Summer Course of Hatha Yoga: Asana + Pranayama + Yoga Nidra

Start Date: 19th of July

End Date: 23rd of August  

One session each week every Tuesday evening from 17:15-18:45.

For the eleventh year running, Aston’s summer course of Hatha Yoga will be offering the blend of physical (Asana) and breathing practice (Pranayama), as well as the unique practice of meditative relaxation (Yoga Nidra).  

Yoga Nidra was devised from traditional Tantric practices by Swami Satyananda Saraswati and is taught in this tradition by a Satyananda-trained Yoga teacher.  Sometimes described as Yogic sleep, Yoga Nidra is an experience beyond sleep. It systematically induces complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation while the consciousness is functioning at a deeper level of awareness.

 Those who sign up should wear a long-sleeved top and a pair of socks to the class.
