ONLINE Yoga Nidra – the path to radiant health with Helen Monson
In this Course you will learn the basic stages/steps of Yoga Nidra, the background and science behind it and how to use the practise in order to clear subconscious patterns, create new ones and awaken deeper states of awareness. Yoga Nidra is an effective panacea for all ailments. A few of the benefits confirmed by the medical field include increased immunity, digestive function, and better sleep. The gifts of Yoga Nidra are the releasing of old habits and thought patterns and reducing fatigue, worry, and stress.
Yoga Nidra can be practised by anyone of any age, size or shape. It is not a physical exercise, but a technique for physical rejuvenation, mental relaxation, spiritual growth, and overall wellness.
According to yogic thought, unregulated stress and the lack proper rest is the root of most physical and mental ailments today. The secret of Yoga Nidra (and to better health) lies in its ability to relieve tension and stress at its root and restore a balanced state of mind and a deeply rested body. Yoga Nidra or “yogic dreaming” is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping. It is the “going-to-sleep” stage and is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of audio instructions. It is a systematic method of inducing deep physical, mental, and emotional relaxation.
The practice is done while lying down on your back. The eyes are closed and the body is made completely comfortable. This state of consciousness is different to meditation in which concentration on a single focus is required. It involves deep relaxation with inner awareness.
Yoga Nidra will assist you in tapping into your highest potential, allow you to access dream and deep sleep states with consciousness and approach life with more empowerment.

Helen (Hridayatma) started practising yoga some 20 years ago. Her practice and life evolved to take her on the path of becoming a qualified instructor in Sivananda Yoga, Yoga Nidra (traditional Satyananda Bihar School of Yoga technique) and Meditation for Yoga Teachers.
Helen is deeply committed to her personal yoga practice and believes this is particularly important to maintain and develop when teaching to share the benefits of that with others and to offer further insight. She has practised yoga and meditation daily for over 10 years with extended stays of several months in various ashrams in India, both training and teaching yoga and meditation during that time.
Helen’s focus is on sharing the yogic teachings in their traditional form in a light hearted and engaging way whilst drawing on her own experiences too. She finds observing students benefiting from and embracing the practice of these yoga and meditation practices to be an inspiring experience.

A review from a recent student of Helen’s:
“My Yoga Nidra course with Helen was a wonderful experience. Her gentle voice really helped me to realise a deep state of relaxation. I particularly liked the way she explained the background and steps of the practice first so that I knew what to expect from each session and had a good understanding of the theory. Highly recommended!”
