Somah: Yoga Nidra Series

This Yoga Nidra series gives you 7 sequential Yoga Nidra practices that will guide you through each of the Yogic Koshas or layers of being.

Each practice is accompanied by a short introductory talk, beginning with understanding how to work effectively with intentions for powerful transformation. You will explore the healing techniques of Yoga Nidra across traditions from an embodied and trauma-informed perspective.

What to expect:

7 expertly designed and delivered Yoga Nidra practices from internationally acclaimed senior Yoga Teacher Simone MacKay.

With more than 25+ years in social and soul work, Simone's unique method of Yoga Nidra honours the indigenous roots of dreamtime and shamanic practices, the technology of ancient tantra validated by science and rooted in nature.

Each practice stands alone as well as weaving into the wider structure, which is perfect as we can guarantee that you will want to revisit them over and over again.

Simone's Yoga Nidra has become a home for me, an anchor through times of transition as a way to calm my nervous system and as a reminder of my true nature, my shining light. The seeds that I’ve planted through my intention and practice are blossoming in ways I never would have thought imaginable.

What is Yoga Nidra?

Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation practice where you get to lie down and go on a journey from wakefulness into dreamtime, through deep restorative rest and beyond.

One practice of Yoga Nidra is said to be equivalent to 3 hours of sleep.
