Yoga Nidra, derived from the Tantras, is a powerful technique where we learn to relax consciously. Yoga (meaning Union) Nidra (meaning Sleep) is often referred to as psychic sleep or deep relaxation It is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation, by turning inwardly, away from outer experience, to assist transforming yourself and your life from within.
In this relaxed state all of the body’s systems are able to function more efficiently. This state is called the hypnagogic state.
Practicing Yoga Nidra is simple and easy to follow. It helps you to change unwanted habits, achieve your goals, improve your life and open up your mind to new possibilities, by tapping into your intuition and subconscious mind, which is very receptive to positive suggestions.
The subconscious mind is a very obedient disciple and immediately carries out orders that we put to it.
Whilst lying on your back in Savasana, you will be guided through a simple process to relax your body and mind. All you have to do, is listen to the sound of the voice.
In each session, you will repeat your sankalpa (affirmation, resolution). It should be a short statement or positive affirmation chosen by you, phrased in positive language and in the present tense.
Through repetition of this positive intention you can transform your life from within.
When instructed to do so, you should repeat your sankalpa mentally three times.
You should use the same sankalpa until your goal has been achieved.

Laura’s strategy is a combination of achieving a balance in your life through yoga meditation and a healthy diet.
Powerful tools that when combined can help you take your mind and body in positive directions. The pressure of fast modern living takes its toll on our ability to lead a balanced life creating stress and anxiety which can cause a variety of disturbances in the body. Stress contributes to your body’s production of Adrenalin and Cortisol the ‘fight or flight’ hormones that affect your metabolism, blood pressure and immune system.
When you have too much cortisol in your blood your body’s immunities weaken and your muscles and body tissue suffers.
