Yoga everywhere for everyone
Yoga Nidra Workshop with James Reeves
Sunday 24th September
- Date: Sunday 24th September
- 2:00pm – 5:00pm
We are very excited to have our first Yoga Nidra workshop at Yoga Reading with the fantastic James Reeves founder of Restful Being
yoga nidra: how to access your deepest, wisest self
Occasionally in our everyday lives we catch a glimpse of our deepest, wisest self, and typically it feels like a shot of inexplicable bliss, or a moment of sudden, unanticipated insight – an ‘epiphany’. These experiences often come in situations where we have unknowingly ‘let go’ – sometimes on holiday, maybe as we surface from a deep sleep, or perhaps simply in a second’s gaze out the window amidst a busy train journey.
In this workshop we’re going to explore what causes these moments and how they relate to ‘yoga’. We will learn how to readily access this state of being and use this aspect of our greater self to enhance, navigate and find peace within our lives.
Over this three-hour workshop, you will:
- learn research-based & neuroscience-founded techniques to establish a quiet mind
- explore how surfing between the stages of sleep can be used to effortlessly enter deep meditative states
- be taken beyond the mind and uncover your essential self as already peaceful,
experiencing your interconnectedness with all of life
Join James and learn how to naturally unveil what lies constant and unyielding behind all aspects of your experience: presence, peace, a natural joy and heart-felt contentment.
“James’ heartfelt gentleness and masterful wisdom shine through in his teachings… His expertise lies in his ability to light the path for others to find their own way.” Richard Miller, PhD. Founder, Executive Director and President of the Board of Directors Integrative Restoration Institute (IRI)
Founder of Restful Being and the Integrative Restoration Institute’s Director For Europe, James has studied with a wide range of teachers, taking favourite insights and practices from the schools of Hatha, Tantra, Advaita Vedanta and Sankhya philosophy. James’ greatest inspiration has been the work of Richard Miller, PhD. Richard founded the Integrative Restoration Institute (IRI) in the US and established the iRest Yoga Nidra protocol, a system of deep relaxation and meditative inquiry. James is currently the only IRI-sponsored teacher trainer in Europe. He has worked with organizations such as Oxford University, Oxfam and Khiron House Trauma Clinic, and even been jetted off to the Oscars (though not down the red carpet, sadly). James is also a regular teacher of online yoga classes at www.ekhartyoga.com
