le sommeil et d’explorer le subconscient.
Technique de relaxation par le retrait des sens menant à une profonde introspection, le Yoga Nidra de la tradition de la lignée Satyananda se pratique allongé au sol dans la posture de Savasana. Ce n’est pas le corps qui bouge mais l’esprit. C’est tout l’ensemble de notre être qui se dissocie des expériences avec l’extérieur pour éveiller consciemment diverses expériences, diverses sensations.
Le yoga nidra comporte un outil important pour éveiller l’esprit : Sankalpa (du sanskrit “pensée de lumière”), une résolution, sous forme d’une courte phrase positive et active, choisie par le pratiquant.
Pratiqué dans la régularité, le Yoga Nidra est un instrument puissant qui peut nous aider à changer notre vie. Enfin chaque cours est l’opportunité de créer des conditions de réceptivité rare à travers un processus au seuil de l’éveil et du sommeil conscient, un état où disparaissent toutes dualités et où l’on ressent un réel et profond bien-être.
